Our Cruise- The First Two Days

We began our vacation by stopping at one of our favorite places to eat when we travel to New Orleans- Middendorf's.  They serve very delicious seafood!  We had fried catfish and fried oysters.
We boarded our ship (Carnival Triumph) in New Orleans
Views of the Mississippi River bridge

Enjoying the views as we cruised down the Mississippi River
The main thing we love about cruising is the night life.  We love getting dressed and going to dinner.  We love the formal meals they serve and especially the service we get.  After dinner we always go to the live entertainment show and then watch the karoke.  I laughed so hard the first night that David thought I was going to go into labor!  It is hilarious!
Our first dinner on the ship
David had steak
One of my favorite desserts of the week- creme brulee
We also like to eat our other meals in the main dining room instead of the buffet area because we just like the first class service.  They really wait on you hand and foot!  This is a photo of our first breakfast.  You can request to be seated by yourselves or seated at a group table.  We did a mixture of both.  We like sitting in a group because you get to meet many interesting people.  This day we met a couple from Canada and three lady friends who are part of a group called M.O.B.- mother's of boys!!  They made me an honorary member and I loved that!  We had fun getting to know them.
The rest of that day was spent out on the open decks sitting in the sunshine, reading, and napping.
The water views were beautiful!
