The cheating couple was just so interesting. You could tell they hadn't known each other for long and didn't necessarily take the cruise together because there was a sort of newness and unfamiliarity between. I figured they just met on the cruise. Maybe they had chatted online and met on the cruise, who knows but their body language was obvious. Sorry I read people for a living and it's hard to turn that off when people watching. g Anyway...they met before the gym and were a little more formal with each other but then after they were sweating and chatty with us. So odd. Imagine how uber shocked I was when I saw one of the guys with his wife. Cheating on a Disney cruise just seems so dirty.

I drank every day too. I drink every day on every vacation. It's vacation! I don't get blotto but I do imbibe.

Oh yeah, it was our table mates and after bright star/star bright it gets even worse!!!

Good job on sleeping in and having pizza for breakfast.

I go into panic mode towards the end of a vacation as well. Glad to see I'm not the only one.

And I can't wait to see what happens next.

Sleeping in is gooooood! I am looking forward to a little of that myself sometime soon...maybe not on this next cruise, though- this is more of an up and at em kind of a trip- Alaska, I mean.

OK- you are KILLLLLLLLING me with the suspense!! What did they do now???

And I can't remember if I posted- but wow what a great night!! I recall having the SAME experience on the Dream (dancing like maniacs and no one else really there). I don't know why, but on shorter cruises (that I have been on) it seems people arent dancin in there. TOTALLY the opposite on the 7 night ones. Always loads of dancin buddies- we had an especially great time on the Fantasy over NYE- all ages, all dancin together- it was my FAVORITE!!!!!

I've been MIA since the end of May and thought I'd get caught up on the tablemates tonight only to find we're hanging in suspense. At least I didn't have too many pages to get through.

Your cruise has been way more entertaining (people watching) than the ones I've been on or I've just been oblivious to what's going on around me.

Sounds like a nice day! Love a pool, relaxing, sleep in kind of day.

The cheating couple is TOO BIZARRE for words. Seriously?! Blech.

I cannot wait to hear about the antics of your table mates...what did they get themselves into now?!??!

You had it correct, bright star bright star.

I'm with you, why do the adults think it's ok to bring their kids in the adult only area. If you want to be with your kids go to the family pool...

That couple was too much. You don't think it's possible he was traveling with his sister? You definitely think they were married? I hate the idea of a dad sleeping around while on vacation with his kid. So low.

Chase and I had just grabbed snacks from the quick service and were walking on the upper deck when we heard the call. I knew from reading posts here that Bright Star was an emergency call, so we walked toward the commotion. We ended up with a table overlooking the kiddie pool just in time to see the whole fiasco play out. I couldn't believe it when I saw that it was your crazy table mates. Talk about dinner and a show.

This was the day we had booked Palo brunch. Good thing we canceled because I slept until 11:15

I quickly read over the navigator and saw there was a Captain's signing in Treasure Ketch at 1215, I think. I quickly went up and there were hardly any people waiting. More did show up, but I was feeling bad for the Captain.

Looks like I walked outside to go to my room, I wanted to get my wave phone.







Then went up to BBB where they were having a seafood buffet

And they also had this fish curry that was fabulous



I tried the bread pudding but it wasn't that good. The raspberry whipped thing next to it was divine. I almost went back for another one but Jenny has texted that she was at the adult pool so I headed that way.



We were subjected to the worst live musician on the planet. I'm not exaggerating.

Oh I love the Captain signing! I always try and line for this how odd there was no line! Mind you it's usually in the evening maybe folks missed it on the navigator. Did you get anything signed? Yummy buffet fish curry is divine. Lol re that musician. I think he plays at our local church...

I cannot believe that one set of tablemates caused so much drama on one single cruise. You would expect crazy would be spread out on a ship that size and not necessarily concentrated to one group of people!

We saw a lot of little kids in the adult pool area on our cruise. Lots of people cutting through (which, to be honest, seemed to be partially caused by a flaw in ship design regarding elevator placement on the Fantasy). But we also saw people bring in and park strollers next to their loungers. I guess because they thought if the baby/child is sleeping or being quiet, then the baby/child really isn't "there"?

I love babies and I have two kids myself who cruise with us, but I never bring them anywhere on the ship that they are not supposed to be. They are fine with that and so am I.

I LOVE all your food porn, Pam! Thanks a bunch! Only 1 more month to go for me- I can not WAIT to get onboard the Wonder next month!

Really awful about the World's worst musician- sure hope he's gone when I get there!!
