Our Cruise

leave a comment »

We are back from our cruise to Cozumel. The Splendour of the Seas is a beautiful ship.  We had a great time. Danny and I got to League City Wednesday evening. We got to spend the night with my sis. We had a great supper with Donna and Mike.
Day 1 We got up the next day and we were on the Splendour by noon. We ate lunch and saw our stateroom. We had a drink and then played some ping pong. We met my cruise critics buddies at 3:00 at the pool bar. It was really cool. We had some drinks and listened to the band. Before we knew it, it was muster time. After muster, we ran into an old high school friend, Laura, her sister Jenny, her mom and son. What a hoot. The ship left the pier by 5:00. We had our first dinner at 6:00. By the time we finished dinner, the casino was open. We stayed in the casino until about 10:30.  Danny was very tired so we turned in early.
Day 2 – It was a glorious day at sea. We got up early and went for a long walk on the top deck of the ship. It has a walking/jogging lane! We walked 4 laps. It was quite windy but who cares. What a view! We went to breakfast in the King and I dining room. It was nice of course. After breakfast, we went back up and walked some more. After our walk went to the room and cleaned up and then we went to the casino. (bad, bad place). In the afternoon we went to poolside and watched the men’s belly flop contest and men’s sexy legs contest. It was hilarious. We had some of the ship’s special beer.  It was ok. We had a light lunch in the dining room and sat with Mrs Shupp(Laura and Jenny’s mom). We ate some yummy beer battered shrimp on a caesar salad. Then we rested for a bit. It was formal night in the the dining room and we needed to get ready! We took some pix and had a wonderful dinner. Our wait staff was excellent. Our table mates were couples from different parts of Texas–Houston, Texas City and Wimberly. We had some good conversation. We changed to comfie clothes after dinner and went back to the bad, bad place. Danny sat at a hold em and black jack table while I donated my money to the slot machines. We turned in about 12:30-1:00.
Day 3-We slept in because we were docked at Cozumel and we hadn’t planned an excursion. We had breakfast on the ship and then got ready to go exploring the town. It was a really warm and sunny day. We went to a vacation presentation at Royal Holiday Hotel. It was a very pretty place by the beach. We went shopping after the presentation. We picked up a few gifts and then got back on the ship. It was time to get ready for dinner. We had another great dinner and went to the show at 9:00. Then we watched the love and marriage game-it was so funny. It was like the newlywed game. Then it was back to the bad, bad place. There was a late buffet and salsa dancing by the pool. We danced our cumbia! We didn’t get to bed until after 1:00.
Day 4-Day at sea-I decided to relax on the deck while Danny went to the Casino. I had enough of that place. Had a very relaxing day until it got very windy and choppy. Breakfast was in the Windjammer and lunch was in the solarium. Decided to go pack our things because the luggage needed to be in the hallway by late evening and we had plans-2 shows and the quest! We had another great dinner after suffering from a little sea sickness- dramamine works! We enjoyed our shows and hit the casino it about 1:00. Danny sat at the black jack table until after 2:00.
Day 5- We’re docked in Galveston-we can’t drag ourselves out of bed until 9:00. We were out of the ship and in our car by 9:30. Everything went very smoothly this cruise. Can’t wait til January!
