We woke up and looked out past our balcony and saw nothing but ocean. Wha?? We were supposed to be docked at Coco Cay! I called Guest Services and they told me that because of bad weather we couldn’t dock at Coco Cay so we were making our way to Nassau instead. SAD FACE. I was SO looking forward to Coco Cay. Oh well.
We dressed and went up to the Windjammer buffet for breakfast at our usual table. It was raining so our choices of activities were limited to inside ones. We picked up a new Cruise Compass (newsletter that tells you all the activities) and decided to go to a music trivia contest. Well that was quiet and boring. We lasted about 5 minutes then we were out of there. According to the Compass they were having Battle of the Sexes in the Centrum soon so we went there to get some seats. We were early so we sat through a towel animal folding demo first. It was actually kind of cute. Battle of the Sexes was basically like Family Feud but men against women. It featured questions like “Name something you find in a garage”. Morgan represented the women for the last question, which was “Name a classic movie”. Morgan said “Titanic”. It was number 5. Then the guy she was up against named a movie higher up than 5 on the list so they got control. The boys and the girls all gathered to come up with answers, but then the boys swept the board! Poor Momo lost for all the women on the ship! The women had been on a 5 week winning streak! At the elevator bank a man said so Momo, “Thanks for losing!”
We went up to Windjammer for lunch and when we were scouting out tables we noticed a young man with his napkin on his plate, he appeared finished with his lunch. He also looked familiar to me. I got closer and noticed it was Chika from Battle of the Sexes! Coincidentally, that’s him in the top picture. So we said hello and could we have his table? Right then Momo and Sara appeared and I said “It’s Chika!” They boxed him in so he just sat down again and spent lunch with us! (shout out! Holla!)
When lunch was over we went back to the cabin for our daily nap. It was still raining by the way. By now we’d docked at Nassau. Momo and Sara decided to go with Chika and some of his friends to Señor Frogs. I’m too old for that nonsense so Gigi and I took a nap! We woke up and were getting dressed for dinner while enjoying some wine when the girls returned. I’d show you a picture from the ridiculousness that took place once the girls came back, but I’d get in serious trouble. Let’s just say that the cocktail foreshadowing I told you about in the first post was coming to fruition! Gigi and I were enjoying some wine but not nearly as much as Sara and Morgan enjoyed Señor Frog’s cocktails!
Dinner that night was formal night so we all got dressed up in our fanciest outfits and did our hair and makeup all glittery. Back in the My Fair Lady dining room, I chose the chilled banana soup, shrimp cocktail, and artichoke crepes for dinner. They were really good. For dessert I had the double strawberry cheesecake.
Once dinner was over we went to the Orpheum Theatre to see the comedian. If you’re on deck 5 you have to walk through the smokey (cough, cough) casino to get to the theatre. But on deck 6 it’s smooth sailing. The comedian was Carl Banks. He was pretty funny! After the comedy show we were pretty tired so we headed to bed. Must have been the rainy, overcast weather making us so sleepy!
Oh, I want to note that this is the first cruise in YEARS where I didn’t bring my DSLR camera. I took all my pictures on my phone. Made for a lot less to carry!
Next up…Nassau day!
