84/365: Rockets' Red Glare

84/365: Rockets' Red Glare

After leaving Castaway Cay, the evening brought us a special treat--not only was it the night of the always-fun pirate party, complete with an amazing fireworks show launched from aboard the Disney Dream, but we had the special privilege of passing the Disney Fantasy on its shakedown cruise. Both ships engaged in what's known as a "horn battle", where we each took turns blasting tunes at one another on the ships' horns. Then after the Dream's fireworks show, the Fantasy launched into her own, the first (and I believe still the only) time such a display has occurred.

The day was also notable for me because Liz and I went parasailing for the first time at Castaway Cay. After being scared out of my mind leading up to our turn, I was surprised to discover how calming and serene the actual experience was, suspended gracefully in the sky with no sense of the distance between our feet and the water far, far below. I'd definitely like to try it again...
