Planes, trains, and automobiles...and a big boat

My husband and I recently came back from our honeymoon, during which we went on our first cruise!  The entire trip was a real adventure.

We drove to Denver to stay the night before flying to Atlanta.  We rented the smallest car I've ever driven, a Ford Focus, and drove to Charleston, SC where we would be meeting our cruise ship.


We stayed the night in Charleston and ate breakfast at the Waffle House.  We have a Waffle House an hour north of us, but I think they are so much better in the South!  As my friend Rosemary puts it, they really know how to use grease!


Next we got on our cruse ship!  We took a cruise on the Carnival Fantasy.  Hubby thought it was really big, but we realized when we saw other cruise ships docked in the Bahamas that it was a pretty small ship.

   

We spent Valentine's Day on the ship.  They had a fancy dinner and we ate delicious lobster.  I think one of my favorite parts of the cruise was trying so much different food!!  I love the shirt Hubby is wearing in this picture.  I picked it out for him from Kohls and thinks he looks sooo good in blue.


I would really recommend a cruise.  I think in the end it was a great deal, especially since we tried to watch where our money was going.  The most expensive thing we did was our shore excursion in Freeport, which was $90 per person and totally worth it, but more about that in another post.

love and coffee,
Lulu
