Bernie dressed and went out and I rolled over and feel asleep finally.
There is an Crew Emergency Drill happening and they make announcements that can be heard in the cabin so it is hard to sleep too much but I sleep in between announcements.
When I finally woke at 11 we both doned our bathing suits and lots of sunscreen and went up to deck 16 forward where there was no one and settled in.
It is very hot and we needed to cool off periodically in the pool. Oh and the pools were cold but once we were in it was perfect and we were so very hot getting in so anything would of been cold.
The new group of dancers on board are practicing the Love Boat Disco Deck Party - boy that must be hot.
We relax in the sun for quite a few hours. Lots of sunscreen! I am not getting burned in odd spots like last week. And there are a lot of people walking around with bad sun burns.
I wander around and take some pictures of the area from ship so that I can later put up more detailed information on where things are and how to get to it from the ship.
Around 3 we head back to the cabin to shower and tidy up. We decide to head to the Happy Hour in the Wheelhouse bar.
Happy Hour means you buy one drink at full price and you get the exact same drink for a $1. It is busy but not as crazy as it is when we are at sea where it is crazy! Dominique takes care of us -- yes she has moved from Crooners to Wheelhouse this voyage.
Jerry joins us for drinks. I had the Captain's Bounty and after two I am feeling good!
Happy Hour last two hours which is kind of long. It isn't like I can drink more than two drinks anyhow but I guess it gives people more time to enjoy a drink at least.
Even though we stayed on, there are a lot of activities happening if you want to stay busy.
Things happening are Morning Trivia, Movie Jason Bourne, Pictionary, golf putting challenge, carpet bowl challenge, 80's music trivia, afternoon tea, and Mariachi sailaway party.
After happy hour we head back to the cabin to change for the evening.
The Most Travelled Cocktail Party is happening at 7 pm in Adagio. It is exactly the same as last week. We pose for a picture, we say hi to some of the officers and we take a seat. Today we are sitting with Gidea the Crew Manager and the Future Cruise Consultant (sorry forgot her name). It is nice to chat with them and we know so many people that they do. We also enjoy learning more about South Africa.
After the party we decide to head down to Salty Dog again. It is 8 pm so there is no problem getting in. In fact for most of the meal we are the only people there. The meal was really good. This time I had the soup and grilled cheese and then the mini burger - but we can't finish it all, we are stuffed.
Tonight there doesn't seem to be a lot happening but that could just be us as we were on last week so some things we don't want to see again.
Events tonight are: Showtime is vocal stylings of Rebecca Jean The Girl from Oz. Love Boat Disco Deck Party Dance Class in club fusion, Comedy Showtime at 7 and 8:45 of A. J. Jamal, Effy is having a party, $500 Blackjack Tournament, Karaoke, Love Boat Disco Deck Party.
Oh it was Italian Night in the dining room.
For us we wander around a bit after dinner but we both agree to just call it a night and head back to the cabin to relax - but we are asleep just before 10:30. Guess we needed it.
