Meet Traveling Mickey

Hi.  My name is Traveling Mickey.  I am fairly new to the TT family, and I go on trips with TT and  I will be be making posts here as well to give you my own take on these adventures.

Recently the family went on a cruise from Long Beach, CA to Mexico, and I went along on my first journey, It took a while for most of the family to warm up to me, well some warmed up quicker than others, and things got a little wild.




We left Long Beach on the Carnival Splendor.  This is a special ship.  Carnival has 6 different classes of ship in their fleet of 24 ships, and this ship is the only ship in the Splendor class.  At 952 feet long and 116 feet wide, this ship is no slouch in the size department. She carries about 1160 crew and 3000 guest to ports of call all over the world.  In this case it was Cabo San Lucas and Puerta Vallarta.

I won't cover the whole trip in this post, just cover the first hour or two since there is so much to talk about.  The first thing I did was go out on deck and enjoy the view.  It was so exciting to see all those cargo ships, water taxis, sailboats, and yachts out on the water.  They all looked so amazing out there.



After that I decided to pull up on a lounge chair and relax.  I thought about working on my tan, but everyone insisted that I wear lotion for some reason.  This was a wonderful way to start a cruise and and even better way to start a vacation.

See you again soon!
