Day 6/ Sea Day.


OK so when I was on the excursion the previous day I was putting on lip gloss over and over because it was so hot and dry up there. When I woke up in the morning my lower lip was so swollen I looked like "Botched" and had too much lip filler put in my lips. lol. I was putting an ice pack on it but knew I would have to go the medical center. So that was also a first for me....going to the medical center. There was only one lady in front of me so not much of a wait at all. The doctor asked me if I was allergic to anything or ate anything different. Nope....just cruise food and I'm not allergic to anything. Anyways he diagnosed me with allergy and gave me antihistamine and steroid which I dutifully took and made me drowsy for most of the day. Missed Zumba and found some loungers in the shade where I dozed for all morning. He also told me no drinking. Really? Ok I followed the rules.


Went to the port lecturer in the afternoon about the Bermuda Triangle. He was very entertaining. Tonight is formal night and the only night our daughter and friend eat with us. But we have to go on their terms and time and go early. So we decided to celebrate their graduation at dinner.


Bravo was the Production Show and we call it a night after that.
By now my botox lips have gone down tremendously.

Day 7/ Sea day.


Wow this week has gone by fast. The Dr. wanted to see me in the a.m. as a follow up and my lip had gone down but just looked mostly chapped. I really think it was the lip gloss and it was like putting oil on my lips with no protection and just sunburned them so bad I had a reaction . But I do get to do Zumba this morning so feeling good. We grab some loungers in the shade for the morning chill/relax.
British pub lunch is today and I like to always do that. No line at the Crown Grill and only had to wait 15 minutes for our food. Sweet.


Then back to the cabin to start packing suitcases. Tonight is the "Voice of the Ocean" finale and it's packed. Then Karaoke after for our nightly laughs. A few people are really great but they must not of tried out for the Voice.

Is it all ready over? Noooo ....I don't want to get off.

Our plane is leaving late so I do a post excursion with transfer to the airport.
We go to Flamingo Gardens and Port Everglade to look for gators. The Flamingo Gardens is a guided tram tour through the park. So pretty and green with so many different plants. A botanical paradise. We see the Flamingos up close and all the peacocks are showing off their feathers.

On to the boat ride through the everglades. I feel like I'm on Swamp people but it's so fun. As he takes us through the waterways he calls out the gators like he is the "alligator whisperer" and they come out of the marsh up to the boat. After that there is an alligator show which is really more informational. No alligator wresting or anything and you get a photo on the way out. I recommend this excursion, it was really fun.
On to the airport and long flight back to L.A. dreaming where I will go next.

If anyone has questions or needs to see a Princess Patter let me know which one and I will post it.

Thanks Bob. These were just taken with my phone and usually I use filters and stuff but I call these my raw pictures.

This was in St . Maarten after my loooong excursion and I didn't have much time to shop. But right outside the ship pier are some shops/booths. If you are leaving the ship it's on the left hand side. They also have various handmade "hot sauces". The vanilla was $10.00. I'll post a picture next of the pier from the ship.

We were on the Regal last March and were scheduled to do the same excursion in Ft.Lauderdale upon disembarkation. It sounded wonderful, and fun! Unfortunately, one of our group took ill and we had to cancel. Were all disappointed that we missed seeing the flamingos. Oh well, maybe next time.

Yes the flamingos were in rare form. I think they said it was mating season? Lots of noise but so pretty. Hope you can do it next time.

Last November we were on the Regal in an aft cabin, A628. I believe this was the 1st cruise using Ocean Medallion but only a few cabins used the Medallion. Not us. We were given FREE internet for the entire cruise and it wasn't too hard to make a connection from our aft cabin. I would have thought things would have gotten better connectivity-wise since that time.
