Cruising on a Friday afternoon
We did it. We took the plunge - just Noah and me - no cell phones, no computers, no thing to do, no where to go. We booked a three day cruise to the Carribean. A little honeymoon for two.
Friday, at 3:00 p.m., we checked in with Royal Carribean Cruise Lines and boarded the Majesty of the Sea. She set sail at 5:00 p.m. from the Port of Miami for destination Coco Cay (private island owned by RCCL) and Nassau, Bahamas.
We settled into our corner room on the Tween Floor (the 6th floor on this cruise is a half floor between the Shopping 5th floor and the 7th floor). We had an outside cabin with a porthole with a cubby. We skipped early dining and explored the ship instead.
We checked out the pools and the rock climbing wall. And the gym. And the kids' lounge. And the basketball courts. And found a pingpong table. We had a match and met a friend. Noah and Anthony from North Carolina (who happens to be a 8 year old twin) enjoyed a round or two.
So many food options while cruising. Besides the formal dining rooms, a buffet in the Windjammer Lounge, wraps and paninis at the Deli, and a complete Johnny Rockets on the ship, there is also 24 hour room service. We found some wonderful salad options and veggie choices and sat in the lounge watching the sun go down into the ocean. We then caught an entertainment preview show and enjoyed the comedy of Phil Tag. This guy was hysterical.
A little past our bedtime, I convinced Noah to take me to the Compass Lounge for some Karaoke. What a blast!!! I love Karaoke. Singing from the heart and just having fun. Tee hee!!! Enjoy my rendition of Joy to the World.
