Right next door to Circle “C” was the Thrill Theater. We had planned to check this out, but we never did…..
The screen on the box office displays the shows for each day in rotation…..
Here is the paper version of the entire Thrill Theater schedule…..
Right next door is the Deck 4 Fun Hub. We chose the Premium Plan as we wanted to see how fast their best plan really was. Don’t know if it was worth it, as the speed was just a tad faster than dial up. I wonder how slow the Value Plan was?
It was now 12:30pm and time for the first blackjack tournament of the cruise. After going to the casino cage and getting my BOGO tournament entries, I sat down at the table to see if I would be able to qualify for the finals…..
We’re up to hand 3 out of 7 hands, so it’s time to make my move…..
Going into the 7th and final hand, I now have 6,000 in chips. From experience, I know that this total would be on the “bubble” as to whether or not I will qualify for the final table, so what the heck, I go all in for the last hand…..
My 20 beats the dealers 18, so I wind up with 12,000 in chips…..
Right now I’m at the top of the leader board with a total that should qualify for the final table. We’ll check back later and see if it holds up…..
We ate our lunch inside at the Ocean Plaza. Afterwards, Patti wanted to purchase a coupon book at the shopping kiosk by the Red Frog Pub, so she took a few more pictures along the way. Here are some more of the Red Frog Pub…..
After we all went we had not done so well, and would have gotten about $10 back. We decided to just keep on playing until we hit something big, or ran out of money. Of course, we ran out of money, but a great time was had by all. Patti took home some hardware for tying for the best individual pull. Way to go babe!!
Now it was time for the slot tournament. I am going to sit this one out, but Patti and Ryan were going to give it a shot…..
Here I am outside of the Liquid Lounge. Patti and Ryan were both in the slot tournament finals, so she would join me at the party afterwards.
I regret that I didn’t get any pictures at the Diamond Party, as I had great conversations with Captain Marino, many of the ship’s officers, and with Matt Mitcham the CD. What a nice young man, and I made sure to congratulate him for being named the CD of the Carnival Vista. There were plenty of snacks, and the drinks were flowing freely. Meanwhile, Ryan and Patti were participating in the slot tournament finals…..
Unfortunately, neither Patti nor Ryan would finish in the money. Oh well, better luck next time!
After the Diamond Party, Patti and I had a few drinks at the Red Frog Pub, and even tried the Grouper fingers, which were very good.
Soon it was time to get ready for, and head to the first elegant night dinner. Here we are at dinner…..
Here is the American Feast menu…..
Again I was lax at taking the food porn pictures. It WILL get better, I promise. I started off with a shrimp cocktail, and the Italian wedding soup, while Patti started off with the spaghetti carbonara…..
