Disney Fantasy Trip Report Part 4: Monday at Sea

Monday, January 18, 2016

Our second full day at sea was a lot less busy than the previous day. We didn't have any scheduled things during the day. Did I mention we love sea days?!?! The kids slept in until 7:30 a.m. again! And we took our time getting moving in the morning. We saw that Stitch would be out at 9:45 a.m., so we headed there before breakfast.

It was around 10 a.m. when we made it to Cabanas buffet for breakfast. I think that's the latest we've ever been there, and it was packed. I couldn't find an open table for five people. I asked a crew member for help locating a table, and he was able to get a table set for us.

At 10:45 a.m., we decided to see The Good Dinosaur movie in 3-D at the theater on board. This was my first time seeing a movie on the ship!

After the movie, we dropped the kids off at their respective clubs so that Brian and I could have a lunch date. Joshua and Alyssa ate lunch in the clubs, and Nathan grabbed a bite on the top deck before going to the Edge. Brian and I ate in the outdoor section of Cabanas.

After lunch, we went to the adults-only Cove Cafe for some tea and coffee. Wow, it was so peaceful in there! We couldn't hear a peep coming from the pool outside the doors.

Shortly before 2:00, we picked up the kids from the club (and texted Nathan to meet us) and watched a ventriloquist show in the main theater.

The show was very funny and had us all in stitches!

After the show, the kids requested to go back to our room and watch a movie on-demand. They decided to watch Wreck-It Ralph. We also ordered them an early dinner from room service.

Around 5:15 p.m., we dropped the kids at the clubs. Brian and I had a date at Palo, the adults-only restaurant! We arrived about 30 minutes early so that we could spend some time in the Meridian bar at the back of the ship. We had a lovely sunset view.

Our dinner at Palo was lovely and exquisite, as always. We have had dinner at Palo on every Disney cruise.

Although the Palo dinner menu had changed from the last time we were there, we were glad that the chocolate souffle was still available for dessert. Yum!

After Palo, we picked up the kids and went night swimming. We love swimming in the pools at night when everyone else is at dinner or the main show. The only bummer about swimming that night was that the Mickey pool was drained and closed due to a potty accident. We still had fun in the Donald pool and rode the Aqua Duck. (I don't have any photos from our night at the pools, but I do have some footage in our video). During the rest of the week, Alyssa and I tried to return to the Mickey pool 3 times, and each time it was close for I presume the same reason. We had never run across this on any of our previous cruises.

We didn't go to bed until 10:30 p.m. that night.  It was a great day!
