The Big Day! The Big Day!

Posted 01-01-2009 at 15:32 by Rick

Hello everybody, and may I be the first to wish you all a very Happy Easter! Nothing like getting greetings in early!

Ok, so, what is Christmas day like on the Discovery Sun? Well, we had a lot of Round Trip Passengers today, people who decided to spend Christmas on a cruise to paradise.

A souvenir photo is produced on board from when our passengers come on board. Of course, when Scud…(that is my Nickname for Adele’s Mom, short for Scud missile…you know she is coming, but there is nothing you can do about it, you know what I mean?) came on board, it was noticed that she is a bit large. She is, in fact so large; they had to take her souvenir photo via Satellite!

Once on board, up went the gangway,...

Bright light city!

Posted 01-01-2009 at 15:27 by Rick

Viva Las Vegas! This place is slots of fun! I went to the Casino today, and what a fantastic time I had! The Casino in Port Lucaya is a great deal of fun, and a great place to spend an afternoon. When I was a cabaret act back in my long distant youth, I had a spot in the main room of a long gone casino in Vegas. I will always remember the room they gave me in the hotel had a mirror on the ceiling over the bed. I found it amusing at first, but when I woke up in the morning I was terrified to see what I thought was an overweight, naked skydiver heading towards me!

But once again, the rambler in me tries to take over! Back to this casino. When you enter, the first thing that strikes you is the size of the place, and the noise!...

Where are the Golden Rings? "Fiiiive Goat-skin Drums!"

Posted 01-01-2009 at 15:26 by Rick

Well, well, well, what to do today? I think I shall take a trip to the Bahamas, always nice at this time of year!
Coming as I do from a country of colder climes, I always find it quite strange to be confronted with Christmas decorations whilst in temperatures up in the 70’s (not the years, Fahrenheit!) But the Island to day was as sunny as the passenger’s disposition! And the Christmas spirit was everywhere. (You have never heard “The Twelve Days of Christmas” until you have heard the Bahamian version!) I think what makes it weird is there is no adaptation for whatever country you are in when the Christmas period is upon us. If you are in Germany, for instance, Santa has a different name (Nicklaus) but he still wears a big Red furry...

The grass in not always greener...

Hidey ho, Neighbors! ITMA!

Today, I decided to go to the Garden of the Groves. I am not a very keen gardener; in fact I once blew up my lawn mower.
To this day, I don’t know how, I was just mowing the lawn and the blade thing jammed and the engine blew up. Strangely enough, I never saw the hideous picture of Adele’s Mom that was hanging in the lounge after that day, either. The more cynical amongst you are probably thinking “Two Birds, One Stone!” I denied it then, and I deny it now!


Any-hoo I went to the tropical garden and met the present owner, a very nice lady called Erica. She is full of vigor and enthusiasm for all of her projects. I have been to a lot of these gardens in the past, the most memorable...

How to have a Wild night out in Florida!

Posted 22-12-2008 at 15:37 by Rick

So, welcome to Sunday. Last night was very nice. The Pax were disembarked by 23.30, and the Magician and I went out to the bar. We were both determined not to drink alcohol, I am still on track to get back my washboard stomach, (at the moment it looks more like an industrial washing machine, with a top loader!) and he had some friends from home over last Wednesday, and obviously there is a recovery period after such an event! However, our favorite waitress saw us as we walked in and began to pour our normal beverage, so it seemed churlish not to encourage such good customer relations!

Also, a dozen oysters hit the spot for me! Man, they are very slippery. I like oysters, but I have yet to find a pearl. Or her mother. It was...
