Back from the Caribbean Cruise

Carnival FantasyCelebrating our 51st wedding anniversary — no tea party for us! We liked cruising with our new Alabama friends so much last year, we decided to do it again.

We were on the Carnival Fantasy cruise ship when it departed from Mobile on January 16, but it did not leave at 4 P.M. as scheduled. I think it actually started moving out of Mobile Bay something like 9 P.M. Fog was the problem and other bad weather. Some people reported they saw the Dauphin Island and Fort Morgan area way after midnight. By the time we all got on the ship, we were all so exhausted from endless waiting, very little enjoyment was part of Saturday. But things improved considerably on Sunday.

The original itinerary of this cruise was altered so that both Sunday and Monday were fun days at sea and the port of call of Progreso, was eliminated altogether. We did go ashore in Cozumel, Mexico on Tuesday. Wednesday was another fun day at sea, and we arrived in Mobile on Thursday later than expected — arriving back in Magnolia Springs about mid-afternoon.

We have posted 248 photos and a video of the cruise at Western Caribbean Cruise 2010 on Webshots. If anyone objects to their photo being there, just let me know and it will be promptly removed.
