We eased into the day with a walk and a light breakfast. We found the time changed every other day on this cruise due passing through time zones and countries that were on different times. Up on deck to catch some rays we enjoyed the bocce on the lawn and caught the glass blowing show. Very cool, well actually pretty hot. They do an amazing job and the creations are auctioned off at the end of the cruise to provide scholarships. What a great idea.
Time to check out the pools. A dip in the 'adult' solarium, the hot tub, out to the big pool and dancing on the deck. The dance surface has holes with jets of water that shot up in varying patterns and tempos. Woe to the performer who drifts off the stage forgetting the random jumps in water height. LOL
We met Rick and Alan at the trivia. Okay we won that one, but I'll give credit to the guys it was music from movies. Not necessariiy the theme music but could be from a random spot. The funniest moment was when Jackie played the clip from Pulp Fiction a moment too long and the dialog was... you Mother F.....er She was mortified. (or at least I thought she was, maybe she was just playing us.)
We took in the Mayan lecture - it was okay...
We dressed for our formal night and met with Don and Stacy for Champagne. They were choked!! Celebrity allows you to bring a limited amount of alcohol on board. This cruise there were signs posted at the port saying no alcohol. Well a little late for us as we packed the stuff before we left Tacoma. It turns out Don and Stacy's suitcase was one of those that are randomly screened and the wine they had packed had been removed. Our suitcase too was screened only they left our wine, which was sitting right on top, alone.... again.. go figure. The line claimed the rules were special because of The college's spring break.
Food.. always something to think about on a cruise. I had the sea bass which was a little fishy. The chef said that was because it was fatty... shouldn't that really be because it was a little old? Ohhh... then a birthday cake for me!!!!!!!!!!!!
And the day isn't over. Then Captain's Toast, Karoke, Jukebox and dance. Jukebox is my favourite. We chatted with them and they know Mark, a former student of Roger's who was in Real Time, they also know of Robin's group Lionsgate Chorus. The Karaoke was okay some good, some not so good. Roger sang Danny boy in honour of Denny. Awwww.
See the clocks change again tonight, now we are only one hour ahead of Vancouver.
