Day 10 – Hawaii Cruise – at sea day

Uneventful, but relaxing and fun. Had a good breakfast buffet and sat on deck with my computer while eating and people watching. We have clouds and it’s windy, but on a cruise, who cares? I’d love to swim more but there is so much chlorine in the water, it’s hard to survive. I did get some goggles, but just the picture of me in a bathing suit wearing goggles is a picture that not many want to see. Trust me.

I went to the casino for a little while but was lucky enough to get one that paid and paid and paid some more. It was so nice to spend an afternoon where I used the casino’s money and not my own. Did not win a car or a fortune, but it was fun. Met some interesting people as I sat there.

Formal dining tonight. Donna and I dressed up and went to dinner. Lovely. Our dinner partners tonight were from Nebraska, Washington state and Canada. Food was delicious, as always.

After dinner I got my camera and walked all over the ship taking pictures. Everyone was watching shows and doing other things so it was nice and peaceful. It was also horribly windy out on the upper decks. I wanted to get a picture of the huge lighted Christmas tree up on the top of the ship. I just had a little section of deck to go but the wind was so bad, I was afraid I’d get blown overboard. I was in my good clothes so definitely didn’t want that.

I came back to the room and spent the rest of the evening sitting out on the balcony. It was gorgeous.

Donna had gone to a show and said that the two couples next to her got into a fight and spilled a drink all over her arm. Today’s youth? No, two old men dressed up in their suits and tuxedos fighting over who was going to sit where. Sorry I missed THAT show.

Goodnight and on to day 11.

  2. Hi Sandra,
    Mi name is José, I’m Spanish, and my wife and I went one year ago to a cruise through Caribbean Sea aboard Princess Caribbean. We want to trip around Hawaii when I’m retired in a few years, maybe two years.
    I’ve just red all you have written about your trip and I’ve liked very much.
    I wish we met someone like you at our future trip.
    Apologize my bad English Language.

    • Hi Jose. I bet your Caribbean cruise was wonderful. That’s on my list of …. someday. I hope you get to go to Hawaii soon. It was all so wonderful. I thought it might be too many days at sea but it wasn’t at all.
      Your English was great.
