yes, we made it onto the cruise. most of you knew i waited until the last minute to book my cruise ... well we didnt make the 7-night, but we got the 4-night (which worked out well cuz we went a little overboard on souveniers and drinks onboard so we probably couldnt afford the 7-night)
well we got to the port as early as we could. im glad we did cuz it gave me and ben a chance to explore the ship (it was my second trip, bens first)
we went to our room and grabbed our suits so we could hit the pool before the manditory safety drill.
we got to the pool and found this :
yup ... rain ... o well
we wandered around the ship some more ...
after some lightning strikes a litle too close for comfort, we headed back to the room to relax (we had been being tourists nonstop for the past 8 days)
after the drill and dinner (at animators palate) it was time for bed ...
after a much needed deep sleep, we awoke to the beautiful blue waters of nassau.
we did a little shopping and headed back to the ship for some swimming and spa time. after that, we watched enchanted ( my new favorite disney movie )in the buena vista theatre
after dinner (at parrot cay) it was time for hercules : the musical.
it reminded me a lot of the aladdin show at DCA. hades was hilarious, panic and pain almost made me pee my pants, and the guy who played phil was awesome!!
as day 2 came to an end, the excitment built along the ship for the next day ... we were going to castaway cay!!
o wow ... this was the most exciting day. i was up at about 8 and ready by 8:15. i was wasting no time.
we ate breakfast on the top deck and got a spectacular view ...
yup, thats the flying dutchman
we raced to the beach so we could snorkel before all the kids showed up
we rented the snorkel gear and got into the FREEZING water ...
i took these pictures with my digital camera using a waterproof case my mom got me for xmas ... best gift i ever got (as these pictures will prove)
this is an actually ride vehicle from the 20,000 leagues ride at MK ... most of you probably knew that, but for those who didnt
view from the water :
we were in the water for about 2 hours before heading to the adult beach for a couple hours, then it was right back to snorkeling
as the sun set on our magical day, we got a little sad that our vacation was almost over. we only had 3 more days before we had to head back to california.
the show for the night was "golden mickeys". it was really cute and full of all the disney characters
our last full day on the ship so we took advantage of the spa, the pool, the movies (we saw national treasure 2 , and dan in real life) and ate like crazy (you would not believe the buffets)
goodnight disney cruise ... see you soon
