Some people say they will NEVER cruise because they couldn’t handle the idea of being on the sea all the time. On your typical 7 day Caribbean cruise, there are usually 2 sea days and the rest through the night sailing and waking up in a new port the next morning. This is why David & I love cruising. It’s the adventure and excitement of a new port every day! And we don’t even mind the two days at sea, especially if the waters are calm and once you get your sea legs!
So…This Western Cruise is as follows:
Mar 1 Embark Tampa, Mar 2- Day at Sea, Mar 3- Honduras, Mar 4- Belize, Mar 5- Costa Maya, Mexico, Mar 6- Cozumel, Mexico, Mar 7- At Sea, Mar 8 Disembark Tampa
So what do we do on sea days? Well… we wake up and step out on our balcony and breathe in the fresh sea air and enjoy a coffee. And then we make our way to Deck 11 for a Buffet breakfast and eat it outside on the back of the ship getting some morning sun. And then after breakfast we go for a stroll around the ship to check out all the fun places. On a new ship it’s easy to get lost when you’re finding your way around. There is so much to do. Morning yoga and Zumba and dance classes and language lessons. Art auctions and card games, the Casino if you’re in to that… There’s shopping and eating and information sessions and port information seminars…and eating… And then there ‘s swimming and tanning and hot tub sitting and eating and nap time because you’re sooooo exhausted and then eating. Haha lots of eating!!! Then there’s afternoon coffee and back to the room to sit on the balcony and shower time and dress for dinner. Dinner can be casual or fancy. Gotta get some pics of us and the sun setting. Then it’s game time…lets’s make a deal or jeopardy, and then…it’s Showtime!!! Music and dance, jugglers, comedians..you name it, they’ve got it. After the show a stroll up to the out door Cafe for some snackies. ( pizza and wings, a tea and something sweet) If you aren’t too tired there’s discos and pool parties or just quiet chill in’ a nice little corner. I didn’t even get in to the gym or spa or library or … Well you get the picture. There’s just SO much to do!!!
Here are some pics…in no certain order…
And at the end of the day… which is fairly early for us because of all the sun, food and fresh air ( we are exhausted) we snuggle in our lovely queen bed, get rocked to sleep by the ocean waves and have lovely dreams of waking up in an exotic location in the Caribbean because that was the day at sea and tomorrow is a Port day!! Ahhh….
