Family Cruise

My family had so much fun on our Christmas cruise two years ago... 


we decided to do it again this year!

The cruise originally was supposed to leave Houston on Saturday, December 21st, but due to heavy fog in the Port of Houston the ship was delayed a day. With one day less at sea, the cruise line changed out ports of call from Roatan, Honduras (which as OK with me since I've been there before) to Costa Maya, Mexico. We also stopped in Belize (on Christmas day) and Cozumel, Mexico! Cozumel is still my favorite.


Watching the tug boat lead the ship out of the port...

Obligatory safety drill and relaxing on my parents' balcony...

The bluest water and the Caribbean Princess...

My parents had one of the balconies on the back of the ship!

This ship had a movie theater on the lido deck. The first morning was a little chilly so Nick and I sat in the hot tub, watched a movie and drank champagne! It was perfect!

 My beautiful momma and me... 

We spent a couple hours each evening in the casino. 
I ended up $150 and Nick ended down $150...so as a team, we ended up even! I LOVE playing blackjack!!

Reminiscing about our whisky tasting experience in Scotland...

And of course, we had to celebrate Nick's birthday and the fact that he got his CPA license (finally!)...

Next up... a little Christmas cheer at sea!
