Med Cruise II: Last 2 Days at Sea

I’m grouping these last two days together as they were kind of a long big blur of a time – a good time, but it was really just the ship heading back from Kotor all the way to Barcelona, so occasionally you’d see some neat stuff from the ship, but mostly it was ways to combat boredom.  That usually involved drinking.  🙂

May 27, 2013 – Day 2 at Sea

So now it’s Day 12 – Day at Sea II, and it’s been very relaxing. Had a late start, got some breakfast, then went up top for a few hours on the Solstice Deck for some sun as Dave had said that’s where he’d be and it was rarely crowded. He was there, and for a while it wasn’t crowded, but it certainly did get that way. Had a few drinks and a burger for a snack then finally it’s now where I realized I need to type up the last few days before it gets too long to remember everything. We have reservations at Murano tonight and I am excited as to what we will have. Hopefully we’ll hang out with Dave some more and just have another great day tomorrow before docking in Barcelona the following.

This was also the evening when we got to see “Equinox: The Show” – in which we got to view what the entire showroom and stage was built for, as it is pretty ornate and you don’t know why until this show.  Think Cirque du Soleil but obviously not THAT insane.  But still, lots of cool little artistic acts, whether it’s dancing and singing or crazy feats of strength and acrobatics.  Pretty neat to be honest.

May 28, 2013 – Day 3 at Sea

Ruh roh, I’m now at the point where I stopped writing in my journal!  Well, time to fire up the ol’ memory banks and bug Larry to see if he remembered what we did that day!   I can report that the night before’s dinner at Murano was fabulous, and this time there was no mortifying comments likely overheard by their subjects nor a food reaction.  It was just wonderful.

The next day though was a bit of a comedown from the highs of yesterday, as instead of the wonderful sun, it was kind of dreary.  Glad we did a pool day yesterday!  We ended up just kind of wandering the boat for the first part, getting some coffee, looking at lifeboats…yeah, it was pretty slow.  I think we did also manage to get some more gambling in (that would be me – I think I spent a LOT of time at the blackjack table) before we had a last dinner with Dave and then it was time to pack and get ready for the next chapter of the trip the next day: Barcelona!!!!

Med Cruise II: Our Much-Needed First Day at Sea

May 21, 2013 – 1st Day at Sea, sailing from Naples to Dubrovnik

I was a bit hungover at the beginning of the day as yeah, I had a fuckton of alcohol the night before. So we took it a bit slow at first. I didn’t get up till around 10am, and wasn’t ready till just before 11, so we missed the James Bond trivia contest. After getting some breakfast, I ended up going back to bed to take a nap while Larry enjoyed some other trivia contests. Finally around 2 or 3, I was able to emerge and have some lunch like food. We ended up getting to do some more trivia, drink some coffee, play some Blackjack (I was doing okay but then got destroyed by a run of cards for the dealer that were brutal).

It was the first formal night and so we got to wear our suits for the second time this evening. Actually got a table for two right by the window which was very nice. After that, we caught the show where the production cast did a bunch of random songs. Enjoyable, and the guys are pretty hot especially when they take their shirts off. 🙂 We then hung out with Doug & Harriet a bit at the coffee bar, before heading down to the casino. The blackjack table was packed and of course, the craps table wasn’t, so we played there a little. I actually had a decent roll my first time out, but after that, it was pretty much dismal. OH well.
