I just got home from a great family cruise. Although sometimes difficult to say who we were traveling with (see previous post), we all had a great time on board the Royal Caribbean's "Liberty of the Seas." On day 1, we all flew from Washington, Oregon, California, Utah and Texas and met at the Miami International Airport with our 30+ bags (that included carry-on’s) and went to our hotel for the night. Day 2 we saw our ship for the first time, it dwarfed the other 3 cruise ships at the Port of Miami and we knew we were about to have a great time on board. While at sea we ate some amazing food and even went to Johnny Rockets for lunch, climbed the rock wall, watched an ice skating show, played miniature golf and soccer, rode the FlowRider, tried our luck in the Casino, admired the nightly towel animals, worked out at an amazing gym and of course relaxed in the sun and around the pools. At the ports we saw friends in San Juan, Puerto Rico, while visiting an old fort, where Luke enjoyed every minute of walking on the grass and looking at the ocean and lounged on the beaches with beverages on both St. Maarten and Labadee, Haiti. It was great to meet new people and see others that I had not seen in a few years, hopefully the next cruise will be just as fun and who knows, maybe it will be on an even bigger ship, the Oasis of the Seas that sets sail in December 2009.
After being in Sacramento for just a few hours, I will be off to Las Vegas this afternoon for work.
