Another wonderful relaxing day without a whole lot to do. We visited the gym before breakfast. Afterwards we joined the Cruise Critic group met to have a “Slot Pull”. Thirty nine of us ponied up $15 each, loaded a machine with all of it and then each took turns at the one arm bandit. An hour or so later, we had each lost $6 but had a great deal of fun….especially the three times the wheel of fortune almost landed on a thousand bucks.
After the pull, we attended the Lattitudes (Norwegian’s loyalty program) party where as usual we didn’t win anything but did partake of the free drinks!
After a relaxing lunch we retired to our room, I enjoyed reading in the sun on the balcony while Mike did the same (along with a nap) inside.
Around four we headed to the Margarita Tasting which while tasty wasn’t as fun as usual. The bartender leading it wasn’t overly personable, her command of English not the best and she seemed more interested in trying to teach us about agave than about margaritas. Oh well, it was still an enjoyable and tasty hour or so.
Norwegian advertises a daily gather for the gay folk on board and Mike and I usually attend. This trip has a large group aboard, 20 or so who typically come each evening. Interestingly, all but three or four are married couples. At the gathering today, someone pointed out that it was 70s night at the disco so we all agreed to meet there after dinner and the show.
We had dinner with Glenn and Will with whom we will be sharing a rental car to Butchart Gardens in Victoria and then went to the show. Tonight was a jersey boys-esque group doing a tribute to Frankie Vali and the 4 Seasons. They were ok, some found them great….me, not so much.
Then it was off to he disco. Danced til about 11 when I decided the best way to cool off was in the pool, unfortunately it was closed, but the hot tubs weren’t and one of them wasn’t heated so I enjoyed cooling down and getting a foot and back massage!
Got in bed after midnight!!! That’s a first in quite a while.
