Published: January 1, 2012 at 10:58 PMThis has to be one of the best and fascinating stories I have read on TPI Robert. I am not being dramatic either. I really really enjoyed it! Really well done! The restaurant looks fantastic and I really felt you conveyed what makes Tokyo Disney stand out even more to the pretty good service we get here in the US parks. DL and WDW gives great service, this is almost perfection.

Being cruise fans, just walking around the ship and discover how detailed a ship of that era had been recreated was just fascinating. And then, this isn't even a ship but a building made to look like a ship.
Then, we had a snack and a drink in the Teddy Roosevelt lounge onboard and later that day dinner in the dining room.
Looking forward to the report about Magellans!

How ideal it is to live in a country where one doesn't have to worry about tips and taxes are included in the price.
