Imagine you are laying in the sun.  On a lounger.  On a cruise ship.  Slightly rocking back and forth.  It's almost time to go change for dinner and the show.  What to wear?  The black dress or the blue pants suit?  Or maybe the white jeans and black top.  Yes, that's it, that's what I'll wear.  Now what to eat?  The prime rib or the pasta or the fish or the shrimp?  So many choices.  I'll have the fish. 

The cabin steward has freshened your cabin again and changed all your towels for the second time today.  He has made you a towel animal and put chocolate on your pillow.  He has also put tomorrow's schedule there so you can see what you want to do tomorrow too.  

The show is about to start.  It's Ticket to Ride, the Beatles tribute and one of your favorites.  Then the piano bar awaits, the guy singing and playing is rocking the house and the bar staff is busy keeping us all hydrated after a long day in the sun.  Everyone is singing and laughing.  And you might be sitting on the piano. Again.  Possibly.

The cruise director has a treat delivered to your cabin while you are out. 

You stop to thank him on the promenade.

You stop off at the comedy club and decide to have a little umbrella drink while you listen to the comedian.
Then you decide to go for a walk around the top deck and look at the moon.  Oh, wait.  A buffet is opening.  To eat again or not?  So many decisions.  Or there is always the 24 hour pizza and room service.  I know, a slice of pizza from the Pizza Pirate and then milk and warm cookies from room service.  All free of course.  Then a warm shower and a bed that moves with the ocean, just slightly, rocking you to sleep.  

Is that the sun coming up?  Yes it is.  I think I'll have coffee on the balcony and watch that happen.  Time for another day to start and we'll do it all over again.  And again.  And again.

Sorry, I was just daydreaming there for a bit...


  1. Back in the day, that's why we had a water bed. Love the feeling of being rocked to sleep...

  2. Carnival, take me away!

    big hugs xoxo

  3. Next time I have to visualize a place for my Balance class I'm going to steal your daydream to think about.

  4. Ah, this is the life! The perfect vacation! So glad you'll be cruising again soon. Have a great day.

  5. Oh you are killing me right now. I have to wait until 179 days until my cruise and you make your blog this one. Why oh why must you do this to me Bee? Ha,ha,ha,
    I really enjoyed your blog this morning my gorgeous friend. I'm going to have to remember this blog to see if my cruise is anything like this. But I should realize, that I'm not Empress Bee who is the Queen of Carnival and who has all those Cruise Directors in the palm of her hand. I'm only a man, as mu daughter would tell me. Ha,ha,ha.
    Have a wonderful day Bee. See ya.


  6. Buongiorno!

    What a perfect dream...it'll be true soon!!!

    Big hugs, honwy!!

  7. I recognise that life! I've only been on two cruises but they were just like that! :)

  8. Well sign me up, Queen Bee of the High Seas !

    cheers, parsnip

  9. Bee, I want to go. You are right, I sleep better on the ship than anywhere else. I love those nice treats you got in the room. The fun at the piano bar too. Yikes, it's been too long since our last cruise. Maybe next year. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  10. All good if you don't cruise on the West coast and I never will again.

    Have a fabulous daydream. Big hugs to you and my very best to Roche. ♥♥♥

  11. I have trouble sleeping at home, but I sleep like a baby all 7 nights of a cruise. I am so rested when I get back and have so many vacation photos and memories too. Cruising is the best!

  12. Hi Miss Bee! Now I wish I was on a cruise.


  13. Mmmmm, cruising. Is there room in your suitcase for me? I'm lots of fun on a cruise!

  14. Sigh. Great dream. It's all good.

    Big hugs, honey...

  15. Sounds like a perfect day, thanks for helping me dream Miss Bee!

    Hugs and stuff,
