Blonde Bombshell: Third Sea Day

Ahoy there! It is Friday aboard the massive vessel and it is our last sea day before we return to Port Everglades tomorrow morning. This morning I did something I haven’t done since before I left for this vacation: SLEPT IN. It was amazing. You should try it, really. I went to WindJammer to get some breakfast and then I ran down the stairs to Deck 6 to workout for a bit. On my return from the gym, I decided to get a Cruise Compass from the Promenade and while I was there, I discovered a gathering of people in the center waiting for the cake decorating event hosted by our cruise director, Richard Spacey featuring our Head Chef, Hotel Director, and Captain of the ship, Capt. Tryme. That was hysterical. They decorated a Black Forest Cake. The captain poured half a bottle of cherry liquore over the cake, soaking each layer. Richard Spacey said that anyone sampling his cake shouldn’t operate heavy machinery for at least three days.

After the cake decorating, I met Sean and we headed up to the Boardwalk to register for the Walk for Wishes. Royal Caribbean is a proud sponsor for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. All week the cruise staff held different charitable events (art auctions, raffles, and donations) where 100% of the proceeds go directly to the foundation. I am proud to say I walked a mile and made a small donation for the Make-A-Wish foundation. After the walk, I met up with the rest of my party and got some lunch. If you are considering going on this cruise, you MUST MUST MUST try the ham and cheese on a croissant from the Promenade Cafe. It was the best I have ever had. Heaven in my mouth.

After lunch, I went to the Focus Photo gallery to look at all the professional photos taken during the cruise. We ended up buying a photo book and buying some single photos to frame later. After spending (more like wasting) over an hour there deciding which to buy and which to put into the book, I went back to the room to shower and get ready. I put on nice clothes and met the rest of my party. They said they were going to try and lay out by the pool, so I ran back to the room and changed my clothes again. This was the first time since Nassau that it was actually nice enough to lay out. But that didn’t last long—no it was overcast and it was drawing closer to the time we reserved to see the ice show, Frozen in Time. The performance brought to life the works of Hans Christian Andersen. In the middle of the performance, they brought out a sand artist.

Immediately following the show, needed to start getting ready for dinner. There was a Farewell Surprise in the Royal Promenade inbetween the two dinner seatings. Nearly all the staff and crew got dressed up and took a bow on the bridge during the Farewell Celebration. The International skaters we had just seen earlier were there and one of the male skaters got down on one knee while on the bridge and proposed to one of the female skaters. She was in complete shock! I felt priviledged to be apart of that special moment in their lives.

Off to the last supper—I ordered Spinach dip with tortilla chips to start andĀ Mahi Mahi and Shrimp. I really enjoyed it. Our wait staff sang a farewell song to us at the end of the night and then we were off into the night! Following dinner, we had a Comedy Show to attend at the On-Air Comedy Club, Deck 4 near Studio B. The comedian was HYSTERICAL. He was a black entertainer. The first thing he said when he got on stage was “I feel like a raisin in a box of Frosted Flakes….oh wait–there’s another…That makes 2 raisinsĀ  There’s always two scoops, theres always two scoops” He made joke about the size of the shower. He said something to the effect that “god forbid you drop your soap….you have to bend down to get it and your ass is in the middle of the hallway in order to reach it.” Richard Spacey also commented on the size of the shower during the Love and Marriage Game Show and he said that its like the deposit slip container at the bank.

After the comedy show, I headed to Boleros for my drink and some dancing. I met some cool people there and we stayed up until the skyline was nearly visible. The morning staff bid me good morning as I walked through the Promenade—I must have given them the look of all looks because while they were all cheery and well-rested, I had yet to go to bed. I had an hour before I needed to be up, so I ran back to the room, showered and got in bed for a blink of an eye before my alarm sounded.

Stay tuned!
