Come Sail Away

Here's a few pix from our cruise:

Cozumel. That's our ship, the Pearl, in the background.

Sunset taken from our cabin balcony.

This is the pool area at night.

Therapy pool in the spa, where I indulged myself often and spent too much money!

This is the amazing way you can play Wii. The screen is 2 stories tall! Note the size of the people playing.

We bowled a couple of games on board. (No, I'm not telling you what I scored!)

This is our cabin.
Not really. It's part of one of the clubs on board called Bliss. Here are a few more pix from there:

That's my LSH tackling the rock-climbing wall. He succeeded making it to the top of the most difficult wall. My hero!

One of the kids'pools.

Pool area with bandstand. I can just hear the island music as I sip another pina colada. Ah!

My sentiments exactly (at least during that week.)

Family pool. They also have an adults' only pool which I loved, along with 4 hot tubs poolside.

Here we are parasailing. This was my second time, but it was just as thrilling as the first time.

Part of the sports deck.

These anti-bacterial soap dispensers are found ALL over the ship. The cruise lines are desperately afraid of passengers catching any germs that could be contagious. Passengers are instructed that if they come down with anything while on board to stay in their cabin and report it to the doctor. There are also crew standing in various places around the ship with spray bottles of soap. You cannot enter any restaurant until the maitre'd sees you wash your hands. I have to admit, at my first day back to work when I stepped off the elevator, I had my hands extended waiting for someone to give me a spritz!

And finally, I'll close with the first thing I look for upon arrival to any warm weather climates:

We're already saving our pennies for our next cruise!


  1. Looks like you had a wonderful time!

  2. How exciting for you to re-live your great trip. It looks like paradise!
