Preparation C

I'm working like a madman to get ready for the cruise. I went through my clothes to decide what to take and start packing them. I'm also doing some cleaning and running errands that need to get done before I leave. There are around 20 from here that are going. I know half of them. Five of us (Tina, Linda, Janie, Richard, and me) are driving to Memphis to take Amtrak to New Orleans very early Saturday morning. We'll be in NOLA from Saturday afternoon until Monday morning when we board the ship. We have two stops - Progreso and Cozumel. This is my first cruise, and I'm looking forward to it. Hope I get everything done and still get some sleep!

You will not hear from me while we're on the ship. Will you miss me?

This is the exact ship, Carnival Fantasy, in the New Orleans port. Wish us luck! My daughter Kathy and her family are going the next week and leaving from Miami on a seven-day cruise. Ours is five days which is just right for the first one, I think. They've been on many cruises.

Hope you have a terrific time! Cozumel is supposed to be great. I spent a week at a resort on the mainland just across from the island. Enjoy! :)

The only 'cruises' I have been on are freighters! This sounds much more fun. Looking forward to the report!

Oh Auntie Flame you are going to have the time of your life! Of course I will mis you!

You bet we'll miss you--but I know you'll have a wonderful time. If you're in Cozumel, I recommend scheduling a trip to the mainland for a Mayan ruins tour. It was probably my favorite excursion on our trip.

Joy said...

I'm looking forward to it. I'm not taking my laptop or planning to go to the internet cafe on the ship. We're all just going to have fun being together on vacation.

Ah- you are going to my favorite place in the world- Cozumel. Just saying it makes me want to cry.
My advice- get off the damn main street and cut yourself off from the herd. Cozumel is completely safe and there is nothing and no one to fear except for perhaps your fellow travelers. The food will not make you sick, nor will the ice. Don't even bother to ask in restaurants if things have been purified- they have! Enjoy the beautiful Mayan smiles.
