Dream Vacation

Friday, May 11, 2018

Why is it that the weekend never seems like its long enough? I spend all week looking forward to Friday and within the blink of an eye, I'm back at Monday and dragging my butt back to work. I'm so ready for a vacation! Anybody else feel this way?

From my Hawaii vacation, Sept 2017

Texan and I love the beach and consider sandy toes and salty hair the best vacation ever. To us, it just isn't summer without visiting the beach at least once. We've gone to OBX, Myrtle Beach, and Panama City Beach. Last year I even went to Hawaii with my family. (High five for two beach vacations in one year!)

This year we are looking to up our vacation game by going on a cruise. Texan has gone on a few cruises with his family when he was younger and I have never gone. I am through the roof excited about the opportunity to go on my first floating vacation!

While I'm thinking you can't go wrong when planning a cruise, I have been having some trouble trying to figure out where we want to go. We have narrowed it down to a Carnival Caribbean trip leaving from Florida but that's where our certainty stops. You can go on short cruises to just 1 or 2 islands or longer cruises that go to 4 or 5 islands. Plus all islands look so beautiful it's hard to choose which ones would be nice to go to.   

I'm a scientist so research is my game. However have you ever tried to research a Caribbean island? They all look wonderful, relaxing and too many adventures to fit into just a few hours. Basically the islands are just perfect! How in the world am I supposed to narrow down my list of which islands to visit?

Of course we are limited by which islands the cruise ships visit, but that is still a lot. I've tried to narrow down a list of my favorites but then again they all seem so perfect... Bolded islands are on my dream list.

Amber Cove
Costa Maya
Grand Cayman
Grand Turks
Half Moon Cay
Mahogany Bay
Ocho Rios
Princess Cays
St. Kitts
St. Lucia
St. Maarten
St. Thomas

Have you been on a cruise? Where did you travel? If you have been to the Caribbean, what was your favorite island? Any islands you would recommend?
