The second day on our cruise vacation was easily my favorite.
Booze cruise + Some of my favorite people + My birthday = A fantastic time!
Since Ryan and I cannot seem to sleep in, we were up before everyone on Friday morning and decided to explore the gym aboard the ship and sneak in our one and only vacation workout.
The boat was rockin’ a bit on Friday morning and I couldn’t keep my balance very well on the treadmill. I walked for about four minutes before completing 30 minutes on the elliptical beside Ryan.
I didn’t really get my heart rate up too much, but it felt good to sweat a bit.
After our workout, we headed to the dining room for breakfast. I tried to start my day on a relatively healthy note every morning and ate fresh melon, two poached eggs, an English muffin with jelly, two slices of ham and a small soft serve cone every day.
I turned the eggs, ham and jelly into a make-shift breakfast sandwich that was fantastic!
The cruise had all-you-can-eat soft serve available 24 hours a day and I had a cone after breakfast and lunch every day. One of the many perks of crusin’!
The Carnival Sensation docked in the Bahamas around noon and our group had plans to board an all-you-can-drink booze cruise leaving from Senor Frogs, a popular bar on the island, at 12:45 p.m.
There she is! What a beaut.
Our group wasted no time hitting up the bar on the way pick up more booze cruisers and head out to an island.
Since our group and nearly everyone else on the booze cruise took advantage of the bar service, our time on the private beach was full of shenanigans and lots of fun.
My sister and I found it absolutely hysterical to randomly strike the most awkward poses known to man which quickly rubbed off on others…
And then I apparently looked a little too dry because this happened…
When Daniel started making a beeline for the water, I did my best to save my dress!
The water wasn’t cold at all and actually felt rather refreshing. It was so clear and gorgeous though scenery pictures apparently alluded me on this particular vacation.
Booze Cruise Back
On the way back to Senor Frogs, the music was blastin’ and the drinks were flowin’. I couldn’t stop the beat flowing through my veins and hit the dance floor with everyone to party it up for a few hours.
Oh and there may have been a limbo contest aboard the booze cruise on the way back…
And I may have come in second.
I am not flexible at all in my legs (hence why I am horrible at basically anything involving my hamstrings in yoga), but apparently my back is rather bendy. (<—Said like Phoebe Buffay.)
Our whole group was pretty surprised about the limbo contest and thought I should’ve been given a handicap once I made it to the final two because I am 5’7’’ and the girl who won was barely five feet tall and made me look like some kind of a Yeti.
Honestly, I blame the drinks for giving me the courage to even attempt to participate in the limbo contest because in my sober mind, I would’ve looked at that bar and thought that there was no way I would get under it! That’s what we call liquid courage, my friends.
After the booze cruise we stayed at Senor Frogs until we had to be back aboard the ship at 7:30 p.m.
We rushed to change to make it to our 8:15 p.m. dinner and let’s just say the ridiculous pictures from dinner are a hoot. Our themed formal night photos are coming up next!
