Many times they had bouquets like this one at the meals.
I took many pictures of the wakes. We were going about 20 knots most of the trip and the water was a beautiful blue.
This was one of many many different mosaic fish that were on the columns by one of the four swimming pools. I loved looking at these mosaics and the floor tiles and fancy carpeting as well as stained glass accents. It was really a beautiful ship!
The food was unbelievable besides the shear amount of it. Here is the gang at dinner one , night. My best friend from high school Vicki is the one on the far left -- she invited me on this trip after one of the ladies planning on coming dropped out. I am the second from the left. Mary Ellen and Marjie make up the group. The three ladies I with whom I went are all members of the same bridge group down in Florida. Needless to say, playing bridge made the hours we were at sea just fly by! We played bridge a lot (I learned a lot an hopefully will be better this spring when Vicki comes up here for the sectional tournament) and played a game called Hand and Foot (Canasta on steroids). And the rest of the time we just lazed and ate and ate and ate!! I also took the opportunity to go to the geology lectures which took place most days we were at sea. They were a bit over my head but did give us a lot of information on tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes and tectonic plates which helped us to understand what we would be seeing in Hawaii and why the islands are each quite different.
