Ring, Ring....Wake's breakfast time again. We ordered room service (living large 100%)not realizing we should debark the ship earlier than planned for our next island visit. Actually, we thought today was going to be another cruising day but surprise: put on the old hiking shoes and get moving: we are docked at St. Maarten. Left a note on our door "Thanks but No Thanks" for the room service and off we sped to the dining room for our sit-down breakfast service. I'm loving this ALOT and not quite sure how I am going to return to the real world. It won't be easy or pretty. Sated, we rolled off the ship and into another wonderful, fantasy land. The Island of St. Maarten is part French and part Dutch. It looks similar to St. Thomas with ... read more

Morning brought our arrival to the dock of St. Thomas Island. What a gorgeous picture it made....postcard pretty. Ooooooo, Ahhhhhhh. Enough beauty ogling. I still think it is terrific how we go to sleep in one location and wake in another. What a way to travel and see the world...or at least a part of it. But now it's the breakfast hour which we must attend in order to provide us with stamina for the busy day ahead. Once we debarked and set foot on the island, we found our way to the taxi station. These are not the usual yellow cabs. Although, there is a lot of yelling and hollering for cabs as in any city. The "cabs" have a front end of a pick up truck with what might look like a safari wagon ... read more

Another wonderful day in paradise. Breakfast was at the Windjammer Cafe. So tasty and sooooo filling. Enough food's making me sick. I thought a brief seminar about the upcoming 2 islands would be interesting and helpful. Sam said no one wants to hear it so he opted to go watch a movie. We should have listened to him because it was just a sales pitch on buying diamonds and jewels on these next two islands. Cory sat with us for about 15 minutes ....then he had enough and went on to the casino. Since I am not a big gem connoisseur, Sandy & I quickly followed in his path. We thought we would check out a presentation on digital photography but left before it even was about helmet cams which is not on our ... read more

Already, I'm finding it challenging to keep steadfast to this blog. You have been faithful to me and my ramblings so I must stay steady. So many things to do and see limits my blogging time. My memory isn't as sharp as it used to be plus I am faced with sensory overload while on this jubulient, floating castle. I've now resorted to old fashion note taking to use in preparing my blog. Housekeeping note: remember I am writing this blog while on our journey but not publishing it until we get home (no Internet service on the boat unless I want to pay $10 for 1/2 hour).... You're worth it but I'm not sure my blog is. So, today is actually Super Bowl Sunday (and we are back in the real world in our RV) ... read more

We love to cruise! You can't beat the bang-for-buck and the ability to wake up every day and be some place new. 13 of us all got together and decided to take a fun 5 day cruise to Cozumel and Progreso, Mexico on Carnival's Elation. Jason and I cruised with: Greg & Mel (first time!), Laurie & Devin, Alvie & Kristie (First time!), Megan & Jeremy (First time!), Dana & Ryan H, and Ryan T. Elation is a smaller ship compared to some of the monsters out there, but she's a fun ship nonetheless. I've been on her sisters: Sensation, Fascination, and maybe one other? We decided to cruise out of New Orleans because of the price, and also to stay an extra day afterwards. (There will be a separate entry on that later!) The Itinerary: ... read more

My dreams come true when our youngest son bought us an exotic 7 days Caribbean cruise aboard the Carnival Liberty cruise ship. I was impressed by the customer services that the crew members provide. Our stateroom was large enough for me and my husband. They clean our room twice a day. Foods are excellent, from the buffet foods they offer if you just want to eat casually on a very relaxing atmosphere at the 9th deck overlooking the ocean or you can select to eat your dinner in a formal dining setting in the third and fourth silver deck where they catered to your desire. Food service staffs were all efficient and friendly. There are lots of thing to do in the ship, from casino, listening to live bands playing 70s, 80to and incurrent upbeat music. ... read more

Bonne Année 2013 à tous Saison d’hiver 2012-2013 Bonjour à tous, Bienvenue sur notre blogue de voyage pour l’année 2012-2013. Encore cette saison nous voyagerons sur notre voilier Grand Style dans les îles Vierges et surtout nous ferons le voyage jusqu’à Grenade ou nous y laisserons le bateau à la mi-avril pour la saison d’été. Vous vous souviendrez dans nos blogues précédents je vous donnais des nouvelles de ma sœur Louise qui avait le cancer et bien elle a perdu son combat le 14 octobre dernier. Elle s’est éteinte tranquillement à la maison de soins palliatifs Victor-Gadbois de Beloeil. Triste réalité…. Entendre et vivre ces épreuves nous motive à profiter de la vie le plus possible. Et bien, pour nous c’est une nouvelle saison qui commence, ce sera la septième. C’était notre deuxième mise à l’eau ... read more

(I'm writing this blog entry in 2014, but wanted to share as much as I can remember along with the pictures!) The Oasis of the Seas is HUGE! We had a blast on this ship. We cruised out of Ft. Lauderdale on our honeymoon. There are multiple areas including the pool(s), central park with real trees, and a carnival area complete with a carousal. It even has an ice skating rink. Most ships have a single tower of rooms, this one actually splits the room blocks into two so that you have complete open air in the middle of the ship. The result is balconies that can face the action, or face the water. There is a zipline and 2 flowriders (waves / boogie boarding), putt putt, rock climbing wall, dive show theatre... it goes on ... read more

Hello from the Island Princess – somewhere in the Caribbean and unfortunately, heading home. We have two sea days left and we are going to enjoy them for as long as it lasts. We slept in this morning without any wake-up call and completed a good night’s rest. Somehow yesterday had been kind of tiring so this is a good day for doing very little. We had a little breakfast in the Horizon Court, and this time Janet got to try their “Texas-sized French Toast”. She initially asked for 2 slices, but changed to just one slice after she saw how large it was. David had his usual Ham & Cheese Omelet but added a Belgian Waffle today. We went down to the Captain Circle representative. This is basically someone to ask whatever questions you have ... read more
