Day 2- 2/8/10 Sea Day
Today started off cloudy and too cold to go in the pools, so after breakfast we decided to go in the hot tub. We went back to our room first and found 2 letters in the little mailbox. I loved that, for once I was excited to get mail that wasn’t a bill, well not yet anyway..lol The letters were from the casino host stating that we would each get 500 points and a complimentary drink. I was very surprised because we don’t really gamble all that much. So, after changing we went back to the Lido and got in the hot tub. We stayed in there for a while then went up to the spa and used theirs. The spa hot tub is always empty.... love it!
Later that day we did the wine and food pairing up in the Golden Fleece Supper Club. It was a decent turn out. Now, I’m not a wine drinker, but BF likes it so I gave it a go. I thought maybe before I was just trying the wrong wine. Well, let’s just say I’m still not a wine drinker..lol The only one that I thought wasn’t that bad was the Riesling and I still probably couldn’t drink much of it. BF kept laughing at the faces I was making between the food and the wine. He enjoyed it very much, so overall I have to say it was a nice experience. At least I tried, right?
By this time the sun was shining and I could see people out the window laying out. Yay, sun!
We went to eat some lunch and seen a little of the hairy chest contest and then went to take a nap. I realized that no matter how young people may think we are, we need a nap! If I don’t take a nap on a cruise I’m knocked out so early. Between the sun and the snorkeling, I’m wiped out. Not to mention all the food I eat.
It was a nice relaxing day at sea and tonight was the first elegant night, so when we woke up we started to get ready for that.
We had chosen to do your time dining and were glad we did. The wait was not long at all and I was happy not to have to wait in line the first day to request a table for 2. We went down at 8 because we like to eat late and were seated about 15 minutes later. We will definitely choose your time again. The food was great as it always is in my opinion. I had the stuffed mushrooms for an app, which are my favorite, a salad, and the prime rib. BF had shrimp and lobster. We only went to the dining room on the two elegant nights, but I only took pics of the food on the first night.
For dessert can you guess what I had? Hmmmm? That’s right, I had the warm chocolate melting cake. BF also surprised me with a little Happy Birthday sing along with the waiters. My bday was embarkation day. So, on top of the melting cake I ate some of the piece of cake they brought me. I was stuffed after that. After dinner, we went to the casino and did a little gambling. We weren’t as lucky on this cruise as we were on the first, but we had a good time anyway. I found a new favorite penny slot called Hoot Loot, now that game is addicting! I managed to pull myself away. Later that night we went to see the R rated comedian. He was funny and it was a good show.
By the way, BF thought I was crazy when I whipped out the camera to take pics of the food. I told him the people on CC like to see food pics. I got an eye roll on that one..lol
