Cruise 2015 Part 2

Before you read this post, catch up on Part 1 of our cruise here.

We were lucky with great weather almost the entire week. Even when it rained it was warm. I was able to lie in the sun and read and relax. J was able to do all sorts of things and the kids spent most of their time at Aquanauts where they played games, did crafts, got their faces painted, did a talent show, read books, and watched shows.

I'll just touch on some highlights day by day.

Day 2 - At Sea. This was our first full day on the ship. J got to try the flowrider and I tried the zipline.

Day 3 - Labadee, Haiti. This was the day we were most looking forward to. Royal Caribbean owns part of the island of Haiti. There was sun and sand and the beach. It was perfect.

Day 4 - Falsmouth, Jamaica. We didn't pay for an excursion so J and I checked out the port while the kids were at Aquanauts. Most of the day was on the ship.

Day 6 - At Sea. The highlight of the day for me was the show I went to with the kids. There was singing and dancing. The kids loved their show and J had fun watching the flowrider championship.

Day 7 - Back to Florida then back to Ottawa. We spent most of the day traveling. It was a long day but nice to be home. Sandy was so excited to see us.

Super small plane for the Montreal to Ottawa leg of the trip home.

We all had a great time. It was so nice going somewhere where the kids were looked after and J and I were able to relax. It was a true vacation and I'm already missing the heat and the tan.
