Day 7 – Day at Sea
Woke up at 4:15am due to my cold. Noticed very little movement from the ship – this cruise has been incredibly smooth.
My wife did Zumba by the pool with the activities director Elvis and had a fantastic time. We also watched the “Captain vs. Passengers” water volleyball games which were very entertaining. At lunchtime we did a backstage tour of the theatre that was offered to Diamond members. My seven year old daughter loves to dance, so she was thrilled to be backstage with us.
We had lunch by the pool and then sent the kids to Adventure Ocean. Emily and I went down to the Centrum and watched a ‘cha cha’ dancing class.
I guess I’m an old phart – I actually enjoy listening to the Captain’s announcements. I wish I could turn on the announcements in the cabin like they had in the past. Captain Marek was quite personable, his English is excellent, and he announced birthdays and anniversaries of people (including crew). I thought that was a nice touch.
Dinner was excellent, I managed to have an Italian-based dinner even though I don’t normally care for that style of food. It was quite good.
Each night I usually “pass” on dessert, as the dinner is so good. A few days earlier my son whispered something into the waiter’s ear, and today I was suprised with this:
We said goodbyes to our tablemates and waitstaff, and then took the kids for a final quick a dip in the pool.
I hit a couple of the bars for a few final drinks and then finally went to bed around 11:30pm.
