MORE miscellaneous leftovers…, including the cruise ship that lost the man overboard (Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas — the largest cruise ship in the world!) last Thursday (1/8/15), without realizing that he was overboard! The Disney Magic came by several hours later, threw him a life preserver and stopped to pick him up. Ironically, those two ships are side by side here, where they docked when we were all in port at Cozumel, Mexico.
If you’re on a cruise where the last day of the trip is a “day at sea” (no stops before you arrive home), check out the possibility of taking a “tour of the ship” as one of your excursions. FASCINATING! Ours lasted about 3 hours (you HAVE to be able to walk and climb stairs well, ’cause they go down to areas where the only elevators are to the kitchen or laundry rooms), and ended up on the bridge. Of course, I wanted to be the one (in red) standing next to the Italian Captain in our “class trip” picture!
