Later that morning, a few of us went to their cooking series, “Anyone Can Cook” and learned how to make Lobster Ravioli!
We were each served a sample paired with a lovely Chardonnay.
From there I headed to a reception held for Gold and Platinum Castaway Club members in Crown and Fin. Your Castaway Club Status is upgraded to Gold after your 5th completed cruise and Platinum after your 10th completed cruise with Disney Cruise Line. During the 30 minute reception, we were served light appetizers, drinks, and Mickey Rice Krispie Treats. The captain was also in Attendance as well as Captain Mickey Mouse!
Now, it was time to relax on deck, with a pretty incredible view!
Decided to order the drink of the day, a Sunken Treasure…
Mike joined me and my view changed a bit…
So I changed up my drink choice to the Sail Away Drink (aka Miami Vice), which is half Strawberry Daiquiri and half Pina Colada:
Even Donald Duck strolled by to say hello!
It was an incredibly relaxing afternoon, which set up Pirate Night quite nicely. We were able to switch our dinner from late to main dining, which worked out better for everyone on our table, thankfully. Dinner tonight is in Triton’s …
My dinner started with a Diet Coke, a Pirates Nest (Sparkling Sweet Wine, Malibu Rum, and Apple Pucker), and “Boucanier” Smoked Saucisson, Baked Brie, Brioche, and Honey with sliced figs and caramelized orange:
Mike & I had King George’s Roasted Privateer Strip Lion: For dessert, I had a Caramel Macadamia Nut Cheesecake Tart:
Mike had the ice cream sundae: There also was a very pretty Gluten Free dessert option tonight: After dinner, we took some time to check out the atrium’s Ginger Bread House- which is stunning in person!
We decided to skip Pirate Night festivities on the pool deck, another tradition with our kids that just didn’t feel right without them. So, from the atrium we strolled to the Cadillac Lounge where there was a pianist playing requests…
Before we knew it, we were ready for bed- it was going to be another early morning for me tomorrow!
