Thank you! Most photos were taken using a Canon 5D Mark II with a 16-35mm f/2.8 lens. I think we used the 70-200mm f/2.8L lens for a few of them.

All of the underwater photos were taken using a Canon D20

Glad to hear you're enjoying it! I love blogging about our cruises.

Truly awesome photos. Just up to 5th post but would be interested on your take of the classic vs new ships.

Loved your blog.


I'm just waiting to hear the verdict - were your parents pleased you convinced them to go on the cruise?

Everyone had an awesome time, but I did feel really bad when my dad and my husband's mom got seasick! I didn't even think about the fact that someone would be sick. Once the seas calmed down it was 'smooth sailing' from then on out!

My mom in particular fell in love with cruising. I think I may have created a monster.

I'm still working my way through your trip report, but I'm definitely enjoying it! I'm planning on using the pictures (especially food pictures) to convince DH that we need to try a cruise!

Pleased to hear that everyone enjoyed themselves despite getting sea sick

Great report...but you are making this first timer nervous...

Loving your report and all the pictures
But I have to admit, you are making this first timer nervous...we are slated for the Western this coming February (1st week)...rough weather can happen anytime, right? It isn't any more likely in Feb....I hope?!

I am very nervous about being sea-sick, stuck in my cabin and thinking...why on Earth did I sign up for this?

Thanks again for sharing your experience!

Are you regularly prone to sea sickness or motion sickness? We've cruised in Jan/Feb before and had perfectly calm seas, so I don't think it's any worse during those months. Also, most of our group was 100% fine, so don't worry too much and have a great time!!
