My husband hates flying, so we decided to take a road trip to visit Savannah, GA, Charleston, SC and Raleigh, NC. In-between, we went on a cruise to the (Amber Cove) Dominican Republic, St. Thomas & St. Maarten.
I was more excited about the cruise than anything else.
But, to my surprise, it was actually quite disappointing because we got motion sickness and we weren’t thrilled with the forms of entertainment as well as the food. Ick! After a few days, we were sick of the food.
I yearned to eat real food instead of buffets every day. I mean, it was nice to just get food whenever you wanted, but it was also dangerous because it was mostly processed and I feared gaining weight.
Let’s start with the cruise, which lasted 7 days.
When we got to our room, we were greeted with the photo below – which was the sweetest thing ever!
On the 2nd night, we dressed up for FORMAL NIGHT. Since it was our honeymoon, the crew members came over with the cake – shown below – and sang HAPPY HONEYMOON TO YOU.
We did THREE excursions. The first was riding ATVS.
It was muddy and in the Dominican Republic. I let him drive because I was afraid. We got really muddy, but it was fun. We also drank.. a lot. I’m not used to drinking that much, but I just went with the flow.
THIS IS KELVIN, THE TOUR GUIDE, MY HUSBAND & I.
Next was snorkeling in St. Thomas.
It was absolutely beautiful and snorkeling was so much fun.
YEAH, YOU AHEAD AND SAY IT – WE LOOK LAMEEEE.
Next was a Sunset Cruise, which disappointed us because people were chatting, drinking and the captain didn’t even go toward the sunset. You would think she would considering it was the Sunset Cruise, right?
We went to a few fitness classes while on the boat, watched a movie, went in the hot-tub, swam, sunbathed and drank.
We decided that we aren’t CRUISE PEOPLE, but we wouldn’t have figured that out if we didn’t go, so it was a good experience.
This is just PART ONE of the #Alwaysn4evan Honeymoon.
Stay tuned for PART TWO.
