Who needs land anyway when you’re cruising with Mickey? We saw him often wandering about the ship.
He was always happy to stop and pose with passengers.
The first two days were “at sea” days, with no land in sight. So what did we do to keep from getting bored? Food, of course! From buffets with all kinds of delicious offerings,
to three enchanting dining rooms that we rotated through, a different themed place every evening. One dinning room was called the Animators Palate, where it was decorated to resemble a Disney cartoon workshop.
Another one was the Royal Court, with beautiful tiled mosaics depicting Disney stories.
Or even other decorations.
Marti and I even celebrated the 10 year anniversary of our fiftieth birthdays while we were there. Marti is four days older than me (yep, she’s my cougar!).
The dinners were rotated through three restaurants, and the fun thing is you are assigned two servers, who rotate with you and really get to know you. Our servers were Dewayne from Jamaica and Annamarija from Croatia. They were fabulous and it was a bunch of tearful hugs when we had to say goodbye to them on our last night.
They went above and beyond and spoiled us rotten. We wanted to take them home with us. Unfortunately, we bought too many T-shirts to have had room for them in our suitcases. The good news is we were able to request them for our cruise next year, so we’ll see them again.
I’d better pause here to collect my thoughts for the next post about how the ship was taken over by pirates, it was a terrifying experience! :cO
