On Sunday June 25th, 2006, 3 days after after dropping Kelly off at the airport for her trip to England, Julie, Sarah, Paul and I left Waxhaw for Jacksonville, Florida. We were due to sail on Monday at 4:00PM but we decided to get to the port early and spend the night in a local hotel.
This was Sarah and Paul's first cruise and the excitment level was high all morning. We boarded the ship, Carnival's Celebration, at around 1:00PM on Monday and immediately made ourselves at home in the cabin. It had two lower berths and two upper that folded down from the wall.
We spent most of the next week eating, swimming and lazing in the sun in between watching the World Cup games live. Our ports of call were Key West and Nassau, Bahamas. After disembarking the ship on Saturday we stopped on the way home to Waxhaw to watch England lose to Portugal on penalties.
Hope you enjoy!!!
