I’m awaiting the start of the hockey game at 8 pm, and then “Under the Dome” at 10 pm, and I’m feeling oddly antsy, so that seems like a good time to write!
Over the weekend, we booked our second cruise, a 7-night Southern Caribbean. In 2007, we did a Western Caribbean cruise, and really enjoyed it; we’ve been thinking about doing another one soon. We were out having dinner with Ken’s Mom a while back and talking about vacations, and it turns out that she has always wanted to do a cruise. So right then and there, we decided to go on one with her, and I started doing some investigating.
I was really more interested in a Southern Caribbean, because the stops strike me as a little more exotic than the Bahamas and places like that on Eastern Caribbean cruises. The particular cruise that intrigued me the most was the one with only a couple of sailing days and the more exotic stops. It’s fun to lounge around on board, but stopping at the ports and experiencing new places is a lot more fun, in my opinion. We will fly down a day early to San Juan and enjoy a day, then depart from there. The stops are St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Aruba, and Curaçao. The final day is a sailing day, so I think that works out pretty well. I’m most excited about Aruba and Curaçao. Exotic, am I right?! For our adventure on the seas, we will be aboard Adventure of the Seas!
We booked a family oceanview aft cabin. It can sleep up to six, so I think three will find it comfortable! I’m excited to be taking another cruise, and I’m excited for Ken’s Mom to be going on her first one. I think she’ll really enjoy it! I wish we could take my Mom, too, but she refuses to fly, and we kind of have to fly to get to San Juan!
I look forward to exploring the various excursions we can take at the ports of call. I’ve already said that I’d love to do a zipline! There are always plenty of things to choose from, and I’d like to find a couple of cool tours. We really enjoyed the plantation tour in Jamaica, and I think Ken’s Mom would like something like that, too.
So next March, you can tell me “Bon voyage!”
