We toured through all of the on-board shops, finding really neat canvas tote bags half-off at one of the stores, so we each got one. The high-end store with the booze and jewelry had a ton of the sliding charms, but only one hanging charm—the ship, in either gold or silver. Mom said how long it had been since she got a charm for any of her bracelets, so I resolved to come back and get her one for her birthday.
From the windows in the restaurant, we could see the coast of Cuba!
We had dinner at the Animator’s Palate, and at dinner, Mom told the kids that Dad's sister taught us to tie a knot in a cherry stem with our teeth. After trying, they were skeptical that it could be done, so Captain Crossword demonstrated.
I was fine from the appetizer (tomato slices in a mustard and balsamic vinaigrette) through the main course, (ginger-crusted beef tenderloin with wasabi mashed potatoes), but shortly after half my dessert (white chocolate cheesecake), I got severely nauseated again. :( I managed not to barf this time, but standing in line for the formal portrait was agony, only complicated by Jeeves whining about how he didn’t look good enough for pictures and didn’t want his taken. *eye roll*
The towel animal du jour was a very cute bunny, and after I'd removed him gently from my bed, I curled up in it and slept very well.
