OK - checking the schedule.........if I do this I will pick my cabin this time around...............give me a day or two to think....I think it is doable!!!
Awoke to a partly cloudy day and fair seas this morning. I enjoyed a good nights sleep, but it was a bit rocky during the night. I had breakfast in the Monet dining room, my personal standard 1st morning carnival breakfast of Eggs Benedict, side of bacon & hash browns, tomato juice, and grapefruit which were very good. We walked around the ship and then played team trivia at noon in Vincent's lounge. It was French day in the 'Tastes of Nations' section, but I had lunch at Sur Mer with our friends. I had the Bouillabaisse and fish & chips. After lunch the Cruise Critic roll call group had a Meet & Greet in Vincent's lounge. It's great to put faces to online screen names. At 2:30 they had a new trivia game called Invisible Movie Trivia where they show scenes from movies, but the actors are invisible. It was different. The rest of the day was cabin time with a nice nap included. It is the first elegant evening and they no longer have a Captains cocktail reception with complementary drinks, but offer $1 off cocktails at the promenade deck bars. The Captain was available for photographs for a set time. The main production show Point and Click was the primary entertainment this evening. For the elegant night dinner I had the Pumpkin Soup, Stuffed Mushrooms and the Seafood entrée consisting of lobster and jumbo shrimp. The lobster was very good, but an alternative choice would be the Duck or Roast Beef. I had the Cherries Jubilee for desert. We took a stroll around the ship and there were a lot of activities and photo stations. Marc Ruben had two late night comedy shows. The platinum guest gift was left in the cabin and it is again the picture frame. Tonight we changed ships time to one hour forward. I suspect they have had problems getting people back on board in Key West if they don't match the local time.
