Trip Report–Part Three
The first two full days onboard were “at-sea” days, spent lounging on the pool deck. As much as I enjoyed the ports of call, I have to say that I enjoyed being pampered on the days at sea as much, if not more.
We visited St. Thomas on Day Three … we chose to make it a beach day, visiting Sapphire Beach. The water was crystal clear ... I could see fish even from the water's edge.
Day Four found us at St. Maarten, where we elected to take a tour of the island.
Days Five and Six found us “at sea” once again. Day Five was the best day of all, weather-wise … in the low to mid 80’s and lots of sun. Day Six, on the other hand, was probably the “worst” day of all, weather-wise … rainy all day. Thankfully there was a festival scheduled for the Promenade Deck.
One of my “must-do’s” when traveling to the ocean is to get a picture of a sunrise or sunset on the water … with a cruise, I was able to do both.
Reluctantly we packed up Saturday evening for disembarking Sunday morning. While we still had more traveling to do (and were looking forward to it), we just weren’t ready to leave the ship.
Tomorrow, I’ll wrap up our Trip Report.
