We just got back from a cruise on Monday. Chris and I have been on two other cruises together before, and it's always awesome! Going to the Bahamas in December is pretty spectacular since it's nice enough there to wear shorts, but not so hot that you can't think straight.
There is something so fantastic about being on a cruise!! It's something about the fact that you're not just out of town, but removed from reality. We for sure missed the kids, but not being responsible for them for a few days is rather freeing. Eating and drinking whatever you want, napping whenever the mood strikes, staying up late, and in general just being on vacation is so lovely!
Since all your food is already paid for, there is no pressure to like or eat what you order. Add to that the fact that you can order as many appetizers, entrees, and desserts as you like at one meal, and we were set! I even tried escargot if you can imagine that!!
The last night (when we were cruising back toward Port Canaveral) the motion was pretty out of control. Although I get motion sickness in a car or bus, I don't normally have any issue on a cruise boat. The swaying on last night was more than I care for, but I had some Dramamine with me so I did alright.
We were short a couple of our peeps, but we had a great time!!
