Makenna went with 2 different ice creams

Taryn had the melting cake but she gets peanut butter to go with it

Both kids thought there dessert was great.


DW and I had a hard time getting into dessert. Right before they brought it out there was a kid who got sick and as his dad tried to get him out of the dining room he puked all over the floor a table down from us. That smell kind of ruined the meal. Luckily it did not get on us!

After dinner we went back to the room quick and then off to the welcome aboard show.

You can see the shoe organizer in this pic and we also like to hang up the Fun times with magnets as well....eliminates the clutter

We made it to the Theater and we always enjoy sitting up in the balcony part with the couches.

Malcolm is the cruise director and we think he does a fantastic job. He always gets the crowd involved. There was one guy he picked on in the audience who had his hands folded and didn't look like he was enjoying. Malcolm made the comment they don't discriminate if you are a fun hater just stay in your room and order room service haha

Then he brought up two couples for the VIP contest


Video of the ping pong game


Then the singers and dancers came out to give us a little preview of the upcoming shows for the week. The girls really enjoyed watching them

After the show we headed to the Red Frog Pub for a little get together.

We were a little early so we decided to play some shuffleboard


We enjoy hanging out at the Red Frog Pub as kids are allowed and they have games and music. The little meet and greet turned out to be very few people but it was nice visiting with some folks on board.

We headed to the open deck before ending the night.

The girls were definately in vacation mode

We relaxed outside for a little while longer and then off to bed

Thanks again....we did see your son on the cruise but didn't get a photo...we were not in the comedy club nearly as much on this cruise with the kids as we were in July. You are getting close to going now

Really enjoying your review and the pictures. I saw "strawberry soup" on the menu and wondered what in the world was that then just down a little you had a picture, perfect! Looking forward to the rest of your review, looks like your family had a great time - and isn't that what it is all about!

Loving your review! Thank you for posting the kids menu, I hadn't seen one before! Do you know if the kids club was open for drop off on the first night? We are crusing with our kids this coming April and next Dec, and my tentative plan was to get the kids a quick bite at the buffet (they are not big eaters and I don't fight with them about food on vacation), and then drop them at the kids club so hubby and I could go to dinner alone.
