We woke up early today (at 7) because on sea days it’s much harder to snag a good chair by the pool. I’m super fair so I need one in the shade. We went up to breakfast at Cabana’s then scored 2 good chairs at Quiet Cove. We read and I may have dozed off for a little while. It was really cool and windy. The ship was rocking and so was the pool! It was cool enough out that they passed out blankets again to those of us silly enough to be up on deck.
We woke up and got back into swim suits and went back to Quiet Cove. We read some more, did the hot tub, and we were going to swim but the wind was really kicking so I backed out. CSP was up for it though! Poor guy was out there all alone! But it was freezing! I was fine in the hot tub but as soon as my dripping wet self hit that cold wind I was done with the water sports for the day!
But CSP was loving it! So I wrapped up in towels and blankets and read while he went back and forth from the pool to the hot tub. We stayed out there until almost 7pm! Then it was time for showers and getting dressed for dinner.
Dinner tonight was at Lumiere’s. For his appetizer CSP chose the oysters Rockefeller and I chose the shrimp. We both had the Wild Mushroom Soup. Tonight was Lobster night so CSP was all kinds of excited to get his lobster tail. I ordered the pork tenderloin with polenta and mushrooms. CSP got another Mickey bar for dessert and I went with the Trio of creme brulee, apple pie, and cheesecake.
Back to our room and we were locked out again! This time we were let in to our room within 10 minutes and by the time we woke up the next day our lock was fixed again. We got to bed early tonight because tomorrow is Castaway Cay! There’s lots to do so we have to be up early! But before we go…a tour of our room: Stateroom 7556. Note we have a red Cruising with Mickey bag as our temporary Fish Extender. That’s all thanks to the McC’s! We started with zero door magnets and ended up with a TON because of our fabulous FE friends! There’s tons of storage! We didn’t even use all the drawers and shelves! Pay no attention to all of our bags and CSP’s stuff. I told you he didn’t unpack! Drove me crazy! But note the full size sofa (which converts to a bed) and above it is a bunk bed. Across from the sofa and coffee table is the fabulous vanity and stool. The TV is on a swivel so you can view it from anywhere in the room. There’s a safe in every room. It’s big enough to hold my big camera and our wallets and CSP’s headphones. The bathroom is split. This one has a sink, a bunch of shelves, and the toilet. This one has a sink and the tub/shower. We had a stateroom with verandah. I love all the hidden Mickeys!
