Plumcrush01's HM Recap (very pic heavy)!!

10 fun filled days with my DH...


We stayed at the luxurious Ritz Carlton in San Juan, Puerto Rico for 3 days.  It was a really nice hotel, but obviously very expensive!  Our dinner the first night was $200 & we got a $26 caprese salad appetizer (crazy!).  There was also a Tiffany & CO in our hotel!





 


We also explored San Juan, until my feet were about to fall off!!




 


Then we got on the Royal Caribbean's Serenade of the Seas for 7 amazing nights in a balcony room:



 


I surprised DH by having the stateroom decorated, as well as having champagne, chocolate covered strawberries & cozy slippers awaiting our arrival!






The ship was beautiful & has something for everyone:





They had an awesome honeymooners reception:




On the 2nd to the last night of the cruise our stateroom attendant surprised us with a bed of rose petals & "towel art" of 2 swans & a heart.  It was very sweet & super romantic!



 


Now time for the fun stuff...the Ports of Call!


We stopped in Barbados & went on a catamaran & went snorkeling with turtles & stingrays, then we had way too much Rum Punch : )





 


 


Then St. Lucia where we went on a coastal cruise of the island & visited the Piton Mountains & again drank a lot of Rum Punch!  Even though it was a very rainy day, we had a blast! 






 


Next was Antigua, which ended up being our favorite!  It has 365 beaches...1 for each day of the year : )  We went on an amazing helicopter ride of a nearby island with an active volcano.  The views were amazing, but the devastation of the 1996 eruption was very sad, as ~75% of the island was wiped out




Pics from the helicopter:






 


Onto St. Maarten where we went horseback riding & even went for a little swim with the horses!!







 


The last stop was St. Croix.  DH surprised me with a massage & facial in the Cruise Spa on this day, so we got a late start on the island.  That was ok though, because this was our least favorite island.  It was very pretty, but just so tiny (50,000 population) and it was kind of a ghost town!






Overall it was an amazing trip!  The only negatives were the rain on some of the days, DH got a horrible throat virus & was in a lot of pain, & also his luggage got lost on the way back (they delivered it yesterday though)!  I am very sad it's over...can't wait to start planning our anniversary trip : )

Awesome- looks like you had a really great time!  Sooo lucky that you got to go on a helicopter tour!


Just curious, out of all the islands you visited was Antigua your fav, or was it just because thats where you did the amazing helicopter tour?

@SoonMrs.P-it was our favorite even without the helicopter!  The beach we went to after the helicopter ride was GORGEOUS!  I guess they have really good snorkeling there as well.  The only thing is that it's EXPENSIVE...the cab ride to the beach & back was $80 and a burger & fries was $22!!  We LOVED the scenery of St. Lucia but once we got into the city, it was a different story.  The locals were very rude & it was extremely dirty & impoverished.  Everything else about St. Lucia we loved, but these few little things pushed Antigua to the top for us : )
