Circle Hawaii Voyage, Day 69, At Sea

Well, we just finished up five days at sea and every one of them was pretty rough…..  I hope our return trip to the Hawaiian Islands is a bit smother and a lot warmer.  I had to spend the day inside again today, not the best for me but….  A nice day anyway.  Still doing a lot of reading and visiting with the sisters.  Tonight was our final Gala Night and dinner was , as usual, exceptional!  Despite less than optimal weather conditions, the cruise has been a lot of fun with some interesting sights along the way.  We loved our flight over Kauai so much we booked it again for the next voyage….  Never get tired at looking at natural beauty at its finest….  I also included a photo of the ladies from the Front Office who work so hard every day to keep the guests happy…..  lovely ladies!!!!

Circle Hawaii Voyage, Day 68, At Sea

I believe the good weather has left us for a while….  Today would have been a good day to be wrapped up in towels but, I stayed in the midship, Lido Pool area for the day, reading and relaxing….  To top it off I went for a 75 minute massage to release all the stress I experienced from having colder temperatures….  Life can be hard on a ship occasionally.  J  Today was also Twinkle, our Beverage Manager’s birthday.  She didn’t want word to get out so please keep  it to yourselves….  One more day at sea and then, Ensenada, a new port for me.  Just loving each day, no matter what path it takes…  Life is good!!!!

Circle Hawaii Voyage, Day 67, At Sea

Today was another relaxing day at sea….  I thought it was pleasant, despite the temperatures cooling a bit.  Ann, for example, thought it was a little cool as you can tell from her photo.  Anyway it was a great day!  Wonderful Indonesian Crew Show at 3:00, a nice walk afterwards followed by an amazing dinner….  How could life be much better than that!  Hard to believe that December is upon us, just hope our remaining days at sea are warm enough…..

Circle Hawaii Voyage, Day 66, At Sea

Life is good!  Another grand day at sea….  Just loving life, relaxing, reading and spending quality time with friends.  Today we had our final Gala night for this voyage (I think) and Ann, Cathy & I invited Shiv, the Executive Housekeeper to dinner in the Pinnacle Grill as a farewell dinner before he goes home for vacation.  Tina, the Pinnacle Grill Manager, Chef Joseph and the entire team did an outstanding job.  Everything was perfect!  Just loving every day!!!!!

Circle Hawaii Voyage, Day 65, At Sea

It was a wonderful day at sea….  The morning didn’t look too promising since they had everything in lockdown due to high winds and seas but that was soon rectified…..  I spent a glorious day poolside reading and visiting with the sisters.  Tonight we had another magnificent dinner, Chef Petr continues to do an amazing job!  Well, we have made the turn back to the mainland US, clocks move forward an hour tonight….  Hate losing hours, always love gaining one.  We have 5 days at sea, a stop in Ensenada then return, once again, to San Diego.  Then, we do it all over again…..  Life is good!
