We flew to Orlando, and then took a transfer bus to Port Canaveral, where we boarded our ship on Sunday, July 3.
Our first port stop, the following day, was in Coco Cay, Bahamas. Coco Cay is a private island owned by Royal Caribbean. It was BEAUTIFUL and our favorite day of the cruise! We rode jet skis and the water was gorgeous! Then we hung out in some hammocks and relaxed, plus did some shopping. Below are some pics from the Bahamas! When we got back on the ship, we ate dinner in the dining room, our first formal night of the week.
The next day was a sea day, and we did lots of fun stuff! We played Bingo, played some 42 on the deck, and tried the Flowrider surf simulator. The guys also won a basketball tournament and even got medals! :) We ate dinner in the dining room that night as well, and the food was always amazing!
The following day we stopped in St. Thomas, which was beautiful! We did separate excursions on this day. Mike and I did underwater scooters and Christen and Ronnie did Snuba. Then we met back on the ship to eat dinner at the pizza parlor and then went to the ice skating show, which was amazing!
The following day was spent in St. Maarten, and our excursion actually got rained out. I was worried that it might ruin the day, but we ended up having a great day! We shopped, did some sight seeing, ate at the Hard Rock Cafe, and went to the beach. All in all, it was one of our favorite days!
Christen and I got opal jewelry in St. Maarten! Showing it off...
To finish off the week, we had 2 more sea days filled with fun and relaxation! Mike & I took a cooking with chocolate class, we hung out at the pool, played games and hung out! We also played miniature golf and ate lots, so they were 2 awesome days to end our week!
What a fabulous trip! We had a blast and look forward to making this a yearly event!
