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

Well I have absolutely no idea where the time is going. It’s surprising that it’s been over a month since my last post. I was going to say that not much has happened, but that’s far from the truth. Lots of things have happened, just not a lot of it in trips ashore. In no particular order; here goes: One of the Eastern Caribbean cruises our planned voyage didn’t go over too well. This was because we didn’t do an eastern Caribbean cruise. Tropical Storm Emily caused us to reroute to the other side of the Caribbean. This meant 2 big things for me; Getting to go to a new port, and doing some hardcore navigation planning. Nobody had made any hard decisions until a few hours before departure, so the navigation officer made the route ... read more

Coco Cay Awoke early, had breakfast in the dining room (smoked salmon or course) and headed to the tender station. Since Ann and Bill had been there before they led the way to a lovely area far from the crowds. We found lounge chairs near an umbrella where we would have shade later in the day. I headed to the water with my snorkel gear knowing full well that the sightings would be slim. I could wade 500” from shore and still be up to my thighs. It was the only recent snorkeling I have done that the only fish was spotted while I was putting on my fins. Still the water was warm and salty and the sun was shining, the terns were fishing and the gulls were too. Back at the lounge a couple ... read more

Booze Bags I enjoy beer festivals, events or any event where the soul purpose is to get wasted on an assortment of beers. I guess you could say a bar is the same thing, but bars are often filled with lonely souls, kids that shouldn’t be there and predators of both the male and female variety and very rarely are you treated to a deal or a heavy pour. A beer festival is the best event possible, because the people putting it on share the same goal as the people drinking. They just want to get us as drunk as possible and we want to be as drunk as possible. I started the day with a mission statement, “12 beers, 3 hours, get disgustingly drunk. I attempted to keep track of how many beers and what ... read more
