We began our first sea day by hitting up the Blue Iguana Cantina for a quick breakfast burrito so we could make the cruise director’s morning show in the main lounge. It turned out to be a pretty funny show and we were happy we made the effort to go rather than just watch it on our TV. Not too long after the morning show, we found our way back to the Paris dining room for sea day brunch. It’s not every day you get to enjoy filet mignon and scrambled eggs, after all. We sat at a large round table with a couple from Azle which is just up the road from our town, one couple from Kansas, and another military couple originally from Texas but currently stationed in Alaska. Good conversation and very yummy food.
Sometime around 12:30, Nick decided to go down to the ship’s library to do some studying for a certification he’s trying to achieve, so changed my clothes and made my way up to the gym to walk on the treadmill for a little while. I did two miles and giggled silently at the two older ladies who jumped on the treadmills beside me, in their flip flops no less, and proceeded to walk 2 miles per hour for 10 minutes before they declared they had done enough.
Nick finished studying because he got sleepy, so he decided to take a nap….in the middle of the day….on a TUESDAY! Yay for vacation! I changed from my gym clothes into my swimsuit and headed out to the pool area to grab an empty lounge chair and sun for a little while. I was just in time to watch the Very Hairy Chest contest, yay for me. I spent about an hour out there, and then it was time for the cabin crawl. Somewhere during that time, I grabbed a Guy's Burger again. These burgers were going to be trouble, I can tell you already.
