The hubby and I were hoping to visit Hawaii again, but after looking at how much airfare and cruising prices were during such a high peak time, we booked a trip to the Caribbean instead. I absolutely fell in love with every island and city we visited during our cruise. Yes...we chose to go on a cruise..again...and I swear I could become the spokesperson for Norwegian cruise lines because they do not disappoint! The hubby and I made sure we hit the gym daily so that we could indulge (and maybe participate in a wee bit of gluttony) all throughout the cruise. I couldn't get enough of the food. And the entertainment...all I can say is tremendous talent! Beautiful broadway productions, world-class ballroom dancers and the opportunity to learn how to ballroom dance with the performers from the shows!
The first stop we made was St. Maartens, Philipsburg. The first thing I noticed when pulling up to the port was the bright blue water. The beach was definitely the place to be. My hubby had a blast swimming laps while I had to sit under an umbrella and nurse the terrible sunburn I developed during our first two days at sea. Note to future self: just because it's cool and breezy, doesn't mean I'm impervious to the scorching rays of the sun.. 60 SPF for next time!
Packing for the trip, I knew I would be facing some very warm weather. I made sure to pack a few breezy dresses for various occasions. There is nothing I hate more than sticking to my clothes when I feel uncomfortably hot. I paired this stunning pleated white maxi dress with wedge sandals, a drawstring tote, beautiful accessories by 31 Bits and some classic Ray-ban aviators.
