We got up and went to the gym. Used the stair stepper and tread mill. Then went to the Lido and gorged ourselves without regret. However, as I'm writing this and the clothes are less roomy, there should have been some regret.
Shelley had me try their Swiss style Mueslix. It consisted of oatmeal, yogurt honey and fruit. Loved it and had it everyday for breakfast (among other things). We ran into two friends from [email protected] we met on board, Maw and Paw and ate breakfast with them.
After breakfast we went to the Lido pool. The top was mainly closed and it was a bit smoky, so we went to the aft pool instead. Lots of empty chairs, not at all like Carnival. Spent most of the afternoon out there or back at the Lido pool, in the hot tub and hanging out with people from the [email protected] roll call. Went back to the gym in the late afternoon (wow, twice in one day).
This was our first formal night. Just about all men I saw followed the dress code, with the exception of one person in a jacket but no tie. This was not meant to pass judgement, just an observation.
For dinner I had a shrimp cocktail, lobster bisque and filet. The filet was excellent, but small, so I also ordered the salmon. Regarding shrimp. This night they had jumbo shrimp. However, they often had bay shrimp in the Lido. These are shrimp too small for Red Lobster to serve. It really looked cheap and they would have been better saving them for shrimp salad.
The evening's entertainment was the cast show. It was a review of the 50s and 60s. Excellent show. I don't know where the cast gets its energy. Having a wonderful time so far.
