Default Highlights of the cruise!

Well some probably knew I was gone on a cruise for a week and just got back. Here are a few quick highlights of the cruise. I still have to get the pics from the rest of the group ( we are sharing pictures). I have way more than these but I figured you would get the idea.

Our hostel, yes hostel, not hotel, was only about a block away from Miami Ink. Of course I went by but not one person from the show was working at the time, and they are WAY overpriced to get a tattoo.

Looks like a lot of fun. My Mom has made the trip down to Mexico the past two years to see the Monarch butterflies in the forest where they end their migration. Unbeleivable. So many butterflies that their weight breaks branches!

Looks like you guys had a great trip. BTW, how the hell did they get the elephant'* trunk to stay up?

Looks like ya had fun!

i was on the triumph a few years ago... still have the id card/room pass somewhere... room 6209 IIRC.

I know it was a fun experience for me,
it looks like it was a verry fun experience for you!

what i'd give to be on a cruise right now instead of sliding around on snow-covered with a 1/2" sheet of ice.

Looks like a nice vacation. I need one of those. lol

Only question I have is, I have heard that the cruise trips sometimes seems so scheduled. Was that the case on your cruise? Just curious.

Happy belated Birthday to Crystal and the vacation shots look great. I've never been on a cruise but sure would like to.

The days at port were scheduled, so you had from say 7am till about 4 pm to do what you wanted to do.

I liked it, that way you got to see new things, but the days at sea were resting days, hehe.

Tuesday was another day at sea
Wed was Georgetown Grand Cayman from 7:30 am till 4:30 pm
Thursday was Ocho Rios, Jamaica from 8 am till 3:30 pm
Friday was a final day at sea
Saturday we got to port at around 6am, go off the ship around 10 am
