Here’s a sneak peak at some shots I got during our days at sea. πŸ™‚

When we first got on the boat in Mobile it was POURING rain. Thankfully this was the only rain we had on the whole trip. It lasted for about an hour and then quit before we headed out! πŸ™‚

1.Β Our room! 2.Β The main atrium on the boat. 3.Β The main deck of the boat. 4. Our dining room.

Ready for dinner!

1.Β We had a GREAT time getting to know the staff on the Elation. They were all SO friendly! We had a great time goofing off with them. 2. The sushi chef! 3. One of the best musical performances while we were there. 4. Andy,Β the winner ofΒ “Legends” (like American Idol). 5. 24 hour pizza bar! 6. Punchliner Comedy Club. 7. Hairy Man Contest. 8. The dining staff sang a “Goodbye” song for us on our last night. It was so sweet!

Went to check out the gym one night. Gotta love all the crazy on my face in this shot, haha! We didn’t spend much time in the gym, but we did go one morning and it felt SO good to lift weights again. Makes me realize how much I’ve missed it!

1. The giant chess set! 2. Ice sculpting. 3. Mini golf. 4. We had a deck party one night and it started out as a lot of fun. We danced to the YMCA, Cha Cha Slide and theΒ Macarena! πŸ˜€

Of course lots of towel and napkin folding! One night our waiter taught us how to make little people (top middle shot) out of napkins. We were so proud of ourselves, haha!

Us learning how to make towel animals! And the middle shot is of Christopher with kitty ears. πŸ˜‰

On the front of the ship at night time… it was gorgeous! Loved the wind in my hair!

Christopher at the front of the ship.

Kisses at sunset πŸ˜€

It was a fabulous cruise! So excited for our next one! πŸ˜€

  22. These pictures remind me of my cruise! I went to the gym once when we were on the boat. It actually ended up making me extremely nauseous to be on the treadmill with the boat moving a little. Glad to see you guys had a wonderful time.
