So far the cruise has been up and down. Letâ€™s start with the good . . . .
The ship is the sister ship to the first ship I ever cruised on with the BF five years ago. That is kinda fun, it has a nostalgic feel and all to it. The dÃ©cor is nice and there are a lot less old people than on last years cruise. The club on this ship is like that on the first and has the best layout. Itâ€™s a two floor club with a dance floor on the bottom and an area upstairs to sit and watch. The music is far better than last years as is the crowd in the club.
The BF was delirious to see that in the daily listings they have a meeting for â€œThe Friends of Dorothy.â€ If you donâ€™t know what this means, Google it. We went the first night but it was in a noisy jazz bar. It was weird and awkward, not a good place to mingle or talk. People showed up, but it seemed nobody wanted to talk. Others not in the know just came to sit and listen to the music or wait for the dining room to open. They way out numbered everyone else by far, so that hindered communication too. They have since moved it elsewhere, but last night nobody came. I may scoot in and see if anyone is there tonight.
The Annoying . . . .
The internet runs like a slug. Itâ€™s terrible. You have to try connecting to sites five times before it works. I think Iâ€™ve used half the minutes of the block I bought and itâ€™s only been one day. Most of it was trying to get to sites and my email.
The Bad . . . .
The first real day of the cruise and I was hit with a huge migraine. This of course put me into a foul mood. The rest of the day was spent . . . . working on my soap pages.
The second day it was my BFâ€™s turn to be sick as a dog. He has not gotten out of bed. He says it was probably something he ate yesterday. A bartender just said “Maybe it was the lobster, “not even knowing that is what he ate! Oops! I guess the lobster was rancid. I keep saying he has the Norwalk virus. He tells me not to say that. I once again spent most of the day doing work.
Iâ€™ve decided I just have too much work to do not to work. Iâ€™ve essentially given up on time management. Terrible I know. I spent the past two days basically working and taking little breaks to walk around and do stuff on the ship. I donâ€™t see this changing for the rest of the trip.
Tomorrow we go to Acapulco. We are going to see the cliff divers tomorrow night. Hopefully the BF will be well enough to get up and do stuff. Hopefully the weather will be better too. Its been cold and cloudy so far, which sucks.
Anyways, here are a few photos Iâ€™ve taken. Enjoy!
