Family Cruise Day 2

We went to sleep the first night by 8:45 – all four of us! The kids woke the next morning between 6:30 and 7. I’d read that they had an omelet and waffle station opening at 8. These kids LOVE bacon and eggs, so we were the first ones in line!

We loved the restaurant we ate at. In the evenings it is one of the premium restaurants that charges an extra fee. During the day it is free specialty food – and nice quiet tables overlooking the water. We actually brought our food in here even if we didn’t eat there!

Caitlin also discovered hot tea. (Her Irish relatives will be so proud!) She loved adding milk and sugar and stirring – though she did drink a tiny bit!

We were supposed to stop on NCL’s island this day, but during breakfast they announced that it was too rough for the tenders to run, so it would just be a day at sea. Our little family didn’t mind too much!

We tried out the kid’s club a couple of times. Some of the programs sounded good enough that she decided to ditch us to take part. This worked well for Sean’s morning nap!

Sean wasn’t old enough to participate in the drop off programs, but they had an “Under Two Zoo” with parent/child activities. This one is baby safe painting with organic food paint. Sean started out neat and by the end was covered in paint and running around the room with his shorts falling off. Sounds like fun, huh?

For dinner this night we decided to dress up.

Outside the restaurant was a new Christmas tree to explore.

We have no shame in stopping strangers to take our picture, lol!

Caitlin LOVED the towel animals left for us after dinner.

Day two was a success!

Still home sick. Getting frustrated. Doctors appointments today - we hope. Sigh.

Your kids are SO cute, Jenny! What fun to go on a cruise all together. I cannot believe your baby boy is walking already.

Merry Christmas!! :)
