Well I just got back from my cruise, had a wonderful time ate and drank way too much. Take a note never drink five martinis in a two-hour period if you want to stand up straight. Anyway it was all in good fun!

I spent each night on the ship basically doing the same thing, my pre-dinner drink(s) ;) with a nice cigar in the Ionian Room with my cousins and Uncles (very machismo). Following this we joined the rest of the family for dinner in the Atlantic Dinning room, our poor wait staff had over 20 of us to deal with, lol. After dinner we went to the 8:30 show and then I'd head off to the Piano bar. Every cruise I've gone on I love going to the piano bar, its just allot of fun sitting around a piano shouting out requests and then singing along with you're fellow passengers. The guy who ran the Piano Bar on the Carnival Victory was Peter Kraft, yes he has a myspace.... http://www.myspace.com/peterkraft He was fantastic and made each night allot of fun. Its always a good time after a few drinks how you begin to make up words to songs you know, lol After the Piano bar closed at 1 my cousins and I just hung out at this one bar until we headed to bed around 3:30 each night.

If you've never been on a cruise I'd recommend one! This was my sixth cruise and I never get tired of them. I've done all my cruises with Carnival and one with Princess and both lines do a great job making you feel like you're their only guest. Below are some pictures from the last five days.

Ohh and how as the motion or swaying on the ship?
I know that after a cruise ship leaves port, it turns off some propellers which stablize the ship in the harbor.

This was the smoothest cruise I've taken, very little motion, I've been on some that its been really ruff.

Its an English and Irish tradition in the North Atlantic to send off a ship with a bagpiper playing. I didn't' even realize he was there until I walked out on my balcony and heard him play, glad my camera was still out.
