Carnival Cruises now has an internet package rather than paying by the minute. Unfortunately the internet is so weak and slow that it took at least 10 minutes to upload the picture above. But, it is better than the nothing I had on previous cruises.
Our ship, the Carnival Triumph is the one in the picture. It’s half again as large as any we have been on before. In the past, we lucked out and always had one of the Spirit class sister ships so after five cruises I had finally learned my way around. I will never learn my way on this ship. For one thing, I have a terrible sense of direction inside of buildings. I still cannot figure out Aft from Port from Broadside to Starboard. None of it makes sense. A commenter on my last post asked if I needed a GPS. I never thought of that but it would be a very good idea. Carnival could make money by renting them out for the cruise.
The sea has been so smooth that I can hardly tell we are moving. Lauren however is not faring so well. She has been sick twice but that is always after she has been bar hopping late at night so that may have something to do with it. These ships have at least 10 bars on them and it seems Lauren is about the only person in them each night. There are no young people on this ship which is very, very unusual. We did see one young handsome man the first night out, who it appeared was traveling with his father. He was eyeing Lauren pretty good but their paths have not crossed again. She has had a stalker though who follows her everywhere, sits down nearby, and just stares. Lauren is about to throw him overboard.
We have been to three ports since St. Thomas and I took many pictures as I got off the ship each time. I wanted you to see a bit of the ship first. Oh, the above picture was taken in St. Kitts, my least favorite port so far.
Also, I didn’t bring my good Nikon because my pack mule stayed in Colorado so my pictures are all taken with my little Lumix making for some blown out skies.
