OK, I took pics, but they are hard to read on my laptop. If you can't blow them up and see them, let me know and I will attempt a different method. Like I said above, I'm missing Tuesday, our 2nd day at sea. If you want more info than what I've posted, I can take pics of the rest of it too, or maybe scan them. I'm just posting the activity schedules.

OK, so it's TEATIME!

You get to pick your teabag


And you choose your little desserts from a cart (plus they serve cucumber sandwiches)




It's a fun activity to break up the day. Something different to do. It's at 3pm on seadays

THank you!


Dinner time! Sara ordered the shrimp cocktail every night. I'm not crazy about it. Kinda mushy.


vegetable spring rolls. These are offered every night and are very good


lobster night! The lobster was just OK, but the tiger shrimp that came with it were the best shrimp ever! I didn't order this, but luckily Josie didn't want all her shrimp, so momma got some.


Now THIS was good! Carbonara pasta


some kind of apple puff pastry

2nd sea day!

We went to the Dr. Seuss trivia. There were some really hard questions, but my mom is a retired elementary school librarian, so she helped us with the tough ones. We actually won! (we were told we could work as a team) The guy running the show gave all the kids a medal for participating, which was super cute.

My kid blistered her feet on those steps last September. We were sitting around the pool. She decided she was old enough to go up and go on the slide by herself. I said okay and I would be watching her. Saw her run up the steps and stop and bend over...I thought she was goofing around. Poor thing

Next up was the Seuss parade! Everyone met in the theater in the front of the ship and the parade went all the way to the theater in the back of the ship through deck 5. There were Dr. Seuss characters marching with us and the staff gave all the kids banners, signs, pom poms, cowbells, etc and had everyone chant "seuss on the loose" over and over as we marched. It was cute.



The theater where the parade ended is where story time was. Everyone was invited to sit on the stage and the cruise director, Hennie, read Cat in the Hat and they picked 4 audience members to participate in acting out the story....A man, a woman, and 2 kids. It was fun, fast paced, and kept all the kids' attention.



Speaking of Hennie the cruise director....I think he did an excellent job. I saw him all over the place mingling with the crowds. He was the most visible CD I've experienced. I've been on cruises where I never even saw the CD. And I guess he's in charge of the daily activities (right?) and it seemed like there was always tons of fun things to do, lots of trivia, lots of karaoke, games, etc.

Oh no! That's awful They should have a warning sign, in my opinion. Just a simple "Deck and stairs get hot, so feel free to wear your flip flops on the slides"

Check out how crowded the lido deck got!




Not the best picture, but this is the serenity deck (adults only) on 12th deck.


We ate an early dinner of pizza and hamburgers so that we could hit the Karaoke at 7:30pm. My girls LOVE to sing karaoke!! On our way there, we checked out the piano bar.


And here is Sara karaoke-ing. They both did so good and were so excited to be up there. It's the little things lol


Then back to the room for an early bedtime so we'd be ready for ROATAN!!!
