And yes....it was INCREDIBLE! I never knew a ship could be so large, so beautiful, and full of so much to do!
Yes, it was the last cruise to Bermuda for the season, and unfortunately we didn't have good weather. No beach time on the pink sand of Bermuda! In fact, we went through gale force winds and very rough seas. Everybody was falling around and getting sick. Fortunately, I had my patches to put behind my ear, and it was actually kind of fun! I enjoyed the roiling waves.
My little group of four girlfriends didn't join any tours on Bermuda, but we were so lucky to hire a taxi driven by a native who showed us the whole island over several hours. (I even got a sneek pic through the gate at Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jone's home....shame on me, but what the hell...) This gentleman told us so much and took us to spots that tour buses couldn't get to, like the oldest church on the island dating from 1605. So cool!
Yes-Genegri pretty much said it all....I was amazed at the quality of all the performances. I was amazed at the professionalism and warmth of the staff who seemed to come from every country in the world. Food was good. I tried not to overindulge.
I could write on and on...like how my housekeeper, a precious young gentleman, would twist towels into various animal shapes so that after dinner every night, my roomie and I could open the door to find a new critter on the bed- an anteater, a rabbit, and a darling monkey hanging from a coathanger! It was a lot of those small touches that just blew me away-as well as the big touches!
I followed a lot of the advice you gave me, and thank you so much for telling me what to do. I'm just sad it's over...now back to work and tackle that gigantic Nutcracker program due at the printer on Monday...EEEK!
If anyone is remotely interested, I did get some good pictures. I'm processing the raw data and will have them all up in a day or two on Facebook. Please friend me! Just search for the same name I use here....Not that my pics are that great, but there are some cute ones.
Thanks again, and hopefully there will be another wonderful cruise in my future!
