Cruisin' with the family

On Aug 29th this year, our whole family including our 3 daughters, our son-in-law and grandson flew to Miami, Florida and the next day caught a massive cruise ship headed for the southern Caribbean. We stopped in Grand Cayman, Belize, Roatan - an island off Honduras, and Cozumel, Mexico. During the various stops we visited a turtle farm where they raise humongous sea turtles, para sailed, jet-skied, got massages, hiked thru the forest for 25 minutes after which we cave-tubed. Besides all this, we were waited on hand and foot by friendly staff both in our tiny staterooms and in the lovely dining room. On top of it all they had some of the most amazing shows I've ever seen. We laughed at the comedians, oohed and awed over the magic show, and sang along with the singers and dancers. Those 7 days passed by fast and now we're home again.

I was supposed to have a chemo treatment a few days before we left but with my doctor's permission, I skipped it in order to give my body a short break and to not be sick on the trip. And I wasn't sick! We used a wheelchair for me at first but I got tired of it and wanted to try out my sea legs and found I could do pretty well. The weather was, well...tropical. Hot and humid. Not Walt's cup of tea so he ended up staying on the ship for a couple of days. But that's the nice thing about a cruise, they have something for everyone.

Here are the three websites if you want to look at photos of our trip:
