I felt a bit sad, today was my father's 2nd anniversary of passing, I didn't want to mourn but wanted to celebrate but the day had a slightly morose feeling, at least for myself.
Today was our first official day at sea. When we woke up, I pulled the blinds and watched the vast expanse of the blue grey ocean before us, slightly rough, white peaks showing through. Spooning as you do, we lay in silence, contemplating the expanse of the ocean ad we watched the white peaks and the swell rise and fall...
Buffett Brekky... ok buffet not so bad for breakfast.. still ate way more than what I usually ate.. just cause it was there..tasted good, felt full...
I read that there were Free Mimosas and that word.. free.. always gets me in.. and free alcohol, well okay. I told everyone and dragged them all down to the Fun Shops. It was to look at the jewellery, a sales pitch which then got us a ticket to win some jewelry when we attended their shopping Experience. Basically a man dribbling on about some expensive collection that we were all bored
with. I did catch a "prize" .. a mini pen.. yay..🤔😂 and then we all got a FREE pendant.. and all that FREE cost us about 2 hours of our lives that we can never get back. Don't get sucked in...
Wanting to try the taco station for lunch, Kym and I ordered 3 soft tacos in the three fillings on offer.. small and tasty.
So much to do.. mini golf.. what else.. the wind strong so it gave everyone an advantage.. Nicki two holes in one but Kym consistently scored low and overall winner. We checked out the gym below, mainly cause I was concerned that they could see up my dress.. my knickers were nice... meh...
Headed back to our room for a bit
Empire silver service.. I ordered the fish.. nice. I have to say what I have been so impressed with is the easy way they cater for meals. I have an onion intolerance and not having to worry if the food had any onion which would make me end up looking 10 months preganant .. well I didn't have to.
Tonight was Caribbean/island night and although we didn't dress up for
dinner, I was wearing an Ariel mermaid dress and felt like I belonged... and I did the conga around the restaurant... I just had to...
Changing into our outfits... both pirates.. so pretty much stuff from our normal wardrobe.. Kym and I met up with Nicki and Curt in the Redfrog bar which we were already referring to as our "local".
Nicki wore an awesome pirate wench outfit and Curt a bandana and pirate patch.. we rawk.. 🤘
The band we saw was... um... okay. As Kym pointed out.. a bunch of waiters that they probably said to them " can play drums" and said yes were what made up the band. A fishbowl cocktail later meant that they sounded awesome to me and I danced to the macerana, the nut Bush and a few metal and non metal songs that my slightly inebriated self wanted to dance to and I did.. as a pirate..yarrrr
The ship had a 24/7 pizza place called 'Pirate Pizza' and of course dressed as pirates we wanted one.. only for the fact that was what is was called and Kym wanted a picture in front of the sign saying
'Pirate Pizza ' while eating a pizza dressed as a pirate.. I think he could be the new poster boy for it...
