Going on a Cruise!

by Nikki on February 25, 2010

In exactly four months from today, Jake and I are sailing out of NYC towards the Caribbean. We’re going to San Juan, St. Thomas and Grand Turk. I cannot wait. I’ve never been on a cruise before, so I’ve already read every FAQ on Carnival’s web site and am making my usual nuerotic lists of things to know, what to pack, what to see. If any of my few readers have ever been to any of those places, I’d love advice, especially on how much spending money I’ll need. I’m busting my butt over the next few months trying to save up money so we don’t have to worry about little things like going broke over a soda.

Jake is already excited too. He’s convinced we’re going to dig for buried treasure and wants to see some pirates. Considering that the real deals are far less adorable than Johnny Depp, I’m hoping that is one wish he doesn’t have come true. I did give him permission to yell “land ho!” as often as he likes.

The only thing I’m nervous about is the whole motion sickness issue. I get very sick even on short car rides. I figure I’ll stock up on ginger pills and seabands, then cross my fingers and hope I don’t puke on my fellow shipmates.
