Post by: luise.volta on April 13, 2013, 08:16:12 pm

What a wonderful time I have had trying to set up my perfect imaginary cruise!!  Should I go to the Bahamas? Sailing? Visit the pyramids in South America?  Scuba dive? Australia?  And then I decided that since it is imaginary I could do them all!!  I think my imaginary boat will even take me to the Grand Canyon!!  When do we start???

 :D So far , I think this one is slated for over Mother's Day weekend. We can leave port anything before that and stay out as long as we wish, of course. It's our choice. I see us sitting in the forward lounge that I remember on the small ship cruise I took to Alaska, twice...enjoying the view and conversation and perhaps snacks and beverages.  :D

Oh, yes - definitely snacks and beverages, lol!  And live music!  Actually, my dream vacation is days of crocheting and needlework, interspersed with hikes and sight-seeing, so a cruise would be perfect!

If you are looking for me on the cruise, I will be in the spa.  Massages and gentle music and a massage therapist who looks like George Clooney.

And since we are all dressed up for dinner, let's have a lot of nice looking gentlemen who can dance with us - 2 bands, one playing big band music so we can ballroom dance and another playing all that great dance music from the 60's and 70's.

I see us in our deck chairs, sipping on fruity Sangrias, and feeling a little bit tipsy. Wide-brimmed floppy sunhats are plopped on top of our heads. Through kinky sunglasses we admire our freshly manicured bright red toe nails.

The tasty salt air tantalizes our tongues, as we lazily watch sun rays playing on the crests of foamy, but slow peaceful waves.

We're laughing, feeling fuzzy warmth from our drinks. We're living in the moment. Our past lives have disappeared in a foggy vague memory of way long ago.

One of us just cracked a joke. We're belly laughing. Tears of merriment are rolling down our cheeks.

We feel understood, we understand, we have left all hurt, disappointments and loss behind. We have let go. We are living to simply enjoy ourselves and each other. Life is good.

I'm going but I'm making my plan right now on how to tie up the DJ and take over his booth on the Lido deck.  I want all upbeat, oldies music from the 50-60-70-80's years and none of that rap stuff.  I'll throw in a little reggae to keep everything nautical and islandy (is that a word?).   

Yes, I am planning a complete throw-over of the DJ for all of our musical enjoyment :)

I'm looking at the floor plan of the cruise ship and the descriptions in the brochure. Wow! A whole "Magic" deck where anything thing we want to happen does happen. OMG! I may be in there instead of my private suite with a balcony, if anyone is looking for me. It says...we can drop weight, pick up a new wardrobe, date our hero there. Whatever! Lets see...130 pounds , in new Alfred Dunners with Jimmy Stewart, I think. Well, for the first day...

I was worried about that because I have always had a problem with seasickness... However, I was just reading in the brochure that this ship has ultra sized stabilizers and you can hardly feel it rock... PLUS... a special additive is placed in the air filters that prevents any and all motion sickness.. so it won't be a problem at all.

And the good news is that if you do start feeling a bit queasy, the ship Doctor, who looks like a younger Sean Connery but has the voice of James Earl Jones, has an immediate cure that works instantly and then will check in on you the rest of the cruise. :)

You sign up for the massage here.  :D  I just handled it by checking Amenities..."Yes." Then I will pick and choose unless I get so attached to my private deck and room service that I don't venture forth. Oh, silly me, I can have the massage in my suite!  I'm really getting excited! See 'ya! :D :D

I have made arrangements with the Captain for a very special private Mother's Day Brunch.  He will have all his officials there.  They will honor any requests we have.  I know that bunch is probably pretty staid, but after the Brunch, we will find some of the good time boys to really have fun with.  Oh, by the way, it is a Champagne Brunch!  Bon Voyage to us all.

I wanted to attend an important wedding so I was late for the ship.  My wonderful life delivered a gorgeous chopper and pilot to drop me on ship so I will arrive in an hour or so. I'm looking forward to our first port of call and the wonderful  open air market at which we will find great art objects and fabrics at unbelievably reasonable prices to take home with us and transform a corner of our worlds to remind us of the fun cruise we took together. Meanwhile the pampering team on board will be readying our massage tables and assigning the hair and makeup artists to transform us into divas for our first night dinner and dance with the captain and handsome escorts of our choosing. I think the chopper is just landing here so I will see you soon....

Great idea!!!   Then when any one of us are having "one of those days"  we can just say we are needing a little cruise time.. and it will be understood that we are headed out to the ship.   ;)

I'm so ready for something tall and cold. :P  Looks like everyone has been enjoying themselves... ;D  It's been a rough week ladies and I missed the boat but I caught a copter courtesy of Ms. Luise and I am ready to rock and roll.  Oh, I see everyone going into the dining room.  Everyone looks so refreshed and relaxed in their tropical island wear!  See you all after I freshen up!!!  8)

HI!   Finally made it on board!  I actually had to "unpack" some baggage to get here.  I've decided to travel light and just enjoy the trip.  I'm getting a massage.. a much needed Mani Pedi..a nap.. and then off to join Louise and all my other friends for an evening of fun conversation and laughter..  See you in a few hours!

Oh, wonderful, Nik. I would just love to lounge on our private balconies with our pups and share our hearts out...call room service for a no-cal root beer float (for me)...maybe break for massages? What should I order for you?

I wonder where Pooh is? The last I heard, she was taking the Duty Free Shoppe by storm. I bought a ton of sweatshirts and Tees there!  :D

Got to missing my pooches too... So I've flown in my little Shih Tzu Monroe to join the doggie group..  The other two are just to rambunctious for this relaxing place..  Monroe will be happy to relax on one of our laps and be petted all day.  When we are tired of him... He'll just find a spot to sleep..  lol!!

It's so lovely on the main deck by moonlight!  Enjoying a tall, cool spiked lemonade while sitting here looking at the stars, watching the lights dance on the water, and feeling the breeze on my toes.  Bliss!

'Tis a mystery, E.! I am so crazy about having my own balcony that I'm having room service bring me breakfast out here again. Our no-cal menu with all my favorites knocks my socks off!  8)

Sorry, I forgot I had a doctor appointment with the new Rheumy I have been waiting for five months to get into, so had to leave the ship quick, jump on the helicopter and hurry to make the appointment.

So I've been spending the week away, getting my head back on straight before I could come back and have some fun.  In my infinite wisdom, I brought my cat since you guys were having so much fun with your pups and as soon as I stepped onto the ship, she could the smell of "doggie" and took off at a full run!  So I'm checking around the ship for her now and all the crew members are helping. 

P.S.

I wouldn't advise looking into people's cabins when you walk by......

I hear she was last seen in the kitchen where they were cleaning fresh-caught tuna.  8)

I bet she's making friends with my cats and coming up with a cunning plan to trip the sous-chef as he carries the heaping plate of tuna steaks across the kitchen.  They are champion trippers, so I'm sure we'll be seeing three fat, sassy and slightly fragrant kitties sunning themselves pretty soon.

Ha ha...my cat likes tuna...not out of the can...it has to be out of the foil pack!   She's so picky.  Anddddd....that's always when she decides to get up in my face and give me a kiss! Blech.....
