Last week, I took a vacation. I was burnt out and needed some time to myself. I decided to do something nomadic backpackers don’t normally do…ever: I went on a cruise. After all, a cruise is the quintessential vacation, right? What better way to relax than to go on one? The cruise was actually a lot more fun than I thought it would be, but I’ll save the blogs about the cruise for later. For now, let’s talk about my vacation:
Day 1 – Fort Lauderdale
It was cloudy and rainy in Florida, so I grabbed a Starbucks (yes, the Oasis of the Seas has an onboard Starbucks) and explored the ship.
Day 2 – At Sea
Day 3 – Labadee, Haiti
At the beach:
Looking at the ship:
Day 4 – Falmouth, Jamaica
Day 5 – At Sea
Day 6 – Cozumel, Mexico
Jason, my cruise buddy, and I being cheesy tourists:
How could we skip the famous Señor Frogs?
They even made me a hat:
Day 7 – At Sea
And that is how I spent seven-day cruise vacation.
Note: Royal Caribbean provided my cruise for free. I’ll be reviewing the actual experience next week.
