We are at sea heading to Fort Lauderdale. Not much to report. It’s a quiet day, but not for the chefs. Today the buffet was a major presentation in the Crystal Court. Like a lot of food!
I actually ate by the Neptune Pool and had a Funky Monkey. This is an alcoholic drink with 5 different bumps of booze (several I didn’t recognize). It’s served frozen and was good but probably dangerous to have two.
We ate at our assigned table for dinner. We had nice conversation back and forth; no politics. One couple is leaving in Ft. Lauderdale. He is retired from Nabisco. I asked him if that meant he tossed his cookies?
I had a Martini with dinner. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but when Serenity leaves NY it will be all-inclusive. In other words booze will be included with no extra charge. Good thing. The Martini cost $10 plus 15% tip.
Under the heading “it’s a small world” or “some kind of separation degrees”, our Cruise Director, Gary Hunter, was eating at a table for two across from us. I went over to say hello. About five minutes later the other guy at his table came over and said, “I think you did an Infomercial with my mother in Florida.” I did, about twenty years ago. The cool thing is, he recognized me. After 20 years, I hardly recognize me.
