Part 2 – More Cruise Fun!
Ok, so the next port was the Cayman Islands. For those of you who have not cruised before there are no docks for ships at the Cayman Islands so you have to ‘tender’ in on smaller ships. This is always a pain, and it’s always rough and windy there so KT and I decided to stay on the ship. Grant is also not into the whole small boat thing so he stayed behind as well. This left Robb and Kristyn to go ashore!
A picture of the ship from the smaller tender
Welcome to the Cayman Islands!
I kind of fear what they were putting in some of the beers!
Whenever Robb is unsupervised with the camera we end up with stuff like this:
OMG! Someone cut off those birds heads!!!
Here’s the section of the TR with Robb posing with random things:
Big Black Dick
Scary Red Fish
Time to head back to the ship
Where Elissa and KT are waiting!
Kristen, what are you doing, that’s your Uncle!!!
Time for some more food!
And of course dessert!
Kristen made friends at the Jewelry Store, and they even gave her a beautiful present at the end of the cruise!
Princess Cruise line started a new trend in cruising called ‘Movies Under The Stars’. They have a nice screen setup over one of the pool areas, and during the day they would show sports, concerts, random stuff. Then at night they would show movies with blankets and popcorn. Tonight was very Elissa Friendly!
Yay for Ratatouille!
Crap, the Disney ship must be angry that we watched their movie last night as they pulled up right next to us the next day in Cozumel, Mexico.
This is nicer than what most of Mexico looks like. =/
Forget all those spam emails for Canadian Pharmacy’s, it’s all about the Mexican ones!
I don’t understand all of these shirts. I mean you see these generic shirts at all tourist places, you see people buying them. But no one really wears them! Where do they end up? Is there like a Tacky Tee-Shirt Hell? Do these vendors sneak back into your closest and take the shirts back to resell them because they know you won’t notice? It’s odd.
More tacky souvenirs
At least Cozumel is Elissa Friendly (oh and KT discovered she likes McDonalds French Fries on this trip, so it’s now KT Friendly also!)
But where’s the Intamin Woodie!??!
Yay for cheap Mexican Beer!
Dead Men Can’t Be Sued By Disney!
SharkTums approves of Mexican SharkTums!
Well, then the quality must be amazing!
My dad and Fidel share a moment.
Um, Warning. The next picture is very disturbing. Robb decided to buy one of those horrible tacky souvenirs that you wonder ‘Who would ever buy that’. Yeah, it’s pretty X Rated, so if you’re easily offended…heck if you’re easily offended you wouldn’t have made it this far! So here she is, in all her glory!
Yeah, I warned you.
Apparently she’s some sort of tequila holder.
It feels really wrong that the next picture is of KT, but as Robb was wasting money on that horrible thing, I got KT a nice handmade bracelet!
Back on the ship again, Robb thanks Casey for his big win!!
Even more dessert
Ok, so now for a short story accompanied with some awesome pictures. One of the last nights of the cruise we went up to my brothers cabin to play some Monopoly. So we play for about 45 minutes, then KT started getting tired so I took her back to our cabin to go to sleep while Robb continued to play. About 45 minutes after that Robb comes in, in tears laughing. I’m yelling at him to be quiet because KT is asleep, but then he proceeds to tell me what happened and I die laughing as well.
So apparently, my brother had stockpiled all of the chocolates they give you every day and hidden them in the bed. Robb had been sitting on these for the last hour and a half. This is what the bed looked like when he got up:
His pants looked very similar. So then, the three geniuses try to figure out what to do. They decide to pour about 3 gallons of water on the bed to ‘wash’ the chocolate off.
They then spent about 30 minutes with multiple hair dryers trying to dry the bed off. It was still wet when we got off the ship.
We tipped this guy like $40. He was amazing, and brought the stuff all the way to the garage!
And so ends another awesome cruise! Seriously, the TPR Cruise will happen, it’s just way too much fun!
Next up…hanging in Sarasota and a BONUS CREDIT!!!!
