Like promised, I'm back with more pics and info from our cruise. I love flipping through all the photos as I journal them. It was seriously so dreamy and now I'm glad I got a bit carried away in the photo department ;)
So Princess Cays was our first stop. It's the Princesses private island that has snorkeling, canoeing, swimming, etc.
It's 100% meant for relaxing and hanging out with whoever you're cruising with on your trip. They serve a delicious lunch, fresh cut fruit from the island all day, and have tons of places to relax and park your things so you can play on the beach. They even have adorable bungalows you can rent.
I'm not a huge fan of slimy little sea creatures tickling my feet and potentially swimming up my bathing suite (GAH! yes, that's what I feel like is going to happen when I snorkel. lol), so I explored the island, snapped photos and soaked up the crazy-awesome 80 degree weather, while Cason did his own adventuring. It was the perfect way to start a relaxing vacay.
The little air conditioned bungalows are seriously so cute and convenient. I think they were about $200, but they were totally worth it, especially if you want to share it with a few people and split the cost so you can have a little home-base to come back to that's nice and cool.
If you don't want to pay the price, then there are a TON of comfy, free beach chairs with plenty of shade around the island too.
Life had gotten so crazy for us with jobs, kids and moving, that reconnecting with each other for the both of us, was way past due.
I know that not everyone needs to basically desert themselves on an island with no internet to force themselves to relax... but let's get real... I DID.
It sounds horrible, but it's crazy how much talking and laughing you miss out on with the people you love, when you're constantly on your phones, or "plugged in".
CAN you get internet service while on this cruise. Yes. But it's pricey and definitely not lighting fast. I used it mostly to FaceTime the kids, upload pics to our Instagram, and then would jump off and actually enjoy the millions of other things to do.
Till next time!
I'm pulling together a post about the actual Regal Princess ship, because a lot of you have asked about prices, activities and more.
Plus, I haven't event touched on the food. Oh THE FOOD! yuuuum!
