My East Caribbean Cruise Trip

When my nephew asked me if we would like to go to East Caribbean Cruise with them, I hesitated. Although Wei and I like the convenience of having-our-hotel-room-follow-us-wherever-we-go, but we don’t watch a lot of cruise shows, we don’t gamble, and we definitely don’t like the possibility of gaining weight. However, I miss seeing my nephew’s family, so at the end I decided to go.

Other than the day getting on and off the ship, it was a 6-day trip: 3 days at the sea and one day each at Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Freeport. The beaches at the first two ports were beautiful: water was super clean in turquoise color, and white sands were unbelievably fine and smooth. Freeport was a disappointment. We heard there was a beach, but most people, including us, didn’t bother to find out where it was.

Freeport day was a shopping day. That was it. ;-).

I had a lot of fun. Endless entertainment from my grandniece and grandnephew, definitely, was the best part!

      Yes, I am so glad that I changed my mind. Nice to spend a lot of time with those two lovely kids, and still had some quiet time when I needed it. Ha.
      Have a wonderful evening.

      Thanks, Mabel. You are right — it can’t be better than that! Felt a little guilty though, because I do like to spoil kids, and I like to make a lot of noise (laughing) when playing with them. Ha.
      Have a great day.
