February 13, 2009 - Friday too!
The disembarkation day is always always a pain, unless you are staying on, but we are not we are getting off.
We had arranged to do walk off, which means you meet in a designated lounge at your time with all your bags and you are the first off. We chose this because we had a flight at 11:15 am and we wanted to get off first.
And yes were off first, and in a taxi by 7:45 am! Very smooth, no problems. When we got to the airport (which is only 15 min. away - with traffic) we both said, now what. Sure we could of booked the 8:30 flight but who would want to risk it. So we grabbed a coffee, got our our Ipods and waited for our flight.
The entire trip was very uneventful, we made it to Houston, then transferred to our flight to Seattle. We arrived in Seattle on time and we in the parking shuttle 10 min. after getting our bag.
We were home around 10:30 pm, which is 1:30 am Forth Lauderdale time, it was a very long day but we are home, and now we have two days to getting things back to normal before work starts on Monday.
Being away from home for just over a month is weird, it is the longest I have been away and the stacks of mail prove it. The house smells musty and our bed feels devine.
In the end I put on 10lbs! But know that will come off quick once I get back into a routine of eating healthy and working out again.
I would have to rate this one of the best vacations we have ever taken. We met and reconnected with so many great people. It also reconfirmed our love of cruising.
Our next cruise is a one day cruise Vancouver to Seattle on May 9th. Then a week later we are travelling to Alaska on a seven day cruise. So stay tuned for more travel adventures.
