Mariner of the Seas Reside Weblog – Day 7 – Sea Day

Though it was a day at sea, my mother and I had a busy day!

We each have slept in day-after-day of this crusing, and at the moment was no totally different. Patty has been desirous to attempt breakfast in the principle eating room, so she hurried all the way down to deck three earlier than it closed at 9:30 a.m. I however went to the Windjammer as a result of I wanted to eat shortly.

Patty advised me she was very impressed with how briskly the service was in the principle eating room as a result of she arrived, ordered, and ate in solely 25 minutes. She began off with a bran muffin and a fruit plate. For the principle course, she bought Eggs Your Manner with sides of bacon and cheese grits. She was shocked by how large of a bowl the cheese grits have been. The meals was all superb, she stated. Patty loved being waited on and would do it once more even when she had restricted time to eat breakfast.

At 10 a.m., the group cruisers gathered within the convention room to listen to Matt file a podcast for his channel. He described what he did at every port and his total expertise on the group cruise to this point. After that, he answered a couple of cruise questions individuals emailed him. It was enjoyable to be part of his episode.

I had been eyeing the frappuccino drinks on the Cafe Promenade, so I ordered a caramel one to attempt. I didn’t know if there could be espresso in it so I wasn’t positive what to anticipate. It did have espresso in it, however it wasn’t too sturdy of a style so I used to be blissful about that.

Whereas I used to be getting my drink, the Veteran’s Gathering was happening. It was a particular occasion, and I may inform many felt the identical manner. 

Subsequent up on my agenda was the Women Pamper Celebration within the salon. I’ve been to this occasion a number of occasions on previous cruises as a result of I wish to really feel just a little pampered once in a while! The occasion was busy, as all of the seats have been taken when my mother and I arrived.

The staff sampled varied cleansers, toners, moisturizers, and so forth., and described to us easy methods to apply them to our face and neck. I’ve the identical previous skincare routine, so I loved switching it up and experimenting with new merchandise.

One of many merchandise they used was the sunglow bronzer, which I’ve been utilizing for not less than 10 years after I bought it on a earlier cruise. The staff utilized it to people who wished to attempt it, so Patty and I had that executed.

At 1 p.m., the group cruise had a personal ice skating occasion in Studio B. After signing a waiver and getting equipped, we have been in a position to hit the ice. I used to be very rusty at first and needed to get used to the skates earlier than I used to be snug to slowly maneuver myself across the rink.

Even Matt got here on the ice for a short time!

Love & Marriage was at 2 p.m., which I assumed was an odd time as a result of it’s often at evening throughout manufacturing showtime. Nonetheless, we attended the occasion with a strawberry daiquiri and lava circulation in hand.

This present is one in every of my favorites, so I used to be excited. I’ve seen the present so many occasions that I can predict nearly each query they ask the {couples}! The newlyweds gained this time round.

We had a while to spare earlier than afternoon trivia, so Patty and I relaxed on deck 4 and watched the waves. Deck 4 has develop into one in every of our favourite quiet spots on the Mariner.

Patty likes to stroll laps, and he or she stated she prefers strolling on deck 4 relatively than deck 12. Deck 12 is busy with sunbathers and group gatherings that prohibit her from a continuing stroll.

Deck 4 is much much less busy; even with out a strolling path, she will get exercise in. One other plus is that for not less than half of the time, she is within the shade versus within the solar on deck 12.

Patty and I had not been to basic data trivia but on this cruise, so we have been intrigued to see how we might do. We really didn’t do too dangerous (I assumed) and scored 9/20. We knew we didn’t win, so we left earlier than they introduced the winners (who bought an ideal rating).

Since we have been proper by the on line casino, I wished to check my luck. My household says I’m the fortunate one of many group, however that was not the case at the moment. I didn’t wager a lot, however I misplaced all of it and was left with a measly 0.24 cents. I left the on line casino with nothing to brag about, however I nonetheless had enjoyable.

By this time, we would have liked to prepare for dinner. Tonight was “costume your greatest” evening which is the equal of the previous formal evening. I discover it attention-grabbing how they modified the terminology, however I can see why since individuals could not need to dress to the nines for dinner. I might estimate that solely 25% of company wearing formal apparel whereas most of us have been enterprise informal.

Upon seating on the desk, you’re anticipated to scan a QR code and use your telephone to have a look at the dinner menu. My telephone wasn’t simply accessible, so I requested for a bodily menu which I appreciated. On this cruise, I noticed I miss getting the bodily menu each evening, however I perceive their reasoning to restrict germs.

I began with the roasted tomato soup whereas Patty bought the Asian-style pork tacos. The principle course was rooster sous-chef for me and tagliatelle pasta for Patty.

She advised me she missed having meat throughout her dinner, so she additionally later ordered the grilled lamb chops. I helped her end her pasta.

Dessert consisted of tres leches, crème brûlée and the apple blossom à la mode. They’ve the apple blossom each evening, however I simply needed to order it as a result of I understand how good it’s. It was a fantastic alternative!

By the point we completed dinner, it was already time for the 7 p.m. headliner present “Middle Stage.” I assumed it was simply the singers and dancers, however there was additionally a juggling & comic act within the center – The singers and dancers opened and closed the present. It was good that we bought to see quite a lot of leisure that everybody may get pleasure from.

Proper after the present, there was an 80’s occasion occurring within the Royal Promenade. Just like the 70’s disco inferno, there was music and dancing to all issues 80’s. Patty and I watched the present for a short time, then we went to the Bamboo Room to share a mojito. The mojito within the Bamboo Room is superb in my view.

I had a while earlier than the ten p.m. recreation present, so Patty and I went as much as the Solarium to chill out in one of many daybeds. These are all the time occupied throughout the day, so we have been blissful to lastly get pleasure from one tonight. We couldn’t even really feel that we have been shifting and it was peaceable to listen to the rhythm of the waves.

The sport present was Grownup Majority Guidelines. They’d an everyday Majority Guidelines earlier this cruise that I attended. The one tonight was a totally totally different model. It was so humorous; I believe I laughed probably the most I ever have throughout a recreation present.

Instantly after, there was grownup karaoke. I listened to a couple singers – some have been nice and others not a lot. I can’t decide although as a result of I can not sing myself!

Tomorrow we might be visiting one in every of Royal Caribbean’s personal islands, CocoCay.
