Thursday, February 2, 2012. Last Sea Day.
I can’t remember exactly when during the trip, but we watched a ton of movies. Mostly just before bed. Included in these are Apollo 18, Puss in Boots, Cowboys & Aliens, and the end of Dolphin Tale.
Today was our last sea day. I love sea days. It’s so odd to me that we can be all the way out there in the ocean and see literally NOTHING. No land, no ships, no nothing. Except if you look closely you can see another cruise ship on the horizon. Didn’t happen often so when we’d see one we’d try and capture it. And by the way, I get the best sleep of my life on a cruise ship. It’s the gentle rocking I think. Today we slept late, skipped breakfast and went to Lumiere’s for lunch. CSP had sushi. I think sushi is so beautiful. I wish I wanted to eat it! Ha! He also had a salmon cake and salmon over risotto. The man has been putting down some fish!
I had fruit, then a pear/nut salad, and a burger. CSP ate my fries since they were the big fat ones. I like skinny fries. I asked for ketchup and this is what the server gave me. So cute! After lunch we went back to the cabin and read books on the balcony. Then I delivered my Fish Extender gifts. That took a good while of touring all over the ship. After a short nap it was time to get ready for dinner and the show. I finished my bottle of wine tonight. SO good. Thank you Christina! Tonight’s show was Dreams. We’ve seen this one before. It’s really good. All about believing in your dreams. After the show we stopped into Diversions so CSP could have a beer. Diversions is the sports/games bar. It’s family friendly until 9pm. They also have a little buffet with nachos and wings on it. CSP liked the wings. Tonight was semi formal night. Minnie was all dressed up again. It’s so interesting to me what people wear on cruises these days. When I was 7 I went on my first cruise. Back then people REALLY dressed for dinner. And formal and semi-formal nights meant tuxedos and suits and fancy dresses. Some people on this cruise still fancied up but there were some who wore beach wear into the dining room for dinner! Disney asks that no flip flops or shorts or beachwear be worn into the nice dining rooms. I think it makes it more special when you put a little effort into it.
Anyway, tonight’s dinner was at Lumiere’s. CSP started with oysters rockefeller while I had some grilled shrimp. We both enjoyed the wild mushroom soup. Tonight was lobster night! We both got the lobster tail with green beans and rice. CSP also got the sesame seared tuna. He actually liked the tuna better than the lobster! It is really pretty!
For dessert CSP had the tropical sundae and I had the trio- coconut macaroon, amaretto cheesecake, and banana creme brulee. So yum!
After dinner we went to Rockin Bar B to see the adult show of Buckets N Boards. Not sure what was adult about it except there were no kids there. It’s not like they tell dirty jokes or drum more sexily. ha! This show was really funny and we had a great time.
Tonight was the late night dessert buffet. We were really close to the front of the line so I was able to get some pictures before it was picked over. So gorgeous!
Once we were finished ogling the desserts we went straight to bed. We were so excited for tomorrow! Castaway Cay day!
