The final aboard was a bit of a character day once again. With little to get up for we enjoyed a good lay in then headed out to Topsiders for a leisurely buffet breakfast before the character fest began. After a brief morning swim we headed down to the Lobby Atrium for the Character dance party. Think dance music, confetti and a lot of Disney characters and you’ve got some idea of what was going on.
Lunch followed and then Harry headed up to the Oceaneer’s Lab for rehearsal of the club show, Friendship Rocks. This is where all the children on board get the chance to sing and dance along with Mickey and Minnie on the Walt Disney Theatre stage. They wore yellow (Oceaneer’s Club) and blue (Oceaneer’s Lab) t shirts which they got as a keepsake.
Harry once again refused to leave the club so we decided to take a trio back to quiet cove on deck 9 for a little while before getting ready for the evening. Tonight’s show was the multi award winning, Disney Dreams that follows the dreams of a young girl as Peter Pan attempts to help her to fly. Disney certainly left the biggest production until last. Not only was it the biggest sets but they also threw confetti, bubbles, snow and streamers in to the mix.
Our final dinner was in Animator’s Palette with the Till We Meet Again menu and a flag parade from the dining staff. We managed to finish just in time for the final character event, Till We Meet Again where a host of characters came out to say goodbye and allow everyone to get there final photos and autographs for the cruise.
A great cruise and sad to see it’s over. It was great to be on the ship for 12 days, it gave us a real chance to explore the ship properly and take part in everything the ship has to offer. I’m looking forward to the next one already!
