Cruisin with the Wine Whore

Posted by The Wine Whore |


I'm all about celebrating...

Okay, well maybe I just love having a good reason to celebrate. That's why for my second wedding anniversary and Valentine's Day, I packed up my wife, my wine, and headed to the Caribbean on a seven day cruise. I know you must be dying to know how it went... so like a cheesy 80's movie, I've created a video montage to commemorate the event.

Grab a bottle of your favorite booze, a bag of popcorn, and enjoy:





What did you celebrate while I was away?

Randy, welcome back and thanks for sharing your life with us! The wine world got a little more stuffy while you were away. I apreciate the levity you bring to the bloggersphere!

I've never been on a cruise, but I hear they are full of drinking and food.

Looks like you had a great time - Happy Anniversary!

Curious, did you bring the cristal and lynch-bages aboard or did you buy those on the cruise ship?

p.s. welcome home

Thank you Josh! I'm glad I bring a bit of levity to the wine world... after all, that's what it should be all about... having fun! :)

Great question, Matt! Fortunately, the cruise line allowed two bottles to be brought on board... before I got out there, I made sure to stop at the liquor store and pick up these two beauties. I figured I would have spent much more on wine on the boat, so at least I was able to get some wine that I would really enjoy!

P.S. - I snuck a few more bottles into my luggage (including a bottle of Crown Royale) :)

Welcome back Randy, looks like you had a great time!! I was wondering, did the cruise ship have the wine tasting or was that something you did on your own? Next time, sneak me in with the Crown!!

For Singles Awareness Day (Valentine's Day) I get out and drank with my fellow single friends. We attempted to cheer each other up by claiming that being single was great and we were all having a blast. Overall, a fine evening I think.

I'm actually really glad to be home... nothing better than sleeping in my own bed... those flimsy down feather pillows really get old, fast! :)

Great question! There were two wine tastings on the ship but this one was actually the better of the two. Most of the wines were just okay, but they did crack into the Opus One for the last pour... I was tempted to tell everyone how overrated this wine is, but since I was on vacation, I kept my thoughts to myself and just enjoyed the wine! :)

I used to love Singles Awareness Day! :) As I always say, as long as you are surrounded by good wine and good people, nothing else matters!

Cheers!

It looks like a good time, if only you had something to drink. :) Just kidding. Looks like a great time. We are glad to have you back.

My wife actually got sick on Valentine's Day, so ours was not too exciting. We celebrated our Valentine's Day last night instead, and I ruined some really nice steaks. :) The shrimp appetizers came out nice though, as did the champagne cake desert and the dinner wine.

It was a great time but I do have to admit that I missed blogging... isn't it crazy how something that can take up so much time, can also be something you love so much! I guess the same goes for my wife! :P

If only I had a bottle of wine for every steak I've ruined... oh, well, you get the point!

As long as you spent some quality time with those you love, NOTHING else is more important! Cheers to you both... hope your wife is feeling better!
