I had to hold on to that wonderful feeling cause we found out our stingray excursion was cancelled! We were both looking forward to that so much, but I guess the water was too choppy or something. It was overcast a bit and a bit rainy when we first woke up.
We walked to the tram that would take us to Serenity Bay - the adults only beach on Castaway Cay. Curt is NOT what you would call a beach person, however, I did get him to sit at the edge of the beach with his feet in the water. I went in about waist deep, but that was all. It was kind of rough out there. I could not believe the number of shells I kept digging up. Sheriff Curt made sure I kept them on the beach since it was announced they would appreciate us not taking the shells. Oh how my scrapbooking page will suffer without that shell ... ha! Wow, this island was so gorgeous and we had a fantastic time at the beach.
We stayed on the beach for a few hours then went to eat at the buffet. I had my first hamburger of the trip! Now, I've got to tell you the funniest story here. Curt is not a seafood lover ... besides Long John Silver's fish, he will not eat any seafood. They had the hamburger patties, chicken and mahi mahi in buffet covered dishes to keep them warm. There are place cards in front of each dish. Well, Curt and I sit down at a picnic table and I'm putting my hamburger together while he digs into his meal. He says "Cheryl, you have got to try this chicken! It is just so tender and tastes great." I look up and over at his plate and see the "chicken" he is eating. It doesn't look like chicken to me and after tasting it I was very happy to inform him that he was eating the delicious mahi mahi!! Bahahaha! He was such a good sport about it and even tasted it again saying "Now I can taste the fishy aftertaste". Ha .. he just cracks me up!!!
We decided to do some shopping and walk back to the ship to check out the AquaDuck.
Curt and I found out we got an honorable mention for our door decoration and with the raffle tickets we collected we also won a prize.
This was in Ooh La La which is one of the nightclubs in the Europa district. In the evenings the Europa district is adults only and consists of four nightclubs. We only went to The Tube (London theme). There is also the Irish bar named O'Gills Pub, Ooh La La (French boudoir theme), and Skyline (cosmopolitan lounge) has several European skylines. On our next cruise I plan on spending some time in Skyline!
Tomorrow we dock at Port Canaveral and the cruise is over! We booked a few more days at Disney World so we wouldn't have to go cold turkey leaving immediately ... plus I'm so excited to see my sweet scrapping buddy, Karen, and her hubby, Guy. These two are the most adorable and sweet cast members Disney has. They were so sweet to offer to pick us up from the port and we are looking forward to spending the day with them. Thanks for dropping by ...
