Seems like everyone wants to know what Christmas on the ship is like. Sometimes it's just like any other day, and sometimes it's very Christmasy. It's really up to me and how I much effort I put into it. The ship doesn't have a lot of decorations. A tree and the Santa Mailbox in the lobby, a tree or two in the main theatre, and some garland in the atrium.
I decorated my headboard.
We put some stickers up on the door. If we'd been more organized Trudy (my cabin mate) and I may have actually decorated the door properly and entered the crew cabin door decorating competition. Yes, there was actually such a thing. Needless to say we did not win!
All the shoppies have a stocking hanging in the office. I put some chocolates from home in each one...Caramello Koalas, Turkish Delight, Magic Elves and Freddo Frogs. We are opening our stockings before work tonight.
Two weeks ago we picked our Secret Santa names. Our Secret Santa exchange is after work tonight, but mine has been leaving me goodies on my door almost daily!
You could say I've decorated myself! I've been wearing christmas earrings (glass Santas from Key West, and a cheapie pair from the mall), charm bracelt and a santa or elf hat everyday for the past week.
The coffee shop is selling Strawberry Santa Claus. They are so cute. And very easy to make!
My cabin steward left me a monkey, at least I think it's a monkey, wearing my santa cap.
There was a non denominational service for guests this morning and there's one for crew today as well. Yesterday there was a holiday show including Santa in the main theatre, there's been carolling in the lobby, and a couple of times it's "snowed" in the atrium. I'm pretty sure dinner in the crew and staff messes tonight will be Christmas dinner with turkey and ham and all the trimmings.
Some of the ports are all decorated. Grand Turk....
So that's Christmas on the ship.
