Jayla and Saremy's Vacation 2010 - Caribbean Cruise

Hi friends!  Are you ready for an exciting post that will make you want to go someplace tropical, kick your shoes off and lay in the sand?  Alright then!  Here we go...Smile
As you fine readers know, we hang out with our friends Jake and Kayla (lovingly referred to as "Jayla") a lot.  We usually have dinner with them a few times a month, we have video game and movie nights, and we go on vacation with them.  If you refer back to our prior vacation posts, you'll see that we have plans to go on an annual vacation with them.  Last year (that sounds so long again, but really it was in December, and I'm just now catching up on blogging about it), we decided to go on a cruise through the Western Carribean!  So, without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, I present you with: Jayla and Saremy's Vacation 2010!
We departed for our cruise, aboard the Celebrity Eclipse, out of the port of Miami on December 11th and set sail for 7 glorious days of vacation.  Our ports of call were: Grand Cayman Islands, Cozumel, Mexico, Costa Maya, Mexico and Roatan, Honduras; along with 2 full days at sea.  At each port, we did excursions such as: going to Hell and the turtle farm in Grand Cayman, doing zip lines in Cozumel, power snorkeling in Costa Maya, and visiting the preservation park in Honduras.  Plus, while aboard our ship we ate delicious food, took in nightly shows, ate delicious food, laid out by the pool, ate delicious food, shopped, ate delicious food, gambled in the casino, ate delicious food, dressed up for 2 formal nights, and did I mention, we ate A LOT of delicious food?? :)  For those of you who have never cruised before...eating is a big part of the activity on board, and the food is amazing and always available.  It's somewhat ridiculous, actually. 
Yep, that’s our ship.

We had an awesome time on this cruise and there have already been talks of cruising the Eastern Caribbean in the future.  Jake and Kayla, thanks for another great vacation!  We had a blast!

Looks like you had a fantastic time! We took a cruise about 10 years ago, I think it's time to go again.
