NCL Jade Sea Day PhotosSaturday, April 19, 2014. Some people might think a sea day is boring. To me, this was absolutely perfect. I wanted a break from being go-go-go every day and having the stress of missing the boat. Also, I was in the middle of writing a book series and this would give me the perfect opportunity to catch up and write a number of chapters. I was looking forward to this immensely.
Plus, it's not like there's ever a day of "rest" on a trip like this. My mom had scheduled the six of us for a Jazz Brunch for the morning. Not only that, but the Cruise Critics had scheduled their meet-and-greet at the exact same time.
So I headed down early and went to the meet-and-greet first. I met a number of interesting people, but just as they were getting started, I had to run down the hall to meet up with my own group for the jazz brunch.
The music was amazing! The band was extremely talented. I swore I took a video, but I can't find it now. Maybe I hit the wrong button.
The brunch was quite lovely. All sorts of special items were out. An ice sculpture of a sea horse. The staff was personally making caesar salads for each person.
I had the salad plus scrambled eggs and salmon. I love salmon for breakfast. Bob and I have had that in Ireland and Alaska and it's just so nice. I'm a big fan of protein to start the day.
So we hung out in there until the jazz band was done for the morning. Then we took our photos. Always a bad idea, because now we were all round from all the food. We should take photos BEFORE we start eating :).
Then Jenn and I relaxed for the day. It was idyllic. Ahhhh, relaxation. Writing and reading and catching up on things.
Eventually it was dinner time. I had the turkey with gravy, but with green beans, not all the other stuff. We took another photo of us three. This time it was with the "olive-helmet-head" people in the painting from the dining room. We had been baffled why they had paintings of people with olive-helmet-heads. This ship was decorated all over with Hawaii-themed images. Do they have a tradition in Hawaii of people with helmets made of olives?
In any case, we then went back up to the spa to soak in the hot tub.
A lovely break.
