Wakefield Class of 1960
2012 Cruise to the Caribbean

Twelve Warriors and friends (plus Flat Stanley, visiting from Phoenix, AZ) made the cruise.  Our 2012 Warrior cruise actually began with lunch on Saturday, November 3, at the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City, Tampa. Thanks to Ken Scruggs, the host with the most, for arranging to get reservations for 23 of us.  Several classmates and friends from the area who were not cruising joined us for lunch.  On Sunday, November 4, our cruise was delayed about 6 hours due to heavy fog in the Tampa Bay channel, which is very narrow.  We were delayed boarding the ship until 10:00 pm.  We had a great time waiting to board, but by that time we were starving and there was no food!  Then they called a lifeboat drill and we didn't get to our cabins until about midnight, totally exhausted.  Carnival did kindly adjust our expenses since we essentially missed the first day of the cruise.  We stopped in Cozumel, Belize City, Roatan and Grand Cayman -- the best part, other than the scenery, was there was NOTHING to buy that we didn ’t already have or can't get here.  We all had a wonderful time relaxing and being together.  The seas were VERY rough on the last day and a couple Warriors missed the last dinner.  We sailed on the Carnival Legend, which was one of the ships that had to be towed back to port a couple of months after our cruise -- we were VERY lucky!  All in all we had a GREAT time, and the best part was just being together.   We are eager to cruise together to Alaska next year!
