St. Thomas… and it was a dream!!!
It’s true. If you’re thinking about a cruise or trip that includes St. Thomas along the way… you’re definitely planning the right getaway 🙂
We’re not huge into group excursions… but we decided for the fun of it, we would try one, and I have to say that we had way more fun than I thought we would. ha!
Yes, this is an Ice Bar. LOL.
If you’ve never been to one, it’s pretty simple. EVERYTHING is made out of ice, and all of your drinks are frosty cold 😉
We don’t drink alcohol, but our diet coke and water sure were SUPER chilly! haha!
Oh, and if you think you see stairs that lead to a small ice slide in the picture below… you would be correct.
You would ALSO be correct if you assumed that Cason and I were the ONLY adults who actually slid down that slide, laughing hysterically the whole time, because we knew how immature we looked to everyone else. #wheninrome
One thing that’s a bit difficult with port stops when on a cruise, are the massive amounts of people… especially when there are 4, 5 or 6 different ships all docking at once.
To be honest, our tactic was to jump on any bus, or catch a ride from a local taxi, and get as far away from the ports as possible.
So what?… we don’t like lots of people… ha! It’s just not my “thing” to feel like I’m being herded in a group from one place to another. So to avoid that, we tried to hit spots that had less tourists.
Megan’s beach was amazing for this.
Yes, it still had lots of people swimming and playing, but there were huge portions of the large beach where it felt like we were the only ones around. I loved it.
Right before heading back to the boat we also visited a little butterfly garden, which was really quiet and nice.
