Default Greetings from Iowa... Ugh! I'm back! End of Pride 3/16 tr

Good day to all. Yes... alas... I'm have returned from the lovely carribean to beautiful Iowa (temperature is 32 degrees with 1-2 inches of snow being rumored). Still, it is nice to return. It's so peaceful here. Very uncrowded and unhurried! I fell in love with the diving in Cozumel. WWOOOWWW! I had only snorkeled there once before. I'm very impressed. Would have loved to do a night dive. Bubbles went out for Divetex and Cruisecam as per your request. The excellent news is that we gave up our seats twice and comped $2400.00 in free airfare, plus got first class seats for the family from Miami to Chicago. Landed one day late, full of food, and am already thinking about my next cruise. Airfare will NOT be a problem. This is our third year in a row of getting free air. Another nice plus to living in a small airport location. Few flights means mass overbooking much to our benefit. Well, I join the working world tomorrow... so until Divetex photo...

P.S. I feel "boat". Anybody else ever get that? 1st cruise and this one only. Not on the 2nd. It was very rough this trip (though we rarely felt it!)

P.S.S. Divetex... Belize suggestion... hire a small boat operator to take the grandkids out to a local atoll. We stopped there between dives to have lunch. A little piece of sand all to ourselves. No other known beaches that we found. Sorry!

Hey, Kym, welcome home, and back to the world of reality. Yeah, right. Ain't it great? Thanks so much for the recommendation for Belize. What you suggest is probably what we'll do. Congrats on the free air, too!

Back Kym!

You sure made out well with the air, good for you. I've always wanted to be able to do that, but always in a rush to catch a boat :-) Your cruise sounds like it was a great time!

So, are you almost ready to book the next one?
