We had an eventful 3-hour dinner @ the Ritz Carlton BLT Steakhouse last night, with multiple courses, birthday cake and a variety of amazing drinks, pre and post-dinner. This morning, we woke up today to a very sunny, 80 degree day and enjoyed a free continental breakfast on the terrace of the Quality Inn – it was pretty awesome for a 2+ star hotel; we were impressed. One of our friends went for a run through the neighborhood, awesome!, Nestor and I did a quick 15-minute work out in our room consisting of planks, bridges, push ups and tabata cardio intervals, and then finished with 5 minutes of climbing 7 flights of stairs. We gotta make up for all the food & alcohol we are about to eat on the ship this week!
In a couple of hours we will be heading to the port to get on board the Royal Caribbean – Serenade of the Seas around 2 pm – the ship leaves the port tonite at 8:30 pm, with the first stop tomorrow in Tortola, British Virgin Islands. We don’t have an excursion planned yet because the one we wanted to do was sold out (the Gorda Baths), but… we will surely find something fun to do!
