Cruisin’

You may remember this post over 1.5 years ago when I announced that we were going on a cruise to Mexico to celebrate my graduation in May 2009. Well…because of the lovely swine flu outbreak originating in Mexico in the Spring of 2009, our cruise was redirected to San Francisco. We really didn’t want to go to San Fran when we had been there before and were looking forward to going to Mexico.

Anyway, we opted to get a cruise credit and we had until the end of 2010 to use it. At the time it seemed like forever away, but now that is almost here! Craziness. Soooo we are finally going to go on our cruise December 12-19! We are so excited and we really just have to pay to get to Long Beach and for cruise excursions, etc.akumal_02             So we are going to be lovin’ life and soaking up some sun in Mexico in a few months!b9dddeee-4c2d-4655-807b-f88466179bdf                I might go on a starvation diet before the cruise so I don’t feel guilty about eating all day :)lido_grill_lg             I’m sure we will be shoving small children out of our way to go down the slide on the boat.slide_lg               I plan on sitting here and reading my book and drinking diet coke (if we decide to buy a soda card…what a rip off!).serenity_lg           Maybe we’ll do some of this? Any tips or advice is much appreciate! Let me know if you have any suggestions about shopping, excursions, and cruises in general!Quintana Roo, Riviera Maya, Parasailing - Photo by Riviera Maya               So while the rest of you are enjoying this December 12-19…Snow-storm              We will be enjoying this…travel-business-hammock-beach1

Hey what cruise are you going on?! I'm sad we couldn't all do the same one :-(

That's SO FUNNY! Steve and I are going to be on our cruise the exact same time! We are going to the Bahama's though.
You will have a blast!

My advice to you...don't go on a diet. You'll be the skinniest gal on the boat even if you gain 20 pounds before then. AND I promise - you won't even come close to the one that is eating the most. Many people go on cruises and NEVER leave the ship. You'll find this out pretty fast.
Other piece of advice...putting out the DO NOT DISTURB sign is not enough to keep out housecleaning. ALWAYS lock the door too. He he he. We learned that one from experience. :)
You will have tons of fun!

I appreciate your desire to make me jealous. I am jealous that you get to go to Mexico-- but I will not be suffering in the snow this year. :)

You'll love the cruise. I promise it's worth the wait. I think winter is the best time to cruise. I think the best thing about the cruise is the excursions. I highly suggest zip-lining. So so so much fun.

You are making me jealous! I'm glad that you can go now and missing a little bit of the snow that makes it even better!

SO fun! Whatever you do, do not buy any of the excursions through the cruise lines. We got to do WAY more by planning everything ourselves and saved about $2000. Not even exaggerating. Have fun!
