I know I said I was going to show you how to make a Topsy Turvy cake today but, I was super busy yesterday and didn't have time to download my photos. So I'll post that tomorrow!

Do you want to know what kept me so busy yesterday? If so, read on...

I decided, last minute, to book a cruise. So, I spent a lot of time finding the ship and booking the cruise as well as the flights.

Then, I had to go to the passport office because I'm taking my great niece, Trinity, with me and she didn't have a passport yet.

This is going to be her first cruise and she is SO excited!

We are going on the Norwegian Pearl. I've never been on this ship but from what I've read and seen on the Internet it looks like a great ship to take a kid on!

It's full of bright colors. Look at that carpet in the hall and even the doors to the cabins are bright and cheerful!

This is what our room might look like. Again, bright and cheerful.

I booked us a suite so I'm excited to see what it is like. Normally, I wouldn't pay for a suite but, believe it or not, the suite was actually cheaper then a balcony room.

I know we will have a balcony but, I don't know what the difference is between a balcony room and a suite. Do you know?

I found all these photos on the Internet and the Norwegian Cruise Line web pages.

The bathrooms look nice and big for a cruise cabin.

The toilet even has it's own room. Now if you cruise you know this is a big deal as the bathrooms on ships are normally super tiny.

There are several pools on the ship. This one has a spiral slide that looks like fun.

I'm sure Trinity will want to spend a lot of time here.

Check this out! A two story high Wii game. How fun. We will play a few games here I bet.

There are basketball courts, tennis, golf and of course the rock climbing wall. I won't be doing any of those things.

However, I think Trinity will want to do the rock climbing so I'll watch her.

Cruise ships these day are adding more and more things and trying to out do the other lines. This ship is known for having a bowling alley.

I wonder how hard it is to bowl as the ship is rocking and rolling.

I don't know but, I think we will play a few games to find out.

Oh in case you were wondering where I was going I thought this picture could give you a big clue. Know where?

To Alaska of course! We will be going to Juneau, Skagway, Cruise Glacier Bay, Ketchikan and then our last stop will be Victoria Canada.

I can't believe this but we are going to be on this ship in 6 days! This is going to make it 3 cruises in one year for me. Gee, I'm starting to feel like a world traveler.

I better get packing!

Three cruises in one year?!!! How wonderful! And Alaska! You are both going to have such a good time and the memories you will make. Each picture looks wonderful. I have never been on a cruise. I'm claustrophobic and I think it would bother me, though many have told me it wouldn't. Maybe some day . . .

This looks so good. The ship is beautiful. Boy, when you make up your mind to do something you don't waste any time!. Can you take your computer on this boat? If not, take notes and tell us all about it.

I hope you have a great time. That last time we took a cruise was in 1992 and it was a blast.
