I didn't really know what to expect from the boat, living in the praries, we don't really have that many cruise ships passing though. I am sorry to say that I was one of the people gawking at
It was a pretty fancy boat on the inside as well. You entered into an area completely dedicated to restaraunts and shops, with a pub at one end and a fairly big casino at the other. The ship also featured another floor of restaraunts, a duty free shop, a movie theatre, and a disco. It seemed like there were endless things to do, and many different options for eating. Once we dumped our stuff in our (small small) cabin, Sofie and I decided to go explore and find something to eat. Upon closer inspection we saw that maybe there weren't as many places to eat as we initially though. All of the restaraunts were extremely expensive, featuring food that wasn't really appealing. Not that it didn't sound good, but it was all that expensive stuff that was
After wandering into the disco and seeing lots of people singing Finnish karaoke, leaving and coming back in later when dancing had started. At the start we just continued people watching, giving many of the people nicknames, such as "lonely guy" and "dancing guy". I did feel quite sorry for lonely guy, he was sitting there by himself in the corner for the first little bit of the night. Dancing guy was desperate to Dance, begging his cousin and his fourteen year old brother (who was in a bar drinking beer) to get up on the dance floor with him. He eventually did find his way onto the dance floor, and lonely guy did find some people to hang out with. Then white shirt kid came. A kid who was obviously way to young to be in a bar, and the worst dancer that I have ever ever seen. Sofie and I exchanged many looks about him, especially whenever he did his signature move. It is kind of hard to explain, but it involved his arms linked behind his head, and would start out with about four pelvis thrusts before he would bend his knees and rise back up wiggling his knees back and fourth as he did. There were many interesting people at the club that night, and it was a really really fun night. We decided to call it a night at about 3:30, because we had to make it to the buffet before 9 the next morning.
