Some highlights from the cruise:
Day 1: Board the ship in Miami
The sailaway party:
Day 2: At sea
Bingo in one of the lounges. Gotta keep ourselves occupied.
70s Disco Party. Poor cruise staff, they made them dress up like the Village People. Ha.
Day 3: Samana, Dominican Republic
View of our ship anchored next to another one off the port of Samana:
2-for-1 Martinis during Happy Hour. The bartenders loved to perform.
Day 4: St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands
Walking around Main Street with Mr. J. For those that don't know, the prices for jewelry and liquor are amazing in St. Thomas. There were plenty of great bargains. No, I didn't buy anything this trip but I will keep the island in mind for future purchases. Luxury brands were 30% off of US retail prices AND it's duty free. You can't beat that.
View from the port of St. Thomas (look at that beautiful water!)
Breathtaking sunset in St. Thomas
Day 5: Tortola, British Virgin Islands
View from our balcony
Our ship was parked right next to one from Europe. Pretty cool to walk between them.
Day 6: At sea again, forgot to take pics. lol. Just picture lots of food and nap time.
Day 7: Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas
This is the cruise line's private island, so not much to do but hang out and be beach bums or eat at the BBQ.
Ah, the buffet line.
The "reggae" band that played on the island was pretty cool.
