We decided to go on a cruise for our 25th Anniversary. Our travel agent, recommended an Eastern Caribbean cruise on Royal Caribbean Cruise lines. What a great recommendation it was. We left on Saturday April 29th 2006 on the Voyager of the Seas from Miami. Below is us getting on board.
Below is another view of getting on the ship, though I think this was reboarding in Nassau. When boarding in Miami they have two large gangways that are like airline jetways.
A couple more balcony pictures.
It was nice to see our room was decorated for our anniversary on our arrival
The only negative thing about our trip was we only had 4 hours in port at Nassau, and San Juan. We didn't have time for shopping in Nassau, or excursions in San Juan. I would have been happier to have a full day in the Bahamas and skipped San Juan.
On a cruise, you have to talk about dining and the food. Royal Caribbean is known for its great food. What some may not realize is that you can practically eat all day. I tried to limit myself to 5 meals a day. Yes, I gained 13 pounds on this trip. (I've lost 5 already). Below is our table where we dined each evening. There were 2 formal nights and the rest were casual. Its against my will to wear a tie on vacation, but I gave in since it was such a special event.
We dined with the same people each night. Below are Thomas, and Eva from Sweden, to their right was Janice and Lenny from Virginia, and then Gina and I.( Notice all the tan people?)
Thomas and Eva were some of the craziest, and fun party people around as evidenced by this photo. We closed the bars a couple of nights with them.
Speaking of eating, here is some of the healthier offerings.
And some not so healthy choices.
Ok,here are a few more from around the ship. The first is the upperdeck with sun areas and running track. (I didn't use the running track) Next is the main pool deck with 2 pools and 5 hottubs.
We spent most of our tub time in this one located in the "adults only" section.
