After the last week of getting ready for the trip, traveling to San Diego and boarding the ship, it felt good to know we had a day ahead of us with nothing to do, it’s a “sea day”.
Once again we treated ourselves to a suite (no upgrade to the penthouse this time L) and so we had access to the Neptune Lounge where we can get a continental breakfast if we don’t feel like a full breakfast. Being lazy and not very hungry, that’s what we opted for this morning. There was a mid-morning presentation on the various ship excursions offered on the first half of the cruise, which we decided to attend. We have already made our plans for all of the ports, but it is always interesting to see what is offered.
We had lunch in the Lido and then Val was off to team trivia. Val was surprised yesterday to run into one of her trivia teammates from our South Pacific cruise so they decided to team up again. The “Smarty Pants” trivia team is back! While Val was at trivia, I downloaded pictures and worked on the blog.
After trivia, Val and I headed back to the showroom to hear a talk by our travel guide, Kainoa, on Cabo San Lucas, our port for tomorrow. After that we stayed to listen to a lecture on pirates of the Caribbean, how that fit in with our cruise I don’t know, but it was interesting. We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and reading until it was time for dinner.
We had another good dinner. So far the food has been better than on our Alaskan cruise so we hope that continues. After dinner it was off to the casino and then at 10:00 we decided to go the late show in the showroom. Tonight it was a group called the Unexpected Boys who did songs by the Four Seasons. We weren’t really expecting much, but it turned out to be an entertaining show. After the show it was time for us to call it a night. Tomorrow we’ll arrive at our first port, Cabo San Lucas.
