7: Our Promenade Family Cabin This year we splurged on a family promenade cabin. It was huge!!!! For people like us who are used to staying in inside cabins, this was quite a treat. It was 300 sq ft and had two bay windows looking into the promenade. There was a separate bedroom with a bunkbed and closet for the kids as well as a huge walk in closet for us. We even had a sitting area, well worth the extra cost!
8: EMBARKATION DAY | Spent the afternoon in the H2O Zone
9: Sailaway Party from Miami with Dreamworks characters
10: Our sea days were busy trying all the activities on the ship: climbing the rock wall, playing in the pools, mastering mini golf, ping pong and the flowrider and when time permitted, just relaxing! | Sea Days
13: We spent the day playing at the beach at Emerald Beach Resort which is where Bruce and I were married. We took a picture under the "much better looking" arch on the beach for old time sake. | 2011 | 1999
14: Breakfast with Madagascar
15: Dreamworks Move IT Parade
16: We did the SeaWorld Explorer semi-submarine excursion. After a short boat ride we went down to the hull to watch the sealife. Kids enjoyed it. | St-Maarten
17: San Juan | We walked off the ship and visited the fort. It was a really hot day, so we didn't last very long.
18: We had lots of fun in the H2O Zone on most sea days!
19: Which one of these doesn't belong?
20: Botticelli Dining Room We took a lot of pictures in the dining room, some were really nice (as shown on this page) while others were just weird (see next page!).
21: Don't even ask what Bruce is doing! And that's where the sillyness begins...
22: Adult Favorites: Garlic Tiger Shrimp Crab Cakes Lobster Ceasar Salad Brownie | Kids favorites: Caesar Salad Mashed potatoes Fresh Fruit Brownie, Ice Cream & Sherbet | PRESSURE IN THE PANTS This quote came from Bruce most evenings after having 2 appetizers, 2 entrees and 2 desserts !!!
23: DRINKS | We enjoyed a few cocktails while on the ship. Mudslides on deck were the most popular choice but ... | an occasional beer or caeser, but Lynn never wavered from her ... | there were also after dinner shots and ... | favorite Smirnoff Ice!
24: Family Portraits
26: Pirate Parade | The kids sang a song and participated in the pirate parade through the promenade | arrrr..
27: Towel Animals The kids loved the towel animals that were left in our cabin every night after dinner. It was always a race back to see what was there and they had to have a picture taken with each one.
29: Labadee We had a beautiful day in Labadee. We spent most of it on the beach and at the waterpark.
30: Matching Outfits I've been known to obsess a little about making sure everyone's outfits coordinate when I'm packing, but look at how great the pictures turn out when we are all color coordinated!!!
31: The Kids Club | Sports Night, Gaga Ball, Crafts, Water Games | The kids really enjoyed their time in the kids club while onboard. They loved Strawberry and Gorgeous (pictured here). | Disco Night, Pirate Parade, Movie Night
32: What were we thinking? We thought it would be a good idea to walk across the bridge from the pier to our hotel on debarkation day, we had a lot of time to spare and it didn't seem all that far... | MIAMI
33: ... well after dragging our suitcases over the bridge in the heat, we realized that perhaps we had underestimated the distance. Once at the hotel we headed to the market across the street, had some dinner and went to bed!
35: Here are the leftover pictures I couldn't fit in anywhere else!!!
