at sea

Posted by Hippo Bean at 11:49 PM
Oh the familiar ship! And the easy joy of cruising. You get up in the morning, go upstairs to the buffet court to have all you can eat and drink breakfast, then the next big problem is to figure out what to do with the rest of the day. Should the Hippo lounge on the aft deck, or should she go to the indoor Calipso's pool at midship? Should she have her massage at the Lotus Spa before or after Line Dancing? Should she jog around the ship on open decks for some exercise or should she just laze and watch the movie in the Movies Under the Stars on the Sun deck? Or maybe she should sample the Caipirinha in the Explorer's bar and watch the Tango on the Fiesta deck. Or just shop at the ship stores. Then the next big decision is whether or not to dine at the restaurant (and which one?) or do buffet. It depends on whether she feels like dressing smart or not. Then after dinner, what? Show at the Princess Theater or at the Vista Lounge? Or just Disco with the kids in the Skywalker Nightclub? Hm, maybe this isnt as easy as it seems. Too many decisions! Well, as it turned out, she did none of this. She played Mah Jon (and lost poorly) instead and took a nap in the afternoon after her massage (oh, and she skip Line Dancing). And had a nice dinner at the Portofino restaurant, followed by a musical in the Princess Theater, and a midnight snack on the Horizon Terrace on the aft deck, watching the waves as the Star Princess sailed on the Atlantic to her next fabulous destination - the Falkland Islands.Or should I say the 'Malvinas'?

Cruising ...
