#5: Activities and Entertainment

Whatever your mood, whatever your interest, there is always something going on and something to do on a cruise. From trivia and card games, book club meetings, and sports competitions to karaoke, game shows, and theater productions, there is always something fun to do.

In the evening, we attended sing and dance theater productions, special musical performances, comedians, and juggling acts.

The ship also offered "movies under the stars" with movies projected on the big screen, an "american idol" knock-off competition, and various game shows.

Before the final theater production of the week, the crew members distributed balloons throughout the audience. I don't know why I found this so comical, but you'd think these people had never seen a balloon before--it was like all out balloon war with everyone out of their seat bopping balloons all over the place.

That teeny little speck in the water is Aaron cruising full-speed on his jetski in Cozumel.

Another great photo by me;) That blob floating in the water is Aaron snorkeling at the beach in Cozumel.

We gave ourselves a self-guided tour around the island in our rental Jeep at Cozumel.

Major Highlight: We signed up for riding ATVs and cave-tubing in Belize. It was pouring down rain, but the temperature was still mid-70s and we were determined to make the best of it....so, we just got down and dirty. We rode our ATVs through a swamp with mud up to our knees, charging over boulders and tree roots. Aaron got himself stuck in the mud twice and had to be towed out. When we finished, he was covered in mud clear up to his eye brows. We didn't worry too much about the mud, because afterwards we went cave-tubing. We hiked through the Belizean jungle, sopping wet, until we got to the launching site where we floated on our inner tubes back down the river, through amazing cave formations. It a word, it was breathtaking.
