The Cruise of 2011

We have been talking about going on a cruise for what seems like forever, and we FINALLY did it! We went on a 7 day cruise with 3 other couples and had a blast. Just a warning - this might be picture overload ....

We flew into Orlando on a Friday night and stayed the night at the Marriott before heading to the ship the next morning. The first pictures of the trip were on the shuttle to the port ..

Here are Brock and Whit and me and Luke hangin out on the bus . .

We finally made it! Holly Ship!

The first night on the cruise we hung out on the "Lido Deck" and enjoyed a killer buffet and don't forget the all you can eat soft serve ice cream. Yes Please!

On Sunday we stopped in Nassau Bahama's and went to Atlantis. I could spend a whole vacation at this resort. They have the best lazy river ever!

Atlantis has a really cool aquarium with all kinds of sea animals. There were star fish that you could actually pick up and touch. Here's me and Whit checkin out the star fish. (can you tell we are sisters with the identical cheese grin??)

Luke checkin out the star fish!

Sunday night was the first formal night. Awesome steak dinner!

The shows on the boat are really fun! After dinner we went to the theater for a little entertainment!

The next stop was St Thomas. We docked really early so we had all day to spend on the island. We decided to do some snorkeling. Its amazing what is swimming beneath you in the ocean!

The last stop was St Martin. This was my favorite stop. Half of the island is French and the other half is Dutch. It was like we were pulling up to a little floating french city. The island was beautiful and so clean! We did some shopping and went to the beach.

Another formal night . . .

Me and Whit hangin out in the casino where we lost an undisclosed amount of money!

One thing that I love about cruises is the awesome shopping. Me and Luke both came home with new bling. I wanted to get a picture sporting the new watches but I guess I'll have to settle for this. Love you honey!

Getting home was an experience . . We ended up spending a long day in the airport. We were really glad to finally get on the plane.

We had such a great vacation, and I can't believe we came home to snow. Kind of a bummer after a week in the sun, but at least we can enjoy the snow with a tan! Thanks everyone for the awesome week, we loved hanging out with you!
