Celebrity Cruise

Posted by Nancy J. Cohen on December 8, 2015

Day 1, Saturday, on the Celebrity Constellation

There’s nothing like the exhilaration you feel when sailing away from land and knowing you are escaping reality for a week or more. We set sail from Fort Lauderdale for a ten day cruise on the Celebrity Constellation. Here is my shaky video of the sail-away:


Naturally the first place on the ship we headed was the buffet. I don’t remember what I grabbed for lunch, but I finished it with rum cake and pina colada ice cream. Dinner was shrimp cocktail served with guacamole in this martini glass:


I had a salad and prime ribs to start off my gastronomic adventure. Apple pie a la mode polished off the meal. From here we went to the welcome show, which entertained us with a comedian, singers and dancers, and two spectacular aerialists. We’d see more of these performers throughout the trip. Below is my cousin Janice who accompanied us on this cruise. You may find a character named after her in Peril by Ponytail.

    Way to go – we love cruising and Celebrity is our line of choice! Would love to do an authors’s cruise with special speakers (hint hint).

    Enjoyed the photos of your cruise. Brought back memories of my Alaskan cruise and all the good food which I went overboard on….eating, that is.

    Sounds like you had a great time. I would love to go on a cruise sometime. Maybe when my granddaughter is grown and out of the house and
    I have more money. LOL

    Perhaps some day I’ll know what a cruise is like– my husband has been obscurely planning one for some years….

  14. I’ve always wanted to go on a cruise. I would definitely be excited about trying the buffet too. I love to eat!

  15. I’m really impressed with your writing abilities and also with the layout for your blog.
    Is that this a paid subject matter or did you customize
    it yourself? Anyway stay up the nice high quality writing, it is uncommon to see a nice
    weblog like this one today..
