Even though I’m out of the business I can’t seem to stay away from cruising. Honestly it’s far from my ideal form of travel but with the bf still working on ships, it’s a great excuse for a vacation. This time my sister came along with me for a 7 day Caribbean cruise and a few days in Miami.
Our first stop was the private island of Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas, known for its crystal clear waters and white sand beaches.
We took a small boat to some coral reefs just off the island where we did some snorkelling.
The current was pretty strong where we were so snorkelling turned into more of a workout out than I had expected.
After about 45 minutes in the water we had seen all that these small reefs had to show us. Most of tour group had already headed back to the boat by the time we were ready to go. One woman even had to be rescued from the water (NBD, she was fine).
We spent the rest of the day splashing around on the beach. The water was so warm and clear. Probably warmer than our pool in the middle of summer.
Half Moon Cay was the first port I ever visited when I started working on cruise ships 3 years ago and I hadn’t been back until now. It was nice to go back to the island as a guest and really get to enjoy it without having to rush back to the ship to go to work.
Had a get a classic pic with our floating home in the background before we left.
