Day 7; all my basic safety training done ✔
This morning I started with a wet drill and this was fine. I do feel quite confident in the water and happy to float etc so this for me was okay. I don’t like jumping in the sea but that was fine. After that I had a bit of time to work on some paperwork and also laundry, we met up for an island tour of Castaway Cay.
This was a great way to see the island and see what’s going on & where as crew we are allowed. There is even a crew beach which was amazing – clear blue waters. However today when we visited it was overcast, at points it was very warm. After lunch, we took a few photos and headed back on the tram. There is 2 to catch. As we were waiting for the 2nd one, the rain started. Luckily it was warm. We had to wait as the guests take priority so we didn’t get on the first one.
Eventually, we got back to the ship, where I collected my laundry and got changed ready for work at 3. I had a bit more safety training in my area, some time on the floor before grabbing some dinner. I then headed back to the floor and completed a health and safety scavenger hunt. I then again spent some more time on the floor which means spending time in my area with the children. It was lovely. I then got to attend a heroes and villain up with the teenagers where it was a game called ‘price is right’ which is basically guessing the price of Disney items which can be brought in the shop. I finished around 9:30.
I am really struggling – just really not sure this is for me. I just want to be with my family. I sent my mum some flowers for Mothers Day today (it’s Sunday) & I just want to be with them and not 100s of 1000s miles away. I’m just finding this very hard. I don’t want to give up but I’m just not sure it’s for me. I’m scared. I’m tired. I just want to be somewhere where I know and it’s not on this ship on my own. I tried this because I thought there would be more social side of it and meet new people. I say hello to them but I don’t feel close to any of them, because you never get time off at the same time. I’m just finding it very hard.
I really don’t know what to do!
