and boarded the Carnival Splendor
There is far too much to say about the trip in one post, so I'll be blogging about our fabulous vacation over the next couple of days. But, to start off - these are just some general thoughts about some of the highlights of taking a cruise.
1- YOU WORRY ABOUT NOTHING - Seriously, the biggest decision you have to make on a cruise is what drink to order. And even then, if you can't decide you just order them all. Love this.Our fabulous wait staff - these 3 dudes served us dinner every night and teased and joked with us.2 - GETTING DRESSED UP - I love an excuse to dress up, and on a cruise you can dress up for dinner every night, but especially on formal dining nights (which is when they serve all you can eat prime rib and lobster tails!)
4- DARLING TOWEL ANIMALS - It is lots of fun to come back to the state room every night where the housekeeping staff has not only turned down the bed and left a mint on your pillow, but also created adorable towel animals to decorate your room.
