One word....it was AWESOME!!!!! The only thing that put a damper on the cruise is the cruise line lost Chris' luggage. UGH! Even though he was totally pissed and we weren't happy when we first got on the ship, it all worked out. The cruise line paid for Chris' tux rental, they gave him free laundry service, toiletries, and two t-shirts. The airline told him that he can spend up to $75 a day on whatever he needs to get by and they would reimburse him, but he didn't do that. It all worked out. It sucked rushing to get on the ship since we had only 15 minutes until it was time to leave port, but they actually didn't leave for another hour b/c they were waiting for passengers whose flight wasn't coming to Ft. Lauderdale until 4:15 and the ship was suppose to leave at 4:30. We were at San Juan, Puerto Rico at 4:30 in the afternoon on Monday. Yuck, you would think since its a tourist site they would clean up a bit. The only thing that was exciting at San Juan is going to the bar called Senor Frog. We stayed there for 5 hours. I wouldn't mind leaving that out of the itinerary.
On Tuesday, we arrived in St. Thomas and did some shopping. We bought a digital camera! Woohoo, no more waiting for me to get pics develop. We bought 3 liters of alcohol for only $32! We did the Shipwreck snorkel adventure. That was so cool!!! Its another world down there. Hopefully the underwater camera took good pics. After the snorkeling, we took a 2 hour tour of the island and got some great shots. On Wednesday, we were at St. Martin, on the Dutch side. We only did more shopping! On Thursday we were at sea and Friday we arrived in Nassau, Bahamas. We were at Nassau for such a short time. We got on the island at 2:30 and had to be back by 7. We did the Stingray excursion at 3, which lasted a couple hours and majority of the shops close at 6. Since there were cruise ships in Nassau that day the water for the stingrays were cloudy and couldn't see them when you stuck your head underwater. It was a disappointment. I got a gorgeous bracelet while on the ship. The bracelet has diamonds and tanzanite. Chris and I decided that were had too much fun to only stop on one cruise. Imp sure we will be cruising again sometime in the future. We had a great time and cannot wait to do it again!
