It’s Tuesday and our first sea day. I have nothing planned until tonight’s Aqua 80 show.
Oasis Sea Day Morning
Up around 6 am, I headed to Promenade Cafe after dressing for morning coffee. It is especially good on this ship.
For food I decided to try Windjammer for the first time. They have the sinks inside the entrance and were scanning cards in and out.
I had a bacon and egg omelette made and found the potatoes and croissant.
It was bit of a wander to find a small table but I did.
Decided to try watermelon juice. Not a fan. The omelette didn’t have enough cheese.
Maybe a teaspoon; not good. Stopped by park cafe for part 2 which was a toasted bagel and cup of fresh fruit.
I didn’t sleep that great the last two nights (waking multiple times) so decided to take it easy this morning and just hang out in the cabin and maybe catch some more winks. Can’t get any sun since I have two beach days coming up.
Napping did happen and I woke with a growling stomach. Time for lunch!
Oasis Sea Day Afternoon
This time it was to the main dining room.
I started lunch with the potato soup.
This was followed by a BBQ pork sandwich with fries and cole slaw.
Dessert was the apple pie from the kids menu.
Doesn’t it look exactly like the apple blossom on the dinner menu? It was a very good meal!
I explored the boardwalk neighborhood for the first time and played a couple of the virtual games.
That was fun and very cool.
I enjoyed the display of the stages of creating a horse for the carousel.
An Aqua80 performer was practicing and I watched him for a few minutes before heading back to my cabin.
Back in the cabin I finished one book and watched a movie I didn’t remember in the theaters, “The Kid Who would be King” with Patrick Stewart. I Got ready for going to my table for the first time in the main dining room.
Oasis Sea Day Evening
Found table 313 but was surprised to see it’s a four person table.
My waiter asked me my name and where was another woman’s name. Of course, I don’t know her or have any idea. She hadn’t show up any night yet either. The table is very badly situated and four people really couldn’t sit there unless two were thin as rails but it’s fine for one or two.
I started with the pumpkin soup that didn’t taste like pumpkin at all.
This was followed with a shrimp cocktail.
I decided to try the tenderloin on this ship. I couldn’t get it at the right temperature on Liberty. According to my waiter it was “medium rare or Medium well”. This waiter said “of course” when I asked if I could have medium. Yay!
It was very good.
Dessert was carrot cake and decaf coffee.
Nice meal! I had 7 pm reservations for Aqua 80 so headed over at 6:30 and got pick of seats. It was a nice night to sit outdoors.
The show started about 10 minutes late while the captain repositioned the ship for less movement and wow, what a show.
It had diving, water ballet, acrobatics, tightrope walking and dancing in very inventive ways in such a small performance area.
Amazing! Here’s a video of a few snippets I took. You can find videos of the entire show from others on YouTube.
I didn’t feel like sitting through 90 minutes of Cats tonight so just headed back to my cabin. This notice about St. Maarten was in the cabin along with the cruise compass.
Unfortunately, I can’t really go to bed until the music in central park stops at 10:15 pm. Peace and sleep came right after.
