Another cruise

I've been away with my husband on another cruise, this one in the southern Caribbean area. We sailed out of Colón, Panama, on a Royal Caribbean ship, Oasis of the Seas. Before the cruise, we spent a night in a resort hotel in Colón, and I was delighted to see their display of santons! These are a bit larger than the ones we have, and their display is much more detailed than I have room for in our smallish home.

When we boarded our ship, we saw that it had been decorated, too, for the holidays! That's the first time I've been on a ship with Christmas decorations. The Centrum area, where people gather to sit, dance, visit, etc., was just lovely! The tree was enormous, and each level of cabins had greenery with little lights and changing lighting effects. The red lighting you see here was periodically green or blue or any of several other colors.

Here's a closer view of part of the tree, with the inside glass elevators behind. The "chandeliers" you see hanging near the top were actually part of an entertainment scheduled one evening.

On one deck level, there was also an adorable display of gingerbread houses.

All of these little touches made our two at-sea days seem really festive! I'll show you more about our ports of call in a later post.
