Each family has their own reason to choose a specific cruise. In our case when we looked at our choices for this cruise we considered price and destination mostly. We love the sea days where we do not dock and all the opportunities that these days offer. This cruise offered 2 sea days which was great for us!
Hannah was with us for only a short amount of time before she was asking to go to the Oceaneer’s Club so I dropped her off there. I grabbed my book and the wave phone so that the club could reach me if necessary, and went back up to hang out on the deck with Nana and Papa. You can see it was a big challenge for Papa to flip into vacation mode and relax.
After a morning in the sun we headed back to our staterooms to prepare to go to Palo for a special lunch. Palo is an adults only dining location so Hannah and Ava were happy playing at the Oceaneer’s Club and Lab and they fed them lunch too. Bonus!!
Unfortunately my mom was a little under the weather so she wasn’t able to join us for lunch. Missed you Mom!
Our server was Sasha and he was amazing!! So knowledgeable and an expert at what he did! He started our lunch by offering to take pictures for us. Palo is located on the 10th deck so the view is breathtaking! Our group was: Liz (a friend from home who was on the same cruise with her daughter Ava) myself, Sharon, Larry and Dad.
I had a delicious chicken parmesan on risotto but it was so delicious that it was gone before I remembered to take a picture of it! My dessert choices…plus 2 helpings of strawberry soup not pictured here.
Needless to say we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Palo and will book again on a future cruise.
We decided to take in a showing of ‘McFarland, USA’ that was playing in the Walt Disney Theatre. Hannah was happy to draw and colour for a bit and then dozed off for the final hour of the movie. If you have the opportunity to see this movie, GO! It was AMAZING!!!
After the movie Hannah was rested and raring to go so she and I quickly changed into bathing suits and hit the pool. We were in rougher waters at this point and the water in the pool was sloshing from side to side. That didn’t bother Hannah one little bit as she and her new little friend Miranda enjoyed some swimming time together. In the end, we met Miranda and her family at the pool each day as the girls became fast friends and I got along with her parents too!
but that never bothered us a bit either!
Up next….’Argh! Pirates in the Caribbean!’
