Hey, hey everyone! I wasn’t sure if I’d get to post this early on, but here I am! Woohoo!
Right now it’s about 2:00 in the afternoon, and we’re taking a break from the close, hot, sun. SPF is a godsend, but I’ve still gotta take a break from the sun every once in a while. I’m so excited the husband said we could get the pay-as-you go wifi! It’s 75 cents a minute, so I’m utilizing Live Writer as much as I can!
This morning we woke up way too early. Especially for going to sleep around 3:00 a.m. Yep, this party girl rocked it until the weee hours of the night! haha I don’t know when the last time I saw this time was – at the ripe age of almost 25, I’m just not the 21 year old I used to be 😉 But it was a blast – fun was had all night.
Let me rewind to yesterday morning.
Around 11:00 yesterday morning, we made the walk from our hotel in Tampa over to the cruise ship. Goooood bye, Tampa…
Hellloooo cruise ship!
Naturally, we were all starving when we got there, and although lunch was open, apparently everyone else was starving too, and not a single table was open. So instead we started with a liquid lunch, obviously.
What? I got my fruit in, see?! 😀
The umbrella pile.
A couple fruity drinks later, and we were told our rooms were ready. I was really surprised at the rooms – I had no clue what to expect. But the rooms totally look like they should be on a boat (don’t know why I didn’t think of that…lol) and they’re awesome!
We hit up the night scene. We started out with a sit down dinner
For my entree, I ordered a vegetarian Indian dish that was amazing! It was some kind of channa masala, with either paneer or tofu, along with some delicious dippers:
Honestly, one of the best Indian dishes I’ve ever eaten!
When the waiter came around with the dessert menu, we passed, and got coffee instead:
We had to be troopers! And so we trooped:
This was at one of the clubs, called Medusa’s Lair. It was a pretty cool place, but us four were the only ones in the club. It was pretty weird, but cool to have the club to ourselves.
Today’s a whole day at sea, so we’ve been pretty relaxed all morning. So far, we’ve kicked it on the top deck:
Then we walked around to see what was going on around the ship. There’s seriously something going on every half hour. So much fun 😀
Finally, we realized we were hungry, so we hit up the lunch cafes.
Shane was on a mission to find a burger, and I had my eye on the salad bar. We were both successful:
And then next to the salad bar, was something much too interesting to pass up: pickled spaghetti squash with raisins and walnuts:
I was a little leery, but it ended up being amazing! I was pretty stuffed from my Hugh Jass salad, though, so I just had a couple bites. Until the husband brought this:
You know I can’t pass up key lime pie and strawberry short uhh mousse. Delish!
Check out this picture of a carved watermelon that was in the lunch cafe:
Doesn’t it look like a painting? So cool. I wanna learn how to do that haha.
Tonight’ll probably be lots of relaxing 😀 Actually, right now we’re passing hispanola (not that we can see it – everywhere ya look is deep blue sea) and we go to Grand Caymens tomorrow! Not sure I’ll be able to post tomorrow with all that excitement, but I have several awesome guest posts lined up for ya 😉
Hope everyone’s having a great Monday!
