At sea

Ah....this is my kind of day. We had breakfast on the verandah - as we have all cruise. Then...nothing particular to do. While Jill and Dee went to the casino in the morning, I relaxed in the Neptune Lounge while the cabin stewards made up our cabin.

We joined a Mariners Group for an early lunch. They gave out a few frequent cruiser awards. In general, this is the type of thing we would usually skip - and I think we'll skip it next time.

We went because we only had certif for two of us for lunch at the Pinnacle Grill and Dee could go with us to this lunch. Mistake. The steak was very good but wasn't as appreciated by Jill or me. We should have gone to the pinnacle and paid for Dee. Brett said the Pinnacle had great appetizers - and that probably would have been enough for us.

Relaxed and quietly wasted away most of the day. Jill and Dee went back the casino a couple more times. I watched Matrix. We had dinner at the Pinnacle courtesy of the cruise line to make up for the in-room dining issues early in the cruise. We all had a fantastic meal.

Brett felt that his filet mignon was the best steak he has ever had - I may have to agree with him. They allowed Brett two entrees and he had lobster in addition to land-&-sea. Desserts were fabulous - chocolate souffle, creme brulee, baked Alaska.

Tomorrow we dock on Sicily. Hopefully, our excursion won't be overly difficult.
