Here are the pictures I've been anxious to share with you.  Laura and I left the Port of Houston for an awesome weeklong trip to the Western Caribbean. The weather in Houston that day was horrible... bad enough that lots of the passengers weren't able to get to the pier because of flooded underpasses that the airport buses couldn't get through.  Some of those folks met up with us when we docked in Cozumel Tuesday night.  We had to skip a stop in Calica, Mexico, on Tuesday because of high winds.

Tuesday night was the first formal night on the ship.  Here we are with the people we were seated with for most dinners... Brenda and George, from Oklahoma.   We had a lot of fun, and no food went to waste.  George made sure of that!

One of the midnight buffets was a Chocoholic Buffet.

The people working on the ship came from 43 different countries.
 
These crew members were some of our favorites:
