Carnival Aficionados Baseline 02

As I begin this journey of writing this cruise blog, let me start by saying a cruise is totally what you make it. You can have an amazing time with action and adventure. Or you can have one of the most disruptive infringements upon your most precious time. Possibly ruin the trip you so deserve to take.

There are many activities, excursions and sites to chose from. There is something for everyone of all ages to do. It's all up to you! Now imagine a blank canvas, where you are the artist. After you examine what colors you have to work with you begin the creation of your masterpiece. You get to tell an artistic view of what you see, hear, taste or smell. This is the way I would suggest that you pursue a cruise! The entire trip is your canvas and the hues you use, would be your adventures.

Take for instance you decide to visit a few broadway shows let's paint a few strokes of yellow, then add a comedy show add some purple stokes. Next imagine all the free food available from all over the world 24 hours each day, that color could be green representing eat as many times as you like. Then you may decide to add karaoke or watch karaoke let's paint that red from the excitement. Of course if you want to just relax, absorb the sunshine and drift off into the beautiful sky's tranquility that color could be stokes of light blue. What if you just glazed at the depths of the sea full of dolphins or whales this could be dark blue. Or maybe you had a conversation or took a picture with the Captain add a few strokes of white. See how easy it would be to create a picture of beauty.

That's just getting started. We have not mentioned swimming, hot tubs, zip lining, beaches, exotic beverages, water slides, the casino, dancing, movie nite, a few formal dinners, scuba diving, parasailing and more.

Finally you take a few pictures to commemorate your trip, and your canvas is now complete. That's what cruising is all about creating beautiful memories full of vibrancy, laughter and adventures. It's all what you make it.

So I suggest that you do it all, see it all, taste it all and turn your experiences into a beautiful canvas to express it all and then start planning your next cruise right away! See you at the next port! ~Karen
