At Sea - Day 1
I woke up from a good, long (for a change) sleep. On my own with no roommate, I
went to breakfast in the Windjammer in hopes of meeting someone else in the group.
While there, I met a supervisor/waiter, Ayhan Tokok, from Turkey who knows the
waiter, Mustafa Yillmaz, that Katie and I had on our Disney cruise! It's really a
Afterward, I found Bruce and Page and sat a while poolside, talking with them.
Other than that, I don't recall what I did the rest of the day. Whatever it was,
it wasn't very noteworthy
This evening was the first of two Formal dinners during the cruise.
Since we were on Anytime Dining, we were not able to get the same table/waiter as
the first night, but still ended up with good ones, who we were with the rest of

At Sea - Day 2
After a late breakfast, Joe, Dianne, Katie, Lynda, and I went to hot a tub near
the adult pool. After a while of being too hot, although the tub was actually
under heated, I took a dip in the pool to cool off.
When we got hungry again, I invited Dianne to join me at Johnny Rockets for lunch.
I'm not much for eating hamburgers often, but I had been lusting after one from
Johnny Rocket's since our cruise last year. They have excellent hamburgers and
I think it's the only plact on the ship where you can get amilk shake. In addition,
we had chili cheese fries and onion rings. Dianne also had a cherry Coke. And,
probably every half hour, the waiters dance to a couple of oldies but goodies.
One of the onboard activities was Jewelry Making. I purchased a kit for $10.00
and proceeded in a not-too-well-lit lounge to assemble the beads and jump rings
into a necklace, bracelet, and earrings without any tools or layout board for
most of the session. Fortunately, I already knew what I was supposed to be doing,
and with help from Dianne and Page (who decided NOT to purchase a kit) in laying
out the three jewelry pieces. Now that I am home, I'll have to get my tools out
and rework everything I did so the jewelry won't be falling apart when I'm trying
to wear it!
To celebrate Mardi Gras, some of us wore masks and beads. This is what I call
having great fun with great friends. The Formal dinner was
an Italian night theme and the waiters sang O Sole Mio en mass. I think
this was the night that John, Debbie, Tracy and Harry went to the Chops specialty
restaurant, so we didn't get photos of them.
After dinner it was our treat and pleasure to see the stage show with the
Texas Tenors (from Houston) who had competed on America's Got Talent. Man, can those
boys sing! And they're pretty good eye-candy, too.
If you're not familiar with them, check out this
and listen to the whole song. (This is a weak recording compared to their stage performance.)
