After spending our first few ports on really great and exciting excursions, my friends and I decided to take it easy during our last port – Turks & Caicos.

Despite promising ourselves a chill day, we did manage to do something crazy (aka my first speed boat ride).
After the Grand Turk (and a crazy pool party with a swim up bar) we did have one more day at sea – which I will now dedicate to some of my favorite parts of the cruise!
1. The food – When we weren’t eating at the buffet (and believe me, we ate at the buffet A LOT #24hourpizza), the ship had a great sit down restaurant, where we eventually made friends with the waiters and had our favorite table by the end of the trip.
From left to right: tofu steak, tuna tartar, fried chicken (I was craving it), and their delicious chocolate melt cake (which we had almost every dinner)
L to R: Stuffed oysters, huevos rancheros with a side of corned beef hash, frog legs, and a special order of adobo!
2. The towel animals – I’m a sucker for cute things, and these towel animals were no exception. We had a new animal in our room everyday and it was a nice surprise to see which animal would be next.
3. The view – despite hurricane season, the cruise had perfect weather. You could watch the lightning storms every night, but we’d always miss the rain and every afternoon was spent looking like this:
So that’s it! My first cruise under my belt and 4 new countries crossed off of the bucket list. So, I’m a fan! Thoughts on where the next cruise should be?
Stay tuned! I ate A LOT when I got back – and even had my first “yolo” last-minute vacation!
