This photo is a blast from the past, 2007 to be exact. Fred and I were on the cruise with my parents. It departed Charleston and went to George Town (Grand Cayman), Cozumel (Mexico) and Key West (Florida). I appear a bit apprehensive in this photo. This was before the ship left port. The cruise was in March, and the weather was beautiful here. We arrived in style…
We took a Little Black Cab which was so cool. We boarded the ship, and discovered that my mom put a water bottle in my dad’s luggage which meant that it was set aside with all the other suitcases that the cruise line detected had liquids (alcohol). The suitcase (and the water) was returned upon searching the luggage after standing in a long line. Haha…
I’m not a “cruise” person. I don’t like being on water without the ability to get to land quickly. So this was a “one and done” for me. I was afraid I was going to be seasick and in my room the entire time. Turns out it wasn’t me, it was the ONE PERSON who had #nofear of becoming seasick. The first day the seas were very rough (couldn’t even walk straight – it was crazy).
Food was excellent, I do remember that. Huge portions, to me, are a turnoff. A small plate that is delicious ranks far higher. Norwegian Cruise Line had Cooking Light options (including dessert) with every meal, and that was AMAZING! I’ve long been a fan of Cooking Light magazine, and their recipes are fabulous.
All in all, we had a great time, laughed a lot and ate often, or so it seemed. Did I mention it was #springbreak?? We didn’t realize it when we booked the trip. When we were shuttled to the ship we were definitely the “old people”. Talk about being entertained… 😳😂🙄😱🤦♀️, but really… 😳😳😳!
At night when we came back to our staterooms, the staff would have towels tied into different animal shapes, it was wonderful. It made us laugh each night.
I have to say, I remember the sea being SO DARK at night. Nothing to stop you from popping over the side so easily. At one point they closed down the outside because it was so rough. We had a great time, it’s a wonderful way to spend time with people. I’ve never seen Fred laugh as hard as he and my mom, and then me and my dad did at one of the shows. The man was hilarious – comedy about everyday situations makes me laugh the hardest.
We had a good time, but #givemelandanytime
✍️ Until next time…
