... and then it was time to eat again! Lunch was also on the deck and then we sat by the pool watching hoards of passengers enjoying the sun, which apparently has decided to stick around.
This afternoon we decided to attend the art auction – not necessarily to buy art, but I mean, there was a free piece of art for everybody that attended. I won't say it was a waste of time because I have never been to an art auction before, and we ...

After dinner it was off to Coco Bongo. Now this is part of the evening can't really be explained in words, it's one of those things you have to see and do to fully appreciate. I will say this, if you want a evening of great music, dancing, acrobatics, continuous drinks, and ...
