Cruise #1!

Destination: Caribbean Cruise!

One of the good things about travel, is that you find out how many good, kind people there are.  ~Edith Wharton

Hubby and I went on our first cruise.  I have to say it was a good time, but we were more exhausted when we went home, than before we left!  I think we did too much in that short 5 day timeframe.  We will know for next time!

I also want to say, learn from my mistake.  Don’t get SO excited about an upcoming trip… that you leave a suitcase at home full of clothes!  It is very expensive to buy a temporary wardrobe on the ship.  Everything is expensive on a ship.  Oh well, we made due.

As soon as we boarded, we got a free drink!

This was our cabin.  I highly recommend getting a room with a balcony!

If you ever go on a Carnival cruise, do NOT leave without trying the Molten Lava Cake!  Oh MY!

Hubby won a Groove for St. Jude dance off!  He was so funny.
My favorite drink.  Pina Colada!  Yum!

One of my most favorite (yet childish) things of the Carnival Cruise, were the towel animals that the staff left on our bed each afternoon.  They are so creative and fun!  I don’t know why, but I just think they are cute.  🙂

After our cruise ended, we decided that the next cruise we go on, we will not sign up for every single activity and excursion.  Carnival was wonderful ship, with excellent staff.  However it is a party boat, so I am thinking next time we will go on something a bit more “calm”.

The best thing about this trip, was that we got to meet Justine and John.  A sweet couple that we are going to be lifetime friends with.  They were assigned to our dinner table, so after we got to talking with them, we hung out the rest of the trip.  Making friends is something that we really enjoy.

Until our next adventure~
