We did it!

On June 1st, many of us began the trek to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Some flew and some drove down, but we all were planning to meet the next morning, June 2nd and climb aboard the Allure of the Seas.

Those that flew in Saturday, Lee and I, Sherrie and Leo and Stef and Rick all met by the pool at the Embassy Suites to catch up on our tans before we sailed. Then we met Rick's sister and his nieces for dinner Saturday night and picked up a few bottles of wine (and a few cigars)for the cruise.

The next morning, we were whisked over to the pier at 10:30 a.m. and hooked up with the others who were joining us, Nina and George with their kids, Julia and Ben along with Jennifer and Guido. We had a last minute addition to our crew, a friend of Guido's, Bill. He arrived with Jennifer and Guido. That left only Barb and Bob who were already in Florida at their second home in Sebring. They joined us aboard the ship.

Once aboard, we all headed to the bar and the week began. After a quick lunch at the Park Cafe, we dropped all of our bags in each of our rooms and began to explore. At 4:00 p.m. we had a Muster Drill and then set off to Deck 14 forward on the port side for sail away. The weather was a bit cloudy but we did not care. As the Allure slowly left the pier, we found our places at the rail and watched as we sailed down the channel and into the open sea. NOW WE ARE ON A CRUISE!

Cruise Pictures

Yes we have them, but we are trying to bring together everyone's pics so we can all see them. We hope to have that done soon.

Want to join us on our next cruise?

You can and it is easy. Over the next several months we will be planning a possible short cruise just after Thanksgiving. It will be 3 or 4 days, just enough time to slake our thirst for the sea. But it will be a cruise. Stay tuned here to see what happens and learn how you can join us.
