Oh my word…….where does one begin??? I have no words to explain this amazing experience. Sun, sea, zodiac rides, sexy Italian sailors, food, food, food, cocktails, beaches, 5 star treatment, gorgeous sunsets, even more amazing sunrises, dancing until the sun comes up and great company……what more could a girl possibly ask for?? Not much really:)
I’m not going to go into the details of the trip…there is just too much and too little blog space. So, I’ve decided to tell the story with the help of a couple of pictures. We hardly slept at all the entire time we were on the boat. Opting rather to dance either under the stars or in the club. Luckily, none of our little group of friends suffered from motion sickness…….this obviously enhanced the experience:)
The food was superb! And I swear it felt as if we were eating the whole time. The day started with breakfast buffet, then a “Late risers” buffet, then teatime, then a lunch buffet, then “High tea” and then a 7 course dinner…..which was quite a fancy affair.
Everybody came back weighing ever so slightly more than when we actually went on board……I suppose it could be blamed on the combination of food and cocktails. But that’s what new year exercising regimes are for right?
The sailors were mostly Italian and definitely lived up to their reputation….*wink wink*. My “Stolen Kiss” happened to be the “Pilot” of the ship, and was brave enough to smuggle me onto the captain’s bridge on the last morning to watch the sunrise from there…it was absolutely amazing!!! And believe it or not, I still chat to him on a regular basis…or whenever he has access to the Internet.
We came back with heavy hearts, tanned bodies and a million pictures and memories. Here are a couple of pictures to wet your appetite:)
