The Flyby did work. Mrs Zen & I are not big drinkers either but when on a cruise we do like to indulge. It did wonders for me on the first sea day. I woke up the next morning feeling pretty good, Actually I felt much better than I deserved. Thanks for following along on this review. I really enjoy reading yours!

 

 

Good to know about the Flyby. Mine came in the mail over the weekend and I'll give it a try next week. 😄

 

I wanted to ask you about a drink you posted for Mrs Zen...but now I can't find it. I've scrolled to see if I can locate it again but can't....I'm thinking it might have been something named after a candy bar? Like kitkat or something? It was something I hadn't heard of and I wanted to make sure I ask for one when we get on. Any idea what I'm talking about? LOL

 

Oh, and thanks for the comments about my reviews as well. I appreciate it.

THAT'S IT!! I knew it was something that you normally don't hear about. I'm definitely going to have to ask for one of those! Sounds yummy! Thank you

I woke up and hit the gym and then we did breakfast at the buffet and did our usual at the omelette bar. Soon I was off to enjoy some sunshine and Tito's and OJ. It was very peaceful at the front of the ship.

Soon it was time for another meet and greet with the ships officers. We sat at tables of about 4-5 people per table. With an officer at each table they asked what they could do to make our vacation better. They asked us to be honest noting that if they were no aware of things they cannot fix them. Each officer seemed to listen attentively and took notes.

After  the the meeting I grabbed a beer and went back to my spot to take in the view a little more.

Loving your review...doing this same itinerary on the Getaway out of NOLA in November.

Mrs. Zen...where did you get this hat??  If it is local, I need to find it.  So cute!

Also, forgive me if I missed it, but I did not see Day #4 Daily.  Trying to plan out my dinners and activities a bit (but not too much...want to relax also).  Thanks for taking the time to post.

This is Mrs. Zen - Thanks. I got this hat at Target 🙂

Soon after the ropes course Mrs Zen went back to the cabin to take a nap and I as you may guess headed back poolside. The Reggae band was playing so I grabbed a drink and enjoyed the vibes.

Between sets I went and talked to the guys in the band. I asked if they could play some Peter Tosh for me. They came through as soon as their next set started. The did Peter Tosh's version of Johnny B Goode.

i went down to the cabin to take a shower and get ready for tonight's dinner at Ocean Blue.This turned out to be the best meal of our cruise. Save the best for last! The food and service was outstanding. 

 

We both started off with the wedge salad which was cold and crisp. Mrs Zen had a glass of wine. I was pretty much done with my alcohol for the week so I opted for "high quality H20."

Next was Ahi Tuna in raspberry soy sauce.This was what Mrs Zen calls the best bite of food she has ever had, I believe her description was it was "like a party of flavor in my mouth."

For  our main entree we both had the surf and turf (filet & lobster tail), This too did not disappoint. Everything was cooked perfect.

Dessert was next with gelato.

We are sail next April on the Getaway and we definitely be going to Ocean Blue again.

 

 

After dinner we make our last walk around the ship. We also hit the photo studio to check our photos. This took a while due to the fact that is was the last night and that seemed to be what everyone else was doing. Next time we go the day before.

We ate breakfast at the buffet and since we were no leaving to go home until Monday morning we took our time getting off the ship.7B2B03DB-3AC9-4DA7-8AF3-1628FC4042A2.thumb.jpeg.acdf9ae7b4138b43e1cbcfe9189aa8bc.jpeg

 

We were soon making that depressing walk off the ship.
