STATEROOM TV MOVIE: “Poseidon Adventure”

Some months ago I made a joke about showing “Poseidon Adventure” and other maritime disaster movies on the stateroom TV.  I can’t believe they’re showing it right now.

Can you image the uproar if they played Titanic on the pool deck one night? Now my sense of humor is pretty twisted, so I would find that hilarious, I’m sure others......not so much.

Our guide, Rafa, used up the time talking about Mayan history and culture. The Math geek in me came out when he talked about the “Base 20” Mayan number system.  The talk was interesting but it took away our time to explore the site on our own and shop for souvenirs.

DAY 5 Dining:  Caribbean Theme

I see how easy it is for the crew to confuse the Caribbean with Polynesia.  I praised my assistant waiter because his shirt had a map of the Caribbean islands.

 But wait, what exactly do you wear on Caribbean theme night?

DAY 5: Costa Maya

No excursions for me today.  Just sampled some tacos from “Don Lolo”.  I hope they were authentic... ha ha

Not normally a fan of Mexican food but that looks good. Was it?

I don’t think I can be a good judge of what a good authentic taco is. The only tacos I’ve had are the “Americanized” ones.

All I could say is that I liked it.

DAY 6: Sea Day

Bottomless Galley Brunch

Note: Only the drinks, champagne and fruit punch, are bottomless.  The brunch is pick one option per course - appetizer, main course, dessert.  The guy at the table next to mine asked for a second main course, he was told he would be charged for it. This package should be renamed, “Bottomless Drinks Galley Brunch”

Very interesting.  I've never done this event but had no idea that they would limit ANYthing with a name like "bottomless".  Pretty cheesy, actually.

After six Sushi Making Classes on six Royal ships, I should be able to teach the class. 😂 

My husband likes to do it on every ship, as each one is slightly different.  I think he's done 5 at this point.
