After months and months of talking about our second anniversary in Rome, we decided not to go after all...

We started the day by sleeping in!!!   What a joyous relaxation after TechEd and Tour-busses!   We slept late, exercised, and had a couples' massage.   This was simply two tables and two masseuses in the same room... no different than a normal massage except they ended it by massaging our hand and gently slipping them together so we ended holding hands.  It was really pleasant!   We just rested and puttered around the (very empty) ship that day... everyone else was in Rome!   

We booked dinner in the separate dining facility called "Portofino" which was a nice Italian restaurant and enjoyed spending time together.   They sang to us for our anniversary...

When we returned, more (very cute) towel art on the bed of our stateroom!   Shortly afterwards, the head waiter asked why we'd blown-off three evenings in a row.  We explained that the late seating at 9:30PM (which we had fought to get) was too late for our touring schedule.  She suggested moving us to the normal (7:00PM) seating and gave us a new table to join some other people at.

Tuesday was my favorite day on the cruise ship...
