the first two days were at sea. we left out of the Port of Houston at 4:00 on a Sunday. we got well acquainted with our ship. we had to have a balcony room because we didn't know how we'd take cruising and being on the water. but we are so glad we splurged for one. it was awesome to wake up in the morning, order some breakfast room service and sit on our balcony and watch the waves go by. good lord there is so much to do on ship! we spent an afternoon sun bathing and getting our tan on. we ate so much delicious food and that was all cruise long. from buffets to four course dinners. most were included but there were a couple speciality dining rooms that charged a $25.00 cover charge but still worth it. we did a little line-dancing and two stepping. played a little black jack and slots. did a little shopping (both on and off board). stuff our faces full of more food. had a couple's massage. ordered some delicious drinks and sat in the hot tub. oh and ate some more food.
