Good morning,

Are those roses pretty or what?  Some friends sent them to us on board Freedom of the Seas.
There is a florist shop on board the ship and the arrangements they create are just lovely.  There is a fantastic aroma of fresh flowers in our stateroom today.

This is so pretty, I just wanted to share it.  I hope you have many pretty things in your life today, too.

Very best,

We sailed on Rhapsody of the Seas last year. I wonder if it belongs to the same line.

Good morning,

Yes, the roses are wonderful. I am so glad I got those images so I can enjoy for them for a long time.

Rinkly, yes, Rhapsody of the Seas is also a Royal Caribbean International ship. Rhapsody is a Vision Class ship, one of my favorites. We spent a great deal of time on one of her sisters, Splendour of the Seas as it traveled to ports around the world.

Thank you, ladies, for stopping by.

I agree, Debbie, flowers are always a mood booster! I just love flowers everywhere and anywhere.

Beatrice, the roses are from Norwegian friends of my mother-in-law who we hosted when they visited us. So very sweet and, yes, totally unexpected. :)
