In Search of Pirates

Hi ho, hi ho! Sebastian here to share with you what I have been doing the last few days. I went in search of pirates and you are going to be impressed with how diligent I was in my effort. Let me begin by saying I’m sure Ginger has her own take on things and surely she’ll get her turn but I am here to tell you the important things.

I know that pirates are usually on a ship so I figured I needed to find a big ship. And I did. It was a beee-eau-ti-ful one. It’s called the Disney Dream. Can you love a ship? If you can, I think I fell in love! How appropriate that I am telling you about this on Valentine’s Day. What timing!

Let me take you on a quick tour of my ship. I know it doesn’t look like your ordinary pirate ship but I had it on good authority that there were pirates on board and I intended to find them! This was my mode of transportation.

This is a view of the upper decks.  No pirates here!

Below is another mode of transportation on the Dream.  It’s called the AquaDuck.  Being the savvy bear that I am, I didn’t test this out personally.  I sent my minions to make sure it was free of pirates.

The deck at night.  Ah-h-h.

Now for a few glimpses of the inside.  Here’s the overhead light in the Atrium.  Pirates really know how to travel don’t they?

Here I am checking the life preserver to make sure it is in working order.  I deemed it sea worthy.

Not sure what this is for.  Ginger says it’s for swimming in but why would you swim in this when you have a whole ocean just over the rail?

I thought this was an indicator of where the pirates were on board but I was told it was some sort of dial that tells you where the current lift is located.  I watched this area for ages and ages for pirates.  I wish someone had told me that sooner!

My onboard accommodations.  Sh-h-h-h.  Don’t tell anyone!

Here’s a view of the inside.  I thought I was going to have this all to myself but alas, I had to share with my minions.

As long as I am showing you around, I thought you might like to see this place.  It is called the Enchanted Garden restaurant. 

And this one is called The Royal Palace.  Look really close and  you might see some glass slippers surrounding the light.

I saw this every day while on  board.  It is a tiled mural.  Pirates know how to travel!

I was told this was a water play area for children, but I think that is a euphemism for little pirate sea training.

With all these things to see I almost forgot my mission, but no worries

after I survived my first day at sea, I knew I was ready to continue with my search.  I’ll be back with Part 2.


love & hugs -



  1. Be careful little buddy what you wish for - there are good pirates but also BAD ones. You don't want to be bearnapped, and taken to a far away island.

    Hugs and Happy Heart Day,
    Prudence ♥

    1. Hi Prudence,

      Thank you for your concern! I think there was rather a close call. I'll tell you all about it!


  2. Hi Sebastian,
    You said that you didn't get to go on toventures. Well you are a fibber, 'cos chasing pirates is a great BIG toventure. I think you need some help 'cos you haven't caught up with them yet. So here's my advice.
    First, you should look out for certain clues. If you see someone in a stripey jumper (black and white hoops) wearing a bicorn hat with a skull and cross bones on it, and especially if they have a cutlass in their teeth then that probly a piratical personage.
    Some pirates have wooden legs, but the real ones have wooden legs and carry a parrot on their shoulder. Not a dead parrot, 'cos they would be out of Monty Python. No, a live parrot, what talks. The real giveaway with the parrot is if it says, "Pieces of eight, pieces of eight!" Now, I don't now what pieces of eight are, but I am reliably told that pirates bury them.
    Then of course there's rum. Pirates get together, drink rum and sing things like:
    "Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum,
    Sixteen men on a dead man's chest"
    So remember, stripy jerseys, hats, wooden legs, parrots, and loud singing.
    Happy hunting, but if you do meet some remember:



    1. Hi Jock,

      Your suggestions are helpful ones to be sure. I am sure with these tips in mind I will be able to sort out the pirates from the passengers - at least I hope so! You are a very good friend!


  3. Wait, what? The minions didn't get you your own room? You just cannot get the staff these days...


    Jack, Boo & The Clan

    1. Hi Jack, Boo & The Clan,

      Don't I know it! However, it was quite handy having them right at my beck and call. I could send them all over the ship looking for pirates (or on a wild goose chase) and have the place all to myself!


  4. I didn't see a tiny bed in that beautiful room for you Sebastian. May be it was the other side of the bed. I hope you are not dreaming of Pirates.
    hugs Wilbur
