What you are describing IS Yoghurt. Or actually.. a smoothie you DRINK...

NOT SOUP

If it tastes like regular yoghurt it ain't soup...

As for the fried egg....

It was a little thick, but it was so refreshing. They arent the healthiest, but it does taste good on a warm evening.

I thought that about the egg, as well until I tried it.

Tapas style dinner looked really good. Mmmm Chocolate.
All the food is good, Good thing about a cruise you can order what you want and how much you want. There are certain cruises, longer cruises that offer a midnight chocolate buffet. All the chocolate you could handle. Hmm..maybe I should suggest a bacon buffet. Or a mixture. That may do real well.

Ensanada is kinda like TJ, not quite as bad though. But all the shops carry just about carry the same thing. I was looking for a purse that I had back in the 70's, but the leather is not the same. I didnt find one. I was feeling the quality they use now, it is not the same. It was a great day. Just dont do oregeno...... There bottled vanilla is excellent by the way.

Loving your TR and have to say that my mom and two girls and myself had this exact cruise scheduled for this past President's week. But then a few weeks before I had a few people say it was pretty choppy and since I suffer from motion sickness ESP on boats I got freaked. I was afraid if I got on and felt ill I would be STUCK. So we cancelled last min and ended up going to Long Beach and we stayed on the Queen Mary.

I had seen the first part of your report and never even thought about it but was intrigued and we LOVED it!! We got lucky and were upgraded to the King George Suite and it was amazing. We took the background and ghost tours and we ate at the chowder house.

Thanks for such a detailed report because it really influenced us going there and SO glad we did.

I must ask though did you notice it being choppy at all? Does that stuff bother you or do you think you didn't notice because it doesn't? I don't know if we will ever attempt one again. I am hoping to hold out to go on one of the BIG ones in the carribean. Thinking maybe the bigger ship I might have less motion.

Welcome, you know I am not bothered by motion sickness. In fact it gives me a great nights sleep. They make so much stuff for sea sickness. The ocean is so unpredictable..Every ship we have been on , even in the caribbean the seas were fairly smooth. I enjoyed going to the caribbean. We had a 7 day cruise the last time. I would encourage you to try something for the motion and go out on a day trip and see how you do. I am glad you stayed on the Queen mary. Do you have pics on the suite? You may add them here for everyone to enjoy. If you have more questions , please feel free to ask. Thanks for stopping by. I am going to do an update tomorrow.

Thanks you!! You know it is weird I have taken Dramamine on planes and it usually works but I went out on a fishing boat and I still got EXTREMELY ill. I realize that was a LOT choppier but as I said I guess I am afraid if the dramamine DIDN'T work then I would be stuck like you said. And it is just so hard to tell if I would be "less" affected on a larger boat. I guess one of these days I will just have to try it and hope for the best. That is why we thought of the 4 day so if it was bad I wouldn't have as long but I just got really nervous and didn't want to ruin mine OR my families trip.

And yes I DO have pics of the suite. I haven't used photobucket in forever but I will try to upload them and see if I can get some on here.

Unfortunately I am not good at taking tons of descriptive pics like yourself and others. Which I really appreciate by the way because it is nice to be able to see all the little details. But these are the ones I DID take.

One you open up the door to the suite on the left is a HUGE walk-in closet and I don't know if you took any tours but they told us that it was VERY common for people to bring like 70 or 80 pieces of luggage on these trips. YIKES! And then even have some more in the hold! But then on the right is a small room that is a maids quarters. That is the last pic on the bottom with my daughter in it. It has a single bed a sink and a small closet. Then going back out in the hall there is a bath for the "maid" or for guests that has two doors. One from the hall and one that leads into the living room. Then straight ahead is the living room which was quite large with a book case and bar and of course now they have a tv. On the tour we saw one of the other suites and it had a fireplace but our's did not. The living room is my first pic.

Then from the living room you entered the master suite and it was HUGE with a king bed and lots of clostes and such and there were two doors that lead out to the hall and then a private bath with a separate comode. As shown in the above pics.

We really enjoyed it and thanks to your report we decided to try it and will DEF be back.

Those are fabulous pictures, and you did a great job in describing them. That is one large suite. Enough room for a maid. Wow! I'd say you were so fortunate to have that suite! Its a good things people dont bring that much luggage anymore, that would be one hefty airline fee. Well, you know dont give up on yourself, or beat yourself up because you get seasick. You might one day be able to find something that will work for you. And thank you for sharing you beautiful pictures for everyone to enjoy as well. I did not do the tours. The main room I wanted to see was the pool. I was to cheap to pay to see that when I saw alot on my own. But if I do come back , I may do a tour at that point and time. I hope you join me on my journey to Las Vegas.

Well, I must say this is my favorite part of cruising. Sea day, no getting up real early, just slow cruising and relaxing.....or is it?

Today is Tom's final day at sea...He decided he wanted to go out and greet the public. He had way to much fun. But first my a cup of tea is calling my name. Need to start my day with something..

I am back, we had met this really great couple at our table, and we have alot in common. But for the most part of the last two days we have been playing monopoly.

All the games are located in the Library. I am so glad we decided to take the game with us a few days back, as the library was closed for a private function and couldnt get in. That would of been a sight, seeing 4 grown people drooling at the window begging for the game.

I am not sure what time I woke up but, when I do I need my shower, and run for the darn coffee station. We decided to play the monopoly game at 9:30 am ... go ahead say it , call us nuts. We planted ourselves in the buffet area towards the back of the ship. Um, hoping not to drive people with our madness. Well that didnt last long. All kinds of people we watching, and laughing with us.

I drove them really carzy, as I kept buying at least one property from each area and wouldnt sell. It was so much fun to try and watch them how to get property from one another and go in circles.

The next thing we knew our day turned toward evening and almost time for dinner. So we agreed after dinner we would go play more monopoly.

So of to the cabin to change and get ready for dinner....

Hmm....on the way back our beloved Tom decided to go expolre and boy oh boy. He was in trouble , he made his way over to the night club to dance..I was hoping he didnt run up a tab in there.





We took him back to the room and told him he had to wait for us to come back from dinner, his punishment..

Well he broke that rule this is where we found him on the way back from dinner..





Holy Smokes!!! That bird played alot..dont know if he won anything either.

Next post more pics

Yikes! I forgot to show you our dinner didnt I ?

Sorry!!

Well, darn photobucket wont let me grab the pics

I had chicken, roasted potatos, actually I asked for mashed potatos on the side. Chris had the steak. And of course the My oh so favorite dessert I cruise for....

WARM CHOCOLATE MELTING CAKE dang, my last round . I should of ate two.

Oh well time to get back to the game. Well Tom went with us.

Tom sat waiting for us to take him out..



We left the cabin and the ladies were loving him. Never mind kids. They never even noticed him...

We were a few doors down and these ladies standing in the hall and I stopped to talk with them and they enjoyed tom , not to mention that Chris went back to the room and I was waiting for him.

This one lady looked at Chris and said you look familiar. He said the same thing in return. She said arent you the carpet guy? Yes, he has cleaned the apts where she lives. Talk about a small world.

We continued on our journey to the lido deck to continue our game. As luck would have it the ships photographers wanted to have fun with Tom and started taking his picture. He was a hit. I asked permission for this picture.



I took a few pictures with him. But I didnt buy them. I only bought the one of Tom alone. What memories. After the fun we went back to play the game and of course what else do you do on a cruise? Eat! We played well in to the night before it was time to stop and get packed and ready for our debarkation. But here is a few pics of Tom..
