Cruising Alaska: Day 2 At Sea

Day two was spent at sea. Most of the day all you could see was water in all directions. It was a pretty scary concept to me, but it was pretty cool being in the middle of nowhere. We spent to day doing some fun activities.

First we went to breakfast. Talk about awesome! I had pancakes, an omelette, breads, orange juice, fruit and bacon. SO YUMMY! We were sat with some fun people at breakfast that we ran into often on the cruise.

After breakfast we went to a fruit and vegetable carving demonstration. It is amazing what someone can do with just fruit. Here are some of the carvings that he did in the hour we were there.
During the day we went to a lecture on shops to buy from in Alaska. Then we went to learn how to fold napkins into fun things. After folding napkins, I decided that I really needed to take a nap (because of the motion sickness medicine I was on). So, we just went and hung out in our room for a while. The rest of the afternoon, we spent up on deck looking out into the beautiful ocean and by this time, we could see some mountains in the far distance.
It was a formal evening in the dining room. So we went and got ready then went to dinner. Mine was really good. Jason had duck. Which he really liked, and I didn't care for at all.
I had pasta. And the desserts were AMAZING! I didn't get any pictures because I was too excited to eat them.
After the dinner we went to the show. It was a lady named Judy Kolba. She was a one woman show of singing and comedy. She was pretty good. After the show, we decided to go soak in the hot tub. That was really nice. Jason got into the indoor swimming pool also. But he didn't stay in long because it was salt water...gross!
When we got back into our room for the evening. Our stateroom attendant had already turned down our bed and left us with a cute little friend.
