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

Oceans and Seas » Caribbean February 2nd 2014

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

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

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

Hello one more time from the Island Princess. We continued today on our cruise back to Florida. Earlier today they reported that we were about 50 minutes off the coast of Cuba. Anyway we should arrive on schedule. This morning we slept in until almost 8:00 – tomorrow will be a much earlier morning – so we wanted to be well rested at the end of our cruise. We went up to the breakfast buffet and had our usual breakfast. I guess we haven’t described that process as much as the dinners, so here’s our chance. Each person starts with a platter which is much larger than a full-sized dinner plate. There are virtually every kind of breakfast item you can imagine and you can take as much of everything as you want. Then you can ... read more

Oceans and Seas » Caribbean June 29th 2012

Woke up to find the weather pretty ordinary on the balcony. Squally showers and only about 20 degrees. The seas were a bit choppy as well. Had another snooze and when I woke up again around 10.30 the sky was getting clearer, and by lunchtime it was now fine and sunny and back to usual 30 degrees. The sea was flat as a tack with just a small swell evident. Had cereal and fruit for breaky but spoilt by a bad coffee which just lingered. Lunch I had my first Cheeseburger & fries and a little potato salad, while Kerry had the healthier Tuna sandwich from the Deli. Only did the one Trivia session today which was sports based. Joined forces with a couple who could barely speak English but we managed to score 10 of ... read more

Oceans and Seas » Caribbean June 25th 2012

Weather - a shower in the morning but gradually disappeared to overcast day with occassional sunshine and around 30 degrees. We started the day by going to Trivia where we met a nice couple from Maine who talked about how much snow they get and how it effects the school times. We had lunch on Lido Deck and met a couple from Long Island who were originally from Guyana who were Cricket fans. Clive Lloyd the famous cricket hero comes from Guyana which is part of the West Indies even though it is actually on South American mainland. Next we went check out Luke’s basketball comp. They were playing 3 on 3 and he was sweating big time wearing his new John Wall shirt (Washington # 2). Elise was also there chatting with her friends. Later ... read more

After all the excitement of the sting rays yesterday, today has all been about rest and relaxation. A trip to the gym, a leisurely breakfast, an interesting lecture on the slave trade (there was a lot of it in the part of the world we're in right now). Had a wonderful lunch with two totally diverse couples. One was a dinosaur from Yorkshire who thinks computers are a total waste of time and money and who firmly believes that big band music is making a rapid return to major popularity at the moment! The other couple we met on the yacht yesterday and they're right up our street with a lot of interesting things to say and a brilliant ascerbic wit which was put to great use the moment the dinosaur left the table! We got ... read more
