We went on a 2-week cruise and had an amazing time!
My tan is fading and the cruise feels like it happened a year ago, but it's been only a few weeks since we got back. I'm going to share some stories and pictures over the next few posts.
Our cruise was 12-nights with Royal Caribbean out of New Jersey. We visited 6 ports - Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, Antigua, Martinique, Barbados and St. Kitts.
The trip started with an all-day car ride to New Jersey. We've done the trip before and were prepared with Gravol for Little K (to combat carsickness), snacks and games. We stopped for lunch and made it to our hotel after 9 hours. Would have been quicker but we got stuck in rush hour traffic in New Jersey.

It was always fun coming back to our room, which had a king-sized bed, a pull out couch, and a fake balcony, to see what towel animal would be waiting.
