It’s day 7 of a 12-day cruise to Hawaii on board Celebrity Millennium. We are anchored off Lahaina, Maui, where we took a launch ashore this morning to find a working Internet service to file Examiner.com articles, send emails and check Facebook. We wound up at Betty’s Beach Cafe. The Internet was fast and free with no purchase necessary.
But I digress, this is about what we didn’t do during the last week and perhaps still might:
- Be Botoxed. Yes they offer the wrinkle-removing injections on board as Medi-spa treatments along with Restylane and Perlana for fees.
- Join the free daily Zumba classes led by an impossibly energetic instructor.
- Get Acpuncture, also available on deck 7 for a fee.
- Purchase spa treatments. Tempting as they sound they are also quite expensive.
- Bingo, nope not our game, even though today’s jackpot is $5,000.
- Attend an art auction although the art is interesting and so is the collection onboard.
- Ballroom dance, never happen.
- Gamble in the casino. Lots of ways to win and lose from slots to table games, but too often this cruiser has been on the losing end of the one-arm bandit, so as tempting as it is, staying away except to watch others test their luck.
We pretty much did all the other options from gym workouts to pool time, cocktails, Specialty Dining (the option of going to meals when you want and where). Our favorite feeding spot is the Oceanview Café for lunch and dinner, we’ve only hit the main dining room (Metropolitan) once so far, had two in-stateroom services and one gourmet dining experience at Olympic ($45 a person), doing the other alternative dining venue (Qsine) on the 30th which also costs $45 each.
There are five more days to go so who knows we may work our way down the dizzying diversion list yet.
