Santorini, Greece

One of, if not the most picturesque place I have been to yet.  Santorini is absolutely stunning, from white washed buildings on the high cliffs, to sunsets over the blue Caldera below.  I enjoyed it more and more each time we stopped here!!!

Maho Beach

Last week in St. Maartin, a group of 8 of us took a taxi van to the other side of the island's Maho Beach. It was amazing as the airplanes fly right over top! We took awesome pictures, and experienced a sand storm whenever the 747's flew overhead. It was very cool, and there was an excellent little restaurant next to the beach, where we stopped in the afternoon. Probably one of my favorite days yet.

Zip Lining in St. Kitts!

In St. Kitts, I went on a Zip Lining tour with my friend from Shore Excursions. It was my first time and I absolutely loved it! I felt like a little kid flying high over the valleys and through the trees. We did 5 lines, one called "The Boss" 1350 feet high! So much fun! Afterwards we enjoyed tropical drinks at a restaurant overlooking the cruise ships!

We stopped in Labadee, Haiti last week, a beautiful spot on the coast where only Royal Caribbean and Celebrity ships stop. The beaches are unspoiled, the water is turquoise, and the hammocks are plentiful. Our ships donated plenty of supplies to the Haiti relief fund, offloaded by large UN trucks, and all proceeds from our stops there will continue to be donated to the people of Haiti.

Bacardi Tour and San Juan!

Last week in San Juan went on the Casa Bacardi tour, which was quite fun as well as interesting! Got to taste some of the signature rum drinks, and learn the history of the Bacardi family. San Juan is a beautiful old town with a large fort looking over the water, colourful old buildings with lots of history, and a sea wall wrapping around the coast line.

Phillipsburg, St. Maartin

My favorite port so far.  The ship docked in Phillipsburg, on the Dutch side of the island.  Took a water taxi with some friends over to the beach where we rented beach chairs and umbrellas.  The water was amazing, with great restaurants on the beach and shopping on Front St.

Designed for you!

Friars Beach, St. Kitts

Beautiful little secluded beach on quiet side of St. Kitts.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

San Juan was beautiful!  It was a very hot day but perfect for my first exploration of this vibrant port city.  Spanish flair is everywhere, although American, and filled with historic forts, museums, and churches.  Walked along the board walk on the ocean edge, home to many cats of all types.  Enjoyed the view from the hilltop, watched kite flyers, and ate passionfruit and coconut ice cream.  Later we went to Senor Froggs for some yards of Margaritas!  Fun day in San Juan!!
