On one of our cruises we were able to enjoy a meteor shower. We had no idea it was occurring and my DH and I were strolling around, arm-in-arm and wandered up to the observation deck to check out the stars. It was packed with people on deck chairs staring at the sky. So much for the romantic mood . That was O.K., though, because it was an incredible sight. I believe it was in the middle of December 2005 when we were on the Rhapsody of the Seas.

There is a broadband option for a larger version of the video if you have broadband?
