Today we made and designed our own yummy pizzas. Mine had olive oil, olives and lots of cheese.
Arrrr! The Pirates League! I got to dress up as Jack Sparrow on the cruise.
I loved picking out my face design.
I make one scurvy pirate!
I took a pirate oath. I promised to never trust anyone!
We attacked the ship.
We went to a pirate dinner. Everyone got into the spirit.
Daddy got hit with the goofies. DUH!
Like father like son! DUH!
Three Jack Sparrows!
The next day we got to see Mickey Mouse in the concierge lounge. I loved the lounge. By the end of the cruise I knew all the staff and all the times that they brought out new yummy treats.
Oh I am living the life. Taking a nap on the bow of the ship!
It was actually a little chilly in Cozumel.
Today we got up and went ashore to take a submarine ride. We took a tender boat out to the open waters and suddenly a submarine appeared! How awesome to watch it pop up out of the water. We toed up next to it and then climbed on top and down a steep stairwell down to the benches to sit on.
We all survived the transfer and made it safely to our portholes.
I loved watching the depth indicator.
This guy, sergeant fish, hung out on the window the entire trip!
We went really deep and saw lots of coral reefs, fish and corals.
I started to have a minor panic attack right around 100 feet down. I was told the sub went down to 100 feet. We passed 100 and I thought the sub was going to implode! Mommy calmed me down and we were fine then.
we got to 111 feet and then came to an ocean ledge end and a 1000+ foot drop off. I was happy to end the voyage, turn around and head back above.
We wandered the shops and markets. We got some bracelets made with our names on them. I watched in amazement how quickly the lady could make the letters out of simple strings.
Emmerson got a little bored after his was finished and Daddy’s shoe made a nice bench.
We came back to the ship and cleaned up. Emmerson took a nap and I enjoyed some book time on my iPad out on the deck in the shade. It started raining a little later so we all had to go into the room.
Our cruise ship stopped in Grand Cayman, after a medical emergency and a ship rerouting.
We took a tour of the saltwater forests.
I loved the mangroves.
We went on an eco boat tour.
I kept taking pictures of everyone and everything.
I love having my own camera!
There were giant iguanas all over the place. I was in HEAVEN!
We learned a lot on the ride.
It was so beautiful.
The guide was amazing and helped me learn about a lot of sea life. He really was hands on and a great listener as well.
We saw sea squirts.
and more iguanas!
We even saw a live stingray.
We tasted the salt on the mangroves leaves.
We visited a place called “Hell”. It was an old coral bed that is now above land.
We stopped at a little beach to play for a few minutes.
Here is another show of the stingray. Right after I took this picture I got splashed with a wave and that was the end of my camera! UGH!
