A Week in the Caribbean

Two weeks ago we celebrated Jeff's parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary on a cruise to the Caribbean.  I have never been on a ship before so I was very excited with this adventure. The first thing I noticed as we were walking to our stateroom were the Louis Vuitton luggages that people brought with them.  

Growing up in an island, I was never much the waterway traveling kind.  But the open sea that first night was a sight to behold that it took my breath away.

Our first stop was Nassau, and this was the view from our balcony that Sunday morning.
For this trip, I decided that a Damier Azur Neverfull would be my LV companion.

Unlike most of the tourists, we were primarily interested in going to the Ardastra Gardens & Zoo to see the "Marching" Pink Flamingoes, Bahamas' national bird.
They are so beautiful and graceful!

 Next stop was Fort Fincastle with its panoramic views of the ocean.
As well as the Queen's Staircase, made of limestone built by slaves to honor Queen Victoria's abolition of slavery in the Bahamas.

 Our first day was amazing but relaxing in the ship was something I looked forward to as well.

The following morning's port was Saint Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.
 Our agenda for that day was visit the historic Beracha Veshalom Vegmiluth Hasidim,  the second-oldest synagogue (building) and longest in continuous use now under the American flag.
It has sand for its flooring!
Half of our day in Saint Thomas was spending it lazily on Sapphire Beach. Sadly, I was not able to visit the local Louis Vuitton Boutique here. 

On our way back to the boat, they took us to a scenic overlook.
The following day was a sail day and on Wednesday, feast of the Assumption, I was able to fulfill my Catholic obligation by attending mass in Sint Maarten. Not much to see there but shopping. 
The rest of the trip was a whir of activities with shows and theme nights.

It was really a blast but one of my favourite parts of the trip was the towel animals our stateroom attendant would make for special evenings.
Also, I never really and truly appreciate how beautiful the colour of the sea is.
"The sea is calling.  Answer it royally."
