Too many drunks

There is a serious % of the 35xx+ passengers on this ship who are positive that it is 5 0’clock somewhere. I don’t get it. But then I fail to see the entertainment in being falling down drunk at any time of day.

Perhaps drink packages are just a really bad idea?

At least most of them were not the parents of herds of small children.

In any case, the Diamond Lounge is not over subscribed, the staff is lovely and the coffee machine now is supposed to be working 24/7. The staff also doesn’t seem to have an issue with people walking out with small amounts of snacks or chocolate covered strawberries. I haven’t tried the Suites Lounge. The suites are all full, mostly with families.

For me it was a fairly quiet day. I spent early morning in the Solarium. Of note, on this particular ship, it is located just aft of the forward elevator on the direct path from ship front to the Windjammer (Buffet) and there was a steady stream of everyone on the ship stomping through. I will vote for the Quantum class set up over this any day.

Tomorrow we hit Cabo. Since it is a tender port, I am not planning on getting off ship. Hopefully the announcement about whales and dolphins starting at about an hour before we reach there will turn out to be true….

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
