At what other time…

Would you play shuffleboard, other than when you are cruising in the middle of the ocean? I don’t think anyone in my family has ever played shuffleboard unless they were on a cruise ship.

And, what about Bingo? I know there are lots and lots of people who play Bingo on a regular basis, but no one in my family plays…unless they are on a boat. In the middle of nowhere. With nothing else to do.

That’s a lot of Bingo cards, isn’t it? Not a winner in the bunch either. We were all hoping to win the Jackpot at the end, but then I guess that’s what all those other people were there for too. Tony was down to 3 numbers before it was over, and I think he was the closest of our group. 

Another thing you don’t see often: Ice Carving. I suppose it doesn’t sound that interesting really, but watching someone carve ice into a sculpture is pretty neat. Especially when they do it with a chainsaw.

This one was in the Windjammer dining area when we got on the boat. But, in the photo below you see how they start out.

Next, the ice sculptor takes out his tools and sets to work:

And this is the result:

Getting a decent shot was difficult, but the carving is of a sea bird…that’s what he told us anyways! We were all pretty impressed that he did most of the work with a chainsaw. The same guy also carves all of the fruit on the ship. But not with a chainsaw. :)
