T. Gozney Thornton and Old Hat Band perform at San Angelo Rodeo 2012

The San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo are in town!  David and I went to the Rodeo on Friday, February 17, 2012.  What an exciting evening!  We saw a World Champion Bronc Rider try 2 times to get his horse out of the gate.  The horse just shook her head and said ‘No Way’!  The announcer told everyone that she was just like a woman having her moment!  The rider did get another chance on a new horse, but got thrown off.

Then onto the dance in the Beer Barn.  T. Gozney Thornton and the Old Hat Band sang as we all had a Fandango of a Time!  They will perform again tonight and we’ll be there dancing away!

Tex Mex Fandango & Blues Cruise IV Wig Night

Have you ever wanted to go all out and let your hair down and be someone else?  Well you can.  The Tex Mex Fandango Cruise Wig Night is just the time to do this!

Tex Mex Fandango Cruise Wig Night

The cruisers wore their wigs to supper and boy did they turn everyone’s heads!  Even the waiter got confused by who showed up for supper…

At the dance, we all danced and had fun as if we were someone else, but at the end of the night we all made it back to our cabins with our other loved one.

Wig night is on the last night of the cruise and is totally optional.

I’ve always wondered if Blondes have more fun….maybe I’ll be blonde this year!

Enjoy our fun Tex Mex Fandango Cruise Wig Night video while listening to Augie Meyers of the Texas Tornadoes and his song ‘Who Were You Thinkin’ Of’.

There is always plenty of entertainment on the Royal Caribbean Mariner of the Seas, but the action is with T. Gozney Thornton, Old Hat Band, and all his special guests!

There are 4 performances to ‘Get Yer Dancin’ Boots‘ on and have a Fandango of a Time!  3 of the performances are private just to our Tex Mex Fandango group and are open bar.  In the Lotus Lounge: 1/29 from 8pm – 10pm; 1/31 and 2/4 9pm – midnight.

There is a Shipwide performance for all guests on the Royal Caribbean Mariner of the Seas on 2/3 in the Lotus Lounge from 8pm to 10pm, cash bar.

Don’t forget Wig Night on 2/4 at the private performance (Optional to wear wig!) Take a look at the next post ‘Tex Mex Fandango Wig Night’ and see what a great time we have.

At the last performance we draw for $500 towards your final payment if you have reserved the next annual Tex Mex Fandango cruise with just $25 per person.

Cindy Jordan and Tiana Thornton

Don’t think that T. Gozney Thornton and all his friends only perform at night….they also like to jam during the days at sea. You can join in and listen to them jam, or you can join in with Cindy Jordan and her Sing-A-Longs to favorite songs.

The Jam Sessions are in the Cloud Nine Lounge on 1/30; 1/31 and 2/4 from 2pm – 3pm.





Watch some of our dancers while you enjoy listening to T. Gozney Thornton singing his song ‘Strawberry Stallion‘ from his CD ‘Legends Before the Fall ‘.

Tex Mex Fandango Jam Sessions

During the day on the Royal Caribbean Mariner of the Seas, you can enjoy as much fun or activities as you like, or as little as you like.  It’s your vacation!

You can enjoy the swimming pool, hot tubs; a relaxing massage or workout in the Gym; dining casual at the buffets or a sit down meal in the restaurants; Bingo in the theater, Ice Skating, Rock Climbing or just enjoying lounging around the poolside; you might even just enjoy the sea air and read a book.  Sometimes we like to just sit and people watch with a cup of coffee on the Promenade.

If you want to listen into T. Gozney Thornton, Augie Meyers, Jeff Strahan, Joe Forlini, and Cynthia Jordan at a Jam Session, you can join them each day while we are at sea.  Heck, if you can play an instrument or sing, you can jam with the best!

Enjoy listening to T. Gozney Thornton’s song ‘Legends Before The Fall’, while you watch our video of last year’s Jam Sessions on Royal Caribbean Voyager of the Seas.  This year on the Mariner of the Seas we will have a reserved special room to Jam in!  So if you’re not too busy, sit in, sing along, play along, and get to know everyone at the Jam Sessions, we’re going to have a Fandango of a Time!

What’s There to do in Cozumel, Mexico?

Cozumel, Mexico is a favorite port for us. There is so much you can do.

The cruise ships dock at the pier, and you can walk off the ship and you are in downtown Cozumel.

Linda Wright, Shirley Looney, Phil, Ramona & David Werst at Palmeras in Cozumel, Mexico

There are several ship shore excursions to enjoy, from Diving, Snorkeling, Swimming with the Dolphins, Horseback riding, or jump on a boat and head over to Cancun. You don’t have to take a shore excursion to enjoy Cozumel. There are plenty of shops from Jewelry Stores, Duty Free Liquor Stores, Tequila Factory Stores, Boot Stores and even Cuban Cigar Stores. You can also have a relaxing delicious meal at several famous restaurants: Pancho’s Backyard and Palmeras. Or have fun and have an upside down Margarita at Senor Frogs or Carlos and Charlies…you’ll have to go to Cozumel to experience this, just don’t miss the boat!

Take a look at just a few fun things we found to do in Cozumel, Mexico! Enjoy listening to ‘Jose Cuervo, You are a Friend of Mine‘, by Cindy Jordan.

Look Who’s Coming to Dinner on Royal Caribbean…

There are so many events on a Royal Caribbean ship and Dinner time is one of them!

Linda Wright, David Werst, and Shirley Looney

I think Dinner time is one of my most favorite events on a Cruise. Like at home with our family it’s when everyone gets together and talks about their day. It’s where we laugh, share special moments, and enjoy a delicious meal together.

The meals are so fantastic! Each night you will have a choice of different gourmet meals to choose from. Starting with an appetizer, entree, and dessert. Did I mention that you can order as much as you want, or can eat? For example on Lobster night, (Yes there is a Lobster night!) you can order as many lobster tails that you can eat! The best part is that it’s included in your cruise! No bill is presented to you after your meal. If you want a scoop of Vanilla and Chocolate ice cream, go ahead…it’s your vacation and you can create your own meal.

There is also a standard menu included each night. What I mean by standard is you can order steak every night if you don’t want to venture to the gourmet meal. Or, heck order both! You can!

Dress code for the main dining room is very simple. Think of dressing as though you are going to a

David and Ramona Werst at Formal Night

restaurant in your home town. Not a fast food restaurant, but a sit down nicer restaurant. For women, cocktail dress, or resort casual wear. For men, khaki pants, polo shirts, or resort casual wear. What I’m trying to explain is that you won’t be turned away, they discourage shorts and tank tops, but you won’t get turned away. Funny story, some people decided to see how far they could push the dress code. 5 of them came down to dinner in the bathrobes from their staterooms and slippers. They did get a look, but guess what! They weren’t turned away!

There are 2 formal nights. This is not mandatory! The theory behind the formal nights, is so that you can dress up and have your pictures taken by a professional photographer. It’s also fun. In the olden days, every night on a cruise ship was a formal event! Formal to one person, is not the same for another person. You will see everything from Sunday dress, to cocktail attire, to Tux’s and formal gowns. Heck in Texas, ironed jeans and a hat is formal, and you’ll see that too.

Just have fun and remember, ‘It’s Your Vacation and you can dress the way you want!’
