Crazy Cruise III... day 8 at sea...

Dinner last night was a hit. Started off with a gooey, cheesy onion soup followed by a Dungeness crab and shrimp cake that was so good you ate it in small bites and chewed it slowly. Main course was a 20oz. Porterhouse, medium rare, with mushrooms sauteed in garlic and butter; asparagus, and a loaded baked potato (Is you're mouth watering?). Washed it down with a couple Heinekens.
A little later I went to the casino and had some fun then went to my cabin around 2am.

Today we are at sea. Sailing to Labadee, Haiti; our final stop on this wonderful vacation.
Labadee is a resort that is owned by the cruise line. Kinda like Coco Cay in the Bahamas. You got your snorkeling, jet skis, parasailing, waterslide, a 2000 foot long zipline, gravity rollercoaster... you get the idea.
So what does one do when they are at sea? It looks like most people sit out at the pool. As I'm looking over the pool area and the crush of humanity(there isn't a lounge chair to be had), I keep getting a picture of the seals that take over the beaches of Patagonia. Sounds the same, too. Although I'm from South Florida, I'm not a big sun worshipper, so I'm gonna find something to do inside. I was just watching a sale of women's handbags marked down 75% on the Promenade and I wouldn't go near there with a helmet and pads. I think they're playing trivia up in the Schooner Bar. Casino's open but I'm not In the mood.

Time for a late lunch... see ya.

1. When I'm on a cruise, the days at sea are my favorites.

No rushing to get to the touristy spots at the port-of-call. No schlepping on and off the ship, no schedule, no nothing. Just do what you want.

I love it...

2. I do too...

Cruising can be exhausting. The days at sea let you regroup and recharge.
