February 20, 2016 by  

  • The Serenity staff loves to make special occasions grand, and creating them to keep sea days fresh & exciting.

1 Valentine's Day 2016

  • Every hour is filled with any number of activities ranging from educational, spiritual, fitness, hobbies and games (today we had 52 options) plus there’s even a movie theatre. To date we have seen Black Mass, The Bridge of Spies, Trumbo, and Steve Jobs. And this week we started Bridge for Beginners.
  • My favorite featured lecture was “Writing Like a Pro” with Karyn Planett & Geoff Thompson who are the authors of “WORDS &4 Valentine's Day 2016 PICTURES.” Their specialty is the ability to create colorful captions and riveting stories for their travel photos.
  • I checked their book out of the ships library. It was great. And so great that I bought a copy! By incorporating their advice of using all five senses, I feel as if I am on high alert now, which takes “being in the moment” to a whole new level for me!

FUN-quote – “I drifted into photography like one drifts into prostitution. First I did if it for myself, then I did it to please my friends, and eventually I did it for the money.” – Philippe Halsman

  • It was pretty much smooth sailing once we left Hawaii until we hit the open ocean on the last 2 days before we arrived in Sydney Harbor. Both scary & funny at the same time, while having dinner in the Main Dining Room on Deck 5, a rogue wave full on hit the port side windows and the waiter’s response was “They’re just washing the windows.”

FUN-cocktail – Sun Splash – Absolut Mandarin, triple sec, cranberry juice, fresh OJ and lemon sour with a lemon twist garnish.
