Disney Fantasy Halloween Cruise Trip Report

Day 3

October 29th 2012
Day at sea
(full photo gallery at the bottom of this page)
We began our second day at sea with our only restaurant breakfast of the trip.  We ate in the Royal Court and enjoyed it very much.  Our 9 year old ordered the sausage omelet and there was actually slices of spicy sausage in it so he didn't like it.  Our table server asked how we liked our food and noticed that our son wasn't eating his.  When our table server found out that our son didn't like his omelet, he went back to the kitchen and had them freshly prepare a plain cheese omelet (that was not on the menu) for our son.  That just goes to show you the amazing service you get on a Disney Cruise and that they even pay attention to what the younger population things on their ship.
After breakfast we took our time finishing up on the fish extender gift deliveries and then decided to take a relaxing tour of the ship.  It was so much fun to explore the different areas of the ship.  We decided to give the Midship Detective Agency a try and had a great time participating in the Muppets mystery.
The Midship Detective Agency was a great way to explore the ship.  We had to talk all around the ship looking for clues and took some extra time enjoying the Promenade Deck on Deck 4.  This is the only deck where you can walk entirely around the ship.  It is used as a walking/jogging track with 2.5 laps to the mile.  Promenade decks used to be where people put on their best dresses and suites to promenade or walk in front of others relaxing on the deck.  It was a place where the rich sized up their competition and showed off their best style and jewels.
Our boys relax in the chairs on the promenade deck in the beautiful weather.  They imagine what it must have been like with many people parading around the deck dressed in their finest.
After some touring and lunch at Cabanas, the kids returned to the Oceaneer Lab for some more Super Sloppy Science and we went on the Art Of The Theme Tour at 3:30 in the afternoon.  The tour was an interesting look at the theming and decor or the ship including a close look into places that you normally don't get to see.  It was fun and informative.  I will share pictures with you below.
Dinner tonight was in the Enchanted Garden Restaurant.  After dinner our stateroom host, Thongchai Jitnak, offered to put on a towel folding demonstration for us.  We really had fun seeing how he folded all of those towel animals.  our youngest begged for a towel monkey until the host finally agreed to make one for him. (You can see video of the towel animal demonstration below)
We decided to attend the show in the Walt Disney Theater featuring the comedy and hypnosis of Dale K.  he was entertaining while keeping it clean enough for the kids to watch.  We sat in the balcony because we wanted to be sure that we were not chosen as volunteers.
After the show we needed to get some sleep for our long day in Costa Maya the next day.

This is the sausage omelet that our son didn’t like. He did like the cheese omelet that they made up special for him.

Waffles filled with sweet cream cheese and topped with maple syrup. Yum!

Tip: If you are playing the Muppets Midship Detective Agency, and do not want to make too many trips to this door, take some good close up photographs to refer back to for clues. Personally I can use the extra exercise.

The Art Of The Theme Tour first stop was Remy’s Restaurant. This is an adult only restaurant with reservations required. It is often difficult to get into and requires an additional fee.
