> Crystal Chix Cruise 2008

Here are a few of the hundreds of photos I took while aboard the Crystal Chix Cruise on the Carnival Elation (November 10-15, 2008). What a great time was had by all. If you are interested in upcoming creative cruises visit:

Kristal shops for Crystal

Actually, Crystallized(TM) -Swarovski Elements (a major product sponsor for our cruise) provided all of the crystals we used on our cruise. Celebrity instructor Kristal Wick is just browsing for beads and components in Old Town San Diego, cruise-eve.

Lisa Pavelka and Pam Hawkins are happy to see each other, the night before sailing. Time for Mexican food and fun!

Mimosa, shmimosa. Who needs orange juice when it's your birthday? Lisa Lambright celebrates with a swig of champagne after breakfast and before we set sail.

Welcome to my restaurant! Breakfast for some of the chix the day we sail at the Pam Pam Cafe & Grill. So good they had to name it twice.

Loaderup!!! Anne Igou, Lisa "Slammy" Lambright and Naomi Key (backs to camera) load a ton of goodies from our sponsors for the cruise into the shuttle bus.

If this whole creative business doesn't pan out, Pam Pam Hawkins and Lisa Lambright can always resort to new careers as tour guide and shuttle bus driver. To the port!
