Fantastic mini-vacation in the middle of my month off…. and what a great way to spend the week!  My friend and colleague, Elizabeth, invited me to cruise on the Celebrity Summit, a week long trip from Bayonne, NJ, to Bermuda.

We boarded on Sunday, July 29, and set off… passing the Statue of Liberty on the way out of the Harbor.

On Wednesday, August 1, we arrived in Kings Wharf, Bermuda, and docked for the next two nights and three days.  The week we were there also happened to be the Annual Cricket Cup Match, which meant a 5 day weekend for the locals, and all the shops were closed!  We had a great time anyway, taking a shore excursion that involved a catamaran, snorkeling, swimming and the locally popular Bermuda Swizzle (Rum Punch), made with three rums, orange, grapefruit and pineapple juice, and grenadine.  We also hit Elbow Beach, a beautiful, not-at-all busy beach… and the local hangout, Snorkel Park, for an evening of drinks and foam!  We took the ferry to Hamilton and had lunch at the Bermuda Bistro, which is a great little restaurant in the middle of town.

We tried a different restaurant on board every night, and were treated like royalty.  The entertainment was spectacular, the drinks were flowing, the sun was shining, the ride was smooth, the week flew by!
