    The Beach Bar, the perfect place to have a few Amstel Brights!!

    [​IMG]

    A couple of water views. The breakwaters keep the big waves away.....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The souvenir and water sports hut.....

    [​IMG]

    These are the extra cost sun beds which were available in the sun and with shade.....

    [​IMG]

    I just grabbed a free lounger in the back under a palm tree, and alternated between relaxing there, swimming, and the beach bar.

    Coming up next: Patti and Ryan's walking tour, more beach time, and sail away.

    Back out on the street.....

    [​IMG]

    There's the Monarch across the way. The pontoon bridge,(the proper name is the Queen Emma floating bridge), is open to let some boat traffic through, so they will have to wait until it closes again to cross.....

    We are back at the dock…..

    [​IMG]

    Preparing to head up the gangway, and back onto the Carnival Liberty…..

    [​IMG]

    Once back on board I made a beeline up to Guy’s Burger Joint for a late lunch, then went to the Versailles Pool bar for a “few” Coronas. When it got close to the 4pm sail time, I made my way back to the cabin, so I could watch our sail away from our not so “secret” deck.

    View from our not so “secret” vantage point…..

    [​IMG]

    The Curacao Coast Guard is standing by…..

    [​IMG]

    There’s the seaside cafe that Patti and Ryan were at earlier…..

    I have received a gift from the Players Club. I guess they are happy that I'm losing my shirt this cruise. Lol......

    Now it was time to head to the Piano Man Bar for the Diamond members cocktail party with the Captain. There are 15 Diamond members on the cruise this week, so Captain Giuseppe Giusa made sure to spend time talking to each and every one. Also there, was the Hotel Director Donato Becce, and other Senior Staff members. The party lasted about an hour, and there were plenty of drinks and appetizers. My bar waitress, Ieva, from the dining room was there, and she kept the drinks coming!

    Afterwards, we made our way to the EA Sports Bar, for some pre dinner drinks and watch the Yankee game.

    Soon it was time for dinner.....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ryan is ready for dinner.....

    [​IMG]

    Patti and Jamman.....

    It was another great dinner. I started off with the cod fish balls.....

    [​IMG]

    Ryan had the Canonelli.....

    [​IMG]

    And Patti had the crab cakes.....

    [​IMG]

    For my entree, I started off with the linguini and sausage.....

    [​IMG]

    Followed by an order of spareribs.....

    [​IMG]

    Patti had the salmon for her entree, and Ryan once again, had the chicken. We all had the s'mores parfait for dessert.

    After dinner, Ryan went to Club O2, Patti went to check emails, and do a little shopping. I went to do battle at the blackjack tables, and after a few hours I walked out with a hundred or so. Yippee!!!

    Back to the cabin for a good night's sleep. Here is tonight's towel animal....

    [​IMG]

    Good Night!

    Coming up next: Our 3rd relaxing sea day.
