What’s your favourite part about cruising? Ours are sea days! We love just waking up, going to the gym, getting room service on our balcony and watching the early morning waves. We tend to spend most sea days by the pool if the weather is nice which is what we did. Other members of our party went to an art auction, shopping and watched the Beyond the Podium lecture which occurs every day. Today it was on the History of St. Maarten, St. Kitts and Nevis (one of our upcoming ports).
By mid-afternoon we were nice and crispy and decided to get freshened up, play some cards with our family in the Sky Lounge up on Deck 14 and make our way to another amazing dinner in the Silhouette Restaurant. Tonight was the first of 2 formal nights or on Celebrity they call it Evening Chic. Here’s how they describe it: Evening Chic: Women’s fashion: cocktail dress; skirt, pants or designer jeans with an elegant top. Men’s fashion – Pants or designer jeans with a long sleeve shirt, button-down shirt or sweater. Sport coat or blazer is optional.
Tonight’s show was the Production Show “Elysium”: “A curious princess travels to a far away kingdom where she embarks on a journey. Will she overcome the challenges to e crowned queen of Elysium? We thought the production, music and singing were wonderful!
That evening we checked out the Martini bar again (yes, this will be a theme) and then we participated in the Silent Disco… one of our favourite things to do on any Celebrity ship. Grab a free headset and set the channel to one of 3 colours which represent a different track being spun by the D.J.s. Watch everyone dance to their own beats but make sure you take off your headset to get a giggle as middle aged men and women destroy any sense of musicality, singing out of key since no one else is listening!
