Cruise-a-Palooza 2013 - Day 1

We left the Embassy Suites in Miami at 12:30, headed for the Port to board the beautiful Carnival Breeze. The weather was awful...cold and threatening rain.  :(

As usual, the embarkation process was a breeze (excuse the pun). Carnival has this down to an art, and everything runs like a well-oiled machine. We were on the ship, eating our lunch by about 1:30

We spent the afternoon exploring the majesty of this unbelievable ship.  This is our fifth cruise with Carnival, but the Breeze is by far the most well laid out, best decorated and pretty to look at that we have seen. Gone are the bright and gawdy colours that we were accustomed to, replaced with light, neutral, basic and classy decor. 

The water fun area is unbelievable. Threepeat can't wait to get in there and play tomorrow!  Something tells me all three boys will be scarce this week! 

Dinner was amazing...Hubster had Sweet and Sour Shrimp, I had Braised Briset of Beef, the older boys had steak and Threepeat had Mac and Cheese and a Caesar Salad. On our last cruise, all four boys always looked forward to their Caesar Salad every night and this year is no different!  For dessert, Middleman had his favourite Carnival dessert, the warm chocolate melting cake!  

During dinner, Threepeat was not himself...we chalked it up to sheer exhaustion from a busy couple of days, but  when we got back to the room after dinner, he was complaining of feeling sick. He also said he was freezing. Sigh...one check of his temperature and we knew he was fevered...100.6 degrees. Low grade, but there. :(. He fell asleep almost the second his head hit the pillow and I started to worry.

He slept well, but I didn't, listening to him breath rapidly and going through all the horrible scenarios in my head. I prayed every time I woke up that his fever was just exhaustion. He so desperately wants to play in the water park, but he can't if he's fevered!  :(
