After all that it wasn't even lunch yet so we headed back to our cabin for some more fun! We made our own fun video.
As Avril says food, "that's the key!" Oh my! It is time for lunch. This time we headed for the Gold Pearl Dining room . I ordered the mushroom cheeseburger and Avril ordered the "tuna salad." I had major food envy when the tuna salad arrived as a beautifully arranged Nicoise Salad. She shared!

Good heavens people there are choices here! We could have watched an ice carving or cooking demo. Perhaps we should have seen the master mixologist competition but chose the men's hairy chest contest. People having fun with alcohol,this calls for a tropical drink!

It is time for a nap! Tonight is the first of two elegant nights and I am a guy that loves to dress up. I bring a sport coat, slacks, white shirt and a couple of ties. Tuxedos are rare but are available for rent on board. There are many ship's photographers that will take great pictures of you and sell them the next day. The prices are a bit steep so I shot self portraits. I hate been photographed, strange for a guy that loves to take pictures. I must announce that the many shades of pink decor in our room give us a strange glow.

What is for dinner? Prime rib for me and lobster and shrimp for my bride.We split cherries jubilee for desert. A bit weary after dinner we headed for the evening show called "Beat" I loved it and it gave me enough musical energy to make it back to the cabin.

By now we are exhausted and ready for sleep. I barely notice our puppy dog towel animal on the counter. Tomorrow Cabo San Lucas! We love to cruise!
