mid week highlights

In a Starbucks at Cocoa Beach, we have the day to hang out and we have beat the sun out so are browsing the shops and the net :)

Having a fun, fun time.

Made some notes for myself over the past couple of days:
"Cruise day one and two
We had a rocky departure. The littles were upset and crying and didn’t want us to go. This was pretty stressful and it took awhile for us to relax and begin enjoying the cruise.
The first day we walked around the ship, checked out the buffets and met our dinner companions. We also went to the welcome aboard show and took a dance class. The entertainment was really good and the food was yummy. My favorite part though was looking out the window in our cabin, I woke up in the night a couple of times and looked out at the moon on the water and the white wake under our window, it was very peaceful and magnificent.
We woke up late on day 2 and took our time getting ready and getting breakfast. We watched an ice sculptor carving on deck and sat around the pool with our books. We went to the meet the captain hour and then to the formal dinner.
One thing I have noticed is that there are more large vacationers here eating more food than you would have ever thought possible. It is crazy.
We also went to the evening show, which was incredible. The costumes and sets and dancing and music were awesome and fun, Broadway style.

Day three
We slept in, late. It was lovely. Some of the highlights of the day have been going to the cooking demonstration where I got some recipes I really want to try, a marriage show starring some of the guests who were very funny. Sitting on the deck enjoying the sun, reading a book, glancing up to gaze at the water from time to time. Big B took a golf lesson. We had dinner and went to a ventriloquist and I think I have enjoyed this day even more than the past two. It’s been relaxing and fun. We’ve spent quite time reading and thinking, time laughing and time eating. It took some time to get into the cruise groove but I am here now. "

The food has been yummy and plentiful. We're eating lots of ice cream and fruit and you can snack, or dine pretty much 24/7
Love the towel animals, this elephant is my fav so far!

We went to a cooking demo that was just like being at the food network :)

Today we'll enjoy the sun and sand of Florida, tonight we're having a fancy schmancy 8 course dinner and then tomorrow we'll be in the Bahamas swimming with the dolphins!!!

So temporarily jealous :). We went on a cruise several years ago and it was so much fun. It sounds like you are not with a group? We went with a group of friends and had a great time- other than the rough sea, which meant the pools were drained everytime we were out of port. But the food- not great for a normal diet, fun though :) We loved it- and would love to go again- but our good friends keep inviting us to Hawaii instead (bummer;0 I know-lol.)

So glad you are enjoying your cruise! I have never been on one, but I have heard it is all about the food. Our tourists who took the Alaskan cruises always complained they got off the boat 10lbs heavier.

I'm so glad you are having such a great time. It is so fun, eh ; ) And you are so right about all the food--it's the thing I can never get over.

One of my favorite things is to just look at out at the water. It is so peaceful.

Continue to have a GREAT time. (The little ones will be fine)
