Carnival Ecstasy, Wednesday, April 28, 2010


Josh and I woke up EXTRA early this morning.  We were SO excited to see land and thought it would be neat to watch the ship pull into the port for debarkation.  We were surprised to be the first ones out on the deck that morning.  Slowly other people joined us, but probably in total only 15 people.  It was beautiful to watch the sunrise and see the land in front of us.  There were lights on buoys in the water to guide us in.  Reminded me of a landing strip at an airport. 


When we pulled into dock we were surprised to see another Carnival Cruise ship, the Triumph out of New Orleans, LA.DSC_0072

The dancers that welcomed us to shore…



The SUPER duper crazy view on the way down the pier from our cruise ship.  I read it is the longest pier, it ran five miles long…from the ship into the town of Progreso.  I was so scared, there was no guard rail, just a tiny line of brick height things along the side of where our bus was going 40 mph as hugging the side of the road.  Josh took the picture.  I was seriously staring at my feet.  Out of sight, out of mind, right?!?

It was one of my favorite days of the whole trip!  I loved getting off the boat for the day and I LOVED going to the Mayan ruins.  The history was amazing, we got to mail our sweet boys I missed so badly a post card and like the last Mayan ruins I went to in Chichen Itza, this time I DID NOT have any trouble problems!!! :)
