Day 1 - Embarkation Back on our Med cruise in 2011 we booked this cruise without knowing it was a Pixar special cruise. It was a WONDERful surprise to have the trip made special by the Pixar extras. We live fairly close to the port so it is only around a 30 minute drive. We were at the port and boarding in no time. There were some of the CARS there to great us. Since we live so close we didnt leave super early because we didnt want to wait to board. This cruise it was us 4 girls including me, my mom, my aunt and my grandma who is 82 years young. The terminal area was a ghost area when we arrived and it was only around 12:15ish. We were using a transporter chair for my grandma to board the ship since she could not walk those long distances. It was so easy to board and we walked on and over to Parrot Cay for lunch. Even though we were told it was full they were able to accomodate us so we did not have to take my grandma up to Beach Blanket Buffet. Throughout the cruise the staff was extremely helpful and accomodating with my grandma and they were so friendly it was much appreciated. After lunch and an unexpected emergency trip back to the house we were finally relaxed and officially on vacation. We made it through the mandatory boat safety drill and up to the Adventures Away party at the Goofy Pool. Before we knew it we were getting ready for dinner as we were sailing out of the Port of Los Angeles. The weather was beautiful and the views amazing. Our first dinner was in Tritons where we met our serving team of Reagan, Asst server Ava and our favorite Head Server Paulo. We enjoyed this team throughout the cruise and found them extremely friendly. There were a few new items that were Pixar related throughout the cruise including this cute popcorn bucket. After a slightly stressfull first day we were all settled in and enjoying our vacation at last. I was definetly a foodie on this trip and took pictures of everything we ate which became routine and quite comical as we went along with the cruise. I wont post all my pictures here but if you are interested in seeing additional pictures and videos I will have them posted in my blog (check my signature). Hopefully I will get posting the additional days but there are so many pictures it might take longer to get through. I will say this was a great cruise and everyone in my party enjoyed it.
