1/14/07 Day at Sea

Thank you so much to everyone who has been stopping by to check out our vacation blog. I promise I will post one every few days so you can all catch up on what we were up to on our cruise. After a looonnnnggggggggg break (sorry, we have been busy chopping wood and cleaning up our house), I will be posting again. So, without further ado, here is day #2 of our trip. Enjoy!!!!

(Oh yeah, check out the blog below - I finally posted some pics from the cruise).

Today was a very relaxing day. Nothing too remarkable. We woke up at about 8:00am and waited for our breakfast in bed to be delivered. We ate cereal, juice and Shawn had some rolls with butter. We let the food settle and then headed up to the gym. Shawn hopped onto the bike and I started out on the elliptical machine. Once our reservation time for the treadmills came around, I jumped at the chance, however, two women wanted to work out together who did not have reservations. I gave up my time slot so they were able to workout together. I got back onto the elliptical machine and finished my cardio workout. After the cardio we lifted weights a bit and then went back to our room to shower and relax. By the time we were done with our showers it was lunch time. We went up to the buffet area to see what was being offered, but decided on pizza and hamburgers instead of the buffet. The pizza on the ship is pretty good. It is served at a place called "Prego's" which is located right next to the grill that serves hot dogs, hamburgers and cheeseburgers.

We finished lunch and headed back up to the room for a nap. We woke pretty late since we were still recovering from our full day of traveling. After waking up close to dinner time we decided that we would take a little bit of a tour around the ship to see what was going on. We got sick of touring pretty quickly and decided it was about time for dinner. Tonight was the formal night, but we are not ones to dress up in 'formal' clothing since it's a bit restricting and uncomfortable. So, we once again headed up to the buffet area. I don't know what it is but I am not one for a buffet. I do, however, like the fact that there is cut fruit and a salad bar always available.

After dinner we headed to a comedy show. I must say, this comedian was much better than the first one we saw at the start of the cruise. This guy was pretty funny, high energy, and all around entertaining. In fact, he was not just a comedian, he was also a magician. A good show if you ask me; Shawn and I enjoyed ourselves. After the comedy show we came back to the room to regroup and figure out what was going on next. We noticed on the ship schedule that there was another show in the theater at 10:30pm and waited for that to begin. The second show was of singer and dancers reenacting different musicals from Greece, and Fame to Mary Poppins. It was fairly entertaining. After the show we headed off to the room to relax and watch a bit of TV before retiring for the night. Tomorrow we are arriving in Ocho Rios which should be a good time. We have nothing planned, and decided we are simply going to wing it when we get off the boat. It should prove to be a good time.
