Now. They have a great selection of fruit some oatmeal They’ve got your breads and pastries as well as bacon sausage croissants and sausage muffins Mmm, that looks delicious Now the beverage station is Located close to the entrance of the restaurants where they have juice coffee a selection of tea and they have some milk there as well It’s a little chilly out here It’s definitely a little chilly this morning is It’s so beautiful out here this morning. This ship is really big We’re not noticing any waves at all but the seas are calm as well We’re somewhere off the coast of British Columbia right now You can also see there’s lots of people running around on this upper deck here This is where the running track is and it does a big loop around the pool area Then some crazy dude is gonna go on the ocean. Loops. It’s really cold. Yeah It’s cold there he goes It’s way too cold for this this morning So we want to go check out the Observation Lounge and Pleasently it is very quiet in here. It’s like people haven’t really discovered this part of the ship yet. It’s really nice There’s lots of seating available and we’d hate grab a coffee. Come in here It’s really nice, especially since it’s chilly outside It’s really nice up here and we’re crossing our fingers that we are gonna see some whales no whales yet?

That’s what it it was really good They’re also doing this cooking demonstration of how they make sushi they’re giving lots of tips and showing techniques on how to roll the sushi and which Ingredients to coorporate and the fun thing is they’ve pulled out an audience member to come join the show They’re giving her some guidance and allowing her to make her own creation in front of everybody Yeah, I think it was a custom creation. She got to make as well then you get to sample everything that’s made at the end It was tons of fun and you learn a lot being there. So I Appreciate them putting this on for us.
