Sailing the ocean Blue...

So, James & I ventured out into the world of cruises, and took our first ever cruise with a couple of friends. It was fantastic, awesome, fun, etc... We went on a Carnival cruise out of Galveston.

The ship was the Carnival Conquest.

We took a 7 day that went to Montego Bay, Jamaica then to Grand Cayman then to our final stop of Cozumel. We had a blast. The first 2 1/2 days we were at sea, so we took advantage of the boat and tried to experience most of what it had to offer...volleyball, putt-putt, fitness center, lido deck where we just layed out in the sun, bean bag toss, name that tune, bingo, texas trivia and buffets. So much food!!!

In Jamaica we paid for an excursion that allowed us to bobsled and climb Dunn's river waterfall. What an experience they both were. To get to them, we had to take a shuttle to Ocho Rios and saw some great roadside scenery. We even past the school that the Jamaican track star, Usain Bolt.

Here are a few highlights from Ocho Rios, Jamaica:

The next port of call was Grand Cayman and this was, in my opinion, the most beautiful beach I'd seen. The water was so blue and the sand so soft. We went to Seven Mile Beach and kayaked, swam and even shopped a little bit. Of the three ports of call, I would definitely go back to Grand Cayman first!
Here are a few pics of the highlights of Grand Cayman:

The last port of call was Cozumel and we had so much fun with our friends in Cozumel. We took a taxi to Playa Mia beach and did a lot of fun stuff, after the hour long rain storm! We snorkeled, jumped on the water trampoline, tried our luck at paddle boats and ate lots of food.
Here is our picture proof of Cozumel! ;-)

So, I guess the moral of my story is this...
If you are debating taking a cruise, JUST DO IT! Unless you don't like people, food and tons of fun!
