Departing Chicago

This morning when we went to catch the taxi to the airport, there was snow on the ground. We were both happy to leave the weather behind for the Caribbean. Our flight was delayed a couple of hours, but we made it to the boat on time. I think it also helped that we purchased our transfers through the cruise line, so they knew we were at the airport running behind. Once we made it on the ship we found the food. It was around 4:00 p.m. and we had a muffin around 5:30 a.m. We were both pretty hungry. We went to the welcome show with Las Vegas-style dancers. We also stayed and watched a comedian. Then we watched karaoke. The last night on the ship, the winners of the nightly karaoke will put on a show. The cruise ship dresses them up like certain performers and even gives them backup singers and dancers. We will probably go. Just a fun little note, the South Beach Wine and Food Festival is in Miami starting on the 22nd of February. We saw the Barefoot Contessa while we were on our way to the cruise ship. A lot of the Food Network stars will be attending.
