Happy Birthday celebration!!!!
if you have a chance will check out the protein drinks at Vitality cafe and let us know if they use whey protein or plant based protein? And if they are included in the drink package. Thank you.  


I believe that they aren’t included when protein powder is added. We plan on getting some smoothies later so might know more then 🙂

She had the Veggie Burger and really liked it.

And I had a Chili Cheese Dog. So good. 
 

Now we are off to see Hairspray. Last night e we were supposed to see Hiro but the boat was rocking pretty good and they had to reschedule it for later in the week. 
 

Had a Pina Colada as well in the morning.

If you happen to be walking on the Boardwalk on deck 6, can you take a look inside Playmakers and see if the new CruiseSAT feature onboard is showing ALL NFL games today?  Thanks.

 

We were in Playmakers on Nov 10 and they had 4 NFL games showing at the same time.  Fun time with lots of action and lots of different fan bases in the same place.

Good stuff so far. Hopefully make it on an Oasis class soon. My travel buddy (younger brother) decided he liked cruising so much that he booked a journey with the US Navy. 

 

Enjoy your trip!

Thanks for your live review.  We will be on this same itinerary in 111 days on Symphony. Also doing the Scenic Railway and after a short taxi tour with Thenford tours I hope we can squeeze it all in.  If you see a photo sale flyer please post it someone on a previous cruise mentioned one 10 photos for $50.  Have a Happy belated Birthday and a wonderful cruise.

A few things before I post dinner. So when we returned to our cabin after watching Hairspray (which was great, even my sister who is not a musicals fan liked it), there was two bottles of champagne and two plates of chocolate covered strawberries for us., We had ordered one champagne and strawberries which we got latter in the day on Day 1. So I guess they gave us extra to make up for it, don’t know. Then when we returned after dinner there was another champagne and strawberries. Crazy amount of champagne. We are going to have to get some fresh juice and bring it back for mimosas. 

 

Casino - We have make nightly visits to the Casino and a very cool feature of it is that for the slot machines, you don’t need cash, just your SeaPass card. You can just tap the machine to log into your account for earning points and then select to transfer credits to your account from your room. And no additional fee or anything is charged. Very nice and convenient. And last night I won $360!! So I immediately cashed that out 🙂

 

Here is Main Dining Room info. Delicious and very nice area. My sister tried out the Vegan menu and it was a little weird and hit or miss.

I had the Lobster Bisque. (It was formal night). My sister had zucchini fritters from the Vegan Menu as well as a Tomato Gazpacho soup both she said were good.

For my main I wanted to go lighter and healthier so I choose the Salmon.

My sister order Crunchy Tofu Tacos from the Vegan Menu and this is where it got a little weird. The below pic is what they called in the menu as Crunchy Tofu Tacos but we couldn’t figure out how it was tacos. B27345FB-D7CC-4392-87C3-826E6F0CF0A6.thumb.jpeg.972af3770fbf8baf0307c079a86146ee.jpeg

 

Super weird. There is tofu, like a ginger dipping sauce that your get with Chinese food, sliced pears, tortilla chips in a crunchy bowl. Note really sure how that is tacos but on the bright side, she did say that the tofu was really good.

Cheesecake for dessert. I had this on our last one and it was just as good as I remember. My sister had Creme Brûlée.

Came back to the room to get ready for Formal Night and found a cute towel animal 🙂

Saw the Piano man in one of the elevators on the other side. Very cool.

Stayed up for the Majority Rules Game Show which was funny, so I had some Seafood Salad which is really good from Sorentos. Today we are going to try some pizza for a snack so looking forward to that. 

 

After the game show we visited the Casino again for slots and after about 2 minutes I won $360 🙂

Here we have lined up the one bottle of champagne that we paid for and the 3 free ones that we were given yesterday. For sure need to be getting some juice to drink these with.

They had a $10 accessories sale today so I got a beach bag 🙂

Now we are off to Cafe Promenade for some good Latte and Mocha then Park Cafe for breakfast. Plan to then try the Solarium Bistro for lunch (I’m not certain how many vegetarian items they have there as we haven’t ever been to it, just the Solarium area and not the bistro, but we will walk through and see what they’ve got. 

 

And then the big test for dinner tonight. Wonderland. We are looking forward to trying this tonight and being adventurous for food. Also interested to see what kind of accommodations that they can make for a vegetarian. So we will see 🙂

 

In between we will be drinking (of course) and eating some snacks here and there. Our big thing is playing games so have been finding tables and playing card games and such here and there. And there are two sessions of bingo today so we will be doing both of those. And then in the evening we have 1977.

I am wondering if you could post some pictures of the casino so I can see what I might want to play on our cruise 🙂

 

Thanks

Congrats on the win. A few years ago I won the Win a Cruise on the machine do they have those?

How are the straws I think I'll bring some.

You can take the bottles with you to breakfast.  We did that on Empress of the Seas and the Windjammer staff happily brought us larger glasses with OJ for mimosas.

Kind of confused...why would it be cheaper with the drink package and why is it listed like that?

Even $12 for the drink it’s covered in the package. Now drinks served in special souvenir glasses are extra.C9BABBA9-8D92-4BB0-AD31-703CBB93007A.thumb.jpeg.b3f5db93d67991764a7db5417288d056.jpeg

I assume they consider the pineapple itself extra.
