They swam on this first day and that was it. Some people were brave enough to swim on other days but we don't do that when it's in the 60's, except in La Quinta when we heat the pool to 90!
We also did a little line dancing.
The next day was our first full dyad it was a day at sea so we took a balloon making class.
We also watched the professional ice carver make the head of the Statue of Liberty! After all, it was July 4th! We were a little disappointed that there weren't many activities going on to celebrate but I would say less than 50% of the passengers were American.
The girls loved the buffet. After a few days, we developed a routine. We would take them to the buffet when the kids club was closed. Then when it opened back up we would check them in and meet Olivia's parents for a nice sit down meal at the restaurant. Afterwards, we would head to the bar for an after dinner drink and then pick up the girls and go to bed. We have had some really good times with people we have met on cruises!
