Faithful followers will remember our short weekend honeymoon directly following our wedding in July. We went up to Park City and stayed in the condo of one of our friend's (a wedding present to us) for a few nights and it was quite lovely and relaxing.
Soooo we decided to do something different. We still wanted to do Christmas, and we still wanted to to tropical. We knew that you could get pretty good deals on cruises so we started looking in to that. I wanted a looooong vacation, so we started by looking in to 14-day cruises to the Caribbean and the Bahamas. But as we thought about it we realized that neither of us had ever been on a cruise and we didn't want to be stuck on a boat for two weeks with who knows how much vegan food and possibly not even having fun.
So we started looking at 7-dayers and found a PERFECT 7-day cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines sailing from New York City, down to Florida, and then to the Bahamas before returning to New York. It leaves a bit earlier in December, so I am taking an additional week off before my holiday break. What was so awesome about this cruise is that we decided while we were in New York we might as well spend a few days there. Neither Ben or I have ever been, so we extended our trip and will spend a few days in New York City over Christmas right after our cruise. It's so awesome! Ben and I call it three vacations in one--New York City, Florida, and the Bahamas.
What is really, really exciting about it is all the amazing excursions we are going to do during the cruise and the fun things we have planned to do in New York.
