We went on a CRUISE! Like Titanic, except our ship didn't sink. I thought you might enjoy a few photos of this fabulous trip.
This is us on the airplane. I would like to say that I REALLY hate flying, but I dealt. We got a free meal on the plane, so that helped make up for it. Here we are... ready for the cruise!
We left out of Miami, and so after staying a night there we got on our ship. We had a "fun ship" (pun intended) and a fun time.
One of my favorite things on the ship was tea time. They had tea at 3:30 and they served little sandwiches and desserts and different tea flavors. I LOVE tea, so this was wonderful. And, inevitably, every time we were there, the pianist would play the Titanic theme. You'd think they'd leave that one out of the repertoire when we were in the middle of the ocean. Here's us at tea time:
At night on the ship we went to the formal dining place and that was yummy. I had chocolate melting cake 5 out of the 7 nights for dessert - it was really good. Our servers were so great, as well, and LOTS of fun. Here we are, all decked out for one of the formal nights:
Our favorite stop was Grand Cayman. The only bummer was that that morning I woke up with HORRIBLE neck pain to where I could only have my neck tilted to the left at a certain angle or experience excruitiating pain, so in all the pics my head is slanted like a big dork. Here I am buried in the sand, with my neck slanted:
That was the only day I got sunburned, and it was on the right side of my neck from having it tilted in the sun all day. ha.
Mark's favorite thing on the ship was the piano bar. He and Levi hung out there a LOT. They got to sing along and request songs and they had a great time, so I had to show a pic of that:
While the boys were doing that, Dayna and I decided to hit the casino... okay we didn't really, but we took a pic:
I also LOVED how they made up our rooms TWICE each day. They made the bed in the morning and then at night they turned it down and put out those awesome chocolate mints and also made cute towel animals like this seal:
Mark totally karaoked while we where there. I need to get a video of that. He sang "Day-O" and man, was it hilarious. That was out on the deck by one of the pools. Here's me embodying the spirit of the seal by a pool:
At night we went to some of the shows on the ship. Here we are, ready for the show! WOO!
We had a great time, and it was fun to go with friends. We also really enjoyed the sushi bar, I enjoyed the free movie channels, I enjoyed the food (although I do admit it wasn't as good as Royal Caribbean's food for me), I loved the ocean, and I loved getting to sleep.
Quick poll, for you cruisers out there, what is your favorite cruise line, and why?
Here's a pic of all of us. We spent like an hour trying to get a good photo, and I think this is the best we came up with. This is really hard to do...
Anyone want to meet on the Lido deck tomorrow morning for breakfast? Oh... wait... we're not on the ship anymore.
