Cruise Day 4, Part 1

 Rhonda really wanted to do the free roomservice so we decided on day four to sleep in a bit and order room service breakfast. The only downside is it is only muffins, bagels and fruit no hot dishes. But it was enough to get us going and we had a mid-morning snack later.

 Izzie and Maddie, with breakfast in bed!

 After breakfast we hit the pool. Love their Minnie Swimsuits! (Maddie, Izzie)

 The Mickey Pool was for kids and was pretty shallow, they loved it! His ears were two smaller pools that they called their "hot tubs." Notice the empty pool? This was our first day to dock after two days at sea. We had the entire pool to ourselves. It was awesome.

 This slide looked pretty cool, but the girls weren't brave enough to try it out.

 Their swimsuits came with these cute cover ups. Izzie, Rhonda and Maddie.

 Izzie, Momma and Maddie. They were like, enough with the pictures, lets get in the pool!

 Maddie and Izzie swimming in their "hot tub."

 It had a zero entry splash area all around the deeper part. Izzie was being a mermaid.


 Guess where this was taken? Yep... Deck 4. We docked at Costa Maya.

 There was actually no dock at this stop, everyone had to use tender boats to get to shore. The cruise director called these "small" boats and then he said, "well they do hold about 100 people." They look tiny next to our big ship!

 This is a photo hanging in the ship of the Caribbean Beach Resort, part of Disney World Florida. Rhonda worked there 10 years ago. She loved seeing this hanging on the ship.

 I really liked the hall of art they had on the ship.

 Maddie and Izzie spying land.

 Lunch at Lumiere's.

 We did a mask craft. I was REALLY dissapointed in the crafts. I mean they were awesome for church camp or low budget Girl Scout camp... they were NOT what I'd expect on a Disney Cruise. If they had taken 1/10th of the food budget, no one would have noticed and we could have had some awesome crafts. These were a flimsy cardboard, and later we made crowns out of construction paper. We got markers and a few sequence to glue on. We got creative with punched out eye pieces to make "feathers." Really, Disney... could you not buy a little bit better of craft materials? On the other hand, the 4 year olds had fun and that is what matters. (My mask, Maddie's, Izzie's and Rhonda's.)

Time for an ice cream snack.

Up next... Pirate Photos!
