My poor, neglected Honeymoon report. It’s sad, isn’t it? Over six months since our honeymoon ended and I’m not even halfway through my report. But with all this extra time on my hands, I’m going to try to get this thing wrapped up!
This particular entry will be a short one, because Day Six on the ship was, finally, a sea day! This was a very port intensive itinerary and we really needed a rest. The morning was very lazy. We slept in quite late, then went up to the buffet for breakfast which we brought back to eat in bed (we were really exhausted).
That morning there was a kitchen showcase, where crew members were on hand to demonstrate their various skills involved with dining on the ship. We saw napkin folding, sushi making, and my favorite was the head pasty chef who decorated a cake and made roses out of fondant before our eyes. It was super impressive!
After the showcase we eventually made our way to the pool, and despite the very cold weather, it was packed! We found chairs next to our new friend Joann and I lounged around for a couple hours until we were hungry for lunch. After lunch at our favorite quick stop restaurant, Blue Lagoon, it was back to the room for nap time (HEY – we were on vacation!) until dinner in Windows. We basically asked for all the pasta on the menu. Also, I tried a sugar free peach tart and it was awful.
After dinner we got around to checking out the Karaoke in Henry’s Pub for the first time. I didn’t sing but had fun watching. And at some point, our new friend Beth and her husband Josh showed up, drunk from an earlier tequila tasting, and Beth became the entertainment for the evening. I shall say no more.
After Karaoke, I think we ended up in the casino for a little bit until heading back to our cabin. We came back to an eagle(?) towel animal.
Sea Days are great, but we were really looking forward to our day in Mykonos (first time in Greece for both of us) and Chef’s Table that evening!
