Mixology and formal night…. Maybe not a good idea! Part 2 On our last cruise Joh, Nate, my sister and I had booked a martini tasting and again it was right before dinner on formal night. I did not over indulge as I discovered I was not a huge fan of martinis except for the fruity or chocolate ones. There were a lot more of the “other” ones that I did not finish but my sister was more than willing to help me out. I think she “helped” out a lot of people at our table. Well we practically had to roll her out. She did make it to dinner and you can’t even tell in the pics that she was loaded. Now I was not NEAR as bad off as she was after this mixology class but I was definitely VERY happy. I liked all the drinks! I got ready for dinner and helped the boys get ready. Evan showed up just 10 minutes before we had to leave and threw on his suit complaining the whole time. I was a little worried because I’m a bit on the clumsy side and I’m not very good with heals AND being a bit tipsy. Thankfully nothing embarrassing happened. I’m sorry to disappoint… my clumsiness always makes for a good story. I can’t tell you too much about dinner as I don’t remember much… we were at Enchanted Garden that much I know. Anyway here are a few pics from formal night. My handsome boys. Doesn’t Evan look impressed! A sleepy little Logan Gary teaching the boys how to tie a Windsor knot while Anna finds it quite boring. Luke and Daniel Cassie and Sian Here we are with most of the girls. Evan took off after dinner (of course!) so I was upset that I wasn’t going to be able to get a nice family pic while everyone was all dressed up and decided that I could at least get a nice mother daughter pic. While we were in line Jen and Bobbie were walking by and stopped to talk so I said we should get a pic with the ladies. Well we just kept collecting friends as they came by. While the photographers were posing us ladies the Captain came over and was looking on smiling and I could kick myself for not asking him to join us in the pic. I’m bummed though that we were missing Wendy and Sian. Evan did show up later while we were still in the lobby and I couldn’t believe my eyes but he was still wearing his suit! So I was able to get this. On to the show! This night it was Aladin and it was fantastic! I really enjoyed this show a lot. After the show the adult entertainment was a hypnotist which I thought would be intriguing. Nate was not feeling the best and decided he would stay back with the kids and he assured me he was fine. (I get a little paranoid about his health because he always downplays his symptoms.) I went to the show and gave him strict orders to text me if he felt any worse. I met up with the gang and we went to the show. Ricky Kalmon, the hypnotist gathered his volunteers and then invited the audience to try and “go under” as well. Joh said to me “I’m going to do it.” So I thought what the heck I’m going to try as well. I guess I did hold back a bit as I was praying that I wouldn’t make a total fool of myself and not be aware of it. So once he had everyone on stage under he invited everyone who attempted to go under in the audience to stand up so I did….all by myself. I mean other people in the audience did stand up but not Joh! He asked if anyone who was standing if their feet felt hot and if they did to come up and he would shake their hand which would immediately cool them down. I did not feel the heat which was fine with me because they were added to the volunteers. There were a few obvious fakers but some I thought might have been truly under. I don’t know... I’m not convinced. It was definitely entertaining I can say that much! So that was the end of the first day at sea and I can tell you I was pretty tired. I think I was asleep by midnight. Next up…. Grand Caymen!
