I'm just catching up after 2 weeks away. Looks like you had a great vacation (so far,) Your shore excursions seem to be working out for Fran so far too. We are contemplating a Magic 5 day for September 2014 so I'm paying very close attention...

There are bits of Cozumel and Carmen de Playa that looks familiar. And Cozumel looks completely cleaned up compared to what I remember from the late 90's.

Looking forward to your Tasty Tastings!

Fun fun fun! More tequila.

You have the cutest dresses. You're inspiring me to get some for our cruise. And Vegas. And Mexico.

The buffet looks good. Thank you, thank you for the Navigators. I actually printed off the pages so I could see them better.

Glad Fran decided to have you take the bike ride down the walk vs walking.

I did love the room service menus and food. You know me too well.

It was nice that there were only a few of us, and it turned out that Fran and I were very understanding of the slow pace that the other lady needed. It's definitely a good tour for HA. They were very accommodating. The hardest part was getting into the taxi.

I hope your two weeks away for good reasons!

Oh, you said September, when I first read this I was being hopeful. (foreshadowing).

Having never been there, the only thing I can think of is Tiajuana. That was pretty much all that we saw besides the center which will be my next update.

Thank you! I love my dresses, but I rarely get to wear at home them since Fran is usually requesting me to install, clean, move or dig out things. I end up wearing my shirts full of holes and stained pants at home.

I'm glad you're enjoying the posts. Your trip will be totally different, but at least you get the idea.

Foreshadowing you say? How very exciting

I'm loving your pictures of Cozumel, they're taking me right back to my trip last year.

I'm glad they didn't cancel your excursion, everything I've heard is that when there are not enough people they can be canceled.

What are your upcoming ones? Are you going to go back out of Galveston?

Thanks for all the photos of the breakfast buffet

I am slightly obsessed with breakfast and would happily eat it for every meal so I love seeing what they have ...... Sad I know!

All caught up!

I was just commenting on Pam's TR about neat it is that she would always have on some Disney movie and it looks like it's the cool thing to do! I need to look for the GMA shows that you watched. I would like to catch that.

Your Duck Tour looked way better than the one I did in Boston. Maybe because you guys went out into the actual ocean. And man what cool (and weird) stories!

Palo, of course, looks amazing as always. I wish I could afford to eat there every night of the cruise....and Brunch too.

Omgosh I can't wait to hear about your tequila tasting!

I did a little of that before, but it was too subtle...

I don't think this is one that they would cancel. We were in a private taxi, so there was no need to rent a bus or anything. Also this seems to pretty much be one of the only HA activities.

Well you may have missed the boat (so to speak). After this year Disney will no longer be sailing out of Galveston. There are a few cruises in the Fall, but then they are done.

I'll be getting to that soon.

I always like having an idea of what the buffets offer. I just booked Cape May for my Fall trip and would love if someone is going to take pics and post them! Sad, I know!

We've always got the TV droning on in the background, so we just do it on the ship too. I'm not always paying close attention, but it's fun to see these movies again, especially since we don't have time at home to watch DVDs. We are so far behind on the DVR, we are still trying to clear out all the shows in March!

I've got a date with Kohl's this weekend and a 30% off coupon, hoping I can find a few cute sundresses.

I haven't really shopped at Kohl's, I like Dress Barn, and surprisingly enough Sears!
