Caribbean Cruise Photo Diary

{ South Beach, Miami }

We embarked upon the Oceania Riviera at The Port of Miami on a Monday, January 23 and returned on Thursday, February 2. Cruising the Caribbean for 10 fun & sun filled days/nights –  we had 4 full sea days – 2 on the front end, 2 on the back end – stopping in the following ports along the way:
– St. Barth’s  – Barbados – St. Lucia – Antigua  – Tortola –

This was such a beautiful itinerary and I had never been to ANY of these islands! This was such a special cruise….the whole family was together { mom, dad, sister, bro-in-law, me & Adam} to celebrate Dad’s 65th birthday! This was Adam’s first cruise – ever – and I totally love that his first cruise experience was with me <3

{ St. Barth’s }

First stop!? St. Barth’s. I’m so happy I was finally able to experience this beautiful, European-vibed Island. St. Barth’s was just as gorgeous (and luxurious) as I imagined and I’m hoping to, at some point, return here for more than just an afternoon! While we were here, we spent the day sipping Sangria at Eden Rock Hotel and sunbathing on St. Jean Beach.

{ Barbados }

Barbados was our second stop and another favorite of mine! Adam and I spent the day Paddle Boarding & walking all over the place exploring as much as we could before it was time to get back on the ship sail away to our next destination…

{ St. Lucia }

St. Lucia was just kinda ehh…Me & Adam headed over to Pigeon Island National Park for a little hiking & exploring. After our hike, we wandered down to the end of the Island and stumbled upon the cutest lunch spot on the water – Jambe de Bois. I had (2) of the best frozen margaritas I think I’ve ever had! If you find yourself in St. Lucia I definitely recommend checking out this little gem  for a leisurely lunch.

{ Antigua + Half Moon Bay }

We took about a 45 minutes taxi ride to Half Moon Bay and spent the day with my sister & bro (in-law). The beach was just what we wanted – not touristy & uncrowded. We did some snorkeling, snapped some photos and I had a siesta in the sand. Click the link above to see my full post on Half Moon Bay 😉

{ Tortola : Josiah’s Bay Beach }

Ahhh, Tortola! Adam & I loved this place! We left saying we would totally fly here and spend a week on the Island. We spent the day at Josiah’s Bay Beach – this place was so chill. We hung out at the beach bar, swam in the surf and watched the surfers catch the some waves.

We took advantage of this beautiful place, snapping some photos in this Lilly Pulitzer Beach Cover Up that I got for our trip!

The rest of the best from our days at sea…
Sea days were my favorite! No need to rush off the ship in the morning, just me & my favorite people cruising in the middle ocean. I absolutely LOVE cruising. I guess I get it from my momma! {LOL} If you’ve never been on a cruise I highly recommend taking one! Its such a fun way to travel. My first cruise was at 14 years old and it was our family vacation for the longest time! I think we went on 2 cruises a year a few times!

Can we talk about these sunsets!? We had some of the most stunning sunsets out on the water. One night Adam & I ran up to the deck from the balcony in our room to get a better view. I was in my robe & didn’t care one bit!
the next five photos are all of the same sunset. The sky turned every color – so wondrous & magical.

Wow!! I’m pretty sure this is my longest/biggest Photo Diary – ever. I cannot believe it’s April and two whole months have passed since this incredible trip! I had so many photos to sort thru & edit, and it took me forever to put this post together while working on other things.
Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do sharing!! xx

Much Love,
