SIBLINGS share a room!! –      I have a feeling that Grant’s fav part about the cruise was dressing up every night. Love my siblings so much. Also props to Grant for matching his sunglasses to his shirt, so cute!

A Cool Breeze of Memories…

I’d like to share some of the most memorable things on our trip. So, by far my FAVORITE thing was probably the dancing. Walking through the ship, we experienced so much live music. Going from one end to the next, I moved my hips to the Latino music and jumped around while singing to pop hits all within a matter of minutes. Aside from partying our way through the halls, we ALWAYS got down at dinner. Towards the end of every dinner, the man on the microphone announces “IT’S SHOWTIME!!!”. Then shortly after, it was a napkin swingin’, high heel kickin’, carefree singin’ kinda show! The waiting staff got on some tables and performed their fun choreography. & my fam and I joined along by singing and well simply having a PARTY!!

Oh yes, yes yes yes yes. Yes. We must talk about THE FOOD. I have few words bc/ the food was h-e-a-v-e-n, HEAVEN!!! The buffet, the burger place (oh yes mmm, best burgers and fries ever), the burrito place, ENDLESS ice cream, the dinner appetizers + main course + dessert!!! Ahh, so good. The dinner menu had such amazing and fancy options, I ordered 10,000 too many things because I wanted to try everything!! lol. Oh, also dressing up for dinner was extremely fun as well! I got to do fun makeup and I tried a pop of color with blue eyeliner one night then threw in some red lips (along with my corn rows I got done) the next night. It was so fun to end off each day with cute dresses and delicious food.

Aside from eating, other on boat events included relaxing on the deck under the sun, playing volleyball, taking pictures, reading, napping, and playing GAMESS (Wolves, Say It!, Ticket to Ride…). ahh yes, LOVE games! Oh also, the last night my cousins, siblings, and I (all vary in ages from 15-21) hunted for different activities to do and managed to get kicked out of several places. First we tried the club O2 hangout but when a lady said we needed our parents to sign us in, we bolted. Then we tried a comedian place that was 18+, so they had to kick us out since we were not all 18+. Next, we tried a very young kids dance party. Kam and I started walking right in, dancing to the music, but then the worker asked girls are you in (*insert name of hangout group thing*). obvi we weren’t, so we had to leave. Then we tried to sign up for karoke, but we ended up choosing a night where only 18+ could sing. So then we left bc/ it was time for the dance show to start! We had so much fun laughing at the fact that it was so difficult to find activities that did not have an age restriction that discluded one of us.

As for the on land excursions, the places we went to were absolutely beautiful. The water sparkled and screamed beauty as the sun danced along the waters. It was truly blissful and magical. One day we went zip-lining and tubing in Belize. And the other two days we spent beachin’. Tried a coconut, soaked up the sun, went banana boating, and encountered raccoons. I thought the raccoons were gonna try to get me so I freaked out and walked away, but Kam ended up taking an adorable video of one raccoon grabbing a chip with its cute little paws.

and those are some highlights of our Christmas Break, full of vitamin sea ;).
