It has been pretty overcast today. We were mostly at sea and found ourselves looking for things to occupy our time... Of course the main thing to do is eat... We started off the morning with coffee and breakfast in the Horizon court. There is a huge selection of food in this buffet. All of us are thinking that we are going to gain 20lbs on this trip. In the battle against the bulge we have made a pack to always take the stairs. After the 8 miles in Stanley yesterday that is not an easy feat.

Paulie is the one taking the most advantage of the shipboard activities. He has probably cruised a lot more than the rest of us, doing a lot of Carribean cruises. He has quite a crush on someone in the gym so he has booked spin classes and some spa treatments plus he bought bingo cards for todays jackpot.

We started off the day by going up to Skywalkers lounge. In the day it is a great place to watch the miles and miles of ocean pass by. It is a great quiet area to read or use the laptop. Cory is reading my Daniel Quinn book, If they give you lined paper, write sideways. He isn't used to slowing down so the minute that he sat down he fell asleep.

Between eating meals we spent time playing cards, taking naps and eating again. Paulie played his bingo... He didn't win. How could he the average age on this cruise is 75... Those guys are pros!
Before you know it we were eating again!!!!! We felt like celebrities when we walked into the dining room as everyone greeted us. Being young, fun and nice to the crew makes you very visiable and likeable. I think my best moments on this cruise have been in this dining room. Leo, Vincent, Jordan and Uni are fantastic. We are only supposed to have two waiters but we have been surrounded by 6 to 8 everynight. Even the head waiters in the dining room have been coming by to visit us. It is fantastic.
