This past week has been a busy one of getting caught up at work, at home and getting back to my normal routine. My mindset is not necessarily still on the cruise but on relaxation. So my house is not cleaned and I am not completely caught up around the house but by staying in a relaxed mood I have accomplished plenty more; enjoying a brisk autumn morning with a cup of tea, lunch with friends, a visit to someone long gone but through her precious granddaughter I have the privilege to know, and a relaxing Sunday afternoon of watching movies. These are only a few of the things that have filled my days since I have been back. So although I have not been productive but I have been enjoying that relaxed feeling that comes from a good vacation.
Day 2 and 7 took us out to sea. We don’t gamble but we did get to one of the shows and enjoyed piano music in the main atrium lounge. Our fun days at sea mainly consisted of beautiful walks on the top deck enjoying the view. It was also spent dozing off on the lido deck with the sun shining down on us and sea air being swept over us.
The pictures show our first relaxing day on vacation. The first night was formal night, so we enjoyed a delicious dinner with fun dinner companions and wonderful waiters who not only serve the food but offer great entertainment! Before heading back the cabin we enjoyed the music from the different lounges as we strolled around the main lobby.
These pictures show our view from our cabin and our walks. I will post pictures of the cruise ship on day 7, since day 7 was much like day 2. Two days of doing whatever we wanted to do with no time schedule – that is the making of a memorable vacation.
