Your photos are fabulous, Karen (of course).   My folks did the Alaskan cruise via Holland America, and they came back talking about the towel animals. I wonder if there's a book on how to do that? Heck, it's probably on the internet!

Yes, they did have a book for sale the final night of our cruise, that explained how to make each one.  We didn't buy it though.  I bet you could find it on the interwebs

Yes, highly recommend Holland America Lori.  We heard tales about spring break cruises and other party boats, and Holland America is nothing like that.  The service is superb, optimal, awesome... We definitely were spoiled for any other...

Of course all kinds of things are to be seen and done while in port, but I also wanted to share just how amazing the ship is.  If you remember that I accidentally bought 2 romance packages, one of the gifts was dinner for 2 at the Pinnacle Grill....

The second part of the day was a treat.  After the visit to the Palace, we boarded the bus and headed to a Greek woman's home for a home made greek lunch and a swim in her pool if you desired.  We were greeted by a man handing out shots of...

Me, too!! I LOVE high tea!!   I do remember the shock of returning to real life after a cruise, when you have to make your own bed and hang up your own clothes...and maybe cook your own food and wash your own dishes.   I've never done...

What a beautiful experience!  Does that woman prepare the food herself, or did she also have helpers doing the food prep?

The colors are amazing, aren't they? Not just that more-than-gorgeous sunset, but the houses, the boats, everything!

I think she has helpers prepare some of the dishes, but she does most of the cooking herself.  It was an amazing experience!
