I Would Rather…

Dinner after a fun day on St. Maarten

I would rather be in a classic wooden row boat out on a quiet pond than on a jet-ski skimming across a lake.

I would rather have coffee with a friend, sitting at a little bistro table than be in a huge crowd of people whose drinks include a little paper umbrella.

I would rather listen to Il Divo than… okay… this strikes me funny.  I was going to name some rock star, but can’t think of one!  Well, you get the picture.

I would rather waltz to Moon River than do the YMCA.

I consider myself a fairly well-rounded person.  Try to do a little of everything… taste it all, take in the sights and sounds of this incredible planet.  But when it’s all said and done, I prefer things calm and peaceful.

If you’re nodding in agreement, let me propose a cruise on Holland America… the ultimate in relaxation, beautiful dining, wonderful music.  Everything is soothing, even when the seas are high.

If, on the other hand, you’re nodding off to sleep at the thought of teak decks and stringed quartets, then another cruise line might be for you!

There’s nothing in it for me to recommend Holland America over any other company… the line is just one of my honest-to-goodness favorite things, and I’m happy to say so.

I’m typing this up tonight having just returned to my “stateroom” from another fabulous night of fine dining and entertainment.   I felt like I was taking a trip back to Ricky Ricardo’s club.  I suppose there was a little bit of Lucy in me… wishing I could have at least 5 minutes up on the stage in an evening gown, singing my heart out.  Filet mignon and lobster on this final formal night.  It means this cruise is just about over.  Which means it’s time to start looking at the calendar, dreaming, and saving those dollars for the next escape.


At home on the water!

    I’m glad you had a fabulous time! (I knew you would!) I’m also very glad you are home… I missed you! But, “I would rather” sit at your table with a cup of coffee and hear all about it than sit here on the computer!!
