Love your photos and I want that pizza! It was SO good. We ate so much of it. I never made it inside the Cove Cafe.

Cute pic with Donald. Adorable. You don't look crazed, you look happy.

Stalker status? Never!

Ozzy was planning your bday dessert. Points for effort.

You loved those baked potatoes.

I think Parrot Cay is so festive and fun! Perfect for night.
Whenever I have that wide eyed smiley look I think I look crazed


Those baked potatoes were sooooo good! whoever was making them on the Fantasy needs to go get a lesson from the Wonder's cooks. I had one and did not repeat

That cute Josh, I loved that he got in the line with everybody

Its pretty neat. We just booked Mexico and I wasn't sure I'd book again. I think there are good meds available for sea sickness that won't make you drowsy too.

The Wonder potato trumped the Fantasy potato? Don't tell the Fantasy folks.

He had fun. Took him a while to loosen up but once he did, he was good to go. Thank you for getting those photos.

Wide eyed and smiling is what Disney is all about!

Well, we did it. Booked for October 18 at this point. My sister thinks her family will come along, too, which would be so great! If that week doesn't work for them we may switch, but for now that is the one we did.

Another great update Pam! Welcome back from your trip.


I guess I picked the wrong date in October if everyone is on the next week.

Darn, that would have been really fun to meet up! I think all 3 five nighters are going to sell out. Even with some rooms potentially on hold, things are moving quickly.

Tell me about it! I'm starting to panic as I haven't heard back from my TA about upgrading our 10/18 to a Cat 5. Verandas are already gone for the 10/4, I hear!

Loving your trip report!

Thank you. You never know if people are really enjoying it or making fun of you.


Fingers crossed for your Cat 5.

Erin, we picked the October 4th sailing since our 2012 MR cruise also set sail on the 4th (of March)!

I don't blame you. Those secret verandah cabins are awesome! We should stop talking about them though.

I think we will. A meet thread has been started as we'll as an FB group. I met so many cool ladies on the FB before our cruise; it was a blast. Yours has a meet thread too I think.

Sorry for the delay, back to night.

Before I get back to it I forgot to tell you all about an issue we had with Joshua’s soccer ball. Before we headed out for pirate night, I decided to pack a bag for the next day in Cozumel. I knew we’d be out late and I wouldn’t want to to do it in the morning. While I was packing the bag, I noticed that Joshua’s soccer ball was missing. We for sure had packed it for this trip! I called down to guest services to see if they had possibly confiscated it at the port. I called down and got a somewhat rude CM. She said if it had been confiscated there would be a paper from the Port of Miami informing us of that and where we could pick it up upon our return to Miami. There was no paper. I had completely unpacked out bags and stored our luggage. I took out the suitcases and reopened them. They were totally empty. I called down to guest services and got another CM on the phone who was very understanding. He said he’d call the port and get back with me……



After dinner and some fun pirate conga, it was time for the party portion of the evening. We decided to skip going down to Deck 9 and participate from Deck 10. Our tween tablemates joined us too.

Right before the party stared, Pam also joined us. Pam, where did you go after dinner?

The party consisted of some dance music, a pirate fight, and Mickey coming to save the day. To be honest, I don’t remember it all that well. I think had we gone down and danced it would have been more fun, more lively. We did dance some from where we were.

Some pics. That’s Joshua’s head.









Now I could see fine until the guy next to me decided to put his child on his already ginormous frame while laying his arm almost on top of me and totally across me. I mean, c’mon dud, put your kid in front of you. He literally pushed his arm into mine. Big jerk. Hope he’s not reading. Or do I? Notice my earring. Selfie of me with him. LOL!





See Mickey? squint and look closer,



Finally it was time for fireworks. All we had to do was turn around and we had a totally great view!









Joshua said that he notched a Carnival Cruise in the water around sunset. I bet they were trying to get a view of our fireworks. I don’t blame them as the fireworks were amazing!





After the fireworks it was time for the buffet. I was really looking forward to some fresh crepes.

The buffet was in Beach Blanket Buffet:




Turkey legs anyone?



More offerings:



And finally my delicious crepe with vanilla ice cream and fresh coconut. OMG to die for! And more pineapple. I can’t tell you how fabulous the pineapple was all week.



We chatted outside in the warm night air with Pam and enjoyed our dessert. We said our goodbyes as we had an early day planned in Mexico the next day.

We got a towel monkey. I think it looks like a turkey. We also arrived to a message from guest services regarding the soccer ball. This was his new soccer ball he received for his bar mitzvah. It was the newest Nike premiere league ball......



Up next, Pam’s version. I am sure I left a ton out.

To be continued…..

Really, what's with people that don't understand personal space? I'm so short and it never fails that someone crowds in and blocks my view. Enjoyed your Pirate night pics.


What, you left us hanging with the soccer ball? Nice way to keep us coming back for more.
