Confusing?

I'm confused after showing you my cruise. It happens every time I finish my cruise. I'm not sure what write my post. I guess it's post cruise feelings because I just want to go back on another cruise. My friend  is on his cruise at the moment and I wish I was there. I must be cruise crazy.  Oh well.


                        In St. Maarten.

Shovel the Snow

Father: I thought I asked you to go out and shovel the snow off the driveway.
Blonde Son: You did, I'm on my way.
Father: But you only have one boot on.
Blonde Son: Well, there's only one foot of snow.

              --------------------------------- 

911

Q: Why can't the blonde dial 911?

A: She can't find the eleven.

                      -----------------------------

I think that's enough for now. I think I'm getting my groove back again. See ya for now

After St. Maarten, Home Sweet Home

Well, the 2019 cruise is nearly done. Two days and we'll be back into Fort Lauderdale . It's amazing that we've been on the Reflection twice and I still have many areas that I've never been on. Well, we'll have the chance to find these areas because we've already arranged for next year's cruise on the Reflection. 



For the next two days we or should I say me will be sitting here, looking at the sea and just watching people running past me. Tonight will be the second fancy night, maybe not as fancy but still great. We've enjoyed having our dinners in the Opus Restaurant. Our waiters were,



We rarely saw of Madalina because Mary Lou & I drink but we saw Valentin & Riki every night.

Valentin was a wonderful waiter that was easy to speak with & he made sure that we were satisfied while we were there. I spoke to him about how long he has been working for Celebrity and he said 6 years but after this time he plans on taking his family to Canada hopefully living in Toronto. Here's a photo with him & Mary Lou.


Riki, the assistant waiter would be at our table quickly when we needed more water and explaining the three types of butter they had on the table each night and each night they were different. I think I ate more bread & breadsticks because I wanted to try each and every different types of butters.


Did you notice Riki's smile. Well it was like that throughout the night.

                             ------------------------------------

Our final day was resting and putting all of the materials to be put into our luggage because it had to placed outside of our door earlier because we paid a little extra to have our luggage taken to the airport and we wouldn't see the luggage until we arrive in Detroit. Much easier especially for me.


It looks like God was saying to us, see, I took care of you and your cruise was everything that you asked of me. Which he did. What a cruise.

Our last dinner was wonderful. Here are a couple photos of the Opus Restaurant.


After enjoying a wonderful dinner Valentin asked what we wanted for dessert but he we said anything he said I know what you both would like. So I said OK, you bring us what you think we would like and this was what he brought to us.

                                               Tiramisu
                                     and it was fantastic.



After before we left the Opus, I gave Valentin & Riki an envelope of thanks for they gave us a wonderful dinner every night. They thanked me & Mary Lou and we left.

That's our 2019 Caribbean Cruise on the Celebrity Reflection. One thing I always put in my photo book at the end and it's this.


Thank you friends for going along our cruise. See you next year when we leave for our 2020  11 day Caribbean Cruise.
See ya.

Continue The Cruise

Good morning everyone. I keep saying the same statement. How's this.
Buongiorno amici. Today is an island that I went to for my first cruise and that is.....

ST. MAARTEN


St. Maarten was destroyed by a hurricane but today it has picked itself up and I'm happy to be here again.

This is the back part of our ship and after turning I had a nice lady take our photo, now that we were on St. Maarten


I'm just going to show the photos and I might place a comment here and there as we walk around.

I told Mary Lou just to stand near this character who was turning his penis out but as you see, she wanted to show me that she's still in control. Ha,ha,ha.
 What beautiful flower and yes, there are washrooms on the island of which I needed. Excuse me for a moment.

This cutout pointed out where to buy which we did. Something to drink and I bought a cowboy hat. 
While we were sitting down having a drink, my favorite travel agent and friend Nancy and her husband Edger passed by and sat with us for a few minutes. Soon they left us to walk around the area and the two of us were ready to go back on to the ship. Before we left Mary Lou needed to buy new  reading glasses. Last night going to dinner I placed her old ones in my pocket and as I sat down to dinner, I broke them in two. Here are her new ones and I really like them.

While back on the ship I took some photos of St. Maarten today.

Yes, I do hope to visit St. Maarten again in the future.

Tomorrow and Sunday are sea days. I'll have a final story about our cruise later. See ya then.

St. Lucia & St. Kitt

Good morning friends. The sun is shining out bright but it's very cold in Amherstburg.There are two islands that were on my cruise, St. Lucia & St. Kitt. These two island were my first island that were on my first cruise, 2007. 

St. Lucia





These are the three piers that cruise ships land. My first cruise the Carnival Legend landed on the Industrial Port but this time the Celebrity Reflection landed on Pointe Seraphine.

Mary Lou was leaving the ship with two friends from our group. They were going to on a another boat to see some whales, and other animals in the water and other things. Her friends were Bonnie
and Phylis
After they arrived back on the ship they informed me about a funny thing that occurred on the boat. 


The boat was really rocking and one moment Phylis fell over on to Mary Lou. These three just couldn't stop laughing about it. 
While they were having there fun I took some photos. I didn't go off the ship. Here's the photos.



The Costa Magica was on the Industrial port opposite us.

Here is St. Lucia

Good bye from St. Lucia.

St. Kitt


Our ship was on the left. people are now debarking off the ships.They are entering St. Kitt.



We had some time before our excursion so I took a  photo.




We were then put on to small buses to go to the train station.
It wasn't much of a station. It was out in the field but here is the St. Kitt's Scenic Railway.
Most of the people decided to go up top but we went inside.
They gave us treats while on the train and had singers going to each car.
We went around the island. You saw some poor homes and good homes 



We were near the ocean again meaning that we were near our ship. 
After this educational excursion, We had only one more island and then back towards Fort Lauderdale.
Tomorrow, St. Maarten, the island that was destroyed my Hurricane Maria. We were suppose to have an excursion but later we told that that excursion would no longer be available do to the hurricane. See you later.
