Western Caribbean | Nothing but Ocean

Today was our first sea day of the cruise we had three in total for the seven day cruise.  I was always really nervous about sea days, being in the middle of the ocean with nothing around but water.  Little did I know that actually I was going to love these days at sea.  Waking […] Read more…

Western Caribbean | Cocktails Over Cozumel

Today we were docked in Cozumel, Mexico.  Unfortunately due to hideous amounts of alcohol consumed and time we went to bed the previous night I missed docking in port which I was pretty gutted about as I had watched us dock on the balcony every morning, never mind clearly sleep was more important.  Instead I […] Read more…

Western Caribbean | Final Day at Sea

So today was officially our last day on the cruise and last full day at sea.  We decided to have room service on the balcony again today for breakfast while watching the waves and never ending blue waters.
