I really could never imagine a cruise could be as fantastic as it was! The Emerald Princess with its crew of 1200 was very accommodating to the 3070 passengers on board. There was entertainment around every corner on the ship and a cruise is a great way to explore the different islands at each port. How wonderful it was to enjoy the temperatures of the Caribbean in March and take in the beautiful beaches and coloured waters. The ship was so huge and so beautiful that I had to constantly remember I was not in a still building or town but on a moving 19 story vessel. The islands offered tours and adventures and the ship would dock for a day and we would get off to explore and shop. Shopping was abundant especially in St. Thomas where jewellery store after jewellery store had competitive pricing. This vacation is one we’ll remember forever.

It is getting exciting we booked our Eastern Caribbean cruise a year ago and now the vacation starts this weekend. Our cruise in on the Princess line and is for 10 days and we’ll be in Florida a couple of days both ways. We are going with 4 other couples consisting of 3 brothers and their wives and 2 brothers and theirs (although I’m not a wife!). Our mini suites are side-by-side and we can adjoin our balconies which is the reason we booked so far in advance.
We visit St. Thomas, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, Antigua, Barbados and Princess Cayes. I’ve never been to any of these places before and for 2 of us couples this is our first cruise.
