    That was very neat to watch Up on the Funnel Vision and be out right next to the pool.

    Oh what a tangled web we weave when we first practise to deceive.

    I'm waiting for the next installment. I suspect there is a lot more of this story to come.

    Foolish Mortals, indeed!

    What a train wreck, it is making me a bit sad actually reading about it. Kind of painful to watch I'd imagine.

    The E's LOVE funnel vision.

    I confess, we've never actually hung out and watched it! We are always next door at the adult pool.

    :rotfl2:

    The boys though...they will turn into prunes watching movie after movie after movie if they can.

    Or at least they would then, who knows now, they might be "tool cool".

    Sniff.

    Josh does look cozy in the hot tub.

    60 days! :cheer2: I'd be excited too! I guess it's 59 now. Is this the cruise with Cynthia?

    I think Funnel vision is brilliant. The sea air coupled with a Disney movie, heaven!








    The pizza is incredible. Maybe it's the venue? pixiedust: I can imagine celery would taste good on board. :rotfl:


    Yay for your PiF date. That makes it so real. :thumbsup2

    Joshua's friend was super sweet. Very nice girl. Played soccer too.

    Tritons was delicious. I'll get there soon. It's a gorgeous restaurant too. Like the dimmer lighting. It was very relaxing.

    I agree, Disney really does have something for everyone. They cover all of their bases. If the weather allows, I will always choose to be outdoors vs indoor. I think that's why a verandah is so appealing so I get the best of both worlds. ​

    :goodvibes Kindred spirits. ​


    I'll take character pics if you try a movie on deck. Deal? ;)





    Its amazing. I think you'd really like it. It almost feels surreal, like a dream, being on a Disney cruise, watching a movie on the open seas. ​


    :rotfl2: Yes that exactly. :rotfl2:


    I don't want you sad. ;) I try to warn you but be aware it gets worse. They kid and her boyfriend were just so totally obnoxious. Maybe I should paint a less empathetic picture. :p

    He loved that hot tub, was in it daily. :thumbsup2

    I don't watch Funnel vision in the pool. I'm on a nice lounge chair. :cloud9: The idea of wet and windy sounds terrible but the kids didn't seem to mind. Crazies. ​

    You're so right, its surreal being in the middle of the ocean watching a movie on an open deck. And we were the only ones out there I think. Just an awesome thing :)

    I have never watched a movie on deck.

    Putting it on the list for our 8/16 cruise.

    Its really mellow and wonderful. Let me know what you think. It's not exciting but when you really think about it, at least for me, being on the water and Disney are two of my most favorite things. Sharing both with people I love? Nirvana. I swear I don't work for Disney. :lmao:

    Sometimes you can't make this stuff up! :rotfl2:

    I am anxiously awaiting the unraveling of the table mates. I am so into drama like that! :rotfl2:

    Beautiful pics of the boat. It looks like a simply amazing afternoon and I'm glad that you, Pam, Joshua, and Ellie look like you are having a fab time!!!!!

    I know, right?! I've seen many people post panic attack. I'd say most are humble if nothing else. This was not the vibe I was getting. ​




    :lmao:I love you for admitting you like the drama! :thumbsup2 Ive got pretty mixed signals about posting it. Thank you. :goodvibes It was part of our cruise certainly not the focus but people enjoy train wrecks. I mean who wants to focus on escargot when you've got this? :laughing:

    The afternoon/evening was fabulous. Such a great time. I really love the freedom the ship gave Joshua. ​

    table mate dram is always interesting. I had some on my last cruise too way back in 2008. I was in a group of people I know from another message board. Some things worked out well others not so well. There were some problems with the arrangement of the tables the first night because of some problems with shore side, apparently the shore side dinning manager quit after another group got to demanding or something like that. The serving team had some problems the first night, but then when don’t they on the first night really. Some of the people at the table I was at got really annoying with special requests they were making things like Cheese from Palo every night at the start of dinner and with desert, crème brules every night for two people, chicken wings that they used to have on the parrot cay menu every night, banana bread every night. The head server one night had to go all the way across the ship one night to get some chicken wings form the sports bar. After all this you would except these people to be grateful, well one night the head server came over to find out how things were going and they just about dragged her and the serving team over the coals, I wanted to crawl under the table after that and hide. The next night since there was an extra seat at one of our other table’s because someone was having some family issues, I joined them, for the rest of the cruise. Also two of the people reduced the tip they had prepaid by half, so when the rest of us found out about that we all over tipped by a lot to make up for them.

    The last couple of nights were fine as some of the real problems at that table had Palo reservations the last two nights.

    I just found this TR and am enjoying it. My 11 yo DS and I are going on the Wonder in Nov with this same itinerary. I was nervous about how he would be with it just being him and mom and no sisters or dad but I feel a lot better about that now! Both sisters are in college and DH doesn't travel so I just decided why not go anyway while DS is young. Thank you!

    Two cruise year? Lucky girl! :cool1:



    Tablemate drama is a trip. Thankfully their drama wasn't aimed at us, if anything they were very nice, just totally messed up. Our server was beyond kind with them, wrapping food to go etc....he was very respectful and kept his mouth shut with regard to any opinions even when one was obviously totally hammered.

    Yours sounds terrible and embarrassing! :scared1: I'm glad you got to move and didn't have to endure every meal with them. I would be mortified sitting with people that reduced the tip. That was very cool of the rest of you to make up for the reduced tip. :thumbsup2



    :welcome: and :thanks: for joining in. My son had a total blast. He never really loved the kids club but made it work for him. It was a great trip, the perfect blend of mother/son and friend time. I'd do a cruise just he and I again in a heartbeat.

    We really enjoyed the itinerary. Both Cozumel and CC were beautiful. ​

    yeah it was cool of us to up our tips for them as none of us had any problems with them at all. Just the few poel that seemed to take the attitude that I'm paying for this and I want to have extra special service.

    One can only imagine AC would not have passed a breath test after that fall lol...or worse a blood test!

    How nice that Joshua found a friend :-)

    I love that lamp in the room also. I am glad we have different plug system in UK I don't trust myself it would stay lol..I love the cushions also but they were quite pricey to buy something like $300!

    Hope you enjoy dinner and funnel vision. I wonder what state your tablemates will arrive in....

    Yes, I am not sure yet how this will work out. I still have my heart set on the Eastbound Transatlantic next year, but the prices have gone crazy and I doubt that even if there will be some discounted rates after the final payment date that they will be within my budget. Plan B is a Florida roadtrip with a little taster cruise on the Dream. In December we are then planning a seven night cruise on the Wonder out of Galveston plus a week or so at Walt Disney World.

    I watched AC attack cast members during the episode. She was swinging at her significant other. She punched a cast member before they actually got her physically restrained. She was screaming and flailing. Not like any panic attack that I've seen. More like a psychotic episode. It didn't even look like a drunk episode. It was like she just blinked. Then when we were at Castaway my DH noticed that they had a cast member escorting them everywhere. Sort of like a reverse body guard. He even rode the tram with them.
