    $0.00

    The everyday food onboard ship is absolutely amazing!  Kudos to the Executive Chef, his sous-Chefs, and “the lines”,  plus all the kitchen workers who so diligently produced fine food at every meal.  Breakfast is a wonderful mixture of choices – the traditional English fare, solid, well cooked and tasty (bacon being the biggest treat it seemed!).  There were the Continental breakfasts more on the French style, and then the hearty German ones laden with processed meats and cheeses.  It seemed that everyone subscribed to the English tradition of eating a hearty breakfast to set you up for the rest of the day.

    My mom had Parkinson ’s disease for 30 years.  She did not want “Parky” to stop her from enjoying her grandchildren, traveling, or being part of important family events.  Mom had just found independence as she had successfully launched all 4 of her kids, so she was ready to travel and see the world.  My family was ready to explore the world a little more as well.  My girls, aged 12 and 6 invited mom to join us on a Royal Caribbean Cruise to the Bahamas on the Freedom Of The Seas.  After getting approval from her Dr.’s and doing some medication adjustments, she was ready to go.

    I have strong memories from my childhood vacations to Keystone Heights in north central Florida to visit my dad’s mom and family.

Last winter, we stopped for an afternoon on our way to Seabrook Island, South Carolina. My return trip brought back these great memories and much more.
