Oh my gosh! The cruise was truly one of the most amazing weeks of our lives. All of the pictures have been uploaded but I haven't had time to put descriptions on them yet. Plus, I made several (not-very-good) videos that I'll have uploaded soon. I can't tell you how sad we were to leave the Westerdam this morning in Fort Lauderdale. We are in a hotel near the Miami Airport now and fly home tomorrow. Holland America is definitely a premium cruise line. All of our expectations were exceeded. We lacked for nothing. No cell phones, no email, no driving, no cooking (except the cooking class that I took from one of the executive chefs on board). We just relaxed, had plenty of Mojitos and Pina Coladas, swam with stingrays and dolphins, and saw some of the most amazing Broadway-quality shows in the theater each evening. We were in the youngest 10% of those on board which made us feel pretty darned good. We saw a few other gay people and actually met a very nice couple from the Philadelphia area. The ship cruised along at around 20 knots for our more than 3,000 miles at sea. We cruised around the ship at about 1 knot on our way to dinner each evening and about .0000001 knot after dinner. Between the older folks who did everything except move very fast and the huge unbelievable meals in the dining room each evening, we didn't move very quickly! Missed my blogging friends and am looking forward to catching up throughout this week. Cheers! Anybody up for a cruise sometime? We're already looking!
