Cruising Mexico 2017 – Day 3 / Sea Day 2 – The formal ocean

It might seem strange but one of the funnest “little” things about the cruise is that there is almost always mail at your door. Every morning and night at least, there is something new. Little fliers advertising events not to mention the daily “Princess Patter”. The only downside is that they don’t give you the days Patter until about 11pm the night before.

Viva Las Vegas

I made it! Home that is. I survived my very first trip to Las Vegas. I know, I know, “everyone” has been to Vegas. I guess I’m just a stick in the mud, and/or I lived in Northern Nevada for 6 years which means I could gamble, drink, shoot guns, and check out strip clubs all I wanted. Visiting Vegas was fascinating and I thought it warranted sharing my fresh...
