Traditionally as a cruise ship leaves port, there is a party known as the "Sail Away" party. This time however, our little Cruise Critic group of 72 passengers decided to have a get together as the ship left port. So we had our own Buccaneer Sail Away party at a pool area and bar right at the back end (ok, the stern or aft) end of the boat.
Now I am not sure how it came about, but there were a couple of blow-up dolls aboard, and rumor has it that they were brought along because there were a few single people among our group, and no one wanted anyone to be lonesome on the cruise...
The female doll's name was Francesca and the boy doll's name was Ricky. No I do not know who named them. Dave the diver seemed quite interested in Francesca...
Not all of the group showed up, and those who did were not all there at once, and needless to say, we were not there the whole time, so don't expect to see photos of everything and everybody at every function. :)
Since we had had dinner the night before with Steve, and Beth, and Judy, and Roger, after which we stopped by the Comfort Inn in Ft. Lauderdale and met a large number of them, we were already acquainted with quite a few of the 72 members of the Cruise Critic group.
The party was great, the pirate hat Kathy bought in Ft. Lauderdale was a hit... Francesca especially liked it, so Kathy gave it to her as a sail-away present.
We all had a great time and are looking forward to a great cruise.
