I just got back from the 5 night cruise with our group of high school senior graduates. We took the 5 night cruise out of Jacksonville to Key West & Nassau. There were 21 of us and the four in my family were the only ones that had cruised before. The water was not very cooperative during the cruise - the boat was REALLY rocking with the waves. There were so many sick people - they had those "barf" bags out everywhere...all of us had sea sick medicine and me nor my family got sick but some of the ones with us did. I have cruised twice before and I told everyone that this was so unusual...one woman I was talking with said it was her 7th cruise and she had never experienced rocking like that - even some of the staff told me the same thing - that it was really bad. I think some people thought we might sink or something. I have been on the Celebration before - so I knew that it wasn't just the ship - and then I got back to Georgia today....and the winds are about as bad here. We had a good time - it was my last time of going with a group though - I guess it takes different strokes for different folks - but going with a group just isn't for me....and it wasn't because we had the seniors because basically other than dinner time and walking around the ship - I hardly ever saw them. They did tell me that they are selling the Celebration and that it is going to Spain. I hate that. Any questions....let me know!
No they didn't offer anything special - well they did say that they had sea sick medicine at the Purser's desk - but we already had ours. I love cruising - but I really hated it for the people that had never cruised before - because they really didn't get to see how great it is when you are just sailing smoothly along and also when the sun is shining brightly when you get off the ship - of course with the cloudy skies it wasn't to hot so that was a plus!
But now that I've taken my vacation...I have nothing to look forward to this summer
