Last month I went on a cruise with my roommates Dan and Logan. And it was awesome. I've now been on 2 cruises in my life and I still don't understand why I haven't been on more. I love them so much that I want to go on one at least once every single year.

Also, we had a veranda room this time, meaning that we had a little balcony. When I stayed in an inside stateroom I didn't even care about having an ocean view or seeing the sun come up or set or at all from my room. But I'm pretty sure I'm now officially spoiled. There are probably few greater things in this world than pulling up next to an island and waking up to steel drums coming from it to welcome you. That probably doesn't happen on most islands though. But it does on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. I wish I could live on that island. Not forever, but for like a month. Maybe more like a week. Ok, more than 8 hours, which is all I got.

I'll leave you with some photo highlights:

a drink from the bar by the pool. mmmm

the nassau port as seen from our balcony.
