Our Caribbean Adventure

Paradise awaits

Look Out Caribbean, Here We Come!

Serious Note: As I grow older I want to get to know my kids (kids?  they are grandparents) and their families better before leaving this planet. I decided for as long as possible, we would take a family unit on vacation with us and get to know them without the hassles of food, lodging, and entertainment. That means it is cruise time! This adventure is our first endeavor in this path we chose and Colleen/Mark get to be the guinea pigs. Let the adventure begin!

Where We Going?

We are taking a round trip to/from Fort Lauderdale on the Enchanted Princess; first to the eastern and then to the western Caribbean!

Our Ship Is The Enchanted Princess

Carribbean destinations

Enchanted Princess is a Royal-class cruise ship operated by Princess Cruises, a subsidiary of Carnival Corporation & plc. Princess finalized the order for its fifth Royal-class ship in 2016 from Italian shipbuilder

Fincantieri and her keel was laid down on 14 February 2019 in Monfalcone. Originally expected to be delivered in June 2020, the ship was hampered by construction delays after Fincantieri's operations were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and she was delivered three months later, on 30 September 2020.

After a year-long pause in operations amid the pandemic's impact on tourism, Princess inaugurated the ship's operations on 10 November 2021, when she set sail on her maiden voyage.

We are at R603 on the Rivera Deck, deck fourteen, amidships!

Colleen and Mark B519 which is on the Baja Deck eleven floors up amidships!
