Yeah, it is going to be hard to go back to a non-double dip...and I guess it may be a spoiler, but NO we never did run into Captain Jack. Not on Pirate night, not on the other CC day...nuthin. Oh well...there is a next time, right.... (If I need to brainwash myself that I need a reason to go on another cruise, well there I go! )

That is so funny!

Great update!!!! I love all of the pictures!!!! Cant' wait for the next update!

I actually knew about the thumb...Ron pointed it out to me yesterday and I intended to fix it (that's what I get for photoshopping after a long night of work!) well, actually I did fix it, I just fell asleep and never swapped out the pics. But..then I thought I'd just leave it and see who noticed , but Ron thought it was too creepy, so I did mean to put the thumb-less one in there...and well, now I just can't.
I did a horrible job shopping it too, I spent about 2 minutes on it, I just wanted to get the installment up since it had been so long....
It is a huge inside joke between Ron and I, many years ago we were watching TV very late at night...and saw this horrible movie where this guy had two heads, one white, one black....It was one of those trainwreck movies , ya know we couldn't stop watching it..and this reminded us of it...
If you dare: The Thing With Two Heads

Yes...it's for real, check Netflix!

Perrier Blues

As we returned to the rooms after a nice day at Castaway Cay, when we arrived the first thing we noticed there were some FE gifts out in the hall beside 6022. We decided we had better move the FE from 6018 to 6019 in hopes that people would see it (since that door was right by 6022, 6018 was not). As we moved the FE down the hall, we noticed that something seemed different about our doors.

Can you tell???




Yep, our Secret Mickey had been there, and they left us some cool magnets. Here are the close-ups:












We also had lots of goodies in our FE, some little gifts from our SM too!

The kids changed suits and Ron took them up to the Mickey Pool. It had been closed, we are happy to report it was now open (and aside from UFO’s...unidentified floating objects-which there seemed to be many this cruise- it would remain open).

Meanwhile, I fed Sarah and put her down for a nap, while watching the best show to ever grace a TV screen:





(If you are watching this television program, life is good!)







I also took a short nap as we sailed out to sea. It was hard the first few days, getting used to being awake during the daytime hours and sleeping at night.

Our plans for the evening were to catch the early show, and then off to dinner at Palo for us and to the Lab, Club, and Flounder’s for the kids. I got about an hour and a half of sleep before everyone returned form up on deck, and it was time to get ready for the evening. First thing, we had to give Sarah a bath, since she was covered in sunscreen. Obviously we did not bring her baby tub from home, and a sponge bath just wasn’t going to cut it, so we had to improvise. She can’t sit alone yet so just holding her up in the tub didn’t work and I had to eventually climb in with her and hold her to get her bathed. I needed help getting back out of that tiny thing, I was stuck pretty good (well I did have a baby in my hands, does that count as an excuse?)

The kids showered, Savannah put on her PJ’s since she would be attending Goofy’s PJ Party in the club right after the show. Sarah was in her PJ’s too!



When we headed out for the show, more FE goodies!


The first few days there was stuff in there every time we turned around. We popped into 19 to drop off the FE goodies and all of a sudden Calvin was there. He told us he wanted to give the kids a towel animal demonstration, and we were all for that!

First he showed them a couple of simple steps and began to construct a lobster:




Then the kids showed what they learned!




And finally, together they made a cute puppy.


That was so much fun, Calvin really was the greatest host, I’m telling you!

We headed down to the Walt Disney Theater for the show and managed a seat on the left side at the front of the back section by the rail, what would turn into our favorite viewing location. John Charles came out first, singing a Buffett tune, which scored him more big points in our book. In fact, he claims if you turn on a faucet in Orlando, Jimmy Buffett comes out. That’s fairly accurate, I’d say! After John Charles was Freddy Fusion with a science/magic extravaganza. The kids really enjoyed it. Afterwards we ran straight up to the club to drop off Savannah for the PJ Party. Brendan headed off to the Lab next, he was going to join the kids for movie night in the Buena Vista Theatre (they watched College Road Trip). We strolled around a bit with Sarah, and then dropped her off at Flounder’s Reef Nursery. This was the first time she was going to be alone with a caregiver (except Grandma!) but I was at ease leaving her there, the staff was so friendly (and hey…she’s my third you know, so we’re much more relaxed now….) I’m just kidding, but we checked her in and there were quite a few kids inside, about six others. They were mostly young toddlers inside, but there was one other baby, a boy that looked a little younger than Sarah. We handed over her bag and explained her bottles and feeding schedule to Kwesi (from Trinidad). I’ll admit I was surprised to see a male caregiver there, don’t ask me why, but he was great. He then took her inside and we said goodbye for the evening:



After dropping Sarah, we headed right up to Palo. I was plenty hungry so we were in the right place for sure. As we approached the desk to check in, we noticed two other couples waiting on the bench to be seated. I wondered if they had reservations or if they were walk-ins. Finally the host arrived and we checked in. He asked us to relax and have a seat, as it would be a few minutes for our table, and then he seated one of the other couples. As we sat, some workmen were bringing in an oil painting, and we watched them decide where it was supposed to go. That was interesting to watch. So we were entertained while we waited. In a way. The other couple was seated next and then we only had to wait a couple more minutes before we were shown to our table. It was in the same area we always seemed to sit, against the windows just to the right of the kitchen. As we sat down Ron said “Aren’t you going to say hi to your friend?” I looked around aimlessly for a while before I spotted Erica and Lionel at a table right across from us. D’oh! I had walked right by them too when we arrived at the table and never even saw them there (I’m clueless). So of course I told Ron “NO! They will think I’m rude for not saying anything when we walked by!” (I did wave to them later as they left, so I wasn't totally rude!)

