Day 2--Shape Up or Ship Out

Day two started out with my hubby and I doing our saucy "day after" pictures the day before. Unfortunately, I don't have any of those to show you, but I promise as soon as I do, I'll share. :)

After that, we loaded up our guests into a couple of busses and headed out to the Port of Miami.
After waiting in line, we were informed by Carnival that we were VIPs and supposed to be in the considerably shorter line (no one gave us this information), and consequently, we would have to wait while they hunted down our sail and sign cards. No biggie. We're on vacation. :)

After finally getting our cards and getting on board the ship, we were greeted with the faces of some of the guests we hadn't seen yet. Nearly all of our 51 guests culminated around the pool. It was a fun and exciting time--the booze was flowing, the reggae was blaring, the sun was shining, and we were surrounded by all of the people we love.

About an hour and a half later than it was supposed to be, it was time for the Muster drill. Now, if you've cruised before, you know that it's completely "against the rules" (Disclaimer: Do as I say, not as I do--the muster drill is very important to pay attention to so that you are prepared in case of emergency) to show up at the drill sober. Ashley arriving sober for the drill has never happened, and probably will never happen. It's just the way it is. I accept it for what it is, and you should too. I’ll let these photos speak for themselves. ;)

Following an appointment in the spa for a mani and pedi, we met up with our guests for dinner, followed by and 80's review show.
After this, my husband and I parted ways, only to be reunited at the "alter" at 4:00 pm the following day.
