Hey guys, I didn't participate here much but I followed along a bit. We had a great cruise and my mom and I met a few of you by chance.

I too got sick. I started feeling ill in Tortola, just a sore throat and a head ache and it didn't progress much further than that while on the ship. The last night though I was definitely starting to lose my voice. Saturday I could barely speak, sounded like an old lady! Also very congested and lots of build-up in my throat. Luckily for me I am now all better although now Mom has come down with it!

People don't notice me taking pictures with the Canon D10

We were trying out the D10 in as many water situations as we could in order to get a better understanding of the camera's capabilities, including the adult pool. More pictures to come.

No flu, Just Blue, too

We flew (traveled on airplanes - notorious for recycled, germy air), scuba, snorkeled, hot tubbed, shared a category 11 with 4 adults in close quarters, didn't ALWAYS take the disinfectant wipe at the restaurant door, and were all over the ship - except the kid areas. None of us are sick. Count us "No flu, just blue," too.

Nobody sick here, either. Just working too much. Had to jump back into it the day after we got back, and haven't slowed down yet.

Nope, we lucked out, we didn't get sick....just depressed being back from that spectacular week!

I hate to say we missed that first night at the Rockin' Bar D with Match Your Mate and all. The ship was doing a little bit too much rocking for me to go there. So at dinner I excused myself and went back to the stateroom. I was bummed because the D is our nighttime hang out on our cruises. We are depressed having left David, DJ Mike, Oscar (our favorite tennis player!!), Ari, Max, etc.....everything from the food, the staff, characters, being with friends again, OMG and that HYPNOSIS show in the D!! One of my personal faves!!! It was great!!

Thanks DCL, see ya June 2010!!!

Vodka Martini Testing

Pictures first, details later...

This was the second martini tasking - the first involved gin - I didn't even know there were two different ones (not that it would have mattered - I don't really like gin any more than vodka). I did this more for the experience than from any love of vodka or martinis - as a matter of fact, they taste smell like the alcohol we used to keep under the bathroom sink to clean blemishes - made me want to find a rag and start cleaning paint off the floor.

The CM conducting the tasting..... very proud of her Polish heritage and vodka!!






The complement of martinis, shakers etc.






First martini - classic, with olive - one sip was enough for me (no offense, just personal taste)






Cosmo martini - this I could drink






The remaining two - one was a "toblerone" martini, including Baileys, Kahlua, Godiva (this was most edible) and the other was citrusy, contained lemoncella (sp?) - pretty good.

In short, I enjoyed the experience, but am not a martini convert (would never choose one over wine).

My once-every-30-years luck broke through the barrier this day - I won two things. In my left hand, a tropical martini (at that point, without a place mat to provide cues, I couldn't tell you what was in it) - which I WON - by answering this question - "What is the best martini?". The presumed correct answer (for all the tastings) is "The one you like." I prefer my answer, which was "THAT ONE!!".

In left hand (on the right side of the picture) is one of 4 promotional backpacks given out during a presentation by the directing animator of "Up" (Dave Mullins - different, upcoming thread). I walked in during the last 5 minutes of the presentation (had gone to one earlier in the week), received a raffle ticket, won, got it signed by Dave and made it to the martini tasting only a couple of minutes late!!




There, now you know what the person behind the camera looks like - a tad overweight, slightly inebriated!!


The experience was fun, reasonable, I recommend it is if fits into your interests and schedule. $12

Your whole review of the martini tasting made me laugh. I think it is just so funny. Congrats on the 2 winnings! Wish I had been there. Saw that they were happening, but just did not sign up for them. I had an appletini twice- (my 1st ever) and every night at dinner I would try one of their special drinks. My favorite was the appletini cosmo. Much more appealing than just the appletini (which I did manage to choke down lol.)

We were at that martini tasting! I guess we never met, so I didn't realize that was you that won. Bruce & I were at a table in the middle of the room not far from you. Congrats on the wins that day!

Is it ok if I "steal" a few of your martini tasting pics? Mine didn't come out so well.
