Freedom of the Seas...Here We Come

Been awhile between posts.  So much going on lately, personally and professionally.

Personally...we have bought a new home and, naturally, that has taken up a lot of time and energy.  Professionally, Disney's Free Dining Offer and honeymoon planning season has kept me hopping which is a really good thing.  The only negative is that all of the busyness has kept me from blogging.

So here I am...blogging only so that all of you will know what will again keep me from blogging over the next 2 weeks or so.  Another piece of professional and personal exciting news is that we are heading out this weekend (9/21/12) on a much needed vacation aboard Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas.  Uber-excited does not encapsulate how giddy I am about this trip.  The itinerary is a repeat for us (Eastern Caribbean) and so is the ship.  That just means I will spend less time trying to take a bunch of pictures and more time getting some much-needed rest and relaxation.

So stay tuned for my review again of the ship and the ports of call when we return.  But in the meantime, if you are an avid cruise enthusiast like us, you might be interested in checking out this cool webcam that is strategically placed along the bank (atop Fishlips Waterfront Bar and Grill) in Port Canaveral.  On cruise line arrival and departure days, it monitors the the various cruise ships in port very closely.  They will zoom in on each ship as it is pushing away from the dock and as it starts heading out to sea.  The camera is so clear and the sound so good, that you can see the faces of the passengers and even hear some of the sail away party going on onboard.  So...if you happen to be checking it out this coming Sunday (Sept 23rd), look for the guy waving and smiling really big...that will be me.
