To celebrate the sale of Graham's business,* we took a cruise over Spring Break to the Eastern Caribbean. The kids were beyond excited and had a great time. The full photo album is available here if you want to see.
We took the Carnival Freedom, and actually had the same cruise director that we had on the Legend in 2010 - what are the odds?
Our first port was in Key West, Florida, and we walked across the island down to the Southernmost Beach to play in the sand
We only had one date night (Sean didn't want to go back to the kids' club after the first time, although he said he had fun), which was as we left Freeport. We had a cocktail, dinner, and then watched a movie by the pool. We had some fun evenings with the kids, too, and went to two concerts and three movies with them.
The second port was Freeport, the Bahamas, and we spent the day at the Junkanoo Beach Club at Taino Beach
Our last port was Nassau, the Bahamas, and we took a ferry to Paradise Island and spent the day at Cabbage Beach near the Atlantis Resort (home to the world's most expensive hotel suite at $25,000/night) - our favorite activity was sitting and letting the waves come up and get us
As a side note, I'm making a wall grouping of the above pictures. The first two were coincidental (Barcelona, Spain in 2013 and Grand Teton National Park in 2014), but this time I took the picture on purpose to match... It's fun to see how much the kids have grown!
Sean's favorite on-board activity was taking the glass elevator - he pushed the button to call the elevator, then Claire would push the button to choose the floor
There was a Dr. Seuss theme throughout the kids' events, and our last day at sea we got to have a Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with the Cat in the Hat and friends
Our little things had a fun time and were sad to leave the ship - they're already asking when we can go on another cruise...
*So now Graham is no longer working with Netchemia and is focusing exclusively on his own company, Edovate Capital, which we're both really excited about. Congratulations to Graham and the Netchemia team!
El negocio de Graham estaba vendido recientemente,* entonces para celebrar, tomamos un crucero durante las vacaciones de primavera a la Caribe Este en el Carnival Freedom. Los chicos estaban emocionadísimos, y pasamos un tiempo maravilloso. Todas las fotos están aquí si quiere verlas.
Visitamos Key West en Florida, Freeport y Nassau en las Bahamas y tres playas allá. En la nave, disfrutamos mucha comida, películas, las jacuzzis, espectáculos, y el ascensor de vidrio. El tema para los niños estaba Dr. Seuss, y comimos con el gato en el Sombrero y sus amigos en nuestro último día en el mar.
Los chicos ya están preguntándonos cuando podemos tomar otro crucero… ¡Ja!
*Ahora Graham no trabaja con Netchemia y esta solamente trabajando en su propia compañía, Edovate Capital, que es emocionando para nosotros dos. ¡Felicidades a Graham y el equipo de Netchemia!
