Back from a cruise!

Wednesday, May 19, 2010


Yesterday, we got back from a 9-night cruise to the Caribbean....on the Caribbean Princess. It was a great time. I did over eat a bit, but I enjoyed the fruit so much that most of time I was going for a piece of cut pineapple, watermelon or cantaloupe....and I sure do miss it today!! I think the produce suppliers save the best fruit for cruise ships sometimes! I also walked or went to the gym almost every day. Walking around the entire ship on the walking deck was my favorite thing to do! 2.7 times around = 1 mile and I did several miles daily. Then there was the dancing we did many times during the evenings. I did put on about 4 pounds, but for me on a ship full of food for that many days, a 4-pound gain is amazing!!!

Well...time to get going....I have the rest of the week off, but I have many things to do.

    so you like cruises? i have considered going but was not sure if being on a ship would make me stir crazy or not, i suppose it is HUGE tho with lots of different stuff to do! i could totally enjoy someone cleaning and cutting up all my fruits and veg for me tho, lol! i hope you are feeling totally rested and rejuvenated and carry the feeling with you for months to come!

    I've been on a couple of week long cruises - love, love, loved them! If I hadn't eeded to keep my job (and since the cruises won't let my little cats & dogs on the ship), i could have just stayed on, cruising forever. Pampering to the max. Glad you had a good time!

    It sounds like you had an amazing time! My fiance and I are getting married in Jamaica this July. We are looking forward to a good time! We were going to take a cruise and dock and get married, but it was too expensive. I think if your just taking a cruise the expense isn't too bad and it sounds like from what your saying, they have good food and good entertainment!
    By the way, good job on only gaining 4 lbs the entire time you were there! Have a great day and stay motivated!
