explorer of the seas

our ship, the explorer of the seas.  i think my east coast bloggers (yeah you, you, you and me) should arrange to go on a cruise next year. it would be awesome. we could leave out of new jersey. we’ll talk about it later, k?

our deck, but not really. i won’t mention how many times i got lost and how long it took me to find the room.  i was close to paying a worker to escort me back to the room.  save the directions, just take me! once i realized the difference between forward and aft, i didn’t get lost as much.  our room was located at the forward of the ship.  the room wasn’t only on the 2nd floor, but because of other rooms in between we had to go to deck 5, walk across the “strip mall” and then go down three flights. WTH!

i had to try this track out the first morning on the ship.  it was windy, so i only got in 2 miles before i had to take my workouts to the gym.

and it was delicious. rolled out of bed and hit the gym  by 7 every morning, except the last day. i think i enjoyed it too much and my body called out tired.

the room.  yes, it wasn’t spacious, but more than adequate for the trip. i don’t know if the beds were comfortable or not, but i dubbed them as “coma beds.” just sitting on the beds sucked me into a coma for hours. the beds pushed together for one full bed and there were two bunk beds above us in the ceiling, if needed.  oh see that safe over the TV?  one passenger thought it was a microwave, stuffed a slice of pizza in it and then complained to management that the microwave (lined with carpet) didn’t work.  drunk much?

this is deck 5, the main shopping deck;  it looked like a mall.  on the last night they had a parade and i’m told they had other activities on this deck when i was in the coma bed.

will share some more pictures tomorrow of the ship, darn internet is acting a fool (up in here).

    Yes! Yes! Yes! That would be soooooooooooo much fun! I’ve never been on a cruise in my entire life.

    Val, I’m ooo’ing and aah’ing over these photos. Holy cow…that ship was HUGE. When I saw the photo of the INDOOR shopping mall, I almost died. It looks like a FULL size shopping mall!

    And your room? That’s the size of my entire studio apartment, so I could actually LIVE there easily – HA!

    “one passenger thought it was a microwave, stuffed a slice of pizza in it and then complained to management that the microwave (lined with carpet) didn’t work. drunk much?”

    Bwhahahahhahahahaha! OMG…I laughed my butt off at that! HILARIOUS!

    Stunning photos, girl! The ship looks so much bigger and more elaborate than I imagined. Of course, I can only compare it to when I use to watch the TV show “The Love Boat!”

    Can’t WAIT to see more photos!

    okay, so you’re in. that’s good, now we have to talk to the others. woohooo.

    besides walking from side to side once in a while, i forgot i was on a ship when i was inside, it felt more like a hotel.
