Celebrity Cruise

December 8, 2015

Day 1, Saturday, on the Celebrity Constellation

There’s nothing like the exhilaration you feel when sailing away from land and knowing you are escaping reality for a week or more. We set sail from Fort Lauderdale for a ten day cruise on the Celebrity Constellation. Here is my shaky video of the sail-away:


Naturally the first place on the ship we headed was the buffet. I don’t remember what I grabbed for lunch, but I finished it with rum cake and pina colada ice cream. Dinner was shrimp cocktail served with guacamole in this martini glass:


I had a salad and prime ribs to start off my gastronomic adventure. Apple pie a la mode polished off the meal. From here we went to the welcome show, which entertained us with a comedian, singers and dancers, and two spectacular aerialists. We’d see more of these performers throughout the trip. Below is my cousin Janice who accompanied us on this cruise. You may find a character named after her in Peril by Ponytail.

  1. I love cruising!! There is no better way to travel in my opinion!! Thanks for offering this contest!! I’d love to win!! Happy holidays!!

  2. Way to go – we love cruising and Celebrity is our line of choice! Would love to do an authors’s cruise with special speakers (hint hint).

    1. Actually, there is one author’s cruise I can recommend. Florida Romance Writers does a cruise conference every other year. Next one is February 2017 to Cozumel for 4 days.

  3. Enjoyed the photos of your cruise. Brought back memories of my Alaskan cruise and all the good food which I went overboard on….eating, that is.

  4. I’ve never gone on a cruise but your pictures are very persuasive! Thank you so much for sharing and for the contest! I know you had a wonderful time!

    1. Book a cabin in a quiet location, not near a lounge that might be open with loud music until late at night. I could give lots of tips. Maybe I will write them as another blog.

  5. Sounds like you had a great time. I would love to go on a cruise sometime. Maybe when my granddaughter is grown and out of the house and
    I have more money. LOL

  6. Perhaps some day I’ll know what a cruise is like– my husband has been obscurely planning one for some years….

  7. I’m really impressed with your writing abilities and also with the layout for your blog.
    Is that this a paid subject matter or did you customize
    it yourself? Anyway stay up the nice high quality writing, it is uncommon to see a nice
    weblog like this one today..
