I was not intentionally without the blackberry but ended up forgetting it in the car before we left. It was never missed and I rather enjoyed the peace and quit of no phone calls, and bbm going off every five minutes. After being asked for a large tip for our bags safely getting onto the ship we quickly breezed through security soon to be stopped at the check-in counter to be hassled about Kim’s 3o year old resident alien card. After showing everything from passports to marriage licenses we were able to board the ship. We sipped mimosas as we headed to explore and eat… which pretty much sums up the cruise.
