We woke Monday to another beautiful sunny day! It was our second day at sea as we sailed towards St. Maarten. One of the reasons I originally selected this cruise besides that it was the week of Hannah’s birthday was that it included 3 days at sea. If we were going on a cruise I wanted to give us lots of opportunity to enjoy all that the ship had to offer and I was so thankful for that choice!
Hannah was up early and dressed in her sailing dress. This is our stateroom door decorated with magnets and a ‘fish extender’ I’d brought from home. I’ll share more about the fish extender later. The magnets are characters that represent each of us and are just fun decorations. I learned a lot about our cruise on DISboards and one of the things was how people bring magnets to decorate their stateroom door. It was a fun surprise and almost daily I would change them or add new ones.
Hannah was up early this morning because there was a new character on board for her to meet and she couldn’t wait! Anna!!!
After breakfast we set off on a morning of character greetings. Hannah and Daisy in their matching dresses.
The wait for the princesses was longer so Aladdin stepped in to greet the children as they waited.
By now it was mid-morning and Hannah was ready to go to clubs for a while. She would eat lunch there this day which she though was pretty neat! Nana and I had some time before we needed to get ready for lunch so we went to our happy place – the upper decks to soak up some sun! Ahh!!
A glance to our right showed the family deck, Aquaduck and blue skies as far as the eye could see!
I love the look of the Disney ships from top to bottom. Fun, bright and classy all at the same time!
On this day I had booked a special lunch for Sharon and I at a beautiful adults only restaurant called Palo. It’s located on the 11th deck Aft and the view will take your breath away!!
Happy Retirement Nana! We’re so glad you’re here with us!!
The view as we left. Check out the blue, blue, blue, blue water! Never had I seen anything like this in my life! BEAUTIFUL!!!
