Seafaring Serenade Sojourn

32.22677 N / -124.02396 W en route to Hilo, Hawaii

overcast 58 °F

From today, February 12th, thru Friday, February 16th, we will be at sea. Since we're sailing at a whopping 16.3 knots (19 miles per hour) our journey to Hilo, Hawaii will span 5 days. One might wonder how to spend all this time on a ship, which, despite its size, can feel somewhat limited in space. To give you an idea of the current place we inhabit, our maritime home stretches 961 feet in length and 106 feet in width, with 13 decks to roam. The Serenade of the Seas is equipped to keep us entertained throughout the day. Just yesterday, we had the opportunity to watch the Superbowl Game on the pool deck, where the culinary staff served up burgers, hot dogs, and tacos, complemented by buckets of beer.



Here's a list of the activities we engage in (all around the ship):
1. Stay Active: Walk-a-Mile (which started on day one of the cruise) - Deck 12
2. Learn Something New: Continuing to work on my Genealogy studies
3. Relax: Unwind in the Solarium, reading a good book - Deck 11
4. Connect with Others: Workout in the fitness center with fellow travelers - Deck 12
5. Imbibe a Beverage: Coffee Latte from Latte- tudes - Deck 5
6. Entertainment: With our free internet we've been watching Reacher on Amazon Prime - Deck 10
7. Time in the Suite: Jeff "adjusts" the closet door (Finally got the screwdriver yesterday so the project could be undertaken. As those of you who know him will agree ... what's Jeff without a project?! He's already trying to "hire on" elsewhere on the ship :) )
8. Enjoy the Nightlife: Take in original theater productions such as tonight's musical event with classic hits from the 70's, 80's and 90's - Deck 5
9. Indulge in Good Food - our new, favorite expression - "Another day, Another dinner" - Deck 4

Let's see what lies ahead, as we steadily progress towards our next destination! As the saying goes "Who knows what tomorrow brings?!"
