{Cruise Recap - Part 2}

I left off after our first few days at sea as we made our way to the ports of call. The first port of call was "Grand Turk" on Thursday. John & I didn't have any excursions planned for this port. We just wanted to enjoy ourselves!

As we were walking from the ship

Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville

Cool lounge chairs. And I love our shadows! 

Swim up pool bar? My dream!

Lovebirds in Grand Turk

After we laid out at the beach for awhile, we went over to the pool side. It was great! Bunch of lounge chairs, a giant pool and the water felt great! I saw people with these things and all I knew was I wanted one. John got each of us a yard of Pina Colada with a giant shot of rum in it. It was glorious!


As you can tell, I enjoyed it! Plus, you can see my awesome sunburn. Ha ha.

On our balcony. I love the blue water!

A collection of all the drinking we did. Mind you, I had more than my boyfriend.

Towel animal number four. I think this one was my favorite! 

This was one of my favorite parts of the ship. It was an adults 21+ lounge with hammocks, our own pool and hot tub, etc. So no families here. Loved it! 

Friday (May 18), we went to our next port of call, Half Moon Cay! This is where we had an excursion planned, horseback riding. I was so excited!

We just hung out in the little shops area before our excursion

That way to NY! 

A nice couple took this for us. I was determined to have a picture of us in every port. 

My kind of place :)

The only excursion we did on our trip but so worth it....HORSEBACK RIDING! We went on a course for a bit before going on the trail. THEN, we went in the WATER! I dont have any pictures in the water but it was so much fun! I have to scan the photo I bought from the professional photographer they have because it was a great shot of me and the horse I rode....Dynasty.

In the water in Half Moon. The water here was colder than Grand Turk!

On the tender boat ride back to our ship. We had a lot of fun horseback riding! Quite possibly one of the best parts of the trip.

Lounging in Serenity!

Towel animal number five!

Stay tuned for the recap on Nassau, Bahamas and the rest of our trip!


  1. I went on a cruise in Feb and had a blast! Looks like you had a great time! Horseback riding is so much fun. I have been riding since I started to walk so I always enjoy doing that as an excursion!

  2. Well this post has left me needing a serious vacation! Too much fun.

  3. Great photos!! Looks like you had an amazing time..yay :) Happy you had great weather - or so it seems :)
