To wrap up the last 3 days of our Journey cruise, we were looking forward to 3 relaxing days at sea as we departed the Caribbean after leaving St. Maarten and headed to Maryland. The first day at sea Rob experienced his first ever bought of sea sickness. He stayed in bed most of the day and found some relief with the medication I got from him at the customer service desk on board.
This picture doesn’t do the waves justice. The waves continued to hit our window throughout the day.
The first day at sea was Throwback day with lots of fun activities. While Rob was sleeping I snuck upstairs for the Knobby Knees Contest.
Rob was feeling well enough that evening to go to the Captain’s Cocktail Party, which is another throwback event, that they no longer do. We were excited to get to do this again, since on our first few cruises. Free booze and free finger foods!
Entertainment by one of the duos we enjoyed in one of the lounges during the cruise (can’t remember the name).
They always introduce the staff on board during the Captain’s Cocktail Party.
Here I am enjoying my 3rd or 4th drink…
That evening was another formal dinner and since it was a throwback to 1987 day, they treated us to a Midnight Gala Buffet, which they quit doing awhile back. We walked through and took pictures, but didn’t stay to eat and then went back to the cabin to crash.
2nd Day At Sea
The next day we got up and enjoyed the day, since Rob was feeling better.
We ran into our table mates and watched them go down the slide several times before moving on.
The Hairy Chest Contest on Lido deck is always funny and entertaining.
Crew Connections: Q & A with the Marine staff, which is all the folks that keep the ship running like the captain and engineers.
That evening was lovely with another delicious dinner (and dessert) and a great show called ‘Heart of Soul.”
Froggy Towel animal met us back in the cabin. 🙂
3rd Day At Sea
The last day on board is always better sweet, but we still enjoyed several on board activities.
Towel Animal Folding fun and then something new we’d never send before was the Towel Animal Theater, which was a puppet show with towel animals.
We really enjoyed the Game Night show. Although, we were sad that it conflicted with our dinner, so we couldn’t stay for the entire show.
Chocolate Molten Cake – the dessert I get nearly every night.
Any guesses what this towel animal is?
Lots more pics here on flickr.
