I'm On Vacation

And I know you're all totally jealous!

My boyfriend and I landed in Miami last night and stayed in a NON-sleazy hotel (my mom insisted on this). We will leave port some time this afternoon after some serious boat-exploration.

Ryan and I discussed this trip numerous times (probably talked it to death), and we decided this would either be the best trip ever, or the worst. Neither of us have ever been on a cruise before, so we aren't sure what to expect (despite all of my exessive googling), plus we picked a cheapy. You get what you pay for, right? Well, we hope to get more!

We're sailing on the Norwegian Sky, so it's "freestyle cruising." It's kind of sad to admit, but the main turn-off for other cruise lines was that we had to eat dinner with total strangers (talk about anti-social!). So this should be perfect because we can eat whenever we want, wherever we want, and with whoever we want (aka just the two of us).

One of the workout perks on the cruise ship is their gym is open 24 hours a day. I'm going to pretend I'm all excited about this, until I return in 5 days and report that I did NO physical activity other than lift spoon-fulls of ice cream into my gapping mouth.

I retract my last statement, because I just remembered, our excursion at the first stop is a kayak tour through the mangroves.



Take THAT, laziness!

Well, I think that's enough bragging for the day. I hope you're all having a fabulous time in your COLD locations!

Luckyyyyyyy. Keep us all posted on the cruise. I've never been either.... I've always been afriad of getting some sort of stomach flu.

Have a wonderful time on your "freestyle" cruise. I don't blame you for not wanting to dine with strangers - who wants assigned seating when you are supposed to be having fun?!?

Let's see cruise from Miami or deal with snow and cold? Tough decision. Enjoy the vacation!

Mike said...

So I guess the 8 more inches of snow that's coming is no comeback. :(

You are sure lucky to be on the cruise. I think you must be sipping Pina Colada by now. Whatever you do, have a GREAT time. FYI - it is very warm here as well.- NOT !

I am big fan of RCCL. As far was the "free style" cruising it is merely marketing. I am a very anti-social person (just ask my wife), but I love meeting new people at dinner. I have only had one bad cruise and we just asked to be moved to another table.
