We were total slugs, enjoyed the heck out of doing nothing!

Rainbows, clouds, mountains. Rocky islands, not many sandy beaches.

Our favorite spot, front of the boat

Beautiful pix addy! Love all the critters and clouds are cool. That water is so pretty. Geez what did you do rent the boat all out for yourselves.........no other people around. I'd be sitting in those seats up front too and in that inviting jacuzzi tub! Do they let you go out on land.........I guess they did as you got pix of close ups of critters. Can you rent a car or take a tour and go into town and stuff?

lol we were bumms, we did walk through the towns, (maybe an hour) then back on the boat. We love it when all head to shore and leave the boat empty.

During the days at sea, we always get up early, go up and claim a hammock. We lived on them for the trip. The round chairs we love, but no shade. Usually they have coverings over them but at the front of the boat too much wind. I can't handle heat well enough to be out in the sun day long. The serenity area (adults only) is usually at the back of the boat, less wind. This is the first one we have been on with the adult area in the front. On the 13th and 12th deck.

We watch for cheap sailings, hurricane season it a good time to book! This was one trip where there were very few kids. Booking in the summer tons of kids.

Not real easy to see, but the front of the boat the highest deck is where we hung out. Our room was on the 10th deck, right below the adult area.

Can you rent a car or take a tour and go into town and stuff?

You can rent cars, bikes, scooters, they don't recommend it, for one driving on the other side of the road and tiny roads, lots of walking people and crazy drivers.
You can pay for cruise sponsored tours, they tend to be pricey, or just set up something with the people waiting for the boat to arrive. The main thing is be back on time or they leave you and you need to fly to catch up or fly home. We hear them paging for people at every port. They will wait a little, but not long.

We usually dive, but the diving at the US VI was rated pretty poorly. The other islands no diving offered. We bought three t shirts and one cane (for his dad), the shops near the port are not cheap even if they are put up in tents.

My honey spoils the heck out of me, he says his only job on earth is to keep me smiling! So we enjoy life to the max.

I love sunrise and sunsets, esp on the water. Here are some more, not the best, but still pretty I am always up to watch the sun come up. Love storms! (well as long as no one is getting hurt by them!)

We had a great time, don't even care if we get off the boat, enjoy the ride and the ocean view!
