I didn't realize you both just turned 40! You're still so young! And what a nice way to treat yourselves for your birthdays to a cruise!

Drinks make us smile

You both look awesome!

We were going to stop at O'Gills to see how the Cardinals were faring against the Giants in the NLCS, but every television was showing football and there were people there with children?!?! Sorry, junior; you may be a rabid fan of the pigskin, but we like to drink with adults so make like an egg and scramble on out of here.

Agreed, children don't belong in the adult areas

Jay and I left instead ... football is not our sport of choice, anyway ... and we decided to visit Ooh La La for a bubbly nightcap. I'm not sure how I felt about the decor in this lounge ... I kept looking around for racks of souvenir DCL lingerie. I guess that's not too outrageous considering it's supposed to resemble a French boudoir. It was just a little too soft and plush for our tastes, but the drinks were prime and the bartender there was a hoot.

Fancy Schmancy

Maybe it's a bit too plush?

The bar is totally cool!

I think it looks cool! I'm going there 2014!

I decided to order the Elderbubble, not because I was feeling my age but because it included Elderflower liqueur which I adore. The drink also included Raspberry Vodka and Champagne ... an all boozie booze-filled drink to send me off into sweet dreams of another day at sea. I thought this drink was outstanding and once again not overly sweet.

The Elderbubble

Oh, my! Another drink with Elderflower and also Champagne, 2 of my favs, noting to try that drink!

Stay tuned for a second day at sea, where we book two cruises, finally get in on the midship detective agency game, enjoy champagne lunch at Remy and snooze away a fair portion of the day.

Thanks for reading!!
