November 21-22 At Sea headed to Aruba
Anyone who has followed our journeys probably knows that I prefer days at sea to days in port – except for certain ports like Hong Kong, Singapore, Auckland and a few others. I spend my time exploring the ship, in the early part of a cruise, reading, working on this blog, and generally attempting to be worthless.
This cruise was no exception – lots of reading and exploring, but no work on the blog since the internet was down both days.
After referring to the list of trips we have been on, I learned that we have sailed on the Oosterdam twice before. Once around the Caribbean with our oldest grandchildren, and once when we took Jeff and 5 of his high school friends on a cruise to prevent them from going to Mexico on spring break of his senior year. It worked like a charm, with much less stress than if he was running around Cancun or Cabo.
Even though this ship is a little aged, it is still a fine cruise ship. My definition of a fine cruise ship is “one that I am on”.
On to Aruba
