To celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, Jeri and I (Tim) took our first cruise thanks to our loving, generous children (especially the ones with jobs). Justin and Josiah dropped us off in Long Beach (about a 30-minute drive from home) on Wednesday, September 23rd.
We sailed on the Crown Princess along with over 3,000 other passengers.
Here’s a picture of our room.
Overnight, we sailed to San Diego which was only a short distance away. We woke up in San Diego Harbor.
Here’s view from our balcony. Note the submarine in the picture.
This morning we went up to the buffet for breakfast. While we were sitting, a couple in their 60s came walking by and sat two tables away from us. She was berating him for not telling her exactly where to find him. Apparently he told her that he would “be outside.” Since the outside eating area is pretty large, she was frustrated that she had to walk around to find him. She slammed her tray on the table and repeatedly told him how wrong he was. He did say that he was sorry but she didn’t accept his apologies.
After breakfast, we walked around the ship and explored for a bit. We found the highest deck.
Jeri woke up with a slight headache. Oftentimes her headaches go away after she gets up. However this one didn’t. So she took a nap most of the afternoon.
We turned on the Romance movie channel in our room and we saw the end of a movie “The Fault in Our Stars.” It’s a PG-13 romance drama about two cancer-stricken teenagers.
Tim had to eat lunch by himself…definitely not as fun. He even went to the evening show by himself. Jay Alexander, the mentalist, did some cool “mind-reading” tricks. Very entertaining. He does a second (different) show later on the cruise as well.
