We left Palo and went straight out on deck to walk it off a bit and get some fresh sea air in our lungs. It’s pretty windy up there on Deck 10, but the sun was shining and it was warm too, so it was just lovely.

Out in the distance, we could see the turbines of an off-shore wind farm. It was tricky to get a decent photo as they were far in the distance and it was cloudier over there too. If you scroll back up you can just see them in the photo I took from inside Palo.

I’m just going to do a bit of a photo dump here and caption anything notable!

We popped back to our room to change into something a bit more casual and then headed down to Fathoms on Deck 3, Forward, where a Mickey and Minnie crafting session was going on. You can see all of the ship’s activities in the Navigator App. You can also ‘heart’ the activities and add to your favorites and even set reminders.

Even with a reminder, we joined it a bit late, so only had about 15 minutes of the 30-minute session remaining, but we both just about did it!

The craft was either a 3D Cutie Mickey or 3D Cutie Minnie. Everything was laid out at tables (socially distanced) – there were printed sheets with either Mickey or Minnie, as well as scissors and glue dots.





I made Minnie and Steve was Mickey, and being up against the clock for us gave it a silly competitive edge for the pair of us (I won!).

It was a fun little activity for all ages, so don’t be afraid, if you are an adult-only party to go and join in if you want to!

Then we went up to Deck 4, Middle, to the D-Lounge (a family-friendly lounge) where Captain Mickey and Sailor Donald Duck were doing an “Appear and Wave”.

It was at this point that I started to feel a bit queasy. I think it was because it was quite stuffy in the lounge area, they had lined up the seats to form a snaking line to meet the characters, so everything felt very claustrophobic, and there were also a LOT of screaming kids.

I managed to hold on as we had waited about 20-minutes in the line, and getting a photo with these guys was something we just had to do!

There was a ship photographer for this character interaction, which we did end up buying. I think I have some photos from the photo studio, so I shall go over it when I share that.

But as soon as the photo was taken, we were off so we could head back to our stateroom so I could take some meds and have a lie down for a bit.

I’ve included some more random photos from around the ship that we must have taken during our day – including seeing Cinderella in the Atrium! You’ll also notice that I have a thing for the different carpets around the ship!
