Port Days #1 & #2 ~ St. John & St. Kitts

St. John

Our first stop!  The weather was gorgeous and we booked a fantastic catamaran excursion to St. John, as we had already visited St. Thomas once before. Our boat dropped anchor at Honeymoon Beach and we took the dingy to shore for some swimming and beach relaxation. We dove into the beautiful, crystal-clear water, which is when — dun, dun, duuuuuun — my husband’s wedding band somehow slipped off his finger. We spent pretty much the rest of our time there looking for the ring, but even with the help of some friendly snorklers nearby, we could not find it. Chris was a mess…I did my best to be supportive. It was, after all, just a ring and shouldn’t ruin an otherwise wonderful outing. We made our way back to the catamaran and drowned our sorrows in rum punch, which went a long way in brightening our spirits before returning to the ship for dinner and setting sail to St. Kitts.  Needless to say, we didn’t take a lot of pictures at this particular port.

As an aside, we called the jeweler who made our wedding bands and ordered a new ring while still on the cruise, which was ready by the time we returned from the trip — and we saw our officiant two weeks later at a friend’s wedding, who was kind enough to bless the rings again, so alls well that ends well.

Another wonderful day in paradise!

St. Kitts

We took another excursion that started off on a catamaran — where the rum punch and Carib flowed freely, even in the early AM!

St. Kitts

We made our way around the coastline of St. Kitts before meeting a bus that would later take us to the slowest train on Earth, guiding us through the rest of the island.

We hopped on a bus that brought us back to port where we did some shopping (mainly for a wedding band!) and stopped at Fat Tuesdays for some frosty adult beverages before heading back to the ship for a late lunch.

We enjoyed more activities on the ship that night — like the sail away party, the variety show and the late night comedy hour — all while on our way to St. Lucia!
