Just Sailin' Along

The places we have visited so far have all been places we had never been, so naturally we wanted to experience all that we could while in port. There are travelers who choose not to leave the ship. Some have been to a particular port many times before, or just don't care about seeing it. Cruise lines even offer 'Cruises to nowhere' for people who just love being on the ship.

We love the days at sea, reading on the deck, enjoying the sun and sea breeze. We watch for flying fish, and we have seen them every time we have cruised. This time, we saw many dolphins riding the waves created by the ship while we were in the Gulf of Mexico. When we get tired of the deck, there are many things to do inside.

This is Aaron, who led progressive trivia every night. It was much harder than Jeopardy, and I did not win the fabulous key chain.

This couple, Arvin and Emily, are singers who entertained us every night except one.

They are not only awesome singers, but awesome people as well.  I hope we get to see them again.

Arvin and Emily were finishing their sixth year on the Spirit and left the ship in New Orleans to go home for three months. After their break, they will be on the NCL Jewel from Seattle to Alaska.

We love the towel animals that are waiting for us when we return to our room for bed.  This night, it was a tiny mouse made from a wash cloth, peeping out from under the sheets.  Cute, cute!

Y'all ready to go to Cozumel?
