It was such fun recently to have my brother and his wife on board Freedom of the Seas with us. They have joined us several times on cruises, the first time years ago while we were aboard Splendour of the Seas sailing out of Barcelona, Spain.
It goes like this: I get an email from my brother, "Where are you and for how long?" I respond and within a day or two I get an email, "We'll be there on (insert date here). See you on board!" So, we've sailed together in the Mediterranean, to the Panama Canal, and many times in the Caribbean.
No, we weren't out there on those jet skis in the image above, we were sitting on board taking pictures of the people out there on jet skis.
This was one of those wonderful relaxing weeks when we could spend time talking with each other, enjoying good food, and none of us was responsible for doing the dishes.
Captain's Corner in Pharaoh's Lounge. The ship's Executive Committee is available to answer questions. It's fun to listen to questions asked and the hysterically funny as well as very serious answers.
And, of course, there was the food in the formal dining room, Portofino Italian Restaurant, Chops Grill, and...
towel critter that always brought a smile.
It was a wonderful week of spending time and sharing space with my brother and his wife.
I wish this kind of a fun family gathering for everyone. We will always remember this cruise as well as the others we have all taken together.
I hope you've enjoyed some of the images from our cruise.
