Back At Sea!

Kathy & I spent last week on our first cruise in nearly 2 years, aboard Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas out of Port Canaveral.  It felt good to get back on the water and we had a great time.

There has been a lot of sensationalistic reporting in the media about cruising, with much hype around the occasional rare but real report of some kind of outbreak.  Covid is only the latest hand-wringer.  I’ve said for years that cruise ships have been among the cleanest places we’ve visited.  They have always been very vigilant about cleaning in an effort to reduce the spread of all kinds of passenger-borne bugs.  A report of an outbreak of any kind is fresh meat for a media looking for anything to wring their hands over.  Yes, it happens.  But relax.  It was fun.  Yes, we had to take a Covid test before we left home.  Yes, we had to wear a mask on occasion.  But we have to do that at home anyway, and it was a lot warmer in Cozumel than it is back here in NC! 😉

We paid a visit to Kennedy Space Center before the cruise.  I took a few photos and will have more to share over the next few days.