Our waiter, Sebastian greeted us, and immediately he seemed familiar, both his name and his face, and I realized I must have read about him on the boards. This was great news to me, as I was sure anything I had read was positive (and it had to have been, he was a fantastic server!) As I looked over the menus, the first thing I noticed was that the Toblerone Martini I had last cruise on the Wonder was not listed. None of the other cocktails really jumped out at me, and although I’m sure I could have just requested the drink, I just decided against having an alcoholic beverage and instead just had iced tea. Ron followed suit, just ordering Diet Coke. Judging by how I looked in the photos taken of me that evening (which you won't find here!), all the booze from earlier had probably not worn off....so that was likely a good decision!

Sebastian brought our drinks and the Antipasto Freddo (the Palo signature pre-appetizer plate of prosciutto, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and parmesan cheese cubes). After he dropped those off, he also brought the bread selection and three dips (red pepper, garlic aioli, and olive). We devoured that quickly as we pondered the menu for our course selections. For appetizers, Ron wanted pizza, so he chose a Margherita. I chose the same old-same old for myself, the Grilled Portobello Mushroom with Polenta and Shallot sauce. We also decided on dinner, we love Palo’s steaks, and it was basically a decision between the Beef Tenderloin Palo with the red wine sauce or the gorgonzola sauce. I decided to try the gorgonzola sauce this time and Ron followed suit and made the same selection. We also told Sebastian we would be having the Chocolate Soufflés for dessert…and that I might desire more than one dessert so we might need to see the dessert menu or tray. With our ordering out of the way, we enjoyed the atmosphere and elegant surroundings.

In fact, although we were at the window, since it was so late (our reservations were for 8:30) and dark we couldn’t see much….but it had begun to rain rather ferociously. It actually really contributed to the romantic atmosphere to watch the raindrops pelt against the window and the wind blow in gusts across the deck. It’s hard to see the rain outside due to the reflection of the restaurant, but here is a picture:




While we were enjoying Mother Nature’s show, our appetizers arrived. The pizza was as good as ever, and I remarked to Ron how much the kids might like to try it. My mushroom appetizer was just as wonderful as I remembered, and I was looking forward to eating the mushroom appetizer from Animator’s Palate that is very similar later in the week. After our appetizers were dispatched to our stomachs in short order, Sebastian brought us a new course in the meal, it is very similar to the frosty alcoholic lemon drink served at the end of the meal. This one was minty, but not overwhelmingly so. It was intended as a palate cleanser, and was fantastic! We both like it more than the lemon variety. So now at Palo, you get not just one tiny Polar Cup, but two!!!

After finishing that off, we did have to wait for quite a while for our entrees. Sebastian apologized for the delay, expressing to us that Palo has a new Chef and that kinks were still being ironed out. After quite a wait (at least a half hour or so) our steaks arrived. Here’s Ron with his on display:



Sebastian also brought us a sampler of the Lobster Ravioli to sample. I’m not too big on seafood that isn’t fried, but I did try it. I’m sure it was delicious if you like that sort of thing. It just wasn’t my cup of tea so that plate rapidly made its way over to Ron’s side of the table. He said they were tasty.

The presentation of our entrees was certainly very attractive. The steak was not covered with the sauce, just grazed with it. There was also a cute little potato soufflé accompaniment. At least I think that’s what it was, I could be wrong. It was good. The steak, we were less than impressed with. Mine, ordered medium-well was actually dry and tough…very certainly well done inside, but not charred outside. The cut of the meat just did not seem as good either. There seemed to be fatty spots and even gristle. It was definitely disappointing. Ron noticed the difference in quality also, even though his filet, ordered medium, was more accurately cooked. I’m not one to complain, though as I know how hard it can be to cook a thick slab of any meat medium-well and get it just right. We had also selected the gorgonzola sauce instead of the red wine sauce and that was a misstep also. We much preferred the red wine sauce. The gorgonzola sauce was unremarkable.

Our mild disenchantment with our entrées did not last long, however, as we anticipated our decadent chocolate desserts. As Sebastian was chatting with us, we mentioned how much the kids would like to try the pizza and a soufflé, he said he would have one of each prepared for us to take with us for the kids! Awesome! You know they would love that.

A little while later came our pies de resistance…the Palo Chocolate Soufflé with Chocolate and Vanilla sauces.

Ron shows it off:



Now this was every bit as good as we remembered, and then some. I had remembered that I was going to order a second dessert, and even though no “extras” made it to our table either, that was forgotten rather quickly when faced with savoring the silky rich deliciousness in front of us.

