The Girls Take to the High Seas!
For the second year, we organized our Girls Cruise. Bill opted out of this trip (I wonder why?) and Joan hosted more than 70 women from across the county.

This was a special trip because two of the cruisers were our daughters – Kay & Maria. Kay traveled all the way from Indianapolis. Maria lives in the Jacksonville area. All of us met in Port Canaveral and we spent three fun days on Royal Caribbean’s Sovereign of the Seas.

This ship is special. Two years ago, it underwent a complete renovation. Its face lift was fabulous. The public areas are warm and welcoming. The ship now boasts a Johnny Rockets, Seattle’s Best Coffee and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream.

Our itinerary kept us moving during the three days. The first stop was Nassau. Even though the weather was rainy and gray, it didn’t damp the spirits of these women. Almost everyone got off the ship and explored the famous straw market or toured the beautiful Atlantis Resort. Our second stop was Cocoa Cay – Royal Caribbean’s private island. The sun shinned on the group as they enjoyed a day of swimming, sunning and snorkeling.

The food on this trip was incredible! Each night at dinner, everyone raved about the delicious five-course meals and excellent service. The casual dining area has a variety of stations where diners can sample foods from around the world. Our favorite was the pesto mashed potatoes!

If you’re looking for a relaxing three or four days away, then consider a trip on this ship. The food, service and stops make it the perfect escape – if only for a few days.
