And this little piggie ran home...

Ahoy maties! Much to my amazement, after a week of cruising the Carribean, I was able to squeeze my overstuffed self out of the cabin doors and find my way home, without having to buy myself two airline tickets for "overages".
I'll try to be brief, to avoid boring anyone, but here are some highlights of my cruise:

  • Untouched tropical beauty of Jamaica
  • Uninterrupted stitching time
  • Unbelieveable sunrises/sunsets
  • Never ending gourmet dining
  • Perfect weather for 6 glorious days
  • Red Stripe Light
  • Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee (oh yea, it really is $38/lb. good)

Some of the lowlights:

  • 3000 random yawho's sharing my ship
  • abject poverty just beyond the tourist borders ashore
  • 20 hours of rough seas and all that comes (and goes) with that

All in all, a good time was had by all. SIL and BIL celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in style, over lobster and filet mignon. Hubby and I enjoyed some much needed R&R. I would like to go back some day and spend a little more time exploring the natural beauty of Jamaica, the Caymans and Cozumel, but according to my travel compass, ITALY is next!

  1. Your post reminded me of the cruises I have taken. I haven't been on a ship since 2005 and I miss it. Jamaica is beautiful. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
