Cruising in the Western Caribbean. Day 1.

By lannabeiker | Lanna Beiker's Notes | 12 Nov 2022


I will continue about our second cruise.

Still, the first day of the cruise should be counted from the first morning, I think.
You wake up in the morning in the cabin for breakfast, and here it is, the first day of the cruise.
Because boarding on the liner the day before, check-in, landscaping in the cabin, inspection, formation to check the readiness of all passengers "in which case (pah-pah-pah) .... all this, it seems to me, can hardly be called the first day on a cruise.
Perhaps it would be correct to call the day before the cruise - "departure".
On the other hand, on this day, already in the morning, from 10 o’clock on the cruise pier, you are already handing over your suitcases, already checking into a cabin, unpacking your suitcases, and at 15-00, 17-00 you set sail from the land. You are already on the liner all evening and you even have delicious dinner on the first evening on the liner.

I ask you this question.
So, after all, the first day: is it the first day of settling on a cruise ship, or is it the next day - the first, when you have been sailing all night and getting up in the morning for tomorrow, already fully sailing?
I will not confuse myself and others, let me have the first day when describing this cruise - the next day after climbing the liner. 😁😍

This is a view of the cruise terminals in the Port of Miami, from where we went on a cruise, from the upper deck of the liner.

Let's go back to the upper deck.
People are already resting, setting themselves up to continue resting for the next week.

And some have already organized dances and actively involve everyone who is already resting on the upper deck, and people are actively joining.

So, under the dances, imperceptibly and sailed away. Moreover, we even discovered that we were already sailing, not immediately. And immediately began to photograph the receding port of Miami.
Pictures of Miami in the evening from the upper deck of the cruise ship are very beautiful.

The aquapark, the slides themselves, will open a little later, when we are already at sea.

But this bucket is filled, and every few minutes it turns over from filling. The favorite entertainment of the children is to stand under it and wait for the bucket to fill up and pour over their heads. 😁

The inner main hall, people have already settled down at the bar. Someone has not settled yet, someone has already settled and just started the rest.

Here is such a beautiful main hall with stairs and transparent elevators. On the reverse side there are still elevators that are not transparent.

I tried the transparent elevators in the main hall to take pictures from the upper deck down. Here's what happened.

And this is a chessboard on the upper deck. This is how you go and play. 😁

The first night we went to the gym. Rather, the evening was already the second, and the first day of the cruise, the one at sea. You run on a treadmill and look at the ocean. Very impressive. But you can also look at the monitor of the treadmill, there are different advertisements. 😉

And so they rested the first evening and the whole next first day at sea.

Phew, I barely stopped showing photos, so I threw a lot, and I wanted more and more, but I pulled myself up.
I’ll just show you the first two so-called booklets-schedules on the liner, which are delivered in the evenings and thrown into the mailbox near your room.
This is the schedule for the next day.
So I want to lay out the schedule of the day at sea for the most curious.
Even those who do not know English can easily see that the booklet has absolutely everything: where, what time and what events, on which deck they are held, in what part of the ship, what clothes to wear to dinner, what concerts and theater performances are planned from early morning until late at night. Very comfortably. Before going to bed, I got acquainted with what they are preparing for you on the ship for tomorrow.
