Sfter the drill, we spent a few minutes in the casino playing shots (I played the penny ones).
Before we knew it, it was time for dinner. The dining room was way better than the one on the Norwegian cruise! Norwegian had cafeteria style dining with specialt restaurants that cost more money. The food was similar to what you would get at a Country Buffet. On Royal Caribbean, the dining was assigned time & seating in a beautiful room that was a total of three deck levels. A cello was being played for mood music and we were given menus. I had some prime rib, whcih was one of the best I've eaten...very little fat and cook exactly like I wanted it.
When we were through with dinner. we stopped back in the casino to play slots a bit more while Karyn had her cigarette. After blowing through $20, I convinced Karyn to quit, too, and go to the hot tub.
The hot tubs extend out over the sides of the ship, so you can look down and see the ocean below. A few minutes after we entered the hot tub, some teens joined us. We thought "ut oh," but they were really nice kids (two high school seniors and one college freshman). We stayed there while the sun set.
Karyn was worn out and opted to read a few pages before literally passing out in her bed. I head back down to the promanade to get some sun glasses (mine had gotten scratched pretty bad) and water sox (I couldn't find mine when I was packing and it wasn't until I was on the ship that I remembered that they were in the trunk of my car).
Can't believe it's 11:30pm already...guess I'll get a shower and head to bed myself.
