Day 5 Part 1: Castaway Cay Again!

Our last day on the Disney Dream started with Buffet breakfast in the Enchanted Garden, followed by a leisurely day on Castaway Key. The weather was perfect, and it was a great way to spend our last day.

Day 4 Part 1: Palo Brunch

I started the morning by exploring the ship. I took a photo of myself to prove I was on the cruise. Everyone said that was sad.

We then gathered up the adults, and went to brunch at Palo’s – probably the best meal we had all week. Have also included some pics of the ship – showing it was crowded on our “at sea” day.

Day 4 Part 2: Minnie, Goofy, and the AquaDuck

The adults had brunch at Palo today (pics to come) while the kids went to their clubs. Today was “at sea” day so the pools were crowded. We did some shopping, met some characters and the girls rode the AquaDuck several times after 5pm, when the crowds disappeared. And, the big girls had a relaxing message in Senses Spa (no pics allowed).

Day 3 – Part 1: Nassau

We pulled into Nassau this morning and docked with a bunch of other large cruise ships. After breakfast, the kids got off to head to Atlantis for their Aquaventure – a day on the Lazy River and water slides. Reportedly, they had a great time.

Lou and I relaxed, wandered around the ship a bit, had lunch in Cabanas, relaxed some more, and hooked up with the young’uns around 5pm.

Day 2 Part 2: Dining at Remy

We had reservations at Remy – this is one of two restaurants on board that are considered “fine dining.” Unfortunately, this restaurant was adults only; Mark graciously said he would watch the girls (but we heard they ditched him and went to the kids’ clubs). Olivia would have enjoyed the menu, as she is more adventuresome than most of us.

Dining at Remy is about the experience – it serves French Cuisine and its name and theme are taken from the Disney Film “Ratatouille” (where Remy is a Rat who is also a chef!).

Lou and I were joined by Catherine and Beth, and we all had a drink in the lounge, enjoying the romantic sunset. We than began our 3 hour dining experience. We were placed in a small room in the back, where we had a view of Remy’s Kitchen. I didn’t take many photos at first, but then the other folks in our area finished, so I was free to experiment and annoy my dinner companions.

I’ll have to add captions to the photos later, but here is a look at just some of our selections. Dinner was very good. I will say, some of the food did not live up to my expectations, but the service, cheese selections, dessert, and dining companions were fabulous.
