Cruise Day 2: At Sea on Eclipse Day

Cruise Day 2: At Sea on Eclipse Day

Day 2 was truly unforgettable, in that there was a lot of fun mixed in with downright awe…

We started with breakfast in the Windjammer, and then proceeded to the sports deck for some morning Flowriding. I’ve got video of that which I’ll post after I get home, for bandwidth reasons.

Jen and I took two turns each bodyboarding, and just thinking about it is making me want to go back and do some more.

We then headed to the Aquatheater for the DNCE and Bonnie Tyler concert, which I went into with mixed expectations – I was blown away. I knew nothing of who DNCE was, and didn’t know much from Bonnie Tyler other than “Total Eclipse of the Heart” and “Holding Out for a Hero” – both acts were incredible. I did a few Periscope broadcasts of the concert, and found both acts were full of energy and had incredible stage presence. It was amazingly fun.

Then, came the highlight of the day: The Eclipse

I took about 300something pictures, my favorite of which being the following, which I’d posted to my Instagram account:

I’ll be posting the rest of the pictures after I’ve had a chance to go through and edit them, but that one is certainly up there as one of my top favorites.

After the eclipse, was dinner at Izumi. My cousin Jen and I opted for the Hibachi experience which was a lot of fun. The chefs were very friendly and engaging, and really got into the spirit of how much fun that style of cooking can be.

After dinner, I went to the casino and made my obligatory donations… blackjack and craps… they were fun, and it took me a while to lose my initial investment so I don’t call that a complete waste. We then finished the evening with the comedy stylings of two fantastically hilarious comedians: Phil Palisoul and Kivi Rogers – find them on YouTube, they are brilliantly hysterical. I’d actually seen Kivi Rogers while on Majesty back in February, and he was even funnier this cruise.

That was it for Day 2… Day 3 is coming soon: anther sea day!
