Day 6 – Day at Sea

This was our first day at sea for the cruise and that meant our first real lie in and didn’t we make the most of it! Getting up at 11am meant we missed breakfast. Feeling a little hungry we headed to Lumiere’s for some lunch. After all the amazing food we had eaten so far it was good to eat something a little simpler – Burger and fries!

After getting lunch we wandered to ship for a while until the matinee performance of the Walt Disney Theatre show Disney Dreams. Once again, the show did not disappoint.

By the time the show had finished we headed up to the Promenade lounge for today’s dose of Disney trivia. We didn’t win! Oh well, there is always tomorrow.

Dinner was still a few hours away so we decided to head back to out stateroom. We caught up with the latest from Sky news as well as discovered some great US comedy series on the abc channel.

Tonight was formal night, the only one of the cruise. Given the title of the “Captain’s Gala” people dressed in their best suits, tuxedo’s and dresses for dinner. Just before we headed out for the festivities Darren, the Ship’s cruise director, came over the in room speaker to share the bad news that we wouldn’t be going to Palma. Apparently, all transport staff were on strike meaning no excursion could run and, as the town centre was 3 miles away from dock there was no where people could really go. We were informed that the boat would head to Barcelona and dock their for the day. Many people had come into Barcelona early to enjoy the city (including us) so we opted to stay aboard and enjoy the ship one last day.

Dinner this evening was at Lumiere’s. Tonight, I enjoyed Oysters, beef and the amazing chocolate lava cake. I also managed to sneak in a Bannana Creme Brûlée. One tip for those going a cruise anytime soon. If you like the look of more than one dish, order both!

At 10.40pm, Disney had announced that they will. Be setting of fireworks from the deck. We headed up to find another deck party in full swing. The fireworks went off as planned and although there was a chocolate buffet in Lumiere’s we decided to call it a night.

Tomorrow, a day moored at Barcelona port to enjoy the ship one last time.
