  • King Neptune reigned supreme as his court of crusty characters paraded on stage prior to the arrival of his Queen and her Mermaid court. They had the crowd howling with laughter as they swooned and swished their tails.
  • Ship tradition, whenever you cross the equator, is the pomp and ceremony to commemorate the “pollywogs” (first timers). And on the Serenity that means they have to kiss the fish which appeared to be about a 22 pound Salmon. Lucky for us we celebrated our second crossing, this time heading south.
  • Why is it that no matter how many times you see a man dressed as a woman with breasts the size of watermelons you crack up?

FUN-bonus – Our best guess is that under pressure from outraged passengers being charged for internet on an all inclusive cruise Crystal is giving all passengers one hour of FREE internet each day and it’s cumulative! And it’s relatively fast.

  • I will be celebrating my birthday this week and I am still working on the vetting of FUN passengers for my “4th cruise surprise birthday party” on the 12th! I will send invitations to 3 couples and ask them not to let me know if they’re coming so I’ll be surprised.


FUN-food – Dinner at Tastes – Located on Deck 12 adjacent to the pool, this more casual dining option offers a small but varied menu with tapas portions. While the menu doesn’t change we think they offer enough tasty selections so as not to get boring. Our first meal – roast butternut squash salad, ahi tuna jar jar (tartar in a jar), oven roasted cauliflower, Gambas a la Plancha, Chimichurri steak with sweet potato fries & Moroccan baked swordfish – VG!


FUN-fact – Chris has made an additional 21 trips to the library for music CD’s (they only let you checkout 2 at a time) and has now downloaded 1,441 songs to date.
