We have booked a 7 night cruise! We will be sailing with my sister Alissa, and brother-in-law Mike.
Cruise line: Royal Caribbean, Ship: "Mariner of the Seas"!
We will be setting sail September 7th at 5PM. We will be departing out of Cape Canaveral, Florida and will be stopping at 4 locations: Labadee, Haiti; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; George Town, Cayman Islands; and Cozumel, Mexico. Luckily for Philip and I, I have accumulated enough miles through the Alaska Air Mileage program to fly us free to Orlando! Woo Hoo!
The days we have at sea will surely be exciting! The extravagant "Mariner of the Seas" is equipped with a basketball court, rock climbing wall, jogging track, dance clubs, ice cream shops, game nights, golf centers, ice-skating rinks, in-line skating tracks, karaoke night, shuffleboard, indoor and outdoor pools, video arcade, yoga classes, full spa, volleyball, cinema, late night buffets.... etc. You get the picture! =)
We'll also be spending an extra day in Orlando and possibly making a stop at Blizzard Beach, Disney World. Which is rated the 2nd best water park in the US.
Although far away, we're pretty excited about it! Everyone always needs something to look forward to, right?! I will fulfill my desire to be on a beautiful beach and sunbath in hot weather, and Philip will accomplish his mission of going to a new country every year! And I figure this also counts toward our 1 year anniversary present to ourselves!
Although it's all quite dramatic, we are pluggin on through, despite all his many handicaps! ;-)
