Hey everyone! Hope all of you enjoyed spring break as much as I did. Our cruise director Richard Spacey wasn’t joking when he said adjusting to life off a cruise ship after being on there for a week would be hard. For spring break I had the privilege of taking a trip on the Oasis of the Seas, Royal Carribean’s newest ship and the largest cruise ship in the world currently. This ship can hold 5,400 guests and 600 hundred workers. I has 7 hot tubs, 4 pools, an ice rink, 2 rock walls, a 3 story dining room, a casino, aqua theater and it is also the 1st ship ever to have a carousel on it.
This all began as my grandmother’s quest to get all the immediate family to go on a vacation together. It was fun to have me, my cousins, uncle, aunt, grandma and my dad there. I don’t really get to see my dad since he lives in Florida, so spending time with him was a rare treat. Anyways we ended up going to 3 islands (St. Thomas, St. Maarten and the Bahamas. Out of the 3 St. Thomas was my favorite. It was fun learning about their laws and how the differentiate from our own since they are a U.S. territory. Not to mention the legal drinking age is 18 there so sipping banana daiquiris wasn’t bad either.
I would never go on cruise again, there are way to many crowds for my taste, but it was definitely a fun experience. Here is a video of our crusie director doing his version of the evolution of dance along with a few pictures from the trip.
