Travel diary Day 5 – January 27, 2015
Whew.. Cozumel was a great trip, but exhausting. Glad to have a day at sea to relax before docking in Freeport! Relax is a relative term though…not much relaxing going on since there was SO much to do on the ship! It was hard to fit everything in.
After a late breakfast, we decided to go to the Love & Marriage show in the theater. Remember the Newlywed Game? About the same concept. What a hoot! Of course, Leigh, the Cruise Director, had to ask the question “Where is the strangest place you’ve made whoopie? (for those of you who never watched The Newlywed Game – yes, that means sex.. lol) The newlyweds admitted to everyone there, including BOTH sets of their parents, to doing it at the spa (NOT the one on the ship, thank goodness), the old married couple said the coal room of the husband’s job site… and then there were Frank & Lois… in their late 70’s/early 80’s but only married 15 years. Lois proudly told everyone – in the cemetery! Leigh was flabbergasted. And Frank elaborated saying that they “had a favorite tombstone” LOL! Leigh couldn’t look at the two of them for the rest of the game without laughing and shaking his head.
I managed to introduce myself to Frank & Lois before the show, telling them how cute they were, dancing together during karaoke. And they were! Lois just loved me for telling them that, and said she just had to give me a hug.
Another event on the ship was the ice show. An ice show, on a cruise ship? Well…why not? It was actually pretty good too!
And finally… there was The Quest. As with the Cozumel Bar Hop, there were rules. Well ONE rule. What happens at the Quest, STAYS at the Quest. Some people don’t follow this rule of course, because there are quite a few videos posted on YouTube about The Quest. (“The Quest” on Royal Caribbean (ADULTS ONLY Game Show)
I managed to snap a few photos as well…and I even participated in a few parts of it. I won’t tell you which parts.. 😉
Of course, even with all this activity, I managed to capture a few sunsets from the ship.
We’ll be docking in Freeport, Bahamas tomorrow morning. Time for some sleep!
