We set sail out of New York City on the Caribbean Princess. We had a great time just being on the ship. Total we had four sea days. We read book, watched movies under the stars, ate LOTS of food (see pictures below) hit the gym to counter balance all the food intake (side note -- running at sea level is a DREAM! I actually liked to run/workout on the ship), we made sure it hit all the pools, drank fun drinks, and partied (mo style).
Our first stop was Bermuda. As you can see the water is AMAZINGLY beautiful!
We did experience a little tropical rain.
Our cab driver did not think we were very funny when Jennie asked if he knew anyone that has gone missing .. you know in the Bermuda Triangle! I thought it was real funny! He said no by the way.
Once again we decided to hit the beach. It was Sunday so all the locals were at the beach with their families. What a party that is. Finding a little spot of shade was not easy. But as you can see Jennie and Jessica claimed us a small patch. After dinner Stacy, Jennie and I walked up through old town to the historic fort. It was really cool to see at night.
Most nights were spent out under the stars watching a movie on the huge movie screen above one of the pools.
Does a beach get any better than this?
We actually started our day on St. Thomas with a little shopping. How can you not! We all got some fab jewelery, fun surf shirts, make up, and I got a bag. Then we hit the beach.
The water is so perfect at all these islands you just hang out in the water. There were little fish that would just swim around your feet and star fish that sat on the bottom. So cool.
Whenever the cruise photographers would come to take our picture we would do what we called "party face" I don't think they thought we were so funny. But we sure did.
Part of the reason we have so much fun traveling together is our ability to self entertain. See the above pictures for examples. Steamroller on a long empty beach, tricks off a bunk bed (that didn't actually work out so well for me) The fun never ends!
Isn't that half of what a cruise is about.
The picture on the bottom left is us walking back to our room after hitting the mid-night buffet. I couldn't fit everything on my plate so I have some in my mouth as well. I truly got into the spirit of the cruise.
Here we did a Catamaran/snorkel adventure. Again ... the water was amazing .. blah blah blah
Being on the boat was very fun. I will be honest, once you are a scuba diver, snorkeling is kinda lame. But we had fun all the same (of course we did, we ARE fun!) After we snorkeled we pulled up to this empty, perfect beach, with crystal clear water. We just kinda bobbed around. Took fun pictures with Jennie's water camera. Another amazing day in the Caribbean!
Jennie D and I met at BYU ... about 12 years ago? We instantly became friends and she has been one of my B est F riends ever since!
