Mariner Of The Seas Bahamas Cruise – Day Two

Today was an idyllically lazy day.  I haven’t had this kind of a lazy day in a long time and, to be honest, I have to admit that I desperately needed it.

I woke up at my normal time — actually, my normal “sleep in” time — of 6:15 a.m.  I was up to the Windjammer for breakfast at 7:00 a.m.  I was good there, I really was.  Had scrambled eggs, a couple of pieces of bacon, grilled tomatoes, and Coke Zero Cherry (for my caffeine 🙂 ).

After breakfast, I began to walk around the ship taking pictures.

Up, Up, and Away!

After an hour or so of pictures, I came back to my stateroom and sat out on the balcony a while as the sun had finally progressed high enough in the sky not to bake me to a crackly crunch.  The stateroom attendant had already vacuumed up all the love bugs that had died outside and I was actually able to enjoy the balcony!

At 11:30 a.m., I went back upstairs for lunch in the Windjammer.  They had a really nice pan sauteed whitefish that was to die for.  That and some fresh vegetables made for a great lunch.

When I finished with lunch, I started around the ship some more, taking more pictures and exploring.  This is a huge ship and laid out completely different from other vessels I’ve been on thus far.  I’m getting lost pretty much all the time.  It’s frustrating yet intriguing!

After exploring, I did what any other person would do on a lazy day.  I took an afternoon nap.  Two hour’s worth!

After my nap, I got cleaned up and went to dinner.  I had French onion soup,   shrimp cocktail, and garlic tiger shrimp with fresh spinach and rice.  Yum!

After dinner, I went picture taking some more, mostly stuff at the top of the ship as well as the setting sun.  At 8:00 p.m., I made my way down to the theatre for the evening’s production.  It was the singers and dancers doing a tribute to Queen and Elton John as well as Scott Cavanaugh, comedian juggler.  His show is always fantastic!  The theatre is really nice.  I like how it is appointed.

Well, it’s 10:25 p.m. and the vestiges of my afternoon nap have long ago worn off.  I’m heading to bed.  Tomorrow is Nassau!  G’night, all.

  1. I’ll be with you while you’re in Nassau! Say a prayer, please, for Pat and Frank (1953). Thanks and God Bless! (The pictures of the ship are wonderful!)
