Glorious Caribbean Holiday: Around the Ship

I have a lot more to show you from last month's holiday. Here's a look around the Royal Princess.


A cloudy day. This is the upper deck, where I liked to read and watch films such as Big (shown), Mrs. Doubtfire, and The Princess Bride. That pool was cold and deep and I loved it so much.


Inside, it's pretty everywhere.


Including the ceilings.


This string quartet played several times a day throughout the ship. I followed them around. I also followed the two jazz bands.


This barefoot vendor of happiness is a maestro called Kory Simon. I was a huge fan, and caught his show at least five times.


There were comedy shows.


Karaoke almost every night.


Cooking demonstrations. This one was Indonesian and Filipino dishes.


Ginger, lemongrass, coconut milk, garlic, onions, chilis... all the usual suspects.


Another cooking show in the much larger auditorium, demonstrating risotto and black forest cake.


This was followed by a trip to the galley.


This was relevant to my own job and I found it extraordinarily interesting.


Ship galleys are larger than aircraft galleys.


This sort of set-up looks very familiar to me.


Speaking of food, this was one of my courses one evening. I was so happy when Asian food featured on the menu.


I took a ballroom dance class.


I stepped on this gentleman's toes a few times.


My mom took these pictures of me trying to waltz.


Champagne fountain.


My parents! Aren't they cute?


This is a glass bottomed bridge for 360° views.


And this was the view from our own balcony.
