Today is Nassau Day!!! We woke up early and went to breakfast in 1923. 1923 is a gorgeous restaurant on the Wish that is decorated like old Hollywood. It’s divided into 2 sections- the Roy Disney side and the Walt Disney side. There are over 900 (!!!) pieces of memorabilia in the restaurant! So much to look at!!! Pictures to come when we have dinner there. On the way back to our room from breakfast we spotted a dachshund in a stroller! I WISH I’d had my phone in my hand so I could have snagged a picture!!! Sigh.
In our room we showered, got ready for the day, read our books, and relaxed for a while. It was POURING rain from Hurricane Ian so we didn’t get off the ship. Plus there were 4 ships in port today so it was v crowded!
Lunch today was in Marceline’s Market. It’s a buffet divided into many different sections. It’s more upscale than Cabanas on the other DCL ships (In our opinion). The food was great! SO much seafood and CSP ate ALL of it!!! We both had peel & eat shrimp, he had some crab claws too, and I had chicken tikka masala. They have a great variety!
After lunch we decided to go exploring a bit on the ship. We went up to the Quiet Cove Cafe, bar, and pool.
This is the adults only area of the ship. We spent an hour at the Cafe where CSP got a Vietnamese coffee and I had a Thai Tea.
We were excited to learn that the Quiet Cove Cafe still has a punch card where after you buy 5 drinks you get one free. When we left the QCC the rain was coming down even harder! We took a right out of the cafe but ran into a dead end and had to go all the way around the end of the ship to get back to the elevators. By the time we reached the elevators we were both SOAKED! So we went back to the room to dry out and let me redo my hair! While in our room we watched some Hurricane Ian coverage and read our books.
Took some pictures as we left Nassau.
Then it was time to get ready for the show! Tonight we are seeing the Little Mermaid in the Walt Disney Theatre. No photography during the show, but it was FANTASTIC! The talent on the Disney ships is just downright amazing! You forget you’re on a ship in the middle of the ocean!!!
After the show CSP bought me the Jack Skellington popcorn bucket! It lights up! SO cute! It changes colors!
After the show we popped back to our room to freshen up for dinner. It’s also “Halloween” tonight as this is a Halloween on the High Seas cruise! CSP & I dressed up as tourists. Ha!
On the way to dinner we stopped back into Mickey’s Mainsail and bought a magnet for our souvenir.
Dinner tonight was in Arendelle, named for the village in the movie Frozen.
After we ordered, the show began! A female singer, a guitarist, and a violinist came out and sang songs from the Frozen movies. They were incredible!
We had great seats. Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff came out to see everyone too! The idea is that we’re at the engagement party for Anna & Kristoff.
CSP got himself a trio of Nordic drinks. A Nordic wheat beer, Meade, and Aquavit. He loved it all!
The food in Arendelle is really great too. I had the scallop appetizer which consisted of a pastry baked over a broth with 2 scallops in it with some vegetables. It was really good.
There was a nice family seated to my right in the above picture. There was a mom, dad, and daughter of about 9 years of age. The daughter wrapped her clear retainer in a white paper napkin and put it on the table. Well, you guessed it, the server cleared the table and threw it out. She was SO upset. She was sobbing. Her parents were trying to make her feel better about it but she couldn’t be consoled. The server came over and asked what was wrong. Mom explained and told the server that finding the retainer would be like looking for a needle in a haystack. Well their server went through the garbage and FOUND IT!!! He then brought her a cup to keep it in. She was so relieved she sobbed even harder! Poor girl! My heart broke for her, but WOW! What service and what luck that they found it!!!
The man on the left in the picture below is Luken, our host for the evening. That’s Kristoff with the horn. They led the entire dining room in a sing along of Let it Go from the original Frozen. It was awesome! Just think- 700 ish people singing at the top of our lungs! People were belting out the words. It’s my favorite moment from the cruise!!!
We had the late seating for dinner at 8:15 pm. At about 9 pm the captain came over the PA system to update us on Hurricane Ian. He’d already told us yesterday that it was likely that we wouldn’t be able to dock back at Port Canaveral until later in the day Friday instead of 6 am as scheduled. When he started speaking it fell silent in the dining room. You could have heard a pin drop. Captain Andy (who’s Irish btw- I LOVE his accent so much) said that because of Ian our cruise would be extended through Saturday or Sunday!!! When he said “Saturday” the entire room erupted in cheers and applause!!! 700 people clapping and whooping!!! Luckily he repeated his message so we could hear the whole thing!
After dinner photos on the way out of Arendelle!
After dinner we went to the Luna lounge for my favorite cruise game show- Match Your Mate! Think the Newlywed game but there’s a newlywed couple, a long time couple of about 20 years, and a couple who’s been married over 50 years.
Luna was PACKED!!! I was able to score a seat in the balcony and CSP had to sit behind me. It’s SUCH a funny show!!!
By the time Match Your Mate was over it was almost midnight so we went back to our room for bed!!!
Ed made a pumpkin with our blanket and a washcloth!!! So cute!!!
Tomorrow…. Castaway Cay!!!
