Cruising the Mediterranean, At Sea

"I'm always pleased with the entertainment and activities aboard a Royal Caribbean ship and this cruise is no exception.

The ice show is called Ice Dancin' and is spectacular! Gosh, I feel like I'm always saying that about the ice show but it's true! The music was really good and the skating...well, if you've ever seen one of these shows you know what I'm talking about when I say UNBELIEVABLE! The skating surface isn't that large, yet they're twirling, jumping, spinning, throwing....! The guest performer was Alexey Sirota from Russia and he rolled around on something called a German Wheel. It was pretty cool to watch. They did a group of songs to a ""hockey theme"" that was a lot of fun. Costumes were great. I always enjoy the ice show!

I love the 70's Disco Inferno party on the Promenade. I guess you can say they were my ""glory days"" so I never miss it. It always gets really crowded especially when it seems like the entire ship is doing YMCA together !

""Now & Forever"" was the show starring the Royal Caribbean singers and dancers. I always like these Broadway revues best when I know the song. In this one the do an Abba medley so I was loving it! Strong leading man vocals was a plus too. All in all it was a good choice of show tunes.
We had dinner at Chops Grille. Have you tried it?

Oh my gosh, it is so good! The shrimp cocktail has humongous shrimp...they must be genetically engineered that way! For dinner I ordered shrimp again! So good! There were 5 of us at dinner so they put mashed potato, asparagus, green beans, onion rings, oven roasted potatoes, and mushrooms on the table to share. And although I usually have the Mississippi Mud cake for dessert, this time I spotted something velvet cake!

If you never tried Chops before, I really recommend it. It doesn't have to be for a special occasion. Just go!

Tomorrow : Athens
