Adventures on the Maasdam: Day 7

(Final part of my cruise story ;D Still being really vague when referring to my family just in case some stranger stumbles upon these…)

Today’s towel animal: MONKEY 😀 (Finally had the guts to leave a request ;P)

Gaaah, I miss sleeping in already… mom woke me up at 7:30-ish, I was all dressed by 7:45… the boys were only just getting out of bed by then >:/ Mom and I went and got the whole family a table this time since we were all gonna eat at the fancy restaurant for breakfast today. I had an omelette for breakfast.

Adventures on the Maasdam: Day 6

(Another part of my cruise story ;D I’m being really vague when referring to my family just in case some stranger stumbles upon these…)

Today’s towel animal: a doggie ^.^

I slept in until 10:45-ish this morning, though I did wake up a few times at 8-ish. But maaaan, it felt so good to sleep in…

Mom came back at 10:50-ish and I’d only just gotten dressed. Stuff closed for breakfast at 11, so we ran up to the Lido deck and I got myself some grape juice and a strawberry Danish to stave off my hunger until lunch time. We walked by the fancy restaurant to check the dinner menu, but found out they were serving lunch today, so we decided we’d come back at 12:15-ish for lunch. We went up to the library and checked out a game of Scrabble.

Adventures on the Maasdam: Day 5

(Another part of my cruise story ;D I’m being really vague when referring to my family just in case some stranger stumbles upon these… JESS, REMEMBER TO PUT THE “MORE” TAG BEFORE YOU POST)

Today’s towel animal: It’s either a lobster or a fish…

So, Charlottetown today. Never been to PEI before. All I’m really interested in is the red sand anyways, I’m pretty intent on getting one of those dyed shirts or something dyed with the red sand, there’s no way I’ll be able to prove I was in PEI if I don’t get one 😉

Adventures on the Maasdam: Day 4

(Another part of my cruise story ;D I’m being really vague when referring to my family just in case some stranger stumbles upon these…)

Today’s towel animal: TURKEYTURKEYTURKEY 😀 Well, it was technically only one turkey XD

Got a few more hours of sleep last night, since we’re only in Sydney, Nova Scotia, and there’s not much to look forward to anyways. Mom and I had breakfast at the fancy restaurant. I had this omelette made of THREE eggs, and got bacon and sausage on the inside. It came with a hashbrown and 2 slices of toast. Mom ordered some funky-looking Belgian waffles that came with more of this compote stuff. We learned from that that compote is this yummy fruit syrup, not the funky slime at the bottom of the bread pudding XD In that case: I LOVE COMPOTE.

Adventures on the Maasdam: Day 3

(Another part of my cruise story ;D I’m being really vague when referring to my family just in case some stranger stumbles upon these…)

Today’s towel animal: Scorpion (my silly mother thinks it’s a lobster… really, lobster? They don’t have tails like that XD)

Internet. Want. Internet. Z is a funny letter. Zzzzzz-

Okay, just kidding XD Anyways, lost an hour of sleep last night because Nova Scotia’s in that -4 time zone, whatever it’s called. We’re gonna spend a lot of time off the ship today since we’re in Halifax, the town of my birth and near an area where my parents used to be a lot before I came along. My godmother’s coming up too since she lives a 20-minute drive away from the dock.

Adventures on the Maasdam: Day 2

(Another part of my cruise story ;D I’m being really vague when referring to my family just in case some stranger stumbles upon these…)

Today’s towel animal: Caterpillar! 😀 (Everyone tells me it’s an armadillo… I don’t believe them XD)

Mom woke me up at 8 frickin’ AM. I slept awfully at the Boston hotel for the last few nights so the bags under my eyes still haven’t disappeared… they got a bit better though. My hair’s a curly mess, probably should’ve dried it before going to sleep last night >.<

Adventures on the Maasdam: Day 1

(Part of my cruise story ;D I’m being really vague when referring to my family just in case some stranger stumbles upon these…)

It was a bit of a hassle getting on to the ship… this thing can hold 1200 people, and thank God they had a system for getting no more than 100 people checking in at a time because if everyone rushed in at once, it would’ve been bananas :S Speaking of bananas, a had more Dunkin Donuts hash browns for breakfast this morning. Starting to miss home-cooked meals…

I was checking the crowd out a lot. My parents already warned us that there weren’t gonna be many kids here. Using my totally computer-like brain, I calculate that 95% of the people on this cruise are old.
