The view of Barcelona from the top deck of the shipTodd & I checked out almost every nook and cranny on the ship and were amazed to find an ice skating rink, climbing wall, basketball court, inline skating track, minature golf, and a promenade with lots of shops. We grabbed a quick bite to eat in the cafe and then checked out the fitness center. Remember, the food is all-inclusive so we could eat whenever wherever everyday....drinks on the other hand were not included and extremely overpriced. Since I hadn't worked out or run in 2 days, I had some major guilt going on and this little voice in my head reminding I was running a marathon in less than a month so Todd and I headed to the fitness center on the cruise ship for a workout.

After our workout, we went to our room and saw our luggage waiting for us outside the door. We showered up and got ready for dinner in the formal dining room. As you know from the other day, after dinner, the rest of the night was a night I'll never forget.

Watching the welcome parade in the Royal Promenade
Monday was our only day at sea before we had 5 straight days of visiting cities in Italy & France. It was nice to sleep in a little bit and get a run in on the treadmill. It was a very relaxing day and we spent most of it by the pool. The weather was absolutely perfect too.....sunny & in the 80s as we sailed to Naples, Italy.
