    Good night

    November 12, North Atlantic Ocean ⋅ ☀️ 81 °F

    Long day. Good day.
    Dinner was different. Neither the appetizer nor the dessert were up to snuff. I sent the lobster bisque back, but I did manage to eat a very ordinary creme brulee. I took a picture of it to send to Josh. The entree, however, was to die for. It was beef tenderloinand it melted on your mouth.
    Nothing going on after dinner. Going to have an early night for a change.

    2nd Day

    November 12 on the Bahamas ⋅ ☀️ 77 °F

    Getting to bed after midnight is becoming a thing. Guess I will just have to work on catching up on my sleep all day.
    Took the tour of the galley. Pretty impressive, but I'm not sure I would have done it for full price, $48. Bibi, our dining section's supervisor, got us in for $33. They crack 30,000 eggs a day! And only 2 people do it!? Each head chef (by floor I believe) has a budget of $80,000 per day, and he will have to explain himself if he exceeds it.
    Checked out the gym. I did OK for an old guy. I can still max out the back machine.
    Jordan arranged for us all to have formal pictures taken. This tied in with the formal dining night.
    Debbie's already looking to book our next cruise, probably Australia & New Zealand.

    Bedtime

    November 12, North Atlantic Ocean ⋅ ⛅ 77 °F

    Been a good but tiring day.
    After I got back from the island I wandered the boat. I checked out the gym (awesome facility), and strolled about the 15th deck where all the pools, slides, games, etc. are.
    After dinner we watched the Seahawk game. Couldn't ask for a better ending to the day weigh their victory over the previously undefeated 49ers.Read more

    First Day @ Coco Cay

    November 11 on the Bahamas ⋅ ☀️ 75 °F

    Coffee? Where oh where can i find coffee? Help!!
    Success.
    Off to Coco Cay...
    Had a great time. Weather was perfect.
    I was surprised the ocean wasn't warmer. It wasn't cold, but it definitely wasn't warm.
    I enjoyed the company and the conversation. All we did was sit around in the cabana and the get wet, either in the ocean or the bar pool.Read more

    On Board

    November 10 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 75 °F

    Totally different set up than Carnival. The boat is huge!
    Room is fairly nice.
    Only lost Momma Ed once so far.
    Wow, 2 drinks and I was ready for a nap. I've become a light weight.
    Great dinner followed by watching Cowboy game on the large screens.

  • Day4

    Waiting

    November 9 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    Saturday:
    Spending the night at the Holliday Inn Express by the airport. Washing our train clothes is the thrill of the day.
    Jordan & call will be joining us early early in the morning.
    Walked to McDonald's for dinner. Debbie is definitely of the wagon for this trip.
    The rest of the family made it to Daytona Beach where they are watching Alabama lose to LSU. Yay!
    Sunday:
    Wow! It was nice to sleep in real beds. But, I do miss the ambiance of the train (has anyone ever said that before?).
    Jordan and Zak have joined us as we will all travel together to the boat.
