Cruise Report

I am home!
The cruise was...AWESOME!
We had a wonderful time and hope to go back next year.
Rosie looked awesome.
Kelli was the nicest person with the biggest smile.
Esera was so sweet to our kids.
Sharon Gless...awesome woman.
Cyndi Lauper rocked the house...ROCKED!
Melissa Etheridge...wow...great suprise...Totally Awesome!

My favorite part was when we first walked in.
Ashlee said...look at all these gay families!
She didn't have to be embarrassed.
She even made some friends.
She misses the boat already.
Why?
Because there was so much love on the boat.

Leslee loved all the free stuff.
Free is her favorite word.
She loved Kids Crew and loved her new friends from New Jersey.

BJ fell in love with Ice Cream Ilana from the Kids Crew staff.
He loved the hot tubs.
He loved Rosie and Rosie loved him.
He loved his first plane ride.

Tammy loved our alone time.
She loved our morning spa hot tub runs.
She loved when I squeezed her heels.

I loved spending time with my family in a safe place.
So welcoming, no judging, so open and friendly.
I loved how Vivi kept thinking I was Rosie.
I think I am her new friend.
She is too adorable.

393 photos I took.
2 hours of video.
Make sure you check out my flickr photos.

Donna, Courtney and Carly.
Our new friends from New Jersey.
We had a blast shopping, swimming and eating together.
Oh...and hanging out in the front row of every show together.
Donna was Cyndi and I was Rosie...look alikes.

My Staten Island friends..Alice and her sister.
They are straight and big Rosie fans.
They were sooo sweet.

Rosie's dietitians Richard and Rachel.
Soooo nice and soooo informative.
I'm going to have to go out and get their books.

TWO chocolate buffets.
Mmmmm...chocolate.
Good stuff.

If you have some questions about the cruise leave me a comment!

Okay, question, if you know... How much are the celebrities on the cruise able to just hang out and enjoy vacation when they're not performing, or are they mobbed wherever they go on the ship?

SassyFemme said...

Just looked at more of your photos. They're great! Makes me feel almost like I was there. Looks like you guys had such a blast.
