How do you spend your sea days?

Recommended Posts

Breakfast in MDR, reading in the sun, a little day drinking, maybe do an onboard activity, maybe a little nap.

Breakfast, Second Breakfast, Elevenses, Luncheon, Afternoon Tea, Dinner, Supper

 

Jokes (name the source) 🙂  but generally relaxing, people watching, cocktails, reading, snacking, enjoying a lack of a schedule (though I break the no schedule rule for trivia).

First thing we do when getting aboard is ask the room attendant to do our room first thing in the morning.

 

Up at 6.  I take a stroll on the almost empty decks. Pickup coffee and croissants. Return to room where DH is waking. Have coffee on balcony with DH. 

 

Morning ablutions. Head up to OVC. Pick up OJ with amoretto. Pickup breakfast. Eat outside if nice. Have more coffee. Head back to room to brush teeth and grab book for DH, yarn project for me. 

 

Back through OVC for another OJ or coffee and additive. 

 

Over to sky lounge to enjoy beverage and hobby. 

 

Around 9:30, cafe Al Biaco for “special coffee” and a small snack. 

Meander around the ship for a bit. Find a bar, have a drink, chat with whoever is around. Take a “traveller” back to room. Enjoy the balcony. 

 

Around noon-ish head to OVC, mast grill and spa cafe. Enjoy lunch with a glass of vino. Meander around ship. Find a bar, order a drink. Chat with people. Head back to room. Nap and/or hobbies on balcony. 

 

Around 2 go to cafe Al Biaco for iced coffees or teas and a snack.  Meander around, find bar, chat with people. Well you get the idea...

5 pm off the World Class Bar for pre-dinner drink. Early supper in MDR. Skip dessert, go to show. After show cafe Al Biaco for special de-caf coffee and dessert. 

Pickup a liqueur and head back to room for night cap on balcony. 

Repeat next day. Ahhhh, I love cruises with premium drink package.

I have to say that on land I barely drink.  On sea, I am always drinking.  It takes a week for my BAC to go back to normal!

We will work out, maybe morning or afternoon.  Then spend our day at the Solarium or the Observation Lounge.  Lunch might be at the Spa cafe that we enjoyed last time, or at Sushi on 5.

I’ve not done this before, but after reading all the Corona threads on this forum, for my upcoming cruise out of Rome, I’m going to go passenger to passenger with a thermometer and check people’s temp, and then check their blood/oxygen level.........just to check if it’s safe and I can then sit in that lounge and relax.

 

When I’m not doing that, I’ll be playing cards with people we’ve met, going to the lectures and just enjoying the ship. But I’ll also take time to just watch the ship cut through the sea, nothing quite like that experience and you can’t get that feeling anywhere else.

That brings up an old memory! We did a Wine Tasting cruise in San Fran Bay years ago and every morning, we’d be docked at a marina and a bus would take us into Napa or Sonoma for wine tastings and we’d start at 8ish. By 9 we were really into the tastings!

 

We’d then get back aboard and a wine expert would give us more lectures and more wine as the ship (well, boat really, only 100 of us) cruised the Bay. This was 5 Nights.

 

When we got home, I get up and start to get ready for work and sit for breakfast, and turn to my wife and say ‘Where’s the wine??’....she gave me ‘the look’ and said “It Ends Now!”. And I responded with.....”Yes Dear”.

I’ll be carrying a Gin and Tonic with me. Ooops, I hope I remember to bring the ‘right end of the body’ themometer!

SOOOO looking forward to my sea days (only 2 😞) on our upcoming Alaska cruise!   

 

Morning walk around the track top-side, breakfast on the balcony, second breakfast outside the OVC, bloody mary-fueled trivia or other morning activities, spend a little time in the solarium, Aspen coffee drink either top-side looking at glaciers or in Cafe al Bacio, attending Brent Nixon presentations, post-day-drinking nap on the balcony, then enjoy dinner and the evening activities!

 

95 days til we leave!!!!
