Returned today to snow and ice after a week in the Caribbean. Back to the real world! This was our first cruise and for those of you who have nothing better to do, you can read about our daily adventures in the next several postings. Our ship, the Carnival Conquest, is the biggest ship to sail out of the Port of Galveston. It is like a floating city, and we were treated like royalty. We couldn't leave our cabin for five minutes without it being cleaned and fresh towels put in place. Our bed was turned down each evening and our Cabin Boy, Melvin, was at our beck and call 24/7. A week is just not long enough!
