|View from the Balcony|
Okay, I admit. I'm still a little anxious about not seeing land. But I am getting better about it.
I took my morning cup of coffee out on the balcony and sat and watched water and more water. The glass bottom of the balcony provided a even wider view of the endless water.
The night before during turn down service, our room steward, Bertino, left a booklet called the Cruise Compass on what would be happening on Day 2. Activity schedule, dress code for dinner, Headliner show information and other fun little tidbits about the cruise. There is a plethora of things to do while at sea besides lounging poolside.
Take in a movie. How about a Spanish lesson? Ballroom dancing any one? Not into the foxtrot? How about learning Michael Jackson's Thriller dance moves? Learn to make a cocktail. Or play a game of adult dodgeball. If you get bored, it's your own fault. There is no lack of things to keep you busy. Or do what I did and take a nap. Relax...you are on vacation!
Dinner on our first full day at sea called for formal dress code. Yep, fancy dress and suit and tie type of dress code. Our tablemates included our friends from Alaska and three other couples from Texas and Minnesota who also had their seating mixed up. We had ten people seated at a table for eight. Let's just say it was cozy. The food was excellent however, with impeccable service from our server, Jovita and her assistant, Marcus. Our new dinner companions were very friendly and I think we all enjoyed each other's company.
You want pictures of us all dressed up for dinner? Too bad. I didn't take any.
Tomorrow - Cozumel, Mexico.
