Horizon / Live / Solo - Sep 21-29-2019

Recommended Posts

I wanted something to eat, so I went to the buffet. The line for omelettes was about 8 deep, so I checked the other side, and there was no line. Soon, I would find out why... I present to you, the world's ugliest omelette.

Next, I paid a visit to the bacon police... You think I'm kidding? There's a guy who stands behind a bar with a huge pile of bacon, and he is the one who dispenses however much he thinks you need, and not a single slice more.

I received an invitation to the cruise critic meet and mingle, but it's at 9:00 this morning... What a not so great time to host it... Carnival should at least give people time to wake up and take a shower...

I'll have my coffee with a side of vitamin sea... I was only seconds away from pulling the lever on the regular coffee machine up in the buffet, when I remembered about the real Java Blue in ocean plaza...

 

I went and got in line, and waited for a bit. There was a sign saying that they also had coffee at ocean plaza bar, but I didn't know if it would be the same. I stood my ground. When the line became increasingly longer, the guy behind the counter mentioned that they have the same stuff right over there, no line... Me and about five other people quickly made our way over there, and soon I had my fix...

It may have been ugly but how did it taste?  You've eaten some really ugly (to me) looking things before and you liked how they taste.

I want police at every station of the buffet. I’m sure I could ask for more if I wanted it. But I don’t want to touch your tongs.

Did you make it to the meet and mingle?  I’m sure you’d be quite the celebrity there 😀

I just popped by the cruise critic meet and mingle... Looks like about ten people were there. I wish they could have done it a couple of hours later...

I was going to go in, but people would have probably wanted to shake hands or something... I just kept walking.

The bar at ocean plaza... AKA the secret coffee place.

Java Blue... Seven people in line...

I couldn't get a good picture of the sign

So wait.....does the Ocean Plaza bar have exactly the same coffee choices as Java Blue? Or is it a limited menu?

I just now discovered Guys Pig and Anchor on the port side Lanai... I didn't even know it existed, I thought they just had the restaurant / brew house...

Same coffee, but not all the other fancy stuff.... You have to wait in the long line for that...

The door was unlocked, so I popped into Bonsai Teppanyaki... We'll be eating here in a couple of days... (Well, not we, but you'll be there virtually...)

If you ask for more, they'll gladly give you more.  I've never been refused.

Stairwell art... Another side note: the Horizon seems to have a lot of minor water leaks... There are several places throughout the ship where there's absorbent pads on the floor with a warning sign by it... I just got dripped on a minute ago... I might have to go take another shower...

What is that? Looks cool.

I see your first day was a great success and you are indeed a celebrity!😎

The ship looks nice.

Maybe, instead of the bacon police (or, in addition to the bacon police) they should have a hand washing station police... Make every single person use it prior to handling stuff in the buffet... Another side note: if I ever win the lottery, I'm getting one of these for my house...
