Didn't Wanna....but We're Back..

Our Panama Canal cruise was a very beautiful trip. We're back home to reality now and we even had snowflakes in the air this morning! The weather on our trip was perfect and such a treat. It was wonderful....and in Jamaica this is how far away we were from Toronto and New York.
The Coral Princess was a lovely ship...with much finery...

The colour and lovely decor followed throughout...



Amazing to look at this picture and then wonder where the 3000 passengers and crew were right now. The ship was large enough and there was plenty of room and places to spend quiet time. This area wasn't always this quiet naturally...


We travelled with great friends, a total of 10 couples. This picture isn't clear unfortunately and one couple is missing from this picture. This was taken in the diningroom on the night of our 2nd formal.


Here 4 couples got together in the hall for the first formal. Marc and I are on the far left.

A picture of us getting ready for the first formal. We all took a lot of pictures which we'll be able to share of each occasion.


This is Claudio our maitre' d in a picture with me. He worked so hard to ensure everything was fabulous in the diningroom. Whether we ate in there for breakfast or lunch or whether our group was the last one out at 10:00 p.m he was there.



The meals in the diningroom were delicious and the presentation amazing....

Everything was delicious....


The menu had such a great variety of foods. There was always something different and included pheasant, lamb in a variety of mouth watering dishes prepared in new recipes to us.

I will share more pictures and beauty with you. During the trip it felt like we had been away forever which is a good way to be feeling on vacation. Then suddenly it was time to leave and none of us wanted. Whoever wants to leave a good time.

I hope you have all been well. I've been busy doing the regular washing and putting away and cleaning up cat fur..*g* since being back. Since we've been back home Marc and I have had "sea legs". Moving about we could "feel" rocking as we had on the ship. We didn't have this after the first cruise so its rather strange. I seem to be better today.


I look forward to catching up on my blog reading. Have a wonderful Sunday... Judi xoxo

Oh, Judi, you lucky duck! I think that I am jealous. What a delightful trip.

Happy Easter, my blogging friend.
