Sunday was our second day at sea. Days at sea
are dangerous. Wake up late,
get pizza for brunch, donate $25.00 at the casino, and find friends at the pool.
Sit a while. Eat lunch with friends. Show up with Divas for the flash mob dance.
Go to the karaoke area to sit in the air conditioning and recuperate from the
dance. After karaoke finished, I returned to the room to rest and dress for
dinner, wearing my boa and tiara.
All the ladies dressed up with their "bling" showing.
I thought the food on the cruise this time was better than last year. It's
not all in the presentation, but that seems to be an art, as well, in everything
from the drinks, appetizers, entrées, to desserts.
If you haven't heard about the Chocolate Melting Cake and are a chocoholic,
it's a must.
After dinner, II again returned to my room, this time to repack my suitcase
and set it out in the hallway by 11:00 PM. There are tales of people forgetting
to keep their clothes for disembarkation and having to wear their PJs off the
ship. Don't know what those who sleep in the nude do.
For anyone who hasn't cruised before, some cruise line room stewards leave
towel animals after they've straightened up the room. No matter how many times
I've cruised, I always look forward to seeing the variety of animals they come
I especially like the elephant.
