Building the Lego Wonder
|Lego Wonder Day 1|
So it's not terrible surprising that the incoming passengers like me aren't reunited with their luggage for some time, and that they are left to roam the ship as their cabins are readied. Knowing this, we planned ahead. Lara brought a book, the kids brought swimsuits, and I... carried onboard a big bag full of Lego.
Helpful Porter: "Don't you want to check those big bags sir?"
Me: "No, I'm fine, really, thanks, I'll carry them."I immediately went up to the top deck and started building.
It Takes a Little Time

Also the hull needed structural support near the stern (see the holes for the line handling. On, I think, deck 4). Also there needed to be something to hold the bow together since I built it upside down.
(By the way, people asked about the bulbous bow. In my model its below water :)

Actually, those were just because, when I was buying pieces, there were bulk horses on the wall and I couldn't resist :)

GawkersAs the days passed, the guests and staff became interested in what we were doing. Lara & I got lots of praise for the ship.
Since it was a Disney ship, humans weren't the only ones that stopped to take a look. Most of the gang did too, here's Daisy.
