Pining for a Caribbean ocean view, so I loaded some more cruise pictures. The Navigator of the Seas is the one on the right. The other one is a Carnival cruise ship.

One of the stained glass windows in The Dungeon, one of the dance clubs. With a name like "The Dungeon" I expected Goth or Ambient music. What were they playing? Hiphop. Fooie.
I've been on two cruises....one in 93, and the last in 98....both went to St. Thomas. I did a before and after look at the pix I took, because Hurricane Andrew (or was it Gilbert?) blasted the island right after the first one....it looked totally different.
The first time there, I also rented a car, and drove over the island....got lost (can you believe that? :) ), but still had time to do some nice sightseeing, and swimming at Megan's Beach. The second time, I took the scuba tour, and had an absolute blast!!
I was a bit uncertain about the whole cruise thing initially. I'm not a fan of sun, sand, or salt water, but I ended up really enjoying it. Might even want to go on another one at some time in the future . . .
Wish there were cruises that allowed pets, although I suspect spelunking is more Hobkin's idea of a fun holiday.
