Rich’s Birthday Cruise to the Bahamas, Day Three, Part One

Who: Rich and Kathy
Where: Port Canaveral/Nassau 3-night cruise
What: Carnival Liberty
When: August 9-12, 2018
Why: Rich’s Birthday Celebration

Today was a sea day so we started off with Sea Day Brunch at about 8:30 a.m. We were seated at a table for two, our head waiter, Marcel, introduced himself and the assistant brought us the bread basket. Of course, I had to have the cappuccino muffin! This time I got a photo of it before I took a bite but I have to tell you, they seem to be smaller now. Rich had the lemon slice.

We decided to skip the Bloody Mary this time – so many drinking opportunities on a Carnival cruise  – you have to pace yourselves – lol!

I got my usual Huevos Rancheros with a side of Hash and Rich started with the Flaming Tomato Soup, Blueberry Pancakes for his breakfast entree with a side of hash. We both had coffee.

After brunch, we stopped by the Photo Gallery and picked out two photos with frames.

Pools on sea days are always packed – experienced cruisers usually stay onboard on port days and use the pool then – and today was no exception. Eating, drinking, and napping was in order for the big day.

Back to the cabin for some birthday Prosecco on the balcony, watching the sea go by – a favorite activity. We napped and then got up for Afternoon Tea – our first on Carnival and what a silly tea it was. Certainly isn’t Princess!

We were first to arrive, waited for about 5 minutes and then were seated in the back next to a window at a table for six. We were offered tea – I asked for decaf so was given Lipton for free and Rich chose the Coconut Tea and was charged $2 – is that silly or what? And even sillier, were offered two tiny tea sandwiches – cucumber and salmon – and dessert. I had an amazing chocolate cake and Rich had a tart.

A mother/daughter from North Carolina were seated at our table and we chatted for a while – I think I included the gist of that in the opening post about how odd the cruise was. Ha!

We returned to the cabin to pack and shower and get ready for the Birthday Steakhouse dinner with pre-dinner cocktail at the Alchemy Bar.
