Everything today went like clockwork, and there were no long
queues at any stage of the checking in process. We were on the
ship by about 11.30am and found somewhere to get a
snack and a cup of tea.
It was announced that our staterooms (cabins) were ready. We decided
to go and see what our living quarters for the next seven days were
like! Although the cabin is small, we have a balcony that we
can seat on and have breakfast, weather permitting.
We had been warned that our luggage may not arrive until 8pm, so
we weren't surprised that it wasn't here waiting for us, but this gave
us the opportunity to unpack out hand luggage.
Then we decided to go down the the Stampers' Base Camp which is
where we can win SU products - I won a 6"x6" pack of Regals
Designer Series Paper!
I dropped off my swaps, and picked up some chocolates bars and
sweets that were on offer; I will definitely make sure I pop in
there everyday! At 4.30 pm there was a Welcome Reception
where there was live music, socilising and nibbles.
We went back to our cabin and were pleased to see our luggage had
arrived; so we wasted no time in getting our unpacking done and
homes found for all our clothes and bits and pieces.
|This reminded me of one of our new Dynamic Embossing Folders: Tufted!|
We decided to go and get ourselves a quick bite to eat, and happened
to come across a parade that we didn't know was in the program!
It lasted about fifteen minutes and was a bit of fun.
After our quick snack, we went to the casino, and I called it a day
when I had three dollars more than I started with. Obviously
not enough to change my lifestyle but after having thoroughly
enjoyed playing for less than an hour, I was happy! LOL!
I've posted a few photographs here, and more in the Photo Gallery.
Until tomorrow, happy crafting!
