Heading up past the flow rider you can see how Adventure Dunes plays from the upper deck to the lower deck:

Love this transport tubing for getting the ball down there! Just better hope someone doesn't steal your ball while you're walking down there... 😉

Pub Crawl!

There are a large number of RCPeriscopers and folks that joined a FB group cruise page.  One of the events was a pub crawl which basically means 50 to 60 people descending on a bar at once (swarming) before moving onto the next bar and so on.  Stops included the Schooner Bar, Champagne Bar, The Pub and the Sky Bar.

They have a different style of hand washing stations leading into the WJ on both sides.  They feature air blowers built into the 'wings' on the faucet so you don't need paper towels.  Works well. 

Just like on Anthem.  Good to see them making this change so it's more pronounced that you need to wash your hands prior to eating.

Cabin Tour!

9532 port side forward balcony

 

 

If you happen to be passing by 9306 can you let me know if there is one of those wifi thingys near my cabin?  I asked Ron and he said he'd check...but you know Ron...LOL

Top tier event. 

This is when I miss my Nikon.  The dancers were great but this is where iPhone photography falls short.  With my Nikon this photo would be clear:

None the less they were very good when seen live.

It could have been the drinks that kept flowing as we waited for the Captain, but the numbers flew past pretty quickly.  Over half the ship were C&A members, I think I heard 232 Diamond and 131 Diamond Plus.  Ron beside me kept on yacking in my ear so I missed the rest.  (Just kidding Ron). 

Captain Shawn and a few of the Senior Officers:

The top cruisers with something like 1328 points (+/- 25) were called up and gave a short speech when they called upon @mpoole3 to re-gift their bottle of Champagne to him.  I think he was shocked.

9306 is in between access points.  There is one near the door of 9302 and one near the door of 9312.

Day 3 - Evening

Dinner was in the Windjammer tonight, Tex-Mex night.  After dinner I saw the saddest face pop up on my phone on the Periscope app:

Apparently FOMO was in play so @Matt held an emergency meeting of the central Florida RoyalCarribeanblog.com users.  I tried to watch the scope but the sound of the waves on my balcony made it hard to hear him, plus I was having so much fun on board that I had to put my phone down and get back to the Schooner Bar. 

This included another round of Billy Pando in the Schooner Bar.

That's @mpoole3 and @Big Dawg Ron.  He is known for his association with rubber ducks and his shirt reads "RELEASE the Quackin" which was entirely appropriate given the volume of Kraken and Cokes (or diet Coke) being consumed around the piano bar.

Adult late night comedy at 11:15pm with Lucas Bohn.  Pretty good.

Day 4 - Sea Day

Peak-a-boo Bridge

The Peak-a-boo bridge is a unique feature of the Voyager class.  It allows you to look down into the navigational bridge.

This is a public outdoor deck and the entrance is located off solarium on the forward, port side of the ship.

The leads to a narrow outside deck with views aft when you first step out.

Heading forward you are in front of the gym.

Here there is a covered area with views down into the bridge.

Having been at sea for a day and half now everything has a layer of salt on it so I apologize for the poor pictures.

Now lets get a bit geeky. 

<geek/on> There are two displays here that let you see the details of the ship and our course.

It looks like we have a direct course towards the "BYE PILOT" which I assume is the Bayonne pilot station where we will pick up the local pilot to assist us getting to the pier.   I noted the 'Desired ETA' was 08:00 but also noted that is UTC so lots of time to make our scheduled arrival.

In between the two displays are some explanations of what the bridge is, the layout and various components and systems.

On the displays I could see several ships around us but couldn't see them in the haze present on the ocean this morning,

End of geekiness </geek off>

It's a cool feature but can be windy at times.  They had it closed yesterday so I was happy to find it open today.

Breakfast in the Windjammer.  Gotta love that view.

One thing about my cabin.  My door is at the entrance to the elevator lobby.  Noise hasn't been an issue,  sometimes I heard loud people walking down the hall but you'll hear that in any cabin.  The thing is this.  There is this creepy dummy on display and every time I open my cabin door it is the first thing I see.  Last night his head turned as I walked past.  Okay, maybe that was Kraken.
