We got back Sunday night after a great week on the ship. We had a fun time, good food, entertainment and activities and rest and sun. The seas were very calm or at least the ship didn't have much movement up or down or roll. We left Galveston, Texas on Sunday at 5 pm. Tuesday morning we were at Cozemel, Mexico. We had scheduled a three reef snorkeling boat trip and it was cancelled due to rough waves. We just hung out at a nice beach and swam and mom got carried away with the occasion and got a tattoo. I call her the gecko mama now. We sailed all night and got to the Grand Cayman Island the next morning. You can see the picture of the surf pounding the dock where the cruse ships normally docked. Yes the government closed all the water activities. I was so bummed. I have been waiting 15 years to get the Grand Cayman and swim with the stingrays. The dive shop I worked at in Orem put a trip together every summer and flew to the Caymans and did the stingray city dive and other dives around the island. So the closest I got to stingrays was the iron sculpture in the picture. The next morning we docked at Jamaca (Montego Bay). Got off the boat and the harbor master cancelled all water sports and so we didn't get to go snorkeling there either. Hung out at the beach and had lunch and did some shopping. Lot's of Bob Marley stuff for sale. Other than the snorkeling fiasco the trip was wonderful and mom liked it a lot and wants to go again.
