Days 5-8, February 1-4                                                                           On Board the Crystal Ship Serenity, Part 2

 I have to tell you the ship is amazing. Everyday there are tens (if not hundreds) of things to do. 

There is an exercise room, a spa, a shuffleboard court, a deck on which to walk, trot, jog, or run, duplicate and social bridge games, mah jong, a library, a room dedicated to putting bazillion piece jigsaw puzzles together, swimming (if the seas are not to rough), paddle tennis, and sun bathing. Recent and classic movies are shown twice a day in the Hollywood Theater.

There are guest lecturers who share their knowledge about the history and geography of the south pacific. Senator Bob Graham (FL) is on board and has lectured and participated in panel discussions. Astronaut Tom Jones is cruising and has lectured on his experiences and the space program in general and meets with cruisers at 5 a.m. on the 13th deck to star gaze.

There are a myriad classes on board: dance, bridge, knitting, painting with water colors, journaling, yoga, piano, golf (yes there is netted driving range where you can practice your golf swing and a green for putting), spin classes, and various computer classes.

Sherry is participating in a daily team trivia contest and we have both taken dancing lessons.  Sherry and I took a 5 part class in Photoshop Elements. I took a class in iMovie for the iPad and below you can see my first movie. What do you think Art Hoffman?

These are many of the activities aboard the Serenity and if none appeal to you just curl up in one of many interior or exterior lounge chairs and read, listen to music, or work a crossword puzzle or sudoku. Still not interested then checkout a dvd from the library and watch a movie on your computer or in your stateroom.  You could also hang out at one the bars or better yet the Bistro and watch the water and the people pass by.

And if you still don’t know what to do there is always shopping or the casino.
