Cruisin'

I managed to scrounge up some pictures from the cruise. I know this is going to come as a shock....but I didn't take a lot of pictures. I was gloomy and cloudy, and I just wasn't feeling it!

We had big plans of playing mini putt putt golf, but that doesn't work real well in 15 foot seas.

We were still in dock when I took this picture. It was one of the few times the pool actually had water in it!! They had it drained most of the time due to the waves

The inside atrium of the boat was preally pretty.

The elevator in the atrium

We had this cake in our cabin when we arrived. It was DELISH!!! It was way more than two people could eat. So we each had a slice, and stuck it outside for room service to pick up. Our dinner steward told us the average person gains 2-3 pounds a day on a cruise. We didn't want to be a statistic, so we gave up our cake and took the stairs the entire time.

This was one of the lounges, Jekyll and Hyde. I thought it was pretty interesting.

The harbor in Cozumel when we arrived early that morning

Looking back at our boat as we made our way to Cozumel. I am ashamed to say that those are only 2 of about 10 pictures I took in Cozumel. I kinda had my hands full........

....with dishes. I didn't want any magnets, keychains, or tshirts. I wanted talavera dishes, and thats what I bought for myself. I absolutely loved them.

They are all different patterns, but similar. I can't wait to have dinner on these babies.

If I had planned ahead...I would have taken one of those rolling cart thingies, rolled that baby off the ship an filled it up with all sorts of talavera dishes. But I didn't. I had all I could handle in one bag.

I bought the Dirt Queen this platter (I thought we could share it ;-))


And of course, no trip to Mexico is complete unless you bring back some of this.....

 Vanilla!!! I brought back vanilla for everyone. That was what all of my friends & family requested.

So that was the cruise! Exciting huh???? The dishes are the most fabulous part ;-)

Sometimes is easier to enjoy yourself without having to remember to take photos. Love the dishes!

Love those dishes. Sorry your cruise wasn't so good. You have to take another one to make up for the bad seas. I have it in my plans - hopefully next year?
