Around 2:30pm we decided to head back to the ship. After saying goodbye to Jesus, we went to the entrance to catch a taxi. This was no problem at all, as there was a whole line of them waiting to take people back to their ships. 15 minutes later we were back at Puerta Maya…….



The Brilliance of the Seas on the left, and the Liberty of the Seas on the right…..



I went right back to the ship, but Patti did a little shopping. She took these shots alongthe way……

We decided that we would just eat at the Mermaid’s Grille tonight. Patti got this nice night time shot of the funnel…..



This was our dinner for tonight……



After eating, the two of us went to the casino to play blackjack. We did not do very well at all. We made our way to the Red Frog Pub to drown our sorrows before going to the 10pm comedy show starring Diane Ford. She was very good as usual.

Tonight’s show in the Taj Mahal was “Viva Variety” featuring the magic of Bobby Borgia. I told you that was the show for last night, but I was mistaken. Last night’s show was the Playlist Production of “88 Keys”. Sorry about that.

After the comedy show we decided to call it a night. This was tonight’s towel animal. We left him hanging there for the duration of the cruise……



We also got our Diamond Invitation…….



Coming up next: Our 2nd sea day, featuring the Diamond Luncheon and Galley Tour, along with dinner at David’s.

Wednesday, March 1st - Sea Day # 2.

Here are today’s Fun Times……









We slept in today so there will be no sunrise pictures. We decided that since the Diamond Luncheon is at 11:15am today, we would both skip breakfast. Patti would go to the 10:30am Bingo session while I hung out in the cabin and work on pictures.

As she made her way to the Taj Mahal, she passed the Atrium where a ballroom dancing class was taking place…..

After the Luncheon we made our way to the casino for the first slot tournament of the cruise. Utilizing our BOGO entries, we gave it our best shot but did not qualify for the finals.

At 3pm it was time for our 2nd session of LCR, and today we have another big crowd on hand……







Here, our friend Kris is hoping for a good roll of the dice……



I need a lucky roll to win, but of course I didn’t get it…….
