As much as we loved the other ports, Jamaica was by far our favorite. We had the most relaxing and fun day we’d had our entire cruise. We had done and seen so much at the other ports that it was incredible to just lay on the beach, snorkel, sail, and have our Pina Coladas brought to us whenever we wanted a refill!

This is going to be a picture intensive post. We took well over 200 pictures in the beautiful Grand Cayman and I’ve narrowed them down to about 60 for this post. I’ve broken most of them up in to two photo galleries so they’re a little easier to view.

Arriving in Miami
We flew into Miami the day before we were to set sail and stayed at the Holiday Inn, Port of Miami-Downtown. The hotel didn’t [...]
