Hello out there, in Blog World! I hope you’ve all been well while I’ve been out gallivanting around the Caribbean in a rather large boat. We had the most delightful vacation, and I’m going to tell you ALL about it. I’ll do my patented Vacation from A to Z™ post… but I’ve got so many photos to share this time that I’m just going to do a few letters each post. (You’re welcome.) But here is a little teaser of what’s to come…
Accidental Nudity … TWICE!
Girl on Girl Action!
Death-Defying Feats of Bravery!
I’m sure you’re ready to hear all about it so let’s start out with…
A is for Allure of the Seas—the biggest cruise ship in the world and our home for the past week. Let me tell you, this ship is HUGE and BEAUTIFUL and really FUN. There was tons to do on board, and the design was excellent. If you get a chance to sail on this ship (or her sister ship, Oasis of the Seas), you’re in a for special treat. We’ve been on cruises before but were anxious to try out this new class of megaship and it was extremely impressive. Well done, Royal Caribbean!
B is for Balloon Artistry. In the Boardwalk Neighborhood of the ship (more on this later), a balloon artist created these amazing balloon animals for the kids during sea days. This lady was incredibly talented and had her own designs. BB got a monkey. (By the way, don’t ever bring it up to him … we left it on the ship and he is still upset about it.)
C is for Clowns … as in The Jenners Family Clown Act. Although we don’t have an act on the ship (yet), we got a series of family portraits taken during a photo session at one of the on-board photo studios and I think it captures the dynamic of our family quite well. And, as a bonus, you get to see BB’s face for the first time … albeit in all his disguised clown glory!
D is for Dolphins… as in swimming with dolphins. It was glorious!!! Best of all, BB didn’t freak out and got to enjoy himself.
E is for the Eastern Caribbean. We visited three ports of call: Nassau Bahamas; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; Phillipsburg, St. Maarten. Having sailed in the Western Caribbean several times, I have to say I think I’m partial to the islands of the Eastern Caribbean more.
Coming up next: F through J. (A little tease for you … F is for Flowrider.)
