Gambled: We each bet a dollar and lost all of it. Dave did, although, bet another dollar when we flew through Vegas and won 60 cents. You better believe he cashed out.
Gambling for dummies!
Ate, a lot: Usually a light breakfast, a big breakfast, light lunch, big dinner, and maybe some ice cream. :)
Partied: Well, we attended one party, anyway.
Dressed up: I have no idea why I had to dress up just for dinner.
My $5 dress from H&M.
Imbibed: We tried a whole plethora of martinis.
Today is the last post about the cruise so I guess it's time to give my thoughts. Um, well, it was okay. Yeah, just okay. I have a theory that you cannot claim you've visited a state if you never leave the airport in that state. I kinda feel the same way about cruising. To me, I have a hard time claiming I've been to Mexico. In Puerto Vallarta, I never left the gated area of the cruise ship dock. In Cabo, we never left the boardwalk. In Ensenada, we were on a tour bus. For me, it took the adventure out of vacation. If you didn't figure it out from the title of my first post, yes we were on "The Love Boat": Princess Cruise Lines. Now, I knew Carnival was considered the party cruise line, but I didn't know that Princess was considered, um, how should I say this correctly?, the elderly cruise line. I kid you not, it seemed that the average age on the ship was 60. We had heard jokes before we left saying, don't trip over everyone's walkers and rascal scooters and I swear, they were everywhere. One night we went to the martini bar, at 9:00pm, and there were five people asleep listening to the music. My favorite was the man beside us who was not only asleep, but snoring, and he would wake up and applaud at the end of each song. Seriously. So, will I ever cruise again. Probably, just not on Princess. And I'd have to be very selective about where I go, how long the cruise is, and what I (we) would do. Dave and I have taken fantastic vacations with a lot of planning and thought. This cruise just didn't seem "us". Oh well. It was time away from the cold and snow and gave us a little R&R. Now onto planning the next adventure....
