On the cruise we had a total of four days at sea. So what did we do on a day at sea?
We passed by active volcanoes.
Of course on sea days – we sat by the pool, or when we got up to late to get a seat deck 12. And when you sit by the pool, you must have a drink!
We also did one of my favorite things – Climbed the Rock Wall!
One night the cruise had a “White Night” where everyone was supposed to wear white and they had a “White Party” by the pool. And of course they had a yummy buffet!
Along with the “White Night” they had a “Disco Party” in the Centrum one night. Unfortunately my pictures didn’t really come out. There was singing and dancing and a performance by the Village People, also known as the activities staff, cruise director, photographer and guest relations.
Our first and third days at sea were also the formal nights. We had a total of 3 formal nights but Kenny and I only went to two. Here we are at the first one.
And here we are at the third one (we skipped the second one).
Oh and in case you were wondering which was the lobster night, they don’t do the lobster anymore, they do jumbo shrimp. Kenny was very disappointed.
As you may or may not be able to tell we are at a table for 6 and we are sitting alone. Don’t be sad! We originally had a British honeymooning couple at our table. On the third or fourth night we noticed they were missing and we thought they had just eaten dinner somewhere else. Then on the formal night they weren’t there, but I knew I had seen them getting photos. We soon found out that they had made friends and had moved to another table. Which was a-okay with us because he was very annoying and we liked having all the attention at the table. The food was not as good as we expected. Although I was a very big fan of the cold fruit soups. (For some reason I crave cold fruit soup at home a lot. And the cruise was the first time I had actually had it.) Strawberry with mint was my first, Kenny swears it was just strawberry daiquiri mix.
Remember the champagne and cupcakes? In addition to those we also received canapes on the first formal night and petit fours and chocolate covered strawberries. A treat to us from us!
Our last treat to us from us (Royal Caribbean Romance Package) was breakfast in bed.
Every night there was a different show – and surprisingly they were really good. There was a magic act, singers, dancers, a Motown group, the Rat Pack and so on. We treated ourselves to “bar service” every night. On the last night the waiter looked at Kenny and said “jim beam and coke, right?” That’s when I realized it was probably a good thing we were going home the next day. These are pics from the last night.
