The sleeping beauties...
Today was our last consecutive sea day. I have never been happier to see dry land than I will be tomorrow. These sea days have been very laid back, but you can’t help but feel a tad claustrophobic after six days on a boat.
Unfortunately, today’s weather was cloudy and windy. We meant to take a video of the pools splashing around, but didn’t have the chance. Hardly anyone was on the top deck this morning, and of course no one was in the pools. It was still nice to sit in the Promenade Lounge and watch the waves from the oversized portholes. No matter how many days you spend at sea, you’re still amazed at how blue the water is every time you see it.
We were all awake by 9am today for a change. I haven’t napped all day shockingly. Sadly, I cannot say the same thing for my sister and mother. They both napped on Deck 10 while our room was being cleaned this morning. Later, they cuddled on the couch together while trying to watch the second Pirates of the Caribbean and slept. I think they also napped before dinner as well. Mom actually had her fourth nap after dinner before she was planning to go to the show.
We didn’t really eat that much either. (Apparently today was rather odd for us) We all had breakfast on our own, fruit and such at Topsiders. Maribeth had a hot dog for lunch and Mom ate something or other at Topsiders. Today from concierge we had assorted miniature cakes and a few mini muffins. The muffins were good, but the cakes weren’t very impressive. Connie and Kumi also brought by Mickey rice krispie treats.
Dinner tonight was the Prince and Princess themed menu. Looking at it, the food didn’t sound very good. However, we were all pleasantly surprised by the food we ordered. Apparently our waiters have to work all day tomorrow and they don’t even get to touch the land, so we are hoping that some shops in Tenerife might be open (even though it’s Sunday) so we can get them a present.
After dinner, I wandered around and read some of the things I’m supposed to be reading for my summer classes. Maribeth went to see Casino Royale. Her review is: “Good. High action.” Hope that helps you decide to see it or not. Mom tried to go and see Twice Charmed- the nightly show- but there were no seats to be had. She was terribly sad. She sat around on deck 5 to waste time while Ida cleaned.
Tomorrow we are unleashed on the Canary Islands. We will most certainly have many pictures and stories to share from our adventure. Thanks for reading!
