Voyage 98!

What a week! And it’s not even over yet…

So this week, a lot of people have been sick.  Like everyone.  Like, we had to change our ship’s AGE level to HIGH.  This means that not only are we bleaching like crazy all day long, but we also have to be hand-washing Nazis for both the kids and their parents.  We’ve lost all of our guest privileges (aka no more going to see the shows, no more dining requests in the nice restaurants, and no more coffee bar!!).  You have to wear gloves to eat in the crew mess, and you have to wear a dust mask when sorting your trash (screw that, Becca and I are already pawning off our trash to friends who have better housekeeping routines so that we don’t have to throw it out ourselves).  But the fun doesn’t stop there, oh no.

This week one of our guests has a service dog with him, “Kingston” (I’ve changed the dog’s name for its own protection…).  So Kingston gets to come into the kid’s club space with us.  Under other circumstances, I would be thrilled.  Living on a ship means that you are pretty much devoid of any animal contact outside of the K9 dogs sniffing your bags when you get on board.  So seeing service dogs is always a fun treat.  However, Kingston doesn’t have a very strong work ethic, and has a bit of a problem with authority.  You see, Kingston prefers to jump on counselors, (*allegedly) scratch other children, and jump and scratch on the door that rudely separates him from the cookies that are being prepared backstage.  But it’s not all bad, because Kingston is still able to enjoy lots of freedom, seeing as his child is gladly willing to be pulled around every which way and in any direction that Kingston prefers.  Does Kingston’s child want to color in Pixie Hollow?  Too bad, Kingston wants to drag his child all the way back to the Lab side because he hears a ball bouncing in there.  But that’s what a service dog is supposed to do, right?  So it’s all good.  No worries…whatsoever……

Now I’m just waiting for the Mr. MOB or Blue Parties announcement to wake us all in the middle of the night.  Or maybe Becca and I will just fail cabin inspection again.  Who knows.  All I do know is that this cruise has been quite an adventure and I’m ready for it to be over.

But enough about that – who wants to sail the Disney Dream in May with me????!  Any takers? We’re running the Castaway Cay 5k, so be prepared.
