Cruising - Ports of Call

Haiti -
Royal Caribbean owns a small beach/island in Haiti. So we spent the afternoon relaxing on the beach and a little bit of snorkeling.

Jamaica - Dunns River Water Falls.
Its a national park in Ocho Rio Jamaica. You pay to get there, pay the entrance fee, they charge you to rent shoes if you didn't bring any for getting wet, and charge you for a locker. Guides lead you up the falls, taking video of you along the way. Then they ask you to buy the DVD. They say Jamaicans are the most agressive sales people. We agree.

We brought shoes, kept our bag and camera with us, and hung back from the group - we would have been boring climbers and ruined the DVD.

But we were able to capture our own cools shots.

Grand Cayman - Swimming with the Sting Rays
Our FAVORITE excursion. It was a little scary at first - all these sting rays swimming past your legs. But Scott got into it, chasing, feeding, catching and kissing (or trying to). They say kissing a Sting Ray in Grand Cayman will bring you 7 years of good luck. We'll have to make our own luck.

Cozumel -
A great way to end the trip. We rented a scooter and cruised around the island. Stopping to snorkel and get drinks at a local market.


  1. That looks like so much fun. You made Derrick and I want to go on another cruise. I can't believe those sting rays and I love the picture of the waterfall! I'm glad you guys had a fun time.
