We arrived to Miami late Friday night and had no problem throwing down some pizza our friend Rachel had ordered for us. Rachel is simply the best as she opened her home to us for the night and drove us to our cruise destination the next day. We boarded the ship with ease on Saturday afternoon as we sipped on some cocktails and enjoyed the view of the Miami skyline. Before we knew it, the ship blew it's giant air horns and we were off, admiring the view on the way out. We stuffed our faces full that night (and for the rest of the entire trip) as we feasted on our 3 course meal that we had been dreaming about for the past month or so. Afterwards, we headed to our favorite, cheesy Vegas-style stage show where we met our spunky and entertaining cruise ship director who would lead us to all things fun the next 5 days.
Sunday was a Fun Day at Sea where we were lucky to grab a cabana for the morning that was made for napping, reading and relaxing like no other. We had a great view of the ocean as we sailed along to our first destination, Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Sleep, eat and drink. That's pretty much all we did that day. AND IT WAS GLORIOUS. We enjoyed being serenaded at dinner that night as all of the hosts gathered and sang "Happy Anniversary to You" having other guests pipe in. Another show was calling our name as we headed to the stage for "Living in America" featuring the Victory Dancers, live band and two vocal singers.
We came back to the room and were greeted by our evening towel animal, anticipating the upcoming Jamaican adventure. Yeah, mon! We couldn't wait!
