We've only been on a few cruises and they've all included Jim's sister, Debbie. The last one was over 12 years ago, so when she asked if we would go on a Thanksgiving week Carribbean cruise, we said sure!
The adventure started with the ride to Port of Miami. We crowded 6 people and lots of luggage in an SUV when we had hoped for a big van. Oh well, we can manage for the 45 minutes - 1 hour that it should take.
|Crowded but happy - on our way. That's Jim's nephew Stephen and his wife, Sarah|
|Really on our way now|
The ship skipped the stop in the Bahamas because the weather was still bad, but it cleared up by the time we got to the Carribbean islands and we took our one excursion to go snorkeling in St. Thomas. That was fun, even if it was a very crowded sailboat.
Food, food, and more food! That's the biggest decision on a cruise ship: which restaurant should we eat in tonight?
I especially liked the eggplant parmesan and asked the waiter if I could get the recipe. He said, "sure, what's your room number?" 9262 The next morning, after breakfast, we went back to the room and there it was!
|I loved having a balcony. How do I bring this home?|
