The ship was scheduled to spend the day at Royal Caribbean's private island of CoCo Cay. We were excited to snorkle, kayake and really enjoy the tropical beauty of the island... Unfortunately, there were large swells and the weather was a little stormy. They announced early in the morning that we wouldn't be able to ancor and use the tender boats to get to shore in the swells. We had an unexpected sea day instead.
I tried laying out at the pool but it was drizzling off and on... so we decided to explore the ship, take some pictures and hang out.
The 2 pools
The atrium was decorated for Christmas, as was most of the ship... it was hard to think about Christmas when the weather was 85 degrees! lol.
Internet Cafe where we stayed in touch with the boys.
The Casino - it was the largest I had ever seen on any ship.
Winjammer Cafe - buffet restaurant...
Before dinner we took pictures by the big Christmas tree.
We got a towel animal every night - lol... the cruise compass and chocolates on our pillows.
Key West! We spent Thursday in Key West and it was warm and beautiful. We did some shopping, site seeing and then went on the "Crazy Boat". (Which took you out in a small boat that did 360s and was like a roller coaster in the water.) It was so much fun, but a little cold! After the crazy boat we spent the day in town where Key West was having it's version of Mardi Gras (that was postponed due to the hurricanes in October and November).
