Pete and I enjoyed ourselves very much and made some new friends we will stay in touch with and may cruise with again!
We saw fantastic comedy shows by Second City and comedian Bud Anderson and the comedy hypnotist Brenda Kaye. I laughed more in the 7 days on the ship than in the year leading up to it I think.
Back home I'm finding myself with renewed energy and renewed resolve to make it happen for me. And happily I did not come home with a single extra pound from the cruise (just the ones I took on with me to start with) despite everyone's warning that a cruise add's 10 pounds.
I'll leave you with some photos from our experience that make me smile and hopefully you will too:
