Loving all the pictures. I don't know what I was expecting of RC but the ship is quite pretty. Kudos for getting up early on vacation to exercise.

The ship is very artsy, I mean lots of nice art objects throughout the ship. I have more later in the cruise.

That wine tasting sounds really fun! I was wondering if everyone got a taste of each bottle. Where was the Choco wine from? Do you remember? That stuff is really tasty!

And how cool on the upgrade! That will be fantastic!

Everybody got a taste, and it was a nice pour, I mean a couple of sips per person.

The Chocolate wine, i have no idea where it was from but it is this kind...

Feb 28, 2013

Up at 7 AM again, this is becoming a habit.... We got up and got dressed, and headed up to the gym.

I again had a terrible night of sleep; I was so hot at times that I soaked the sheets with sweat.

Nowhere near as many people as where on the first day, we are only two days and people are already falling off the workout wagon. David headed to the treadmill and again I headed to the bicycles to work out, I am trying to give my legs a little break from the pounding. Hopefully giving my shins time to heal (Alison, I have developed your beloved shin splints!). The pain in the left one is nowhere near as bad as it was. So maybe it is working or I am just relaxing on the cruise. We worked out for around 45 minutes and headed back to the room to shower and clean up.

I was done in the cabin first, and went ahead to meet up with everyone for breakfast, in the dinner room. David came up a little later. We had breakfast with J/M B/P, R/J, and Heidi, service was extremely slow, and I swear it is getting worse. Today I complained very loudly! I have no idea what is causing it. David and I both ordered scrambled egg whites and turkey sausage, smoked salmon, and what we got was Fried egg whites, with the yolk cut out and then chopped up, with one turkey sausage, and one salmon. Why can they not get our orders right! I took the menu up to the manager and pointed out what I ordered and showed him my plate and asked what the problem was? I also ordered some Kadota figs and some nonfat plain yogurt. The figs were so good. David got some fresh berries that he really liked also.



I then talked to our server, and asked her about the egg whites, and why we were not able to get them the way we ordered them, and she assured me that it would be fixed by tomorrow. As we were sitting there drinking our tea, Bob had left to do something and came back to get David and I, the future cruise lady was open and could see us now. So, we left breakfast and headed that way.

She was able to see us right them and we booked the Feb 18th cruise, an Eastern Caribbean cruise with J&M and B&P, we booked cabin 3059, the one connecting to ours right now. We paid the deposit and she was telling us that there is another coupon we could add to this one that will save us another $115 on the cabin. Once the coupon has been applied she will send us a confirmation of the booking, she also reminded me that I needed to give our travel agent the booking number of J&M so he could tie them together.

We headed back to the cabin to pick up the iPad and both of us came up to the Diamond lounge to catch up on the journaling and get a cappuccino.

[Continued from Previous Post]

After a couple of hours, we walked down to the 4th floor to see what was on the menu and saw B & P in line for lunch, so we stalked them and went to lunch with them. We shared a salad that David made in the salad bar area, and we each had the grilled catch of the day, it was a version of tilapia. The fish was really good and it was served with mashies and green beans. It is one of the few things that we have liked in there. For dessert I had coffee ice cream, and ended up giving, it to Bob, after a few bites, David had the sugar free cheesecake with raspberry coulis.

Looking down the atrium to the 3rd deck.


























The name of the Dining Room is “My Fair Lady” and here she is

We walked around the ship and took pictures of the art and ship for Alison. We stopped and talked to Heidi for a few minutes, she was telling us that her DH hates to cruise, so she comes by herself. We walked out around the fantail of the ship it was windy but beautiful.



This is Heidi










The Rock Climbing Wall










We stopped up at Starbucks to grab a snack; we got the double espresso brownie again to share, it is really good.

We stopped at boleros to watch the jewelry making and we picked up two sets to make later.


As we were leaving we stopped by the guest services desk, to get a deck of cards and ask about the movie schedule, we met a guy by the name of Checker. He was a character, funny and nice and could not help on either item we wanted.

He sent us down to Chops, to get a deck of cards; there was an informal card game time there. I was surprised there were as many people in there, lots of pick up card games. Chops is a beautiful restaurant, it is the specialty restaurant, there is an up charge to eat in there but the food is so amazing. David and I have eaten in Chops several times in the past; we were working on the group to see if they wanted to go with us.















Now it was time to go back to the cabin and change for dinner, it is a business casual night, which I really like. We made our way up to the diamond lounge. Where D&C brought up a gag gift for me, it was a see thru breast cover, big as salad bowls; I covered my face so no pictures could be used of my face with this thing on.




I was drinking cosmos tonight (notice it is plural); David was sticking with the whiskey.
Finally, we made our way to dinner…


I started with the jalapeño potato soup.


David had the Cesar salad with extra anchovies.


I had the lamb and veal ravioli,


David had the tilapia and shrimp without any sauce.


Chicken curry and tofu curry, both were good.




I had a chocolate sensation with a scoop of vanilla ice cream,


and David had the mango pudding.


After dinner, we walked to the other side of the dining room to see Sanjay (our assistant waiter) from last year and took a few pictures.





Back at the cabin, we found a towel animal of big AL....

We got an invite for tomorrow, I am sure we will not go…

Those are great updates! You take amazing pictures!!! Few things...

(1) I was waiting forever to see pics of you (and David) and there finally was one!

(2) I'll take the BBB Brulee (altho I rarely have dessert after dinner on a cruise, this one I'd have to sample)

(3) I may need to hire you on as a personal photographer for vacations!!! Not a bad job, right?

(4) LOVE the houndstooth cap! Well the pattern anyways . I got married in a houndstooth dress and it is one of my fave patterns!

1. I am always taking the pictures, so it is hard to get in the photo's...

2. I usually only take one or two bites of everything, that way I get to try things and not gain too much!

3. Sure I will take pictures for you, you just hire me. I love to take photos...

4. I got that for Christmas and I love it. I got a scarf to go with it.
I need to see that dress, got a picture you can share?

Here you go... it's kind of a "blurry" houndstooth. I had a more precise houndstooth headband to match



Yeah it was dark outside. Stupid limo driver was like an hour late
