Disney Fantasy Western Caribbean Day 6- Cozumel & Satellite Falls

We woke up early again (no small feat for us night owls) and had breakfast at Royal Court.  It’s the same menu every day so no pictures today.   Today was the day when the cruise started going by too fast. We debated going ashore in Cozumel but ultimately it came down to that CSP still wasn’t feeling up to it.  So we stayed on the ship.  He did say though that next year he’ll get off the ship in Cozumel.

After breakfast we changed into our swimsuits.  Before hitting the pool deck though, I had an appointment at 11 am for a quick polish change at the spa/salon.  My gel manicure I got at home before we left was all sorts of chipped up.  CSP decided he would take that time and run around the ship taking pictures of the shipDSC_5728 and the DSC_5729Cozumel DSC_5731coastDSC_5727 line.DSC_5730 2 Well, my simple polish change turned into a Shellac manicure IMG_3331with a gorgeous view of the sea and before I knew it an hour had gone by. By the way, I finally soaked off my Shellac manicure today only because it had grown out so much and I was ready for a color change.  I only had a couple small chips in it and some tip wear.  Why can’t I get that good of a gel/Shellac manicure in my hometown?  The same thing happened to me on the cruise last year!  But I digress.

For lunch we decided to try the buffet at Cabanas.  CSP loved it but I wasn’t crazy about it.  I’m just not a fan of buffets overall though.  For a buffet it was good.  LOTS of choices.  They did have big cocktail shrimp and I love that.  After lunch it was time for a good nap!

We woke up and put our swimsuits back on and headed up to Satellite Falls, an adult area on the ship. PICT0051  We took our books and chilled out there all afternoon. PICT0044 LOVED it! PICT0042 There was plenty of shade for my fair, white self PICT0037and the Satellite Falls themselves were fabulous.PICT0050  I took the waterproof camera and took some pictures from under the falls.  It’s so relaxing there.  The falling water provides the white noise and the water is just deep enoughPICT0041 where you can lounge in it. PICT0049 The center of the falls has a circular seating area that’s heated! PICT0053 So nice!  And it wasn’t crowded at all since it was a port day.

Before we knew it it was 5:30 and time to go back to the cabin to get ready for dinner at Palo!

Next up…Palo, Pirate Night, and Fireworks!

Disney Fantasy Western Caribbean Day 5- Royal Court & Pop!

Eventually it was time to leave the Rainforest and the spa and go back to the room to get ready for dinner.  I was waiting for CSP in the lobby of the spa.  And waiting, and waiting.  He FINALLY appeared and thrusted his arm at me- “Smell my arm! Body wash!”  What??  He’d taken a shower!  He said he just wanted to look in and see what they looked like.  But “As soon as I saw the three bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash- they had me!”   Funny boy!  He even had me smell his hair.  They really do have some nice products!

On the way back to our room we passed the adult pool.  DSC_5698  Love the pool bar! DSC_5699 This is the Cove Cafe.  Like a floating Starbucks.  We toured through it once.  You can get magazines to read and little pastries. DSC_5700

We went back to the room and spent some time out on the verandah.  I had a glass of wine and CSP enjoyed a beer.  Then it was time for dinner DSC_5705at Royal Court.DSC_5703  CSP started with smoked salmonDSC_5706 and a bleu cheese polenta cake.DSC_5708  I had roma tomatoes and goat cheese.DSC_5707   My soup was the potato and sausage soup.  I had pictured in my head something like the zuppa toscana that’s served at Olive Garden but instead it had lentils in it.  Not a fan of the lentils.  So I gave my soup to CSP.  He had a mussel and saffron soup that he loved.  For our entree we both chose the NY Strip.DSC_5709  It was scrumptious.  It came with a yummy sauce, corn, green beans, and a little potato poof thing.  For dessert CSP chose the trio- lemon cheesecake, tiramisu, and chocolate soufflé. DSC_5711 I had the banana bread pudding with caramel sauce.  DSC_5710OMG.  I would have licked the plate had it been socially acceptable.

Let me just say that for 51 weeks of the year we eat like normal humans.  We try to eat healthfully and we watch our portions.  But on the cruise, for those 7 nights we’re eating at fancy restaurants having dishes we normally wouldn’t have.  So we splurge!

That night was our server Tumelo’s birthday so we made sure to wish him a happy birthday.  We heard there was going to be a great party in the crew area that night!

After dinner we went to The Tube IMG_3325IMG_3323 for Pop! IMG_3327 Pop is a Pop culture game show.  We also stayed for the 80’s music challenge.  We didn’t win, but we had a great time!  I had my High Tide drink while we were in the Tube. IMG_3326

I had to use the restroom so I ducked into the public restroom outside of the Europa district IMG_3330(where all the adult pubs are). It was the fanciest restroom I’d ever been in!  There was no one else around so I grabbed CSP and brought him in to see!  Just check out this tile mosaic! IMG_3328

At some point during the night we saw Woody DSC_5702 and Jessie! DSC_5701  And Minnie too! IMG_3321  Oh and Donald’s back! IMG_3322  We also passed the queen’s throne so CSP took a picture of me sitting in it.  DSC_5712  Then some lady walked by in a pretty risqué outfit!  DSC_5714

When we got back to the room I noticed I’d lost an earring.  Nothing expensive but a silver pair I wear ALL the time! PROD_5010421_LG Waaah!

Tonight’s towel animal! DSC_5715
