    we are home, unpacked, laundry done and are fighting head colds. (no fever, no aches..not flu)

    it was a nice cruise on a nice ship. (Carnival Liberty)
    we left out of Port Canaveral, less than 100 miles from our house and an easy commute if there is not mess on I4.

    our itinerary was a day in Nassau, a day on a private island, a full day at sea.
    we got onboard at 11:20 am on Monday, so actually had almost 4 full days onboard.
    we got off in Nassau for 20 minutes and got back onboard as Nassau is not our favorite stop.
    (I needed to buy some cheap sunglasses as mine got sat on by yours truly)
    we had thought about going over to the Atlantis and playing in their casino for a while, but the practically empty ship was calling us back.
    (if you have never cruised, when the ship is stopped at a port of call, the ship empties out and those left onboard have the whole place to themselves )

    all in all it was a good cruise.
    weather warmish and smooth seas til Thursday night....then we were rocking a little.
    I was only nauseated for a short while AMEN.

    we ate in the steakhouse 3 times.
    I had the SAME thing each of those 3 times as I love it.
    a glass of charazz wine, shrimp cocktail, lobster bisque, colossal grilled shrimp and baked potato.

    Paul mixed it up a bit.......2x he had rack of lamb and the other time he had the cowboy steak.
    Paul is not afraid to eat weird things......he did enjoy the "compliments of the chef"..smoked salmon on ice cream appetizer.
    YUK.
    On Thursday evening we skipped the steakhouse and the main dining room and hit up the deli.
    Paul had a grilled cheese sandwich and I had tuna and grilled cheese...then pressed.

    we had light breakfasts daily...just fruit and bagel. we skipped lunch. we did indulge in the ice cream bar once.

    casino kept us BUSY.
    we each had a $250 onboard credit that was allowed to be used anywhere onboard including the casino.
    I played that money in slots......at one point I was up over $1000 as was Paul. we cashed out a little every so often but we did make that onboard credit $ last for the whole cruise and did bring home $200 each. So that was a definite win for us.

    the only money that we spent onboard was for a couple of bottles of Kahlua and the steakhouse tips.

    the Carnival Liberty is a lovely ship.
    Carnival has a reputation for catering to the young and much drinking.
    that reputation has changed lots.
    lots of people on walkers or on jazzys/scooters.
    Paul and I spent ALL of our time in the adult only area, so we are not annoyed or frustrated with the young, loud drunks......we stick with the elderly drunks
    but seriously, Carnival does a great job for catering to all.
    there were very few kids onboard.

    looking forward to our land based time in Aruba in a couple of months!!!

    Loved your TR. I think your mood is changing towards cruising? We have only cruised once and it was years ago. I do remember staying on board one day when we were docked in Hamilton, Bermuda. We hung out at the pool and they had a steel band; so relaxing.

    my mood changes like the wind
    overall I DISLIKE cruising.
    I get antsy, I find myself sometimes bored, I dislike following a schedule and I hate being seasick.

    BUT and the big BUT is....Paul really loves it.
    He loves everything about it. (especially the self serve ice cream open 24 hr a day)
    When he is happy, I am happy (usually)

    All of this last minute traveling is very new to us............as parents our lives were focused on Kevin....well he is now grown,married, kids ......then our lives became focused on Belle..........well our baby Belle is no longer, so we are testing the waters at getting out of Dodge if the opportunity rises.

    I would still rather have the dog.

    I totally understand about the dog. Our niece lost her dog at the same time as you. Her husband said NO to another dog but was okay with fostering. She now has Lucy a 2 year old mixed breed. Maybe Paul would be okay with fostering?
