Well friends, I'm back from the most memorable, fun cruise ever. Our first encounter was trying to get aboard. The returning cruise had a virus among the passengers; therefore the ship had to be sanitized before we could board. We postponed our arrival at the terminal until 5:00 PM (which was the original departure time). Then, we were assigned numbers for boarding. We finally boarded at 7:30 that evening, but we all had a good time while waiting.

The first day at sea was great. Had some Red Hat functions to attend and we got acquainted with the ship. Of course we never skipped a meal. The food was wonderful, the service the best and the ship exceptionally clean. One thing that was different, and for our benefit, was we could not serve ourselves at the buffets. We were not allowed to touch any food or condiments. We were handed/served everything.

The 2nd day was in Cozomel Mexico and the shopping there is unbelievable. We had lunch at a lovely Mexican restaurant called Pancho's and of course
spent some $$$ shopping.

The 3rd day was a stop in Costa Maya. More shopping!!! The weather was gorgeous, about 82 degrees. And the water was an unbelievably turquoise. Of course each evening after dinner, we saw Las Vegas type shows. Wonderful entertainment.

Our 4th day was at sea and the waters were extremely rough. I heard that lots of passengers suffered sea-sickness. We arrived in Tampa yesterday morning to a temperature of 32 degrees. Brrrrrrr...
