Allen update


Travel yesterday, 3/9, to Ft Lauderdale was OK. Our wheelchair guy at the airport hooked us up with a ride to our hotel. Nice clean Escalade. Flat rate. Renaissance Hotel - Port Everglades is very nice. 

Boarded the Celebrity Constellation about 1 PM Saturday. Sail tonight. Next 2 days at sea. Will arrive in Aruba Tuesday AM. 

Settled into our cabin - very nice Royal Suite. Met our cabin steward, Olivar, and butler, George. Relaxed a bit -  really needed it.  Went to the welcome show. It appears there is lots of excellent music talent on this ship.  We are looking forward to the shows. 

Sunday - breakfast in our suite. Joined others for trivia three times. We have very nice teams.  Did OK but didn't win. Listened to Caribbean music poolside.  Nice tea delivered by George. Dinner in the Italian Tuscan Grille tonight. Dinner was fabulous!

Monday, 3/12, at sea. Relaxing day. Breakfast in the cabin.  George set up white tablecloth and roses. Morning trivia- so-so.  Cinnamon ice cream. 

Party band by the pool. Met Nigel & Margaret - a nice couple from England. Chatted for over an hour. We will probably miss afternoon tea due to trivia. 

Back to our normal dining room table tonight. We'll see if anyone else shows up. We were alone on Saturday and we were in a Specialty restaurant last night. 

The ship's cast show was excellent last night. Ventriloquist tonight - so, we might go to a movie - Bridesmaids. 

Met our table mates tonight. Two very nice couples - one retired in Sarasota and one from Australia. Saw Bridesmaids at the cinema - not our kind of movie.
