I know, I said I wasn't going to do this but since I'm not really packing I have to do something! I should be packing, but I can't bring myself to do it!
Here's a quick synopsis:
1/7/09 - flew to Tampa, stayed at a Sheraton where we had to change rooms at midnight because we found bedbugs in our room
1/8/09 - boarded ship, to find out that we were on a floating combination spring break party town/casino. Paul narrowly avoids entering an elevator that a drunk has just urinated in.
1/9/09 - Day at sea. Came down with a horrible head cold
1/10/09 - arrive Cozumel, board a ferry to the mainland, take a bus to Tulum to see Mayan ruins. It was SO hot and humid. Leave Cozumel that evening.
1/11/09 - Day at sea. Almost step in more excrement in the stairwell.
1/12/09 - arrive back in Tampa, debark, go to Aquarium, fly home.
In spite of the above mentioned unfortunate events, I really did have a good time. The people we were with from Paul's office were so much fun! It was really nice to have adults to associate with. The staff on the ship were incredible, the food excellent, and I didn't get sea sick (well, not as bad as I usually do anyway). And our excursion to see the Mayan ruins was a chance of a lifetime. We didn't have anywhere near enough time to spend at Tulum, but our tour guide was fabulous and I learned a lot. Here are some pictures:
