Cruising to Mexico -- Day 1 !!
Fruit carving display and the main foyer area -- Mackenzie found this to be fascinating!
Beautiful "flower" arrangement, all made of vegetables

Mackenzie and Nelson together at the dinner table
Around 7:30 pm, our ship sailed under the bridge at the outlet to Tampa Bay. Nelson tried to get photos; unfortunately, it was completely dark and the photos did not turn out. I wish they had; the clearance for the ship going under there at high tide is only between 12" - 30" -- very scary looking as the ship is going under!
We spent the rest of the evening exploring the ship, unpacking, and enjoying a show in the theater. Then off to bed for some sleep!!! More adventure tomorrow......
