It was an excellent tour- it was so much better than getting on some boat with 50 other people to snorkel somewhere- I would do it again in a heartbeat! Great value for the $$

That guava berry colada looks de-lish! I am a blended tropical drink girl too especially when on the beach. Heaven!

Bummer for the folks that didn't make it due to a little chop water. It's so blue and wonderful. The sand looks so fine and white.

Lunch looks great too. Bad to be reading right now as I am starving.

It's hard to believe that all this goodness is just one afternoon. Love that about the Disney cruise, it's like a bunch of little different vacations in one.

We had such a great day on our excursion. What a bumpy ride! Snorkeling was fun - though I didn't get to see the turtle up that close.

Lunch was our second favorite meal of the cruise (Remy was first ). I loved the Guavaberry Colada!

I would highly recommend the excursion!

What a beautiful day! I'm glad you braved the waves so you could get to these beautiful places.

Can you believe I missed out on the Guavaberry cocktail when I was there last summer!!?? Only one wait to remedy that - go back!

LOVE LOVE LOVE your turtle pictures. So pretty!

Great update! That boat trip looks like fun! What's a little wave action slowing anyone down when you've got a final destination of gorgeous beaches and islands?

Love the turtle pics! I took so many pics underwater on our cruise too. Love my waterproof camera!

MMMM Guavaberry coladas are delish SHHH i still have most of a bottle of guava berry rum left and hidden. Now I need to go buy some coconut milk and make one!

Guavaberry! I bought a bottle on our last cruise on your recommendation and it did not disappoint! Love the stuff.

What a wonderful excursion. And aren't Chris and Stew just great! They are some fun loving people. And so were the other boat of our group that went with you. And to think, we met them all through DVC and Cruising on the members cruises! Most all of them, plus more of our group, are cruising again this fall from San Juan but we had to cancel due to a family wedding.

I hope to be able to do an excursion like this on our next trip. It looks absolutely amazing. But, in the end I am glad we didn't book it as our friends who were supposed to be going with us weren't able to go due to him being in an accident, which he is still recovering from, and that our oldest daughter had such a terrible head cold that she wouldn't have enjoyed it at all. So to living it through you and your beautiful pictures is great!

Can't wait to see the next beach!

Great updates! Looks like you had a great time in St Marten! I remember your past TR talking about that Guavaberry rum and I made it a point to go to that little stand to get some but my DH talked me out of buying it (we are not real big drinkers at home), But I did get one of the drinks at the little bar there! YUM! I won't be talked out of it next time... LOL

I had told you about my BIL not long ago, I thought I would let you know that he did pass away 5/28. Not exactly unexpected but sudden at the same time, it was a really rapid decline. The kids are handling it pretty well, they are still pretty young ( 5 1/2 and 7) and he has been sick in some way or another most of their lives. So it's sad but still a small sense of relief that he isn't suffering anymore, it was just awful to watch.

Well, to bring the mood back up a little I LOVE those pics of that turtle while you were snorkeling! So Cool!

Lucky you. Have fun! We sometimes have appetizers and wine while watching the ships sail away; we call it the "poor man's cruise." I'll try to watch on Thursday. Maybe I'll spot you waving. If not, it will be a good excuse for wine and food - ha!

We are in one of the 5e's on the aft deck 9. We plan on waving from our balcony so look for us.

I'm so excited. We are loving the DVC HHI resort.

We stayed there twice when the kids were younger and loved it as well. I loved running/walking through Palmetto Dunes - especially in the spring when all the azaleas are in bloom . . . aahhhh.

I will definitely look for you! We have a 5E booked on deck 7 next April - can't wait to use that enormous balcony.
