    Here I am taking my 5 spins. The total money won from my spins was exactly ZERO!!

    When all was said and done, everyone broke exactly even. Afterwards, I went to visit with my new best friend Winston at the Red Frog Rum Bar, while Patti attended the Caribbean Shopping Show…..

    Of course they promoted a shopping party and raffle at 2pm…..

    At 1:15pm we attended the Cruise Critic Meet & Mingle Party which was held in the Butterflies Lounge. We actually got an invitation in our cabin……

    [​IMG]

    Here is the sign at the door to Butterflies Lounge…..

    [​IMG]

    There was a pretty good turnout of over 100 people…….

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They provided coffee, tea, juice, and snacks. Our CD Steve was the only crew member to show up. He took the time to answer any questions though he had to host another event in about 15 minutes. I’ve heard that some of these Q & A sessions have turned into b***h sessions, but our group treated him kindly!

    Afterwards, Patti went to the 2pm Bingo session, while I went back to the cabin to rest before our next event. We got two plates of these chocolate covered strawberries and treats. They looked like rejects from the Coffee Bar, but of course we ate some of them! Lol.

    [​IMG]

    At 3:30pm we met in the Mermaids Grille near the Pizza Pirate for our first session of LCR. We will be getting together every sea day. Today we have a pretty big turnout…..

    We were not the winners today. We made our way to the deli for a sandwich. Patti then went back to the cabin, while I went to the casino to play blackjack. I didn’t do so well today. No problem, we have a long way to go!
    Tonight is our first Cruise Elegant Night. Here is our table set up, and tonight’s American Feast Menu…..

    Here are Patti and I at the first Cruise Elegant Night Dinner…..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Patti has chosen the spaghetti Carbonara, and the Caesars salad for her starters…..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I have chosen shrimp cocktail and the Italian wedding soup as my starters…..

    [​IMG]

    We both had the broiled Maine lobster tails with shrimp as our mains. I confess, I had two of them! Lol.

    Here is the American Feast Dessert Menu…..

    [​IMG]

    Patti chose to have the fruit plate again, while I ordered the banana split from the kid’s menu…..

    [​IMG]

    Anyone that has cruised with Ken Byrne knows that he has a great voice. Tonight he sings “The Way You Look Tonight”…..

    [​IMG]

    The waiters dance and sing to “Celebration”......

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Tonight’s show in the Taj Mahal was “Viva Variety” featuring the magic of Bobby Borgia. We chose to go to the Punchliner Comedy Club, which is located in the Butterflies Lounge instead…..

    Because the Comedy Club Manager JC was a little under the weather tonight, CD Steve had to pull double duty and open the show. He did a great job, and it was unusual and fun to see a CD be so risqué!

    [​IMG]

    The comedian we watched tonight was Mark Hawkins, and he was very good…..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After the show we went back to the cabin, where we found tonight’s turndown service along with our Diamond/Platinum gifts…..

    [​IMG]

    The Diamond/Platinum gift for this cruise was the nightlight…..

    [​IMG]

    Coming up next: Cozumel and our day at Mr. Sancho’s, where I found out that yes, Jesus loves me!!!

    Patti has decided to skip breakfast today. Instead she will gather up some of our dirty clothes and send them out to be washed. I head over to the Blue Iguana Cantina and get myself a breakfast burrito, then head over to the Red Frog Rum Bar to eat it. Nothing like a burrito and Thirsty Frog Red for breakfast in the morning!!!

    It is going to be a busy day in Cozumel today. In addition to the Carnival Pride, Carnival Fantasy, and Norwegian Jade being in port today, the Brilliance of the Seas, Liberty of the Seas, and the Norwegian Dawn will also be joining us. Passengers from the Pride have already begun heading ashore…..

    We have an all-inclusive package at Mr. Sancho’s booked for today. We knew that there would be six ships in port today, so we booked ahead of time on Mr. Sancho’s website. They limit the amount of all-inclusive guests, so we didn’t want to be shut out. Patti and I leave the ship…..

    When I last left you, we had just arrived at Mr. Sancho’s. We picked a nice thatch covered table for eating, and placed two loungers under a palm tree for lounging. Here we are enjoying our first drinks of the day…..

    Here are the All-Inclusive menus……..

    I want to introduce you to our new best friend Jesus, (pronounced Hey-Seuss).

    [​IMG]

    This man took excellent care of us all day. Anytime we wanted anything to drink or eat he was there. Of course, we took really good care of him at the end of the day. So much so, that when we told him we might be back in October, he said to make sure that we requested him. So I guess you can say that yes, Jesus loves me, and Patti too!! Lol.
