While we slumbered, Laurie's coworker at AAA worked diligently to find us accomodations and flights home and we have a plan!!!!
Celebrity is allowing us to stay on the boat until Saturday. So, today, we are going to get our sleep-deprived butts up, eat and drink as much food as we possibly can on this boat before disembarkation. Take the train over to Monaco if it is running. If you guys didn't know, France is on strike. Get back. Take a nap. Put on our evening gowns and go to dinner. Heck, we might put all three of our evening gowns on. It's a good goddamn thing I bought those! Those should come in handy while standing around the playground, waiting for the kids to get out of school.
Then on Saturday, we are going to relocate to a beautiful hotel in Nice, for a two day stay. We are thinking we'll take a jaunt over to Cannes one day.
Then on Monday, we fly out of Nice to LAX, then I continue on to Vegas. So I will be home on Monday. I don't get to do Italy. I am so BUMMED.
Celebrity is refunding us the cost of the cruise. Laurie is working on getting us another free cruise in the future.
The old folks, without lap tops and cell phones, are going to be loaded up on a "cattle" train for a 10 HOUR ride back to Barcelona today. Can you imagine how dreadful? We will be so much happier in our beautiful hotel room in Nice.
We are just going to continue vacationing in the French Riviera like the rich and famous with the extra moola we are getting back from the cancelled cruise.
When the going gets tough, it's time to put on your big girl panties, and head to Monaco. Maybe I can double up our euros. No?
