Day 3 - At Sea

Good morning/ afternoon all. We totally lost time this morning as we did not wake up until an hour ago. Interesting observation as I have never done daylight savings on a ship before. My phone said 10am when I woke up as did all our other devices, but, Royal IQ, wonky as usual, looked like this:

Threw me right off as I did not know if being on Airplane mode affected my phone's ability to change time on it's own. So I texted my sister back at home to see what time it really was. Phone was right. Royal was wrong. Down here on Deck 4, the big clock on the Esplanade also says 11am. Maybe this is cost savings by RC to ensure that some people become pier runners tomorrow 😆

It's bit warmer today.

And since I cannot cannot compete with @twangster's tech skills here's another view from the balcony to show where we really are 😜

I am not a bot, fish, or a man in short sleeves lol.

Currently siting in La Patisserie waiting for WJ to open for lunch, since we missed breakfast. I can't remember if @twangster included this in his blogs but here is the menu:

Nice place to relax and blog 😊

Going to check on Hubby and kids back in the cabin. Hopefully chaos did not break out while I was here.

We are having the laziest time! I'm worried that my blog is too boring! Lol. 

Really liking this blog! Don't worry at all that it's boring, I'm seeing things on the ship that I haven't seen before, like the Patisserie! Between the Ben & Jerry's cups and the chocolate specialties, that could end up becoming my mid-day snack stop. At least, assuming the Ben & Jerry's cups are actually full cups and not the little 2-ounce mini-cups that I've seen in some places. $4.50 for one of those tiny things would be insulting in the extreme.

There was an ice cream stand set up in the WJ earlier. The guy was ringing a bell. Never came across that before. I wish I could have gotten a pic but it was too crowded. No charge 😉

Lunch in the WJ was uneventful. It was crowded again and people were not moving through it well. We got there at opening too...11:30am.  I didn't bother taking food pics. It was too crowded but did get some dessert station pics.

Don't forget to ask the suite concierge about tender tickets for CocoCay.

I'm in lowly Sea Class lol. No concierge. But we did purchase the Aqua Park/Slide combo as an excursion so I'm assuming that is our tender ticket? Cruise compass said that those who purchased shore excursions through RC do not require a tender ticket.

Yes, excursion tickets work as tender tickets.

Back from rock climbing. Hubby and kids got there at 1:30pm for a 2:00pm start. They were first in line. By 2pm when I got there the line was very long. I did not get a pic in the frenzy but the line started to the left of the wall and it was past the giraffe (not my pic...credit to google search).

You are required to wear socks. They provide the shoes and harness. No helmet for this activity.

Beginners:

Ever wonder what happens if you lose your  seapass card?  After rock climbing hubby could not find his. He went back to rock climbing to see if he dropped it. No luck. Went to to guest services and they basically deactivate your card and WOW band and issue you a new card. Pretty easy. Then D1 found hubby's card...location? In the slot for the lights! 😆
