What a jammed pack day full of fun..... First, it was a beautiful day for relaxing poolside and reading. As a matter of fact, it was pretty toasty! Then, before dinner we had the Mariner Appreciation Day Cocktail Party, the perfect beginning of a wonderful Valentine’s Day evening. The cocktail party was a lot of fun and nice the Holland America Line took time to honor their employees who had achieved 25 years of service, and much more.... After this wonderful event, we had a Gala dinner, hosted by Rene Felton, our Greenhouse Spa & Salon Manager. Also joining me were George & Neil, Michael & Susan and the 3 Bondi Beach lifeguards who were brought aboard for our Australian Beach Party.... What a wonderful time we had which was made even better with Debby Bacon playing in the La Fontaine Dining Room. After dinner it was off to the Valentine’s Day Ball! I am telling you that the last few days have been exhausting with all the partying.... The Ball was fabulous with everyone dressed up and looking divine. After the ball I was off to the Crow’s Nest for some late night drinking and dancing.... with an early morning sail into Townsville, Australia you can bet your bottom dollar that I am worn out..... Fun Times!
