Almost a week after we returned home I am still recuperating, it takes us old folks a bit longer to bounce back, of course a part of me is still on the cruise and who wants to do housework after a vacation? I am not ready yet to focus on housecleaning after being pampered and spoiled for 6 days, so I am still putting my laundry away, and I can also start writing love notes in my dust around the house. If only I could have brought home my cabin steward from the cruise!
So here I sit back in the reality of every day life getting motivated into my normal routine. The memories of last week are not fading, instead I am re-energized from the wonderful time we had.
Not even a week ago we arrived at Pier 90 in New York Harbor and boarded the Carnival Cruise Ship Glory. Although the decor was not our taste, the ship is indeed clean and colorful and like the ad states – fun. I cannot say enough of the staff, they made our trip comfortable and treated us like royalty.
Our first day we enjoyed the view from the Lido deck and as luck would have it we were docked next to the USS Intrepid. We also enjoyed the views of the Manhattan Skyline and God’s magnificent creation with a delightful display of clouds over the Hudson River. That would only be one day of many witnessing God’s creation at its best.
Our time in NYC consisted of getting off the bus, being herded up to the area to be processed and onto the cruise. It all took about 3o minutes and no time to dig out the camera to take pictures of the long lines behind us or entering the cruise. Everything was well laid out and plenty of people on hand to get the line moving.
But once on board and on the Lido deck I had plenty of photo opportunities…
