I went on my first cruise this past December though it feels like I’ve been talking about it for over a year (oh wait, I have). I was so fortunate to go with well-seasoned cruisers but even then there are things you just have to discover on your own.
Seven Nights on a Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship
And it took me almost all seven nights to figure out aft and rear. By the end I knew the ship and had the rhythm of cruise life almost down pat. Naturally, it was at the end of the adventure.
There is so much to see and do on a cruise
I tend to babble and gush so I’m going to break this post down into a four or five part series. I’m sifting through my 2200+ pictures now and every picture brings me back to the balmy sea days. I’ll add links to each post here as they go live but here’s a preview of what to expect.
Review of the Mariner of the Seas
I was utterly spoiled with my first cruise and am still in awe at the sheer size of the floating city. Read my review of the Mariner of the Seas later this month.
Port of Call: Cozumel, Mexico
I don’t have too many pictures from Mexico since I spent most of it snorkeling. But I can share my fun-filled day with you. It was fun even if I didn’t get to swim with sharks!
Port of Call: Grand Cayman
We toured the colorful island from land and sea.
Port of Call: Falmouth, Trewanly, Jamaica
Another long day on a bus, then on a raft, and even pulled around by a tractor!
I am spacing the posts out so I can add some pictures to each and later will share some tips even though I’m a newbie cruiser. Tell me about your first cruise!
