Looking at Jack’s Shack as we sail away…..



Leaving Grand Turk and the Carnival Glory behind…..





Patti is relaxing on the balcony…..



We hung out for a little while, and feeling hungry, we went up to the deli for a bite to eat. I had the arugula, pepper, and mozzarella on a cibatta roll, washing it down with a Corona. Sooooo good!!!

Afterwards, we decided to head to the spa. We made our way to the Tepidarium, which is our favorite room in the spa…..



The Tepidarium fountain…..

After a couple hours at the spa, it was time for our dinner. Here are Patti and I at tonight's dinner.....





Tonight Patti tried the Red Blend Gifft Wine. She didn't care for it that much.....



We both started off with the shrimp cocktail, Of course I had two orders.....

I also had an order of spring rolls.....



Patti also had the fruit cocktail.....



We both had the seafood Newberg. Patti doesn't care for the mussels, so I was happy to take them.....



For dessert, we both had the coconut cake, along with our favorite ice creams.....



Tonight, the dining room danced to Hot, Hot, Hot.....



After dinner Patti went to check emails, and then went back to the cabin. I played blackjack until 11:30 or so, winning a little bit. Here is tonight's towel animal.....




Coming up next: Paradise on earth, Half Moon Cay!!

It's Half Moon Cay Day!!!!



We were up at 6:30am. We would be arriving at Half Moon Cay around 8:30. Looking outside, we could see, once again, that the seas were very smooth....



Finally, I was able to capture a sunrise!!







Around 7:15, we made our way up to the Lido for breakfast. Here's a view of the aft omelet station.....

The Continental Breakfast Station.....





Today's breakfast. I had a little of everything.....



This is the beverage station up on Deck10.....



After breakfast we made our way back to the cabin to get our beach bags, and we ran into our room stewards, Inyoman and Kadek.....



Those passengers that had rented the Oasis, Villas, or cabanas, were told to meet in the El Morocco Lounge on Deck 5 aft at 8:15am. I still can't understand why they have us meet there, as it's the farthest lounge from the tender loading platform, which is on Deck 0 forward. We are too be on the first tender over to HMC. At about 8:45 we are told that they are ready for us, so we make that almost 10 minute trek down to the tender. Once there, we are told that there will be a short delay, as the Captain needs to reposition the ship due to the wind and waves. Finally we board the tender for our short ride over to HMC. Malcolm the CD was coordinating the tender loading process from the loading platform. As we pulled away he wished us a great day.....

This is the information Hut where you check in before heading to your villa or cabana. From here you can board a tram that will take you to your cabana.....



I always choose to walk along the beach. I tell Patti I will meet her at our cabana, as I know that she will walk around taking pictures before the masses come. Fort San Salvador (the main entrance).....



The first aid station.....



The fountain in the courtyard.....



Looking back towards the tender landing area.....



This is the seating area next to the Rumrunner Bar.....

I'm just floating around enjoying the water....



Patti will now take you on a quick tour of our cabana. This is our shower.....



These are our floats. We take them off the railing so that people aren't tempted to "borrow" them.....



This is the misting fan. Our snorkel gear can be seen on the floor.....



You can see that we have two comfy loungers, and in the background you can see four chairs around the table.....



This AC unit keeps us nice and cool.....

Patti and I love to share our cabana with friends. At the informal roll call meeting, we invited the roll call members to drop by and hang out for a while. Looks like a roll call meeting is starting to form out in the water.....



Looks like our snacks have arrived.....
