Where I stayed
Let's just say we ate everything everywhere. Or at least that’s how it felt. But as Derek said in the an earlier post we were only two floors down from the buffet so we certainly frequented that a lot. Generally we spend dinner in one of the two main Restaurants, Taste and the New York inspired Manhattan Room. Both of these places were sit down and the Manhattan Room was at the very back of the ship with three story high windows looking out the Stern where we spent multiple nights listening to live music while watching the sun fade into the distance. We also enjoy O’Sheehans which was an Irish pub style restaurant which was open 24 hours, this of course came in handy during some of nights more than others but the food was always hot and the service fast whether it was 1 am or pm. Derek discovered Sheppard’s Pie here and well, go figures, his world has been changed
Additional entertainment and goings on:
Beyond eating and going to shows we spent a lot of time enjoying the other aspects that the ship had to offer. Every night along with your towel animal and potentially a time change notice card (we got 6 over the duration) you would get the daily bulletin for the following day. Honestly it’s pretty impressive the amount of things they including from language classes, mixers, fitness classes, movies, featured cultural food tasting, beer and wine tasting, games, art shows, bowling, spa tutorials, rock climbing, sports tournaments and much much more there was always something one could although pulling Derek off the balcony was sometimes a challenge. I’d say we spent the largest portion of our time lounging by the pool and water park area while Derek spent a majority of this time riding all of the three waterslides over and over again. He was also a rock climbing fool and we did play a little soccer and basket ball however neither of us is going to be drafted into the NBA anytime soon, thank goodness for the netting that surrounded the court
It’s safe to say we enjoyed ourselves and while we were more than excited to see the family it was a little sad to say goodbye. Luckily Derek had the breakfast buffet to ease his concerns before we headed off the boat in Barcelona only a day away from Germany and seeing my parents and the Mockoski party-of-three!!
