DECEMBER 10th
Well, the cruise is fading into memory now. We spent many hours relaxing by the pool, enjoying a little casino play (Stu came out about $160 ahead), meeting some new folks, discovering several countries that we'd like to visit again (and some that we won't), ate too much good food including ice cream, cookies, and wonderful desserts, didn't drink too much though...guess that's a sign that we are aging? LOL! I discovered the Ultimate Mai Tai (I think there were three types of liquor in it...), had two formal dress dinners, watched a couple new movies, saw a LOT of great entertainment - comedians, hypnotists, singers, dancers....all in all, a wonderful cruise! Next one, we hope, will be to Alaska!

Here are a few of the pics from our last night on board.





Back to land and reality....LOL! Our new motto was seen on the cruise, "I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list."

Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna & Stu

  1. Just came back from a cruise on HAL (ms VeenDam) out of NY. Had a fabulous time. Would do it again. I would highly recommend that FT RV'ers take at least one cruise in their life. HAL cater to the older set and go many places. Looks like you had a great time!
