Cruisin'...... On A Sunday Afternoon

Even though we're back in sunny Buttonwood Bay in mid Florida (where it's actually overcast and 'damp' today), we have a wonderful week of cruising memories to look back on.

This was our 'home' for the last 7 days and what a great time we had.

With enough stories, photos (nearly 800) and video (over an hour) to edit (especially the stories !), there will be enough raw data for several blog posts over the next few weeks.

We got to see the world's largest cruise ship and I finally got to stand on THAT beach where landing planes can almost be touched and those taking off blow you down the sand and into the water. I ate till even my eatin' pants were popping buttons like shrapnel fragments and watched wonderfully entertaining stage shows most nights. We lay back on comfy loungers out on deck and watched the occasional movie on the big screen after dark. I managed to avoid the gym, spa and top deck jogging track but did try my hand at table tennis, crazy golf and doing the rounds of all the restaurants.

We experienced golden sands and crystal clear Caribbean water; we took taxi tours and even spent time at Jimmy Buffett's amazing Margaritaville complex.

And did I mention that we ate ? OMG did we eat. The scale will reveal all in the morning and it ain't gonna be pretty.

To be continued..........

Am envious! Have always wanted to go on a cruise. One day.

The things that tempt me most are those wonderfully clear seas and the pools on the ship (yes, yes, I know, I know, does she never shut up about swimming? - - er, no, she doesn't). However - - table tennis! I love it!! I look forward to hearing more about the cruise - and more photos too, please.

Sounds like you had a GREAT time! Not so sure your eatin' pants enjoyed themselves so much though..

But here's the question that's begging to be asked: Will you be able to get back to Leeds on schedule or will you be delayed by the volcano in Iceland?
