An Amazing Vacation

I just spent the most amazing week with my husband! We went on a cruise to the Caribbean. Our first stop was in Nassau The Bahamas. We spent the day snorkling and laying in the sun. They even fed us a pretty yummy lunch! We had to be back on our ship at 2pm to ship out. We didn't get much time there but it's beautiful and I am told the Atlantis resort is amazing! We spent the next day at sea. It was so relaxing there was no schedule or anything that we had to do. We slept late, ate breakfast spent sometime on our balcony reading, went up for lunch came back and took a nap.. of course our favorite place on the boat was the casino... well at least for me I won a little over $500 on our trip! Our next stop was in St. Thomas where we shopped, shopped and shopped some more. We got lots of little trinkets and Jason bought me a very pretty ring for our anniversary. We took a tram ride up to what they call "Paradise Point" and you should have seen the view! You could see all of St. Thomas as well as the island of St. John. We got about 11 hours in port there. It was HOT and very humid.I swear I sweated off about 10 pounds!! We sailed overnight and spent the next day on the island of St. Maartin. This was by far our favoite spot. We shopped a little bit and then rented beach chairs and a big umbrella and spent the day on the beach just relaxing. At the end of the day we set sail for the good ol' u-s-of A. We were at sea for two days on the way back. They had a fab. show in the theater it was Vegas style and 80's themed it was so neat. Over all it was I think on my top 3 of favorite vacations we have taken. If you have ever thought about cruising DO IT!! It was so amazing. It was also so much fun to be able to spend some time alone with my best friend and remember why we traded vows 10 years ago!
