All Ears 2014 Group Cruise Day 7

Deb's Digest Blog

All good things must come to an end and an AllEars Group Cruise is no exception. Our final day on the cruise was the port of Castaway Cay! We arrived to a cloudy sky and rain was predicted.

No matter... most everyone got off the ship and enjoyed the private island. We were quickly welcomed by Olaf who was hanging out in front of the Post Office.

Despite the threat of rain (and rain it did), many folks found their way to Serenity Bay for our lunch meet!

All Ears 2014 Group Cruise Day 5 - Part 1

Deb's Digest Blog

Today was Jamaica Day and while many cruisers took off for a climb at Dunn River Falls, others just wandered into the port and some even stayed onboard. My plans to wander the port changed when I realized it was raining! Another AllEars Cruise tradition is lunch onboard the ship during one of the port days.

Today we gathered in Royal Court

Later in the afternoon we all gathered at the pool to watch Melanie get her hair braided. It seems the night before, one thing lead to another at the dinner table and well, a charity fundraiser came alive. Brenda decided that Melanie should get her hair braided as a way to raise money for my Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. For every $5 donated, Mel would get one braid in her hair. Turns out everyone was up for raising money and having a good time so enough money was raised for 51 braids!!!

Mel was a great sport and sat for over 90 minutes while her hair was braided -- much to the delight of everyone who hung around to watch. A few ladies in our group decided to get braids as well, to be supportive of Melanie and the cause.

At the time of the braiding over $300 had been raised. By the time we gathered the following day the total was up to $500!!!!!

The Disney Fantasy had plenty of options for everyone to spend their sea day. Folks went to the movies, Palo, the Castaway Club gathering and some just relaxed in the sun.

In the afternoon we had our Ice Cream Social. While it started out with everyone enjoying a cool snack, it soon turned into a trading card meet, once again.

After lunch and settling into the cabins, we all gathered for the Sail Away Party. It was great fun, as always, but then the party ended on stage and we hadn't moved yet! Not sure what happened but about 20 minutes later we were underway. Shout out to Kristin and her family for waving good bye to us at Jetty Park!
