I decided to visit the Windjammer after dinner.  I have no idea why.  It was sort of an involuntary reaction.  The pork tenderloin was pretty good.  The RVC was very moist.  I could only squeeze in a small slice in the name of research and out of respect for @Sweety.  I feel so bloated as I write this.

In other news the 10 drink card is $79 plus 18% gratuity.  

Voom is pretty spotty right now.  I haven't been able to watch periscopes or stream for most of the cruise and tonight is no different despite excellent weather.  It seems there is more to O3b than just the platform itself. I've read that there are spot beams that follow ships and it seems Liberty isn't in the limelight this cruise.  I've got more pics to post from the day in Cozumel and our departure but the post above took three attempts.  Sea day tomorrow, hoping for better Voom once we are in the sea of endless oil rigs.   Voom speeds have been up and down.  Sometimes offering the normal 4Mb/2Mb but too often 1.2Mb down and 1.4Mb up.

My T-Mobile service works pretty good in Cozumel.  LTE with 9Mb down, 25 Mb up.  It was nice having solid internet while in port.

  

Was it good?

Photo evidence that Twangster is not a robot....or at least a robot that emits a human like shadow

Funny, I was going through the pictures fast and went right back to this one... It's him!!!

We tried a RVC cupcake in the Windjamair, pretty darn good.  Will be keeping an eye out for the full cake.

Gonna definitely have to try the Sweet & Spicy Margarita at Sabor, and also that Grand Margarita if they offer it on Freedom!

Geez, first he convinces me to buy new lenses for my phone camera. Now he's getting me to drink more...

My husband loves the avocado margarita.

Day 7 - Sigh Day

The day you go 'sigh' knowing it's the last night.  Ugh.

Beautiful sunset night somewhere around 200 NM away from Galveston.

Another ship has been following us since dawn (well since leaving Cozumel but I first spotted it at dawn).  It's gained us as we cruised at around 18-19 knots over the day.  I suspect it's the Carnival Breeze also heading to Galveston.  I've sailed on her and her sister ship the Magic in 2015.  In fact that's the last Carnival ship I sailed, also departing from Galveston.

I watched it over the day off our port side trailing us all day.   At most times it was on a parallel course on our port side all day then recently it turned directly at us, then back to port, then back at us.  You could clearly see both in the face of the ship presented to us and in it's wake, it definitely was steering directly at us at times when it decided to turn more sharply across our wake and to our starboard side, always hovering right around the one nautical mile that I know is standard for separation.  

In the hour near and after sunset it has gained speed and is now on our starboard side overtaking us as we cruise a nominal 18-19 knots.

It appears to be running at top speed. 

I fear there may be a medical situation onboard and they need to close the distance towards Galveston for assistance.  I'm wondering if it changed course or if we did.  Professional mariners on both ships, I'm positive they are in constant communication, sailing these water along each other week after week.

Look at the very bottom center of this pic -- Proof of non-botness!! He does exist! :4_joy:

I totally missed this earlier today! 

It would appear that @twangster is slipping out of hiding, but he's also quite wise so maybe it's a red herring to throw us all off 😜
