Mar 01, 2013

Woke up at 7 AM and headed to the gym to work out again. This is becoming a daily routine. As we were working out, we saw us coming into Tortola, British Virgin Islands; it was pretty to watch the coast float by as you are on the elliptical. We got cleaned up and headed up to breakfast.

Figs and nonfat yogurt... Tea, egg whites, (the first time it was every right), with turkey sausage, smoked salmon. David had the same thing, but no yogurt. J&M and us, everyone else was on board the mystique, we saw her pull out of port. It only took maybe 30 minutes this morning and everything was right… Maybe I just need to cause a little trouble..







After breakfast, we go play a round of trivia with J&M we came in second again!!!!! Not a good start to the day, ha-ha! We go back to the cabin, to get ready to get off the ship. Today we are in Tortola, and it has to be one of the worst ports we visit in the past. There is really nothing here.













Someone mentioned that we might like this store called Sunny Caribbee, it is a spice, and art store, everything in there was overpriced and we did not find anything we wanted.






We walked through the town square which was amazingly small; there was only the police station and a statue of this man.

Continued from Previous Post

Then we went to the tee shirt shop, Jim is looking for a Harley Davidson tee for his pastor. But there is no Harley store here, and I talk him out of buying a knock off. Once you walk out of the port area, there is one Main Street, two shops and that is it. We took a stroll, stopped at Pusser's outpost, and had a beer and wandered around their gift shop; from here we walked back to the ship.








This is what they put our bill in


This was to the gift shop area.






These guys were fishing











We came on board and headed straight to the Windjammer, the only option for food, while in a port. It was so crowded and hot. There was so many people coming in different directions, you can get a plate at each end and aim for each other, it was as if people meet in the middle and cause a traffic jam. There was a dozen or so different meals to have but none of them were very good. I had some beef and peanut satay, chicken piccata, cauliflower, and lamb and roasted vegetables, and creole fish. We shared a salad with raspberry vinaigrette.








We left the Windjammer and headed to our cabin and we would meet up for trivia. I was feeling so bad, we played one round of trivia, and then Marylou and I headed out and left David and Jim there to play more. I stopped by the Starbucks place and picked up a chocolate Chip Scone and Double Chocolate Chip Cookie. David and Jim won the TV theme show music trivia and lost the logo trivia.

I was watching how to lose a guy in 10 days and then it was time to get dressed and go to the Diamond Lounge and have a few drinks. I missed the last 15 minutes; I guess I was more interested in drinks with friends… (I did see the end later in the cruise)

We are cruising at this point, headed to the next port of call















For dinner,


David had the shellfish saffron consommé and a Cesar salad with Anchovies as a starter




I had the Chilled banana and orange soup.


So for the main course, David had the Pan fried pork medallions



I had the Asian Duck and the wild mushroom and goat cheese pizza.




I was hungry; I swear this is the most of any meal I ate…



I did not feel good, so I left after dinner



David stayed for dessert, the sugar free orange yogurt pudding.



I was asleep when David got back to the room.

All caught up. I'm so glad David's procedure went well.

Great updates. Sad that it took some complaining to get breakfast right...

I think I found the ship more interesting than your port of the day.


Glad you finally got the right order at breakfast and I hope that you were feeling better after a rest.

We are both happy with the results on him also, it was a great relief.

The breakfast should not cause as much trouble as it does either, but so far so good with the breakfast.

Sleep always makes me feel better. I was not impressed with the port either. I think I told everyone before that we do not go on this cruise for the ports, but rather the sunshine, warmth and not being in Maryland/DC during Feb...

Mar 02, 2013

So we were up at 7 am again heading to the gym, David forgot to set an alarm but got up 4 hours early when he remembered and reset it.

After the workout, we headed to breakfast. It was B&P, J&M, C&D, and US. We got all of our breakfast items as planned. WOW!!!!

We came back to the room and got ready and then we meet up with J&M at 10 AM at the exit on the 1st deck.

Today we are at St. John's Antigua.











We were attacked by everyone out there to take a taxi; no one would take a simple NO, the followed us, and changed the places to take us. Again, Jim was looking for the Harley shirt and none was to be found. It is so not worth doing anything here; I did look for lotion and bought some at the grocery store. There are a bunch of stores here, to shop in, and a type of flea market, but I guess I am over it. We have been here many many times.






We decided to just go to the internet place and have a beer. The Cheers bar, we had a couple of Carib's and all the email was reviewed. It was just a relaxing way to hang out and enjoy the warm weather.



We saw Rod and Jean there, talked for a minute, looked at a few stores and so we headed back to the ship.



I just can’t follow directions, I was stuck in a queue here checking our sea pass cards, and I saw this… So I had to take a picture of it…



Once on board, we headed straight to our cabin, and ordered room service. I was not going to go back to the windjammer. It took about 30 minutes to get to us; we ordered 2 Mediterranean salads with chicken, a grilled Panini with Turkey and Swiss, a seeded rye sandwich, with Salmon and Brie, the cookies of the day, and some ice tea.

I can’t believe that I did not take a picture of any of this… I was so bad.


We met up for general trivia in the lounge at 2:15. We played with Denny and his friends (Al and Cathy) from Canada. We won and got a Royal Caribbean ball point pen.

We left there and went to the Starbucks place, and I got the cranberry bliss bar, David got the sunflower seed granola bar, the cranberry bar was not good, it was almost frozen and the granola bar was pretty good, as we were sitting there eating our goodies, Denny came over to tell us he looked up the golf ball question, how many golf balls are on the moon. 2..... he had printed out the answer and gave it to us.

We walked by the art gallery, talked to the Park West people there, and talked a little about the art. After we finished there we walked outside to get a little walking in, we ran into Dot and Steve, and Bob and Phyllis. We talked for a little while and then came back to the room to get ready for the Diamond Lounge.

In the Diamond lounge, I had a cosmo and then switched to vodka and soda water. There was an amazing sunset, all blues, pinks, and orange.

[Continued from previous post]

We left there to go to dinner



For starters, I had the Chilled Cherry Bisque; it was good, and sweet, so I only had a very small part and sent the rest back.



Saul, our Maître d, had the kitchen make some Mexican food, on the side, so he brought a very sad excuse for Fajita, it was almost Italian, too much tomato, but it tasted good, just not Mexican food. Saul was laughing so much; he was complaining that he cannot get Mexican food on the ships. None of the cooks are Mexican, they are all of Asian decent.



David had a Cesar salad with extra anchovies.


Then Saul, brought out a fish dish, with a load of tomatoes and jalapeños. It tasted good, but not like Mexican food, it was like spicy Italian food.

Next, I had the English cheddar Cheese Sticks with Lingonberry relish, it was all bad....



David also had shrimp cocktail with Champagne sauce.



Fati brought us some curry and briana made with chicken, and raisins.




I also ordered the sole off the menu.


David ordered the roasted chicken with the sage dressing.





Lakinder also brought out some goat curry, which was very nice.




I ordered the Pecan Butterscotch pie with vanilla ice cream


David ordered the raspberry sorbet.


David ordered the pineapple upside down cake sugar free (absolutely terrible).


Back in the cabin, we had a towel dinosaur.
