Talking Merry Christmas Honey!

To my girlfriend of over 7 years, in about 2 days and a few hours from now you will finally know what I got you for Christmas.

For everyone here, her gift is in my signature !

Winter sucks donkey balls in Manitoba, Canada. We're outta here for another week !

I will try to get to you my friend.

This was a last minute decision in my buying this cruise, so I didn't have time to do the usual research I typically do on the ship / ports. We have been to both Grand Cayman and Jamaica before, but not the Florida keys. We may or may not do shore excursions this time around. We may do a little walk around the ports, but that might be it.

I do suggest you buy yourself a Tortuga rum cake. You might be able to sample it on the ship in the gift store, then compare the ship price to the land price in Grand Cayman.

WRT the ship, Freedom is a sister ship to both Valor and Liberty which I have been on before, the floor plans are identical, but the theme will be different of course.

If anything stands out as being a superior must do, I will get back to you when we come back.

Hopefully Santa will read this and take the hint for many! For people who do enjoy cruising (and we do) I would think this would be the ultimate, unexpected surprise Christmas gift. Especially, if once they know about it, there isn't much wait time left. We will leave here exactly 2 weeks after Christmas Day.

I'm feeling a little extra Christmasy this year!

Merry Christmas everyone.

Have a Merry Christmas and enjoy your next cruise. Although it's been cool here in SW Florida, it's still warmer than Manitoba.

! Usually this time of year we are hovering around -40 here! (Conversion note, -40 Celcius = -40 Fareenheit)

Not bad here today at -10C which is unseasonably warm, so if it's above freezing in the south, and there's none of that white crap falling out of the sky, I'm a happy camper !

Merry Christmas to you as well.

Thanx everyone!

The gift went over well, but at first she didn't believe me. Then, she thought it was for January of 2012. As the day went on, it seemed to sink in. !

Less than 2 weeks to go!

Now, Happy New Year everyone !
