Cruisin’ the Pacific

Today is a recovery day…I know, I know, I was on vacation and I shouldn’t be tired, but alas I am. We tried to take it easy on the cruise, to actually RELAX but there were so many things to do so you felt you really should take part in them…

You always got a little newspaper the night before so you could plot what you wanted to do the next day, here is a sample of some of the things happening on our ship daily.

First and foremost we always got COFFEE with really pretty and delicious danish and little cakes! Most important! Then we sat and people watched as we decided our day.

Unfortunately as at most resorts there were never enough lounge chairs so it was first come first serve so it was a free for all at the pools and decks. It is funny to see the shenanigans people pull to reserve their chairs, without supposedly reserving them. It’s not allowed. You really are supposed to be there at the chairs, yet people will still insist on leaving their things on the chairs then disappear to go gorge themselves at the “all you can eat” buffets and these people take that seriously. So the vultures circle the chairs and even talk to the attendants, looking for intervention, it’s too funny!

Back to the hourly happenings.
