Our Caribbean Cruise Vacation - Part 2 Sea Days before Puerto Rico

Promenade deck Poolside
We boarded the cruise ship on Friday, October 30th mid-day.  We spent the afternoon familiarizing ourselves with the ship.  We ate lunch (and dinner) at the Garden Cafe (buffet meals).  The activities included a mandatory boat drill - did you know our muster station was not on deck but in the Stardust Theater?  We had participated in the Sail-Away party then took in our first show in the Stardust - it was a preview of all the shows that would be performing during the 14 days on board.

The next three days were all at sea as we cruised towards Puerto Rico.  Breakfast was spent at the Garden Cafe (almost every day).  We took in a presentation on the various excursions available and then booked ours (one tour for each of the ports of calls).  Participated in Bingo in the Spinnaker Lounge and watched various music shows in Gatsby's Lounge.  

David found his beer at Bimini Bar!
Day 2 at sea had us eating lunch at The Bimini Bar (it overlooked the pool deck) and dinner was in one of the formal dining rooms - The Aqua.  Since the cruise was our 30th anniversary gift to ourselves, we had a special dessert served to us by the wait staff (they were singing "Darling call me Sweetheart, I'm in love with you").  We also had our formal photos taken.  Day 3 at sea had us eating lunch poolside at the BBQ and dinner was at The Venetian (one of the other free formal dining rooms).  When we retired to our stateroom in the evenings, we were greeted with various towel animals.
