In recovery mode

We have been home for a week now and I am ready for another vacation! Now if only my bank account would be as ready as I am...

The trip was great! NYC was fun like always. We had the opportunity to see 'In The Heights" on Broadway and we highly recommend it. I really want to see Billy Elliot and it is on my list for next time.
We boarded the Norwegian Jewel on the 28th, on a dreary cold day in the NYC. After two days at sea, we arrived to the very welcomed heat of the Caribbean.

As some of you know, I review hotels & cruise ships for a living. This is a personal review and no compensation was received.
This was our second journey on the Jewel and we were not disappointed. I don't think that I will be able to go back to 7 day cruises any time soon. This was our first time sailing for longer than a week and we LOVED it! I was a little concerned at first, thinking that 14 days was too long. But I find that it is just right. The Cruise Director/Activities Staff was fantastic! We were never bored!

Food is subjective and I will not dwell on that, except to say that we did not go hungry! We ate ate every specialty restaurant on board and were not disappointed!

We bought our Future Cruise Reward certificate on board, so we are set for our next journey! If you sail with NCL, I highly recommend buying one or 10! Actually, I think you can only buy four, but it's so worth it!

Oh, and three words...Spa Pass Rules!

I arrived home very tan, somewhat rested and 3 lbs heavier. If ya'll ever get to visit Belize, definitely go cave tubing! That was the highlight of our shore trips. If you do, go with Vital at cave-tubing.bz. I highly recommend them for their professionalism and attention to safety.

Anyhoo, back to reality.

I cannot believe that the holidays are already here. Seems like I just took down the darn tree the other day! Now it's going back up next week.

Looks like I will be hosting Christmas Eve at my house this year, so I am not signing up for Thanksgiving as well. If no one decides to do it, then I see us at Cracker Barrel! No stress.
