Zencruising On The Breakaway 4-28-19!!!

Recommended Posts

Soon it was time for sail away. I am always fascinated on how such large ships can 180 in such a small place.

It was soon time for dinner. We went originally had a reservation for specialty dining but time got away from us and we were unable to make it. We ended up eating at the MDR-Taste. It was an nice relaxing meal. I failed on the food porn on this day. I got our appetizers and my Michelob Ultra.

After dinner we took a stroll along the Waterfront. We really enjoy this feature on the ship. It here that you can stand on glass and watch the water go by below. Soon after we headed back to our cabin and called it a night. Up next is a sea day.

I am a early riser so I was up at 5:00am on day 2. I like to walk around the upper decks while the sun is coming up. It is such a tranquil feeling to watch the day begin on the ocean. I went to the gym at about 615. It was crowded at that time but i did manage to get some time on the treadmill. What a view. I hit the gym  few other days and I found if you waited until 7:13am it wasn't nearly as crowded.

We were out at the pool at 730 and scored a good location by the hot tub tubs. We are considerate about the loungers. We never leave them unattended for long periods of time. I started the morning off with a Painkiller and Mrs Zen had a Bloody Mary. Both were delicious and went down easy. Before we knew we were done with round 2 .I spent a lot of time though out the cruise at Waves poolside bar. I really enjoy being out and listening to the reggae band.

Our sea day was getting off to a good start. I believe up next was a Tequila Sunrise. On our last 2 cruises I have kept a daily drink log just for the fun of it. Just past the haze was Cuba which was barely visible form the ship. Soon it was time for Cruise  Critic Meet & Greet. I want to thank AZYAYA for organizing this. She did a great job .I believe we had over 60 people there. We had to go down the stairs of sobriety to get the meet and greet. If you can make down these stairs you aren't too inebriated. 🙂

We had about 1-1/2 between the meet & greet and the slot pull so our next stop was the Atrium bar. I asked the bartender to surprise me and make with something with Tequila. Mrs Zen asked for something with Vodka. Thanks again Sid_9169 for that idea. Both drinks were delicious. We then headed back to the pool for a bit before slot pull. Another trip to Waves bar by the pool was in store.

Next if was off the slot pull. We each put up $21.00. We all took turn spinning. We won a little bit but we decided to keep going until we donated it all back.It was good time and we always enjoy the Cruise Critic Slot pull. After that was over it was back upstairs to the pool.

Paul at the Waves poo bar kept hooking me up with tasty beverages. Each time he handed me  drink he would say "see you in 20 minutes." I wasn't about to get off schedule.

Soon Mrs Zen was in need of a nap so she retreated back to the cabin. I stayed and kept on schedule. A random selfie with new cruise peeps/  We were all  having a blast.A few more painkillers.

Are you using "FlyBy"?  If so, how are they working?  I just ordered some for our next cruise in 7 days and will be trying them out.

This is where is starts to get i little hazy. A group of us did a Tequila shot (our shots). It was a great sea day but soon it was time to head back to the cabin to get ready for dinner.

Due to a day of excess, by the time i got back to the cabin and got ready we had again missed our specialty dining reservation. We ended up eating  at the MDR and had a good relaxing evening. After the meal we cruised around the upper decks for a while and then headed back to the cabin. Tomorrow we arrive in Roatan, Honduras.
