Carnival Ecstasy Day One

Well it was interesting to say the least getting on the ship. Apparently a 20 year old guy from NC went into a restricted area and climbed out onto the mast and fell two decks down, was taken to the hospital and died there.

Thus we were late boarding and there were press and police around but we finally sailed about an hour and a half late. I felt really bad that it happened but really? One of those " here, hold my beer while i do this" moments?

What makes people do such crazy things? And now I am quite sure the press will have a field day with it. I swear if a guy falls off a Royal Carribbean ship the press shows a Carnival ship in the background.

So my dinner companions are all single, all cruising alone, and all diamond cruisers. Some of them cruise for months straight. You can do that? Hey! Anyway it was pleasant and now I am getting ready to go to the piano bar and see Liz.

I'm having fun and so far not miss-bee-havin but no promises, that may change at any time! In fact I suspect it will. Tomorrow night I get to wear my red dress. Yee haw!

  1. What a sad way to start a trip but, really, why do people do such crazy things!?

    How many trips do you have to take to quality to be a diamond cruiser?

  2. What a stupid thing to do... and how did he get into a restricted area ?
    Bad start to the trip but enjoy your trip. The salt pool sound wonderful.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. It's a shame that you and Carnival have to start your cruise in such a sad method but it wasn't your fault. I feel bad that this young man lost his life BUT stupidity caused it. Why in the heck do young people have to act so immature and in this case, losing a life which didn't have to happen.
    Now Bee, forget everything and begin your cruise with gusto. Enjoy the sea air, the salt water, the wonderful food and drinks and the friendships that I'm sure you will have no problem succeeding with. Enjoy your time on the ship my gorgeous friend. See ya.


  4. I heard about the guy falling yesterday. That's a shame. I guess we'll know how much he had to drink at some point. It sure does sound like here hold my beer and watch this. What a shame though. So very young.

    I think you should misbehave. Yes I do.

    Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

  5. Miz Bee, we need some excitement. Find someone to stalk. Or at least missbeehave. LOL!

  6. You will have a fine time...for all of us left behind. It is your duty!

    Big hugs, honey...
