We left Monday & the weather was awful. It was raining & a cold front was coming. Luckily, we missed it.
Once we got on the boat we ate lunch & explored the boat & then unpacked. If you've never been on a cruise they do this safety thing that is like the flight attendant going through the safety thing on a flight. The only difference is that you have to actually go to your "muster" station & listen to the safety drill. I hate it. I mean really, what's the point? If there's an emergency nobody is going to follow proper procedure. The Concordia anyone..... So I took a little nap before the drill & when I woke up my throat was KILLING me. Seriously??? We weren't on the boat 6 hours & I was sick??? You've got to be kidding.
Tuesday was a day at sea. Those are always really relaxing. Wednesday we were in Progresso. We'd never been there before. We didn't do any excursions this trip. The first thing on my to do list was to find a "pharmacy" to get some sinus meds. The ship didn't have anything but Tylenol PM & if I took that during the day I wouldn't have known where I was. Lucky for me I found a guy. HAHA! He spoke enough English to understand I needed a decongestant & then he was able to tell me to take 3 at a time every 8 hours. Now normally I wouldn't buy random meds from a third world country but I was desperate. So desperate that I took the meds with this.
On the menu for dinner was fried shrimp & fried green beans.
The shrimp are the darker colored fried things. They were surprisingly good. Although, for the life of me I can't figure out why they were that shape. Shrimp aren't straight.
Thursday we were in Cozumel.
Back on the boat we did a mini martini tasting.
I'll post some of the good pics later in the week. Hopefully, I'll be feeling better. I've got a ton of things to do to get ready for Christmas.
