The Cruise Highlights - Part 5

I am a little embarrassed by how much everyone is going to learn about me now. When my sister & I get together we are pretty much dorks! I guess we step back in time and definitely do not act our age... It was such a fun trip and especially fun to spend so much time with Heather. Thank you Jared, Pam, Jodie & Mom for all the help with Greyden!!!

The start of the cruise!!! Leaving Barcelona...
We got bumped up into a large oceanview stateroom. WAHOO! The ship was amazing with so much to do. I still can't believe how big a cruise ship is and that it can float.
Since this was my first cruise, I did not know that everyone has to be a part of a safety demonstration. Everyone has to follow the drill with our life jackets and go to the emergency meeting place. I know it is meant to be serious, but I could NOT stop laughing. We spent our time taking pictures and making safety videos with Heather's video camera instead of listening to where we were supposed to go. We ended up in some crew area and had to work our way to the meeting spot. Ooops...
The Royal Promenade (shops, bars and restaurants)
We got these cute little towel creatures at turn-down service with chocolates on our pillows every night.
We played and lost at Bingo twice... This is my happy face before we lost.
We played in our window a lot. It is so fun being dorky sisters together!
We made new friends at dinner and other places on the boat
We got to eat multiple desserts at dinner. One night I ate three (after a five course dinner).
Until next time P!!! Thanks for the fun time. Love you!

One more time for the kids at home.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!

I'm so jealous. It looks like an amazing, amazing trip. The thing that shocks me the most is how nice that boat looks! It looks so freaking cool - and the window in your room is killing me. I'm dying to get on that boat and explore and eat!

I'm glad you had such a fantastic time. Your pictures are great!

I'm stuck in LA working, and reading your blog has made me feel a little like I actually 'got away from it all'... even if it was just vicariously! Thanks for taking the time to share, and all the great pics (and food descrips. that really is the best part) Glad you had fun!

Great pictures!!! It looks like you guys had a great time.
And I can actually "read" your blog now. Did you do something different? I'm just so excited that I can now look at your blog and not just wonder what all the pictures are about!!!
