Not much to be said so I will let the pictures do the talking. Basically it was an all out awesome night full of drinking, dancing, drinking, partying, and drinking...did I mention drinking?
On to the pictures for more of the story...
The decorated Centrium for New Years. And I guess the Jews got mad about the Christmas stuff so they put up a Hanakaka flag
This was waiting for us at the dinner table
Wine, party hats, free champagne...what more can you ask for?
Cassie and I sporting our new attire. I was the New Years Leprocan
They even gave us noise makers which was a mistake in the dining hall because once one person started, the whole room started blowing in the noise makers. I think even a deaf person could hear how loud we were
My dad is making so much noise the camera couldn't take it and it was shaking in fear
My sister found a new pich of sound in the noise maker. You you scream in it, it makes an even more EXTREME LOUD SOUND!
To shut everyone up in the dining hall, the wait staff decided so sing something. And they all said Happy New Year in their own native language which was cool
Our waiter Michael was still the best. Mainly because he has the same name as Big Mike and we all now how awesome Big Mike is
We started waiving our candle napkins to the music.
Close up of a candle napkin
Michael teaching us another napkin fold (seriously, Michael was amazing. I have never had a waiter on a cruise that paid so much attention to us and really hung out with us a lot)
He taught us how to make a dead chicken...Freakin AWESOME!
Then there's the Sydney Opera for all our down under TPR folk
Alright, it's New Year's...time to freakin get out drink on and party like there's no more days of 2008
Start with the common "JimmyBo drunk face" picture
Going up to the pool deck was where the party was. I'm ready to dance and Cassie is ready to punch me for some odd reason
Dad's excited, It's almost time!
Meg and Jeff are getting ready for the countdown
We decide to dance to waste time until it's actually 2009
One more blow of the sound maker and it's almost time. (Geez, be 2009 already!)
Holy crap, we looked tanked
As do these drunk fools
2009. Bring in the New Year
The annual "Wild Turkey 101" shot for the entire family
Puerto Vallarta was the best port on the trip. Sadly, not a lot of pictures were taken here. Dad, Cassie and I decided to go on a Zip-Line Canopy Tour through the jungle. Unfortunately they wouldn't let us take our cameras through the tour but only at the main hut. Kind of sucked but oh well.
Mom, Meg and Jeff went swimming with Flipper and then got to go to a local water park and try out the water slides there.
The last 2 days at sea were boring and it rained one day.
This is the last of the updates and there will be a little game a couple hours after this update so stay tuned
View of the port
Time to swim with Flipper and his friends
Jeff and Flipper share a laugh together
Flipper dances with Meg (Jeff is getting jealous)
Flipper kisses Meg. At this point Jeff was pissed off at Flipper and he killed him and then ate him for lunch. End of Flipper
After a tasty dolphin lunch it was time for the water park
A couple of the slides at the park
One of the racing slides where fat people always finish first
Meg chillin on the Lazy River because she's lazy
Cassie swinging through the trees! (Note: This picture cost us $20 and they gave it to us on a CD! RAPE!)
The hut where we left our belongings and our soul
We had to walk across this fallen tree bridge to the first platform
See those people up there? See them? NO? Then get your eyes fixed buddy
Tiny platform in the distance about 75 feet up. The highest platform on this course was 110 feet up. Pretty neat knowing that we were higher than some Batman The Ride Clones
The guides waiting for more turistas. Our guides were awesome. There were 6 guides to our 15 person group. They all were very helpful and spoke decent English
Back on the ship we went to the Magic Show. It sucked so we needed some drinks to make it funnier. It still sucked
At dinner, Cassie was sniffing to see if she would like wine. Smart girl, she didn't try it and stuck with other drinks
Michael showed us some Elissa friendly napkin folds. He should us how to fold a mouse napkin
Meg petting her mouse napkin
Cassie loves her mouse napkin too
Jeff is excited about what's for dinner!
At the end of the day, we leave Puerto Vallarta and a Pirate ship is off the steal an oil tanker ship or maybe to go and film Pirates 4
The last two days at sea were boring but we had room service for breakfast
Meg and Jeff joined us
On the pool deck there was an ice carving demonstration
The ice was not being a happy camper
Either the ice sucked or the carver sucked but huge chunks were flying everywhere
In the end it was suppose to be a hummingbird...I don't see it
They had an ACEer Joe belly flop competition
I don't mean to brag, but my skinny ass can make a bigger splash than that fatty McFatfat
In the end, the fatty lost to a skinny guy. But it was basically a popularity contest and of course the skinny, tan, young teenager is going to beat a fat, white, old teenager any day
It started to rain so Cassie and I headed to the Casino. She'd never gambled at a Casino and Cruise Ship Casnio's are usually pretty loose
Well, within 5 minutes Cassie won 250 credits. Score! I guess it is beginners luck
Next it was time to play Phase 10 and I won because I cheated
They even provided us with updated newspapers so we could get the scores of games and NEWS from around the world.
Last night of the cruise and we finally meet the guy who made us all 10 pounds heavier. The head Chef. He seriously looked like Mario, but where's his brother Luigi?
Celebrate the last night. Everyone waive your napkins in the air!
And that was the family on a News Years Cruise. Thanks for reading
Rules are simple! There are 3 rounds. The first 10 people to PM the correct answer after the first round move on. The first 5 people to PM the correct answer after the second round move to the final round. The first person to PM me the correct answer after the final round is the winner.
Only one PM per person unless everyone guesses wrong and then I will say you can guess again.
The game will begin Sunday at 2pm Western Time Zone.
Be ready and come prepared!
The prize is a secret but it's definitely something everyone will need and enjoy!
On our cruise, Jeff have several people come up to him and said that he was very tall and asked his height. Jeff started to get a little annoyed by this so by the 3rd day of the cruise he started to keep a tally of how many people asked him his height. Let's just say by the 5th day he already lost count.
ROUND 1 Question...
What is Jeff's height?
The first 10 people to PM me the correct answer move on to the next round. Only one guess per screen name.
I've added a picture below to help you guys out.
The prize at the end of this little game is cold-hard cash. How much? You will find out when the game is over.
Jeff is tall but people have no respect for the giants of this world
