The Abraham Family’s Journey to Russia to Bring Home Their Daughter

More cruise photos...

It was too hard to narrow them down, so any photo that was even slightly in focus I added. There are a few descriptions, but mostly, this post is just photos from our Carnival Cruise. They are in a random and somewhat reverse order.

We had a fantastic time! We drove to Florida and boarded the ship in Tampa. We cruised to the Grand Cayman island and Cozumel, Mexico. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. The food was out-of-this-world delicious.

I had heard that the C@mp C@rnival for kids was a great program, but on our ship it was terrible. It didn't really matter though because we loved hanging out with our kids the whole week.

My camera's auto focus and exposure abilities are not so great anymore. Perhaps I have dropped it a few too many times. I really need a new point and shoot camera that is both shock proof and water proof. Any suggestions?

Playing cards waiting to get off the ship.
Look at those sad faces because vacation is over - all but the 11 hour drive home.

Garrett bought a book that shows how to make towel animals.
He got pretty good at it. This is his sting ray mom and baby.

We discovered that "Margaritaville" in Grand Cayman has a water slide in the restaurant.
Very, very cool!

Garrett got to go on stage one night before the main show.
He was very proud of the metal he received.

This guy (in the white shirt) bicycled us all the way to meet our taxi in Cozumel.

Mini-golf on the Sports Deck was pretty windy.

Mayan Ruins. Aren't they amazing?

Nolan sitting on the Pirate Ship's plank in Grand Cayman.
He not only walked the plank, but he did a cannon ball off the top rails of the ship!

The mini drink umbrellas were a big hit.

Nothing says "vacation" like sandy toes...

Fun Water Park on the Riviera Deck

I simply love these curly locks

The Port in Tampa. We had a nice relaxing lunch and great visit with the Bellars. Then we noticed that no one was walking toward the ship anymore and our luggage was still in the car (in long term parking.) Can you say "panic"? But we were totally okay and made it on the ship with plenty of time to spare.

Looks like an awesome trip! Were you wishing the whole time that the rails were a little closer together? :) Great pictures!

Cruising is such fun! Glad you guys had a great time (minus the kiddo section of the ship- what a bummer- but thanks for passing that bit of info along!) I just purchased a Fujifilm FinePix XP10 at Costco (same price as Amazon, I believe). Just purchased it this past week and haven't used it for underwater shots yet, ut I'll let you know how it goes.

Looks like you all had a great time! Love the shark and dolphin competition!! Thanks for all the info you sent to me about Carnival vs. RCCL. We're still thinking about Bermuda next year!!
