It was 6:30 by the time I got dressed and up to the Royal Cafe for my mocha latte. I then found my sisters on deck 10 having coffee and joined them. Three of the group are going ashore in Belize and four of us (me included) are staying onboard.
Right after our ship was positioned for tendering, Carnival Legend joined us.
Port Day Onboard Empress
We did our own thing for breakfast today and I went to the main dining room and joined a sharing table with others. I ordered ham and two eggs over medium. Instead of a side of carved ham like in the buffet, it was lunch meat style. Weird! The hash browns they serve at the table are no good; the potato rounds on the buffet are very good. I enjoyed the company and my toasted bagel though!
After breakfast I got ready for the pool where Sister M and me found four loungers that were in the shade (at least for a while). I ordered a Bloody Mary; it must have gotten a leak…
So I had to have a second. 🙂
We enjoyed the hot tub and laying in the sun. Later I joined my nephew in the pool and it was so great to have it to ourselves. Very few people onboard and they were mostly my age bracket.
When the ice cream machines opened I got in line and enjoyed a chocolate cone.
After a couple of hours I changed and met Sister M at the buffet for lunch. I had butter chicken with rice, an empanada, and a slice of pepperoni pizza.
I spent the afternoon reading and napping. The Coronavirus news gets worse and worse. It is definitely stressing me out a bit.
Evening Onboard Empress
I got up and ready to go around 5 and went to the schooner bar for a couple of grapefruit and habanero daiquiris before dinner.
We were all gathered 10 minutes early so went ahead and got in line to check in at the main dining room. I wasn’t really excited about the entree choices tonight.
I started with the cheese plate, then had a cup of pumpkins soup that was very good.
My entree (along with my sisters and brother in law) was the ribs. They were country style and just too fatty. I really only had meat on one.
The rest of the plate was good. I had the sticky toffee pudding for dessert.
It was good.
The show times were different tonight and I missed the first one; didn’t stay out and about until the second one. This guy was in my room!
I did finish my book and finally turned out the light around midnight.
