The ship set ground

Antigua, Antigua and Barbuda
Finally, we're back on solid ground today. After spending 4 of the past 5 days at sea, I was starting to go a little shack wacky. I'm convinced that the ship shrinks by a few feet every day we spend a sea. Antigua is 14 miles long and 11 miles wide. It also has 365 beaches, so, one for every day of the year. Kier and I have been before...many years ago. We think it was around 2003. Some things look familiar, and I'm guessing by the overall look of the place, it hasn't changed a heck of a lot. Not being beach people, we opted to spend some time around the town...and revisiting an old haunt...the King's Casino. Nope...no luck there either.

A funny thing happened to me on the way to my cabin today . In order to avoid the busy elevators midship, I went to the absolute forward elevators which required me to travel the length of the ship down the hallway of the Baja Deck. I can't tell you exactly how many people I met in the hallway...but I can tell you this...it wasn't until I was a few hundred yards from my cabin before I met another passenger who actually walked unassisted!! I met more walkers, power carts, canes, and the like. And then when I finally did meet someone without a mobility device, they walked with a limp!! Oh well, could have been worse...I could have been stuck BEHIND these people, instead of meeting them!

The Fuss Budget is pretty low today. I'd give it about 10%...and that rating has NOTHING to do with the cruise. It's my email dealings with a hotel I've got booked for a future trip. I wanted to save myself some internet minutes by having them alter my booking for me...but after 4 emails to them they still didn't get the changes right, so I just told them to cancel my booking entirely and I rebooked myself on their website. It took a few more precious minutes, but at least I know it's right.
