It is no surprise that the most popular place on the ship was around the pools and hot tubs at the top. On the afternoons that we were at sea, there were several pool games. One woman from Minnesota was beating guy after guy at pool jousting, a game where one has to balance in a sitting position on a floating log and knock the other person off. Another afternoon game consisted of pool relay where a team of five girls competed against five guys. Each person had a large t-shirt provided by the ship. Once they completed their laps, they had to take off the t-shirt and place it on the next person. The last person had five t-shirts. The relay ended in a tie, but later footage by DeafNation showed that the guys actually won.
One of the most popular games was the Belly Flop contest on the last day:
A lot of people ended up badly sunburned, mostly because they couldn't tear themselves away from the pool!
