As you can read, it was a mostly successful day. The previous couple of days we lamented with others in the group that despite the ship having over 6,000 passengers, it didn’t feel crowded. In fact it felt more like a large outdoor hotel than a cruise ship. Some of that changed today, our first day at sea. With everyone on the same ship and no place else to go, things got a little crowded at the more popular activities. In the morning, we luckily found two deck chairs by a pool to work on our tanning and blonding. In the afternoon, Ryan attempted to go on the zip line and the flow rider, but the lines were too long. Ryan will try the flow rider again tomorrow when the lines are more reasonable.

The entire group had dinner at one of the many specialty restaurants on the ship, Giovanni’s Table, to officially celebrate Harry’s birthday. Fun, and wine, was had by all!

After dinner we went to the solarium to relax in the hot tub.

Tomorrow we make port in St. Thomas, where we will take an excursion to see the National Park of St. Johns.
