Before we get to debarkation there are a couple areas of the ship I haven’t shown you yet. Well, there are MANY areas of the ship you still haven’t seen but a week just isn’t enough time. We still haven’t toured the kids’ clubs among other things, but there’s always next time!
Up at the very top of the ship is Goofy’s Sports Deck. Want to play basketball? Check! Foosball? Ok! There is the CUTEST mini golf at sea you’ll ever see! And great views of the pools (that poor squeegie guy. All day long, back and forth he goes, his job NEVER ends!) and AquaDuck. Plus there is a little water play area called Aqua Lab. Very cute. Cute clock up on the sports deck.
There’s a cool little bonus pool you can dip your toes in if the other pools are too busy. The adult pool is really neat with its cool water mister and in pool bar
There are 2 theatres on the ship. The Walt Disney Theatre where all the live shows are performed and the Buena Vista Theatre where they show movies.
Some random tips:
In every stateroom there is a safe. I forgot to take a picture of it but to give you an idea how big it is, it held both our wallets, and my Nikon DSLR with attached lens and flash. There was plenty of room to spare. So if you bring an iPad or something along those lines, you have a safe place to store it.
In your room you will also find a mini fridge. Not a beverage cooler like on the Magic and the Wonder, but a full on mini fridge. You don’t need extra ice to cool down your drinks.
If you worry about getting sick while on a cruise this will make you feel better. At every dining room before each meal there is someone there handing out antibacterial hand wipes.
We woke up early on Saturday, got dressed and had our Farewell Breakfast in the Enchanted Garden. It was bittersweet. We could have easily stayed another week but we were missing our pugs and family and friends. After breakfast we collected our carry ons and made our way to the gangway to wait in the customs line. We found our luggage easily, went through customs, and next thing you know we were in the parking lot!
The drive home was mostly uneventful. Except…we stopped at McDonald’s somewhere along the way to go to the restroom. I was waiting for the lady in front of me to finish with the sink. She finally turned and looked at me while popping her dentures back in her mouth. She had been cleaning them out in the sink. I stepped up to the sink and about gagged because the sink was full of dirty denture water and bits of denture food! GAG!!!
I’m so sad this trip blog is over. Because that means our cruise is officially over. SOB! Luckily we’re already planning our next cruise! Stay tuned!
