Florida is different. Where it once was the Holy Grail of weekend getaways, it’s now more business than pleasure. Am posted at the Ft. Lauderdale Hilton — on business trip, and looking forward to stepping onto the largest ship I’ve ever set foot on.
Here on an inaugural cruise of a new Azamara/Royal Caribbean ship with a business partner. And, if you’re a cruiser, this is the cruise-line and ship (Allure of the Seas) for you. I’m more of a sailor — maybe 2 floors — on deck or below. This ship has more than fifteen floors. If they would let me steer this giant I would be a bigger fan. But I don’t think they’re letting me drive. Not even sure if I can get to the room where the steering wheel exists — will try though.
So Florida’s Coconut trees are welcome sight for my Park Ave, yellow-cab, gray concrete over-focused eyes. Not sure when we cast off, but will update the post. With pictures.
