My wife and I have cruised quite a few times. Most of our voyages have been on the U.S. West Coast. This was to be our first time in the Caribbean. We were not disappointed.
We arrived a day early, in Puerto Rico. What a lovely Island. We spent the day at the beach before boarding the vessel.
Day 1 Found us at the U.S. Virgin Island of St. Thomas.
We enjoyed a catamaran boat ride and snorkeling in the pristine aqua blue sea.
Day 2 Was spent at St. Kitts.
My wife had always wanted to try a zip line. We were in luck and even lived to tell about it.
Day 3 Was at sea.
It was a great time to relax by the pools, and just soak in the sun.
Day 4 We discovered Aruba.
Not being up on my geography, I was surprised to find out we were only 15 miles from Venezuela and the tip of South America.
Today’s adventure took us to three dive sites where we explored a sunken German WWII vessel, Sea turtles and under water caves.
Later that night we were invited to be guests at the Captain’s table in the main dining room. An experience we will long remember. So very cool.
Day 5 Was at the nearby Island of Curacao.
This was our most relaxed and unplanned day. We hired a taxi to take us to a remote beach and arranged for him to come pick us up 4 hours later. The only thing better would have been if we had remembered to bring the sun block. We had spent most of the time face down floating (snorkeling) and by time we got back to the ship, these two tourists from Utah were fried. We were white on our fronts and red on our backs. It was worth it.
Day 6 Was another well needed “At Sea” day.
We came home rested and eager to sail again.
Thanks to Cuisemiles and the 20K giveaway, we will be in Alaska next year.
