It' a sea day today. These are the days that bring out the best and the worst of my fellow passengers. And because some are in their final 2 days before disembarking in Port Everglades, they can get especially cranky! I actually enjoy sea days for many reasons. I get to try out all the different things the ship has to offer, but the main reason is it's a great opportunity to study people and try to figure out their "story". There's this one woman, for instance, I've seen her around the ship alot. I remember her from the airport. She may even have been on our flight from Montreal. She's tall, blonde and lithe and I usually see her by herself, although she didn't arrive on the ship alone. She has rather prominent cheeks. No, I don't mean cheek "bones". Her cheeks are akin to Alvin and his brother's. She participated in "the" Zumba class. She disappeared early on. Sometime AFTER Mrs. Crazy swanned out, but before I made my escape. I'm sure she recognizes me when we meet, and I'm sure that she TRIES to smile...but alas, too much botox prevents me from noticing any friendly gesture. This woman has had WORK done...and when I see her at the breakfast buffet, I'm certain she's trying her best to make that work last. This morning we traveled on the elevator together...she was alone...again. I made a comment about it being time to eat...again. She replied that she really only wanted coffee. Likely story...I saw her a short while later carrying a plate of something and a tub of yogurt...but no coffee.
I spent the morning pool side and then for lunch, tried out Alfredo's, the pizzeria, and then Gelatos for a banana split
The Fuss Budget was slightly elevated today...I'd say around 35%. You see, for one of the newer ships in the fleet, there seems to be very little on the daily entertainment schedule that interests me. So imagine my frustration when there are 2 things on that I want to take in. Shouldn't be a real problem. One starts at 8:15 in the Princess Theatre
For a three hour tour, a three hour tour
