Midweek, I believe it was Wednesday night, was Pirate Night! That was the funnest night by far! My parents had prepared us and gotten us excited about this night. They made sure we all had something to wear and that we looked like a legitimate pirate family! Some of us were even gifted items of clothing to be sure we upheld the pirate-family name. When we showed up for dinner, even the servers were dressed as pirates. They had my favorite menu of the cruise this night, too! I believe it was a New York Steak...but whatever it was, I remember thinking: This is the best night ever! The night show that night was Monsters University 3D, which was awesome, but after that everyone was invited to the main outdoor section of the ship for a pirate party. There was a classic Disney style performance, including music, dancing, fighting, and fake gun fights. Captain Jack Sparrow even came down from a wire. After his grand entrance, we were treated with an awesome firework show, with fireworks being shot right from the ship, over our heads, and over the vast ocean! Such a special sight! And of course, the fireworks were timed perfectly with the music. Classic Disney style! Immediately following, the music picked up and we had a dance party right then and there. After a few songs, they started serving giant turkey legs. Mind you, this was 11 o’clock at night! So awesome! There were other buffet items offered as well, but the turkey legs were the hot items. For those who wanted to continue the pirate party even later could stay out on deck, lay out on the lounge chairs, and watch Pirates of the Caribbean on the huge outdoor screen.

Thursday night was semi-formal night. This was another fun night to dress up, but more Sunday-dress style. A little more comfortable, but still a fun way to feel classy and special.

Lobster tail night
As you have already concluded, after this excessively comprehensive breakdown of the cruise, we had a fabulous time! The final night of the cruise, after the final night show, after watching Bryan’s zombie movie, after hitting up The Tube, after eating snacks at the late-night buffet, we didn’t want it to end so we continued to wander around the ship, taking it all in for the last time. We couldn’t believe it had actually come to an end. What a wonderful, family opportunity we had just had! One we will never forget, and always hold dear!
Don't make us leave!!!
