    Haha, Were you the one from my last review that thought they might get banned just from reading it? :evilsmile::evilsmile: Ah yes, I forgot Andy was on my Windsurf cruise... What's this other pic of Andy, is he being arrested?

    You know who was out making friends. Even the waitress liked him, although she kept calling him Luke Skywalker. :p:p

    Our port mate, Harmony of the Seas, last seen hosting Dale and Andy. (And, Mandy:mad:). The Odd looking Seaside. Every time I mentioned her wide rear end, Rhonda thought I was talking about her. :confused: Tyrion and I displaying our motto. So, then this became my view for the rest of the day.

    Tuesday, we were in St Maarten. The plan was to take the ferry to the beach, maybe have lunch and a few adult beverages then s̶t̶u̶m̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶b̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶s̶h̶i̶p̶ return like responsible adults to the ship. Notice, I said "the plan". What did Robert Burns teach us? The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. I was struggling so badly with my knee pain that the walk to the pier almost killed me. There, I decided to sit and have a guavaberry colada while Rhonda shopped and looked around. The bar was cash only and I only had my credit card, or so I thought. Luckily, the Master of Coin was nearby and helped ease my burden. Tyrion and I amused ourselves while Rhonda was out shopping. He didn't care for the guavaberry, said it was too fruity. He prefers something with a little more kick. While sitting there, daydreaming, I realized I didn't even have my credit card with me! Like a newbie, I got off the ship with nothing but my cruise card in my pocket. :o When Rhonda returned from her adventures, I told her and she said it was too hot anyway and she just wanted to go back to the ship. Well, who am I to deny her? So, we were actually in St Maarten for about an hour. ;p

    Now, Sunday and Monday were both sea days, which is when I usually do my posting. These two days are kind of blurred together because they were spent leaving my camera in my cabin , trying to upload pictures. You know if there isn't photographic evidence of what I did, I'm going to deny it. So, here are a few of the photos from those two days, the ones that did upload, forgive the lack of a narrative. This is the kind of can-do attitude I like to see! I emerged from my cabin at the crack of noon and everyone was looking outside. Turns out there was a water spout off the starboard side. Rhonda got up earlier than me and was flexing her cruise card down at the shops. The Cruise Critic Meet and Mingle was well attended. That's Stephen, the Cruise Director. They had nice treats for us and a CC cake. I'll post those pictures when I get back home. I got my chocolate ship, which I promptly donated to Rhonda. This is a terrible picture of it, but, I posted it to show how they have evolved their delivery of the ships. My first few Divina cruises, I got the ship served on a plate with a cover over it, like food in the dining room. It was kind of a eat it or wrap it in the plastic bag that carried your undies to the ship scenario. :o On Seaside in April, it came wrapped in a decorative plastic bag, so, you could easily take it home. Which I did, and also donated to Rhonda. Now, this time, it is in a plastic box, also easy to transport home.

    Sunday morning was my usual Breakfast of Champions. Tyrion was not impressed with the choice of beverage. Then, we went out exploring, Rhonda was unafraid of the Infinity Bridge, Of course, she may have imbibed some liquid courage before she went. Our adventures took us to the Sports Bar, which Rhonda keeps calling the Sports Bra. :') I eventually had my first pizza of the cruise, It was cold.

    Ebony and ivory, you know I love them both. :halo::halo::halo: It's nice to hear from the two of you, people who have actually cruised with me and can defend my honor. Now, everybody, watch how quickly they leap to my defense! :')

    Hilarious! And, mostly true! Well, I was able to get some of my pictures to load, so, I can at least do a partial review. Maybe I should stop trying to upload X-rated pictures? :evilsmile::evilsmile:

    For dessert, I had the Cheesecake. It was fabulous! Tyrion helped me finish my wine, while Rhonda signalled the waitress that she was being held hostage by a crazy person. I love how the sunset makes the buildings look like they are on fire.

    I had the Caesar Salad. Rhonda had the chest burster, devilled eggs. We needed protection from small motor craft. I had the Filet Mignon, it was overcooked, so, I sent it back. I felt bad, but, it was most decidely not medium rare, more like medium. The second try was rare, bloody rare. Too rare, I didn't have the heart to send it back, I've never sent back food before in my life. I ate it, but, I didn't take a picture. :(

    As a Black member, I get one free dinner at a specialty restaurant, so, steak it was. We were the only ones there. The view from Deck 16 was spectacular. Miami-Dade's finest were keeping us safe. They were busy chasing away jetskkiers. Please, anyone out there, what is this building, it was driving us nuts.
