Hi all — Just back from our very first time going on a cruise. Our friends Paul and Sue (experienced cruisers & close friends for almost 40 years) invited us along on a trip up the western coast from L.A. to Vancouver. So we tagged along and here are some of the best bits about cruising up the coast with good friends.
We arrived at the terminal and settled into our smallish rooms. Then set out to explore the ship–15 floors of lounges, dining rooms, shops and decks and places to settle in.
Between ports, we passed the time reading (it’s a gift to have friends who like to sit and read the morning away), eating (too much!) and enjoying the ships entertainment venues (here- a pop concert, interview with a Oscar winning song writer and our favorite piano violinist team from Russia)
And of course there was the meals, high tea and snacks galore. Plus my favorite– a tour of the ships kitchen.
After 7 pleasant days, we glided into Vancouver B.C. docking right up nestled in the city!! (See Larry at the rail, taking a photo). And I’ll end with our last late night walk around the deck. Thanks thanks Paul and Sue. We love time to talk and laugh and relax with you two!
