We're back from our Caribbean cruise! (pic heavy)

I missed all you PW ladies, but we had a lovely time! I throught I'd post some pictures and tell you about our experience in case any brides are thinking of cruising for your honeymoon:)


First off, a cruise is definitely the cheaper way to go. For the two of us, we spent just over 2k for both of us, including air fare from Columbus OH. Also included in that is a trip to the spa for me, and a horseback riding excursion for the both of us through the rainforest in Puerto Rico. All food is included, however pop and alcohol is extremely expensive. If you're cool with tea, coffee, water, and lemonade like we were, it's no biggie. However, you're only in each port for a short time, and you might as well not consider the first and last days vacation at all. They consist of standing in line, muster drill, and generally feeling like a herd of cattle. The days in between, though, we lots of fun, and it was a great way to get a little taste of each port. We left from Miami, saw Nassau (The Bahamas), St. Thomas, Puerto Rico, and the GORGEOUS island of Grand Turk.

OMG!  I miss my vacation time just looking at your gorgeous pictures!  


Sounds like you had a fantastic time.   


FI wants to do a cruise some time, but we are both social drinkers and I am petrified of the alcohol bill.  PETRIFIED!
