Bahamas Cruise, Day 3

Today, we were supposed to go to CoCo Cay, Royal Caribbean's private island, but the weather put a damper on things. When Robyn and I went to breakfast, we noticed that it was raining outside and the water was choppy. The ship was docked away from the island, so they had to get little boats to shuttle people from the ship to the island. After breakfast, we went to inform Meg and Page about the weather. They opened the door with their bathing suits on. Yeah, that's not going to happen today unless you want to be really cold. The weather and water got so bad that they actually had to cancel the boats going back and forth for safety reasons. The 4 of us sat on a covered deck and read our books and walked around until lunch time.  Page, Robyn and I continued to read in the ship's library until I got sleepy and went to take a nap in the stateroom.  The rocking boat was very soothing.

Tonight's dinner wear was formal night, so we got all glammed up.  I had a scallop appetizer with some shrimp ravioli for dinner.  The scallops were served on some mini muffin tin looking plate.  The little bay scallops were basically swimming in butter or oil.  They were good, but I wish there was more to the dish.  The ravioli were perfect and so was my strawberry cheesecake.

I think there was another round at the casino and then it was off to the karaoke event.  There was a lot of teeny-bopper girls there that didn't sing particularly well.  There was a little girl (maybe 10 years old) that sang Katy Perry's "Wide Awake".  She called her friend Ashley to come sing with her, and as Ashley approached the dance floor she started to cry because she didn't want to do it. :( There was a young lady there that sang Barbara Streisand's "Don't Rain on My Parade."  It was clear that she had sung that song before because she did it with such gusto!  There was a male/female duo that did "Roxanne" that was pretty entertaining.  I definitely didn't have the guts to sing up there, so I give those that did major props.
