Thursday January 20th we got a big snow storm, which made us a bit nervous about flying the next day. We only had small delays in Columbus and Chicago and in no time were had arrived to much better weather in LA. A little Mexican food, a big margarita, and it was bedtime the night before our cruise to Mexico. The next day we woke to great weather and a GIANT ship. After waiting in line for what seemed like forever, we were finally on the ship.

Then it was time for the safety drill at our "muster stations" or as we affectionately called it our "MUSTARD station".
Finally it was time to set sail. A final phone call to my parents, a fruity drink, a little dancing....
Remember the scavenger hunt? Well, I happened to be married to the luckiest man in the world. Lo and behold he won the biggest prize: a free martini and a free dinner for two at the Italian restaurant on board.
