Today was the day we got on the cruise ship! We checked the hotel to make sure we didn’t leave anything behind, and then we were off! When we got to the boarding station a porter took our larger bags and we went on with our small bags to get checked by security. We went into a line of people and after a little bit of waiting, we got to the 1st part where someone checked your birth certificate and photo ID. Then we put our bags on conveyor belt, and we walked through an electric scanner. Then we got on the ship and were given our room keys. We explored for a while, because we couldn’t get into our room until 1:30 PM.

The next day we arrived at Key West. We got off the ship and rented an electric car. We traveled around in
The day after yesterday (today), we went to Cozumel, Mexico. We ate a Breakfast and then we arrived at Cozumel. We got off at 1:00, and Dan and Dad went to the Mayan Ruins, while my Mom and I went to a Dolphin Swim and Ride. We took a 7 minute bus ride to Dolphinaris. When we got there we put on life vests, and got a quick explanation of hand signals. Then it was time to get into the water. We got in and the trainer told us that the dolphin’s name was Linco. The dolphin swam around and let us feel his leathery skin. I put one hand on my chest and the other pointed to the left. This was one of the hand signals.

Today was a full day at sea. I really didn’t do much other than go to the arcade with Dan and buy candy. I went to pack for tomorrow when I was leaving and then I saw that there was going to be a kids party at 10:00 PM, so I went. At the party there was musical chairs, dancing, and PlayStation. I mainly played musical chairs and danced but I played PlayStation for a few minutes after that and then my parents picked me up for me to go to bed.
