The cruise.. Day 1 and 2.

So here we go.... this cruise was seriously FUN ( I took almost 200 pictures) !! We flew to Washington early Friday morning. When we got to the airport there was a man waiting at the baggage claim for us holding a sign with my dads name David Bott. He took our luggage for us and headed us outside. He led us to non other than a LIMO.. yes that's right my dad had reserved us a limo to be taken to the cruise ship dock.. it was an amazing 25 min drive :). We got there checked in and waited to get on board. When we got on board it was amazing the ship was INCREDIBLE. 11 decks full of fun things to do. Outdoor pool, indoor pool, basketball court, running track, gym, casino, 5 restaurants, a mini shopping mall, a movie theatre, a big production theatre, bars, lounges, hot tubs (there was 6), a sauna, huge lounging areas it was amazing. We went up to deck 10 where they were serving buffet lunch and sat and ate while we waited for our bags to be delivered to our rooms. Once we were done we headed to our rooms, my dad had gotten us balcony rooms so we wouldn't have to be cramped on the top deck always looking for a spot to view over the ocean. The rooms were seriously awesome!! We had the emergency drill prior to leaving dock and then headed to deck 10 for the sailing away party. It was fun, fun, fun!! We spent most of the 1st day finding where all of the stuff on the ship was and then headed to dinner. The restaurant we ate at every night was so NICE! We had the same waiter, bus boy and drink guy every night by the 2nd night they knew all of our names!! We had a awesome table right next to a window which was great for a nice view every night!! We had dinner which every night was a 5 course meal and we were never disappointed! The food was so good!! And then when dinner was over we headed to the big theatre where they had entertainment every night! We met the cruise director, and watched the shows with singers, dancers, aerialists and much more. It was a great 1st night. The second day we were at sea all day. We laid out by the pool, sat in the hot tubs, took a nap, shopped a little, watched a magic show, ate tons of food (this occurred every day), and today was the first "formal" night. We all dressed up fancy and got our pictures taken. Afterwards we went to the casino for a bit and then to the lounge for karaoke night. It was tons of fun!!
