April 11, 2016 – Day 2 at Sea
(This post has been delayed due to the fact that we were traveling last week. Since my last post, we have traveled from Florida up to Ohio, and this week, we have been spending some time with our little guys. It’s been a busy time. I still plan to cover each day of our cruise – mainly so I can look back and remember what a great time we had!)
Day 2 was another day at sea. On our previous cruises I don’t remember doing too much on our sea days besides sitting next to the pool. But not on this one!
We started out bright and early again, heading to the workout room at 6 am for 45 minutes on the elliptical! Exercise accomplished – check!
After a relaxing breakfast and morning, I joined my sister at the spa for a nice pedicure.This was the view from our chairs.
Having a great time at the spa!
One thing that Disney offers on their cruises are tastings, like margarita tasting, martini tasting, etc. We were going to sign up for the martini tasting but they were booked for the whole week by the time we went! (Sign up early!) So we signed up for one called mixology, along with my mother and stepfather. The person signing us up said that mixology is more hands-on, so I’m not sure if the other tastings follow the same format. We were really glad that we were basically forced to choose this one.
It ended up being a really fun outing. We got to sample five drinks – three full size and two half size. For each drink the bartender would show us how it was made, and then five of us would go up and make five of the drinks, which would then be passed out to all the participants.
Harry got a picture of me in my turn as bartender!
About to sample the last drink – a Jamaican baby Guinness, which was made with rum chata and Irish cream. Yum.
Not too surprisingly, we didn’t do too much for the rest of the afternoon. We went to get a bite to eat and then I took a nap.
The next official event of the day was dinner.

That night we went out for a drink and to enjoy some shows in the nightclub. Harry and I even danced! (Sorry no pictures.) It was another great day and we enjoyed every minute of it!
