All Aboard!

Happy Thursday, dear friends!  It's almost Friday!  I cannot believe how the summer is flying by!

This is my second installment of our summer holiday.  Doesn't that sound European?  I've become so cultured I literally can't stand myself.

The next day my Italian boyfriend, Luca, picked us up and bid us arrevederci.  I leave another broken heart in my tracks. 

This is Celebrity's newest ship and we could really tell.  It was absolutely pristine. 

Sista and I only sail on Celebrity ships because we are celebrities in our own minds.    

View from our room.

When we boarded ship, we had a great lunch awaiting our rooms to be ready.  The staff was extremely organized and delivered our baggage to our rooms within two hours of arrival.

The pilot boat helps us leave the dock and leads us out to sea.

The Mister and B-I-L making sure the ship captain doesn't make a wrong turn.  We had rooms next door to each other and we had the partition taken down so that we could have one large balcony.

Bon Voyage ala Madras style.

Next up... wrist ware that wards away seasickness.

We're on our way!

Cocktails and jazz music at 8pm.  Nef #2, my #2, and our father who art in Austin, Wild Bill, in his favorite mode of transportation... the almighty scooter.

Sista and #1 Nef.

Wild Bill and his second favorite daughter.

The Angelina and Brad of the ship.

B-I-L moving in on Brad's territory.  I smell ship fight!

Angelina and one of her 18 kids.

Best looking studs on board.  Outside of Wild Bill, that is.
