After complaining that the heatwave in Seattle was not the cliché weather we were expecting, this morning we woke up to drizzly rain. I was not impressed as I’d spent an hour yesterday straightening my hair - a clear case of ‘be careful what you wish for’.
We managed to squeeze in all of our scheduled sightseeing earlier than planned yesterday which meant we had some free time before we had to leave for the port. Rather than getting a longer lay in we decided to check out another tourist hotspot instead: the Science Fiction Museum/Experience Music Project. We hadn’t planned to do this originally because we were unsure whether what was on offer would be worth it, but we changed our minds when faced with nothing to do and a $3 off coupon!
Our room on the ship is really nice and bigger than we were expecting, so we won’t go stir crazy in cramped quarters. It seems like most people on the boat have been on cruises before, so we’re the newbies and I think it shows. We’re not really sure what we should be doing. Plus we’re used to paying for things, so just going up and taking food for free whenever we want it is a foreign concept to us. Hopefully we’ll get the hang of it quickly – but not too quickly. Our waistbands only go so far.
