I took a 7 day cruise in the Caribbean with my sister Meri-lyn, brother Lance and his wife Deb and son Alex.  We were on Royal Caribbean and I have to say that I would not recommend this cruise line.  The biggest problem was that early dinner often ran so late you would miss the first show and then have to wait around 2.5 hours if you wanted to see the 2nd show.  We never saw a single show.  Meri-lyn was my room mate and we did all the excursions together.  I was told that I was always moping because I missed Jessica.  I didn’t bring my camera so I really only have GoPro underwater video and a couple pictures of my nephew Alex

In St Maarten where me and Meri-lyn did a catamaran and snorkel on the Golden Eagle.  I’ve been on this excursion before and it was awesome.

In St Kitts I ran ashore to get their marvelous chocolates.  I wish I had better directions but I found it and bought a bunch.  Then me and Meri-lyn went on an excursion on a catamaran to Nevis island for a BBQ lunch.

In Antigua me and Meri-lyn went on a marvelous catamaran cruise with snorkeling, beaches and a wonderful lobster lunch.

In St Lucia me and Meri-lyn took a beach break with Lance, Deb and Alex.  This was not a great excursion and I’d recommend something else like the Pitons and drive-in volcano.

On Barbados me and Meri-lyn all went on Tiami catamaran and snorkel with sea turtles.  This was a blast.  On the way back to port Lance and Alex went out in the netting of the catamaran as the waves got larger and larger until they were drenched with a big wave.

Finally in Puerto Rico before our departure me and Meri-lyn went to the rainforest with some nice waterfalls.

Caribbean Cruise

The value of our life is not solely measured by its length, but also by the depth of our hearts.

And breadth of our experiences.  And indeed the heights that we achieve.
