The Emerald Princess, Aruba

It sure is a beautiful morning. We docked at 7:45 this morning. I have no earthly idea how the captain did it either. That was SOME steering I tell you. I never saw a pilot boat either although there may (should) have been one.

We decided to go swim this morning while (hopefully) the masses are gone. Since we are here until 6:30 this evening we can go ashore in the afternoon.

I did not go to the casino last night after all, saved my money that time!

The seas and the weather have been absolutely perfect. But (so far at least) Carnival is still my favorite. More on that later.

  1. I'm amazed at the tight spots they can get into, too! Sometimes I'm nervous about parking my Towncar! Hee!

    Have a nice swim!

    big hugs xoxo

  2. It fascinated me watching the ship dock when we were on a cruise. Enjoy your day Bee. x

  3. Rut roh.. hope its nothing serious that has you not liking Princess as much. Oh, and btw thank you for cruising and comparing to save us the trouble in the future. I think you could make a new career out of it. Professional Cruiser! :)

  4. Please report on Arbua. I've never been there. Is it any different from the other islands or more of the same?

  5. Good for you for saving $$ so it can stay in your (next) cruise fund!

    Big hugs, honey...

  6. The Carnival must dock at Aruba at a different place. When we went there the Miracle had no problem docking at all there.
    I'm so proud of you Bee. You've continued your pool walking in your cruise. Have you seen some good cakes on your walking through the ship or some weird people? I'm very happy that you are having a great cruise. See you.


  7. I'm thrilled you're having a great time. I'm guessing you probably won't be on Princess again. I know you are treated like royalty on Carnival. I'll await your assessment.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from stormy California. :)

  8. Ciaoooo!

    Have you met people? OCan you tell about curious folks!!!

    Have fun and enjoy your cruise!!!

    Big hugs!!!

  9. Aruba. I've never been there. Is it really pretty? or is it just typical for the Caribbean?
