January 17 and 18 - Sea Days on the Grand Princess

Oh what a feeling to wake and realize you are onboard a beautiful ship and it is just the begining. We got dressed and were excited because today is the day that we had our formal meet and greet.

Sea days are one of our favorite things about cruising. And every day you can find us in the coffee bar enjoying a latte and tea and not to mention a few little treats.

Thanks to Brian for organizing the meet and greet in Skywalker's and many of the officers attended. Silly me I forgot my camera.

We tried to get some sun up on the deck but the winds were so strong that you couldn't rest comfortably. Many shoes, blankets and books were blown all around the deck.

Here is our cabin steward Joel I have to say he is the best steward we have ever had.

On the 18th we got up and I quickly kissed my hubby and wished him a happy birthday. Our cabin door was decorated with baloons.

Later in the day we headed up to the top deck and the beautiful Sanctuary. For $10 for half a day you get a wonderful lounge chair, refreshing water, high end towels, personalized wait staff and peace and quiet.
Unfortunately the weather changed and a storm came and and we were advised we may want to go undercover. About 20 minutes later the staff at the Sanctuary came over and gave us coupons for another visit to the Sanctuary for free as the with the weather there was no way they could stay open. So down we go to the cabin and a relaxing afternoon and getting ready for Bernie's Birthday dinner.

Tonight we meet up with Colin/Gwenda, Gail/Luis, Vera/Ken for dinner to celebrate another year. Lots of laughs, great company and great food, oh and tonight is the night we meet Julianne our favorite waiter.
