Derwin and I sat sail on the Carnival Valor last Sunday to be a part of the wedding of Jeff and Michelle Imobersteg. We were very excited to both be there for them on this special day and take our first cruise. Here are some highlights from our week.
Sunday: We flew into Miami and boarded the boat. We did not have that much time to view leaving Miami as we had a Happy Hour to attend with our Wedding group and dinner to follow. Here is a peak at the ship leaving Miami.
Monday: Today is Wedding Day. So most of my pics will be of the wedding couple but I have a few to share of Key West, Florida. We sailed into port and docked by 8am.
After getting ready for the wedding we headed out to see a few views on Duval St. and meet the trolley that would take us to Smathers Beach for the wedding.
Above is a picture of the boys hanging out at Hogsbreath Saloon before meeting the trolley. Then off to beach where rain did fall but not the spirits of the Bride and Groom.
There are so many more pics so check them out on Facebook. After hitting Duval St. again we headed back to the boat for a reception and dinner! We all went down early after a long exciting day! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Imobersteg.
Tuesday: We were a sea all day heading towards Grand Cayman. It was a rainy dreary day but we still enjoyed each other and some good laughs together.
Wednesday: GRAND CAYMAN!!! This is where the picture at the top was taken look how beautiful the water is. Derwin and I really wanted to snorkel here so we heading off down the road and found a great spot and actually swan with a shark! Wish I had an underwater camera. It was weird for sure. The water is so clear we could see like 80 feet deep. It was 2 hours of wonderful!
Thursday: We docked in Montiego Bay, Jamaica although we were not near Montiego Bay (walking distance anyway). The scenery was awesome. After a brief shopping adventure we just enjoyed a lazy empty day on the ship taking in the beautiful surroundings. Here are the pics.
Friday: At sea day again with lots of sun but a nice breeze all day. It was nice to have a down day to prepare to leave the ship the next morning. Here are some final shots of fun on the boat.
