What a perfect time to continue.....look what showed up today!  New swag to add to our suitcase.  Side note--I have not even started packing yet which is extremely odd for me!

Now that I have lured you all in, its THAT time...

Oh YES, yes it is!!!  We need your help (please). We have decided not to do any formal excursions on this cruise but rather, fly by the seat of our pants and explore on our own.  We plan on staying on the ship in Nassau but where would you go or what would you do in....

St. Kitts/Nevis--7:00 to 4:00

We don't want to lounge on a beach all day (see profile pic-ha ha) but would rather explore unique or scenic areas and eat local food at a place with an amazing view with a few cocktails!  

Cant wait to see what you come up with!

We just came home from this itinerary and we did Megen’s Bay in St Thomas and a tour to another beach in St Kitts. 

Check to see how many ships are in port for St Thomas to gauge how busy Megens Bay might be if that is what you are thinking. We found it quite crowded. 

St Kitts beach was called Cockleshell Beach. Private with a nice restaurant and bar. 

Both were booked through RCL excursions.

To this day, this was one of our favorite side trips.  We aren't huge into snorkeling (will do it, but not normally a priority), but the views, the stocked Yeti, the food, and mainly Captain Mike and his wife (from Ohio) are the best.  https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g7208537-d1395510-Reviews-Morningstar_Sailing_and_Power_Charters-Red_Hook_East_End_St_Thomas_U_S_Virgin_Is.html

Full disclosure....

As some of you are aware, I started this live blog knowing I might have to cancel at the very last minute...  Our five year old daughter broke her tibea a week ago Monday and we had the appt. with the surgeon yesterday.  AKA D day!

She had been in a full leg cast the last 10 days and we had to carry her everywhere.  (She didn’t like that so much!)  We are so relieved that the surgeon stated she does not need surgery and she is so relieved she came home in a full leg walking cast!

Here is your PSA for the day—-get travel insurance, especially if you have kids 😊

So the rush is on to pack and I’m up for the challenge! Can you wear shorts at Izumi Hibachi?  My husband really wants to wear shorts there hahahaha!

We have fresh falling snow this morning here in NH...

And I’m outta here at 6:00 tomorrow night!!

Great news about your daughter, @Karahvacatimes! Kind of a bummer that she'll be spending the whole trip in a cast, but that's still better than having to cancel last-minute.

Maybe she can get some officer and/or crew signatures on her cast as a kind of memento of the trip?

@JLMoran Thank you!  She is not going on this cruise though.  Just her dad and I for this one 😊
