Cruise Day 8: Final Images

This was the last day on the ship. I mush have wanted to put in a good effort photography wise because the results are nice in my opinion, considering a full day sailing again. One of my favorite areas of the ship, absolute forward: Ocean vistas… I really liked walking the top deck at night and taking photos: They had a circus parade on main street: That’s it for the … Continue reading

Cruise Day 7: Back To The Boat

Not too many photos on the 24th. We started sailing back to Florida on the 24th, so more ship photos. They had another event on the main street deck (5) which was pretty interesting. Everything from towel folding to food carving demonstrations were being shown. By then they started selling cheaper merchandise such as watches and womens’ accessories. A self portrait of sorts. Two of the days we were required … Continue reading

Cruise Day 6: St. Thomas

After St. Martin, we went directly to our second and last port of call, St. Thomas U.S. Virgin Islands (18°20’N 64°55’W). According to the wiki, the island was acquired in 1917 as part of a defensive strategy. Residents were given US citizenship in 1927. We opted again for a tour, but this time we didn’t have anything scheduled. We eventually had a tour provided by sunnylistontours.com with our guide named … Continue reading

Cruise Day 5: St Martin And The Ship.

On day 4, I didn’t take any photos which is why I’m skipping it. For day 5 we arrived at our first port of call. It’s an island called St. Martin / Sint Maarten that is located in the Caribbean sea (coordinates 18°01’N 63°03’W). The highlight of the trip was a tour of our island by an American expatriate named Jose “Pacman” Jean. Look him up if you are interested … Continue reading

Cruise Day 3: Still On The Boat

Day three was still a full day on the ship because our first destination was canceled. I spent most of my time taking photos of the ship and the ocean. “The gleaming sun.” The ship life boats on the horizon. The absolute forward of the ship. One of my favorite areas. They really try to make the ship seem grand with how it is laid out and the material used.

Cruise Day 2: On The Boat

The second day of the trip we boarded the boat and waited for it to sail off to our first destination, which was Coco Cay (technically it ended up being St. Martin due to bad weather in Coco Cay). A large Christmas tree was on the main street deck (level 5): I managed to get a few nice bird images when waiting for the safety drill on deck 4: A … Continue reading

Cruise Day 1: Disney Magic Kingdom

I’ll be writing an entry for every day of the vacation as I go through each set of photos. We arrived a day early in Florida, so we all decided to take the opportunity to visit Disney World. It’s pretty expensive for a single day (around $87 a person), but worth it. I’d like to take a dedicated trip there in the future. Waiting in line for the haunted house … Continue reading
