This stuff is old hat to your guys who have been on cruises, but new to us. To start with the cruise was reasonable. I believe it was $278 per person for a four day cruise. The check-in is sort of like boarding a plane. The security checks etc. We carried our luggage aboard, not knowing anything about luggage check it. It was not bad. There was a buffet on the 11th deck until the rooms were ready.
We heard complaints about how small the staterooms were. Shucks we had no complaint there, the stateroom was bigger than our bedroom. Also the bathroom was big enough to turn around in. We were satisfied with that. I saw sailors polishing brass, made me feel good, I like that. We rode the elevators some but we did a lot of climbing the ladders (stairs). We slept on the 2nd deck and ate most our meals on the 11th. So we climbed some. We did a lot of walking on the prominade and eleventh decks.
The entertainment was good. Comedians, impressionists, singers, dancers etc. I enjoyed it but understood very little that was said, of course. I loved the impression of Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Little Richard, Liberace & They must have a piano tuner aboard because he beat that thing to death, but he was good.Frank Sinatra.
To be honest one of the most interesting entertainment features was towel folding. You that have been aboard understand that. They can fold a variety of animals and dolls. We had a lamb on our bed the last day. The rabbit was cute also.
Our first port was Coco Cay. Sherry and I had just got ashore. We located a secluded rope hammock. We had just figured how to get into the thing and Sherry was going to show me some tricks, when she was embarrassed by a native sticking his head thru the Palmettos, he grinned, smiling like he knew the trick. Then he said the Captain wanted us back aboard because the ship had slipped her anchor, and we had to sail. (Doggonnit maybe one day she will show me the trick.)
Thanks for coming this way.
