This was my view for 7 nights!
We started out in San Juan, Puerto Rico and sailed to St. Maarten, Antigua, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, and Barbados. I've been to St. Maarten a couple of times and I love it. We went on an excursion to Orient Beach. It has changed quite a bit from many years ago. My husband and I were the only two people on the beach way back when! Crazy. It is a gorgeous beach! We enjoyed the water and the view.
On St. Kitts, we went on a "swim with the dolphins" excursion. I never thought I would do this in my lifetime. I'm kind of skittish of anything like fish, snakes, rodents, even cats and dogs. I love animals from a distance, but not at my feet. I'm so happy I had the guts to sign up and go! The dolphin shook hands with us, gave us a smooch, laid in our arms, took us for a ride on his belly, and pushed us on a boogie board. I was afraid to get the water in my mouth so the photos are pretty funny. It's one item crossed off my bucket list!
I would have to say my favorite island from this trip was Barbados. Again, we went on a beach excursion and the water and sand were gorgeous! And who would complain with unlimited rum punch drinks?!
