In the 7-day Caribbean cruise that we took, we had 2 sea days. Port days are fun, because we get to explore new places; but sea days are not boring. With these gigantic ships, like the one we took for this cruise, the Norwegian Escape, there are plenty of things to do. There are bars and lounges with live music and stand up comedy, several dining options, a waterfront promenade, spa, shopping, etc, etc, etc. Too many to enumerate here.
The husband and I and the couple we cruise with (so far 4 since 2009) love the art auctions. We enjoy learning about contemporary artists like Peter Max and masters of art like Monet, Rembrandt, etc. Occasionally, we play bingo. Although our favorite thing to do is just chill with a cold drink in our hand.
This ship has a 3-story rope course where you can zipline over the water. The husband has been egging me to try things at least once in my lifetime. The rope course? I have done a zipline once in forest of Costa Rica and that was it. That day I did not want to carpe my diem, no matter what the husband said. Thankfully, only closed toed shoes are allowed, which saved me from doing it because I did not bring any closed toed shoes on a Caribbean cruise, wink, wink.
The timing for this cruise was perfect for Halloween party. I have packed our costumes just in case there's a party. I was not sure because I have not cruised during this time. As expected there was a huge party. Almost everyone came in costume. I was a little black kitty cat, nothing fancy. There was a late night party at the deck and a selection of the best costume. A family came as Old MacDonald and his farm animals. I believe they were the ones who won the costume contest.
The Baby was very popular. Everyone seemed to have photos with him. The husband and our buddy.
