Caribbean: First Sea Day

Sunday, October 24, 2021

Our usual sea day routine – Coffee from the coffee bar and then breakfast at the Sea Day Brunch. I had a regular breakfast of eggs and bacon and Chuck had the steak and eggs special. Breakfast in the dining room can be hit or miss but today the service was quick and the food was hot. Enjoyed conversation at the table with 4 other people – one couple from Michigan and two friends from South Carolina. Just before we left, Percival, our waiter from the night before, sang another ballad.

I spent the majority of the day at the pool reading and people watching. It was a partly cloudy day and I was surprised at the suntan that I got. Chuck spent time between the casino and the pool. We had a light lunch at the Lido.

Tonight, was elegant night so we dressed up. I was surprised to see how many women were wearing long gowns and men in suits or tuxedos as I haven’t seen people dress that way on a Caribbean cruise in a long time. Lots of women in sparkly cocktail dresses too. There were others, like us, in resort wear.

We went to the Alchemy Bar for a pre-dinner cocktail. Chuck loves the Cucumber Sunrise and I really like the Forty is the New Twenty. This bar is always crowded.

We each chose the lobster for our main course. Sometimes it is tough and chewy but tonight it was very sweet. The waiter wanted to give Chuck another one but he declined. The portions have been just right – not too much, not too little. We skipped dessert again.

We spent the rest of the evening dancing in the Ocean View Lobby area and going to see the other comedian in the Comedy Club. We liked his routine much better than the first comic.

The towel animal tonight is a puppy.
