A cruise is called a floating resort, which is a perfect description. It's a small city in the middle of an ocean or a sea or a river. There are plenty of things to do and sea. On sea days (or travel days) where you are on the ship 24 hours, one is presented with a ton of things to do and enjoy. There are board games, sports activities, gym, casino, art, library, etcetera, etcetera.
People volunteer for parlor games. This is the ladies turn to dance to the beat of a funky sound.
It's the men's turn.
Who could finish a bottle of beer the fastest in one minute.
Upon arrival and on the last sea day, there usually is a bbq set up in the pool area.
Others like me choose to read and lay under the sun.
I may have mentioned in the past that there had been a major change in the serving size of food they serve on the cruise from the first time that we cruised nearly 10 years ago. Now not only do they serve smaller portion (a lot of the food used to just be wasted, left on the plate), but there is more thought in the nutritional value of the dishes nowadays, but that doesn't mean the flavor is no longer there.
Every cruise features a chocolate buffet once during the length of the cruise. On this night, usually the penultimate day, you best not eat anything at all if you want to enjoy a variety of offerings at the all-chocolate buffet.
There were a few chocolate carvings scattered throughout the room.
After all that was said and done and amid all the choices of chocolates, this was my dish. The eyes were exhausted from looking that it affected the stomach's desire to eat.
I always look forward to the towel animal that changes every single day.
And I never fail to go way up and look down the atrium.
OUR WORLD TUESDAY.