This thing is so, so, so, so good!!!!



We were both members of the licked-clean plate club as far as our dessert goes. Ron is not big on overly decadent and rich sweets, but he likes the soufflé. And to me, it is heaven in a ramekin. You can’t go wrong, I promise.

After we finished that, and were presented with our after-dinner drink of the lemon Polar Cup, Sebastian brought us the dessert plate with the soufflé for the kids and a cute little basket made out of foil containing the pizza for them. They had only snacked from the counters up on deck 9 for dinner many hours ago, so I’m sure they would really appreciate this thoughtfulness!! While the food may have been a tad disappointing, his service was outstanding and we let him know next time we would request him as our server. We had meant that we would do so next time we were going to be there for dinner, but we would be surprised much sooner than that!

We waddled out of Palo stuffed to the gills nonetheless, and waited for the elevator. When it arrived, more workmen exited. Guess Dry Dock was still in progress. We didn’t really have a lot of time left before we had to pick up Sarah, since dinner took longer than usual. It actually took about 2 ½ hours this time. We probably would have strolled on deck or relaxed in the Quiet Cove for a short while if it wasn’t for the rain. So, instead we headed down to deck 5 to round up all the munchkins. Flounders were our first stop; Sarah was sleeping soundly in the back. She had been very good, and we were certainly happy with how well she was cared for and I was now extremely comfortable with leaving her there.

Ron took Sarah to get Brendan in the Lab, and I went to get Savannah in the club. In the club, although they were not using the new Radio-Frequency (RIF?) technology wristbands they were supposedly installing during dry dock, they did change the setup of the club. There used to be a big oval shaped desk that you entered and exited around when dropping/retrieving children, now it was just a straight-across counter. It really did seem to work better as there were clearly defined lines and it just wasn’t a big mess of folks clustered around the desk anymore. I went in and looked around. I didn’t find her right away. The place was somewhat of a madhouse, the 3-4 and 5-7 groups were all there together, and the kiddos must have been in a free-play mode cause it was a bit crazy. A couple of our cruise mates did have some incidents involving the club, and I was surprised to hear that when we got back, as that definitely was not what our experience was with the Oceaneers Club. Aside them the pandemonium that ensues when the two younger groups are together, we were very happy with the club structure and activities and Savannah had an absolute blast. She really loved the PJ party and dancing with Goofy, and afterwards they had colored pillowcases and even done face painting. She was of course, a cat….her absolute favorite animal.





After rounding up all the young'ns, we headed back up to our rooms. Outside of 22 the blower was at full blast attempting to dry the carpet from whatever foul liquids had been cascading out there earlier in the evening. It smelled a little sour out there (at best) and we no longer doubted that 6022 was not a room we wanted to be in.
We brought the Palo feast into the kids’ room and watched them devour the soufflé.

And a little more sauce…and a little more…and a little bit more…..



Thanks Sebastian!!!




The lobster critter Calvin was showing the kids how to make is not who greeted them surprisingly. The puppy they all made together was still holding down the fort over on the table.

And he was making sure to steer clear from the carnivorous alligator up on Brendan’s bed. Although how scary is a gator with chocolate eyes?? (Or is he a crocodile? I never was very good at telling the difference!)







Didn’t take long for the exhausted and full kids to pass out:






Over in our room, we discovered the rest of the family….now this guy is a cool croc!




Are two days already gone????? Its going faster than even I imagined it would!

Next: I Wish Lunch Would Last Forever

LOL! I did eventually go and change out the pictures. Ron wanted me to. It really creeped him out too much! So now the floating thumb will live on in infamy....

Thanks for reading!

See! You're famous! Or.....well...your FE gift is!
I'm going to assume you're referring to the bag and not the Chick-O-Stick. The bag of goodies, the kids loved. The Chick-O-Sticks...were MINE. I snatched every last one of them and ate them ALL. And I have no remorse either!

Glad you're enjoying the report. Be sure to check back next month when I get around to GC day.....

Well...he did bring us the extra Lobster Ravioli, so I thought for sure that we would have some additional dessert selections come our way, especially since I mentioned that I had wanted more than one dessert....and it very well may have been his intention...however, I don't think it was all his fault.
As I mentioned, we were there a loooong long time and the pacing of the meal seemed off. By the time we reached dessert, the restaurant was emptying out pretty good, and frankly by that point we didnt care so much about getting an extra panna cotta. He mentioned the new chef and how they were trying to iron out all the kinks, and it really did seem as if there was a big transition going on. Thinking back on it now, I don't think our dining experience was all so bad, but we were dissapointed at the time, for sure.
In fact, I listen to the Dis Unplugged podcast, two of the guys who produce that program had gone on the 3-night right before us...They had a pretty horrible cruise experience (including getting trapped in their stateroom when workers just decided to rip up and install new carpet outside of their door without telling them..)and they had an absolutley atrocious experience at Palo. They were there for 3 hours and the food was terrible. So after hearing that I may have cast our visit in a more positive light....

Sea Day...coming up! It was a busy one!
