Yay - our honeymoon has been booked!!! Thanks to our travel agent (daddy) we have a glorious cruise planned for the week after our wedding!
We'll be leaving out of New Orleans on October 3rd onboard the Carnival Conquest. During the cruise we'll be going to Montego Bay, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, & Cozumel, Mexico. I can't wait...now I need to start putting together a list of what we have for the trip, and what we'll need to go shopping for!
Well, we're back and we had a great time! We didn't get to make it The Caymans, b/c Hurricane Ivan messed it up pretty badly, so we spent more time in Jamaica and Cozumel and they even gave us a little spending money to compensate! The ship was beautiful and the service was so wonderful! We had beautiful weather until the last 12 hours home and then it started getting a little rough, otherwise it was perfect! Michael and I are ready to go back!!!!
After the reception the limo took us to my parents where a change of clothes and my jeep fully packed was waiting on us! After we raided mother's fridge, we headed off to Lake Charles - our half way point on the way to New Orleans! When we arrived the hotel told us they didn't have a room for us. I had booked it through the casino and since their own hotel was full they were going to put us up across the street - um, they forgot to send our names over or something. So...we were sent back to the casino and they gave us a room there. A very nice room, too! And yes, we ended up going to the casino for about an hour!
The next morning we were up and eating b'fast around 9:00 and on the road to the Port of New Orleans to board the ship! We were on board around 1:30 - it took about an hour or a little more once we got there, but we were constantly moving so it wasn't bad at all! And the fun started before we even sailed (at 6:00)! Michael was so impressed with everything...and so was I! It was beautiful and they had everything ready for us to go! It was so relaxing!
