I’m on a boat

Or rather, I’m going to be on a boat! Geof and I booked a cruise and we leave in a few weeks. I cannot wait to get away and this will be something different for us as a couple, since we’ve never been on one together.


Carnival Inspiration

We’re going to the Cayman Islands and I absolutely love it there. The island is beautiful and there are so many things to do. The bonus is that it’s the VH1 Best Cruise Ever and there are going to be a ton of concerts on the ship. Lifehouse, 3 Doors Down, Shinedown, SafetySuit and Carolina Liar (just to name a few) will be rocking the boat!

They’re also going to have 2 theme nights, one 80’s and one formal. It will be fun to put some ridiculous 80’s outfit together.

I went on a cruise to the Cayman’s a long time ago with a bunch of friends and did a tour to Stingray City where they take you out to this sandbar and you get to play and interact with the ray’s. I remember the boat pulling up and looking at this water that was as clear as a pool and then seeing these dark shadows swimming about. I was completely freaked out at first, but it was such an amazing experience. I hope to do it again, explore George Town, visit “Hell”, 7 Mile Beach and maybe even get over to the Turtle Farm. There is so much to do and I really hope to squeeze as much in as possible that day that we’re in port.


Stingray City


Hell - it was fun last time to send postcards to my friends back home postmarked from Hell. It's basically a tourist trap, but still fun.

Have fun! We love cruising! We have gone on 3 cruises so far, one was for a wedding (which was super fun), then our honeymoon, and last year we went on a cruise for vacation. We have already booked a 4th one for next February!

Sounds fabulous! We vacationed in GCM last April for a week, so gorgeous! We went out to Stingray City and then snorkeling...it was a fun day!

Vynuss said...

OH WOW!!! I've never been on a cruise!!! This looks like a BLAST! I'm a lil jealous, especially knowing you'll be on a boat with some of my fav bands!! :)
I think you're right, we do have a lot of "likes and loves" in common!
AND I love the terribly tacky 80's! Need some 80's accessories?? I've got quite a collection, there's an 80s band down here called the Legwarmers where we get all dressed up for.
Have a GREAT time!!! Can't wait to see and hear all about this cruise!
XOXO- Vy

I'm so jealous. First Hawaii...now a cruise. Not fair. :) The hubby and I are were just saying a year ago we were on our cruise. With a new house and a baby on the way I think it will be awhile before we get to test out our sea legs again!

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

WOW Jules! That sounds like a LOT of fun :-) You deserve it so have a blast!!!

Melissa said...

Cruises are so fun! We went on a Royal Caribbean cruise 3 years ago this August and it was awesome! You're smart to go now and not during hurricane season like we did! There was a hurricane nearby, the boat rocked a lot, and I spent a day crying and trying not to vomit (I was successful!)

Love the 80's night theme! That will be so fun!

Natalie said...

You should buy an extra postcard or two from Hell and do a giveaway. I find it hilarious!

Have fun on your cruise! I've had positive experiences with cruises in the Mediterranean and the Carribeans.

I started a blog that I think you might like too. It combines fashion and giving back to charities. Each week, I will give away 1 designer dress (this week it’s the Pink Adelson Shift from Lilly Pulitzer Spring 2010) to one lucky follower, who raises awareness of the blog's selected charity through various ways such as tweeting about it or commenting with an interesting fact. I am currently also giving away some great Lilly stationary items too. Please check out my blog at www.shop4charity.blogspot.com because doing good is chic!
