Deke and I went on our first ever cruise! And what better way to sail than through the Caribbean? Oh my how it was wonderful. We left from Miami, Florida and stopped in Half Moon Cay, Bahamas - St. Thomas, Virgin Islands - Grand Turk, Turk and Caicos Islands - and San Juan, Puerto Rico. We learned SO much about cruising and will list our notes in a later post. For now here are some of our pictures!
The Bahamas had the most beautiful, pristine beaches. The white sand was like powdered sugar - light and fluffy!
We found a pirate ship in the Caribbean! Arg!
The water color was beyond words. So beautiful!
We loved coming back to our room every night to turned down sheets, mints on our pillows, and cute little towel animals!
They had a newlywed game (even though we've been married for two years) and got to participate. Only 3 couples were selected out of 3,500 guests! Good thing my hubby knows how to work a crowd! Here is our prize.
Formal night! It was the only night I wore makeup and did my hair the entire week!
We found a fire department in the Virgin Islands. They were kind enough to show us their department and take a picture with Deke.
What a great spot to read a great book. Ahhhh... lovely.
I love this picture. It was in a dungeon in El Morro where a caption was held captive.
While in Puerto Rico we visited Fort San Felipe Del Morro and Fort San Cristobal. It was so interesting learning about the history there.

Party on deck!
We spent a lot of time in these chairs on the boat. They were perfect for afternoon naps!
We even got to learn how to make our own towel animals! So fun!
All-in-all it was a fabulous trip. We are now in love with cruising, even though we think cruises are slave ships. Thats definitely for another post! lol
