Day Three of Our Cruise

There's a reason I skipped Day Two of Our Cruise. For one I didn't take any pictures, and secondly, we were sick. The swells were 10-15 ft high so we had a really rough first day at sea. You should have seen how many times we saw the clean-up crew in the Windjammer Cafe.

Here's Our Third Day on the Cruise. Our first Port of Call was San Juan, Puerto Rico. We arrived around two hours later because of the rough seas. But hey we got there, boy did I debate on kissing the ground. Unfortunately, Blogger doesn't like Macs, so it won't let me drag the photos to chronological order, so I apologize.

This was our cruise ship, Royal Carribbean's Freedom of the Seas. It is currently the largest cruise ship in the world. With an ice skating rink, and what's called a flowrider, a synthetic wave machine that pumps 30,000 gallons/min so that cruisers can surf on the back of the ship. Here's a link to the Flowrider

This was a fort built by the Spanish in the 1500s. During its heyday it had least 140 cannon from its turrets. It was overlooking the ocean, and had a beautiful view, but it was too dark to see.

This was Puerto Rico capital building. It has an awesome interior, with some beautiful mosaics. Did you know that even though Puerto Rico is a U.S. Territory, it has its own government. The citizens cannot vote for the U.S. President.

This was one of the staircases, that we thought was pretty and thought it would be appropriate to get the whole family into a picture for.

Your truly!

This was the same fort but a different view. We saw it as we were coming into port and it's obviously during the day.

I'll post more tomorrow.
