I have been meaning to update you on our latest adventure. Riley World went on a 7 day Caribbean cruise with my sister and her family and G’s brother and wife. That was 2 weeks ago.
Then I got sick. For a week. And I lost my prescription glasses on one of the flights home. So I couldn’t see. Now I feel like it may be too late. Or not?!?! So perhaps I will just give you the highlights. With photos of course. In semi-point form (after all some things do require a little explanation).
We left at the crack of dawn (it may not look like the crack of dawn but we had to leave for the airport at 5am so work with me here) on a cold and rainy day. What better time to head south.
Three planes, two layovers and 12-1/2 hours later we made it to Fort Lauderdale unscathed. Riley was a real trooper. I was able to schedule 3 flights (all under 3 hrs) with 2 layovers between 2 and 2-1/2 hours (just enough time to get something to eat and stretch our legs). It worked out great!
Our home for seven nights.
R got all settled in and never wanted to leave. Ever. As in he would have preferred to stay in the stateroom if we let him.
BONUS: R got to sleep on the couch.
We did convince him to go to the pool/hot tub. Once. Maybe twice.
It was usually very busy around the pool so we opted to lounge around on the upper decks.
We visited 3 different ports. We were unable to dock at our last port due to sea swells.

The trip home was a little more ummmm eventful. I will leave that for another post along with the pros and cons of cruising with Riley World. Let's keep this post all happy, happy shall we? :D
