Our boat. The one next to it is also a Royal Caribbean ship, but it's alot bigger!!!This was taken from a restaurant overlooking one of the pools.
The island of Coasta Maya
Sophie and her snails that I mentioned in my earlier blog.
Coasta Maya

We saw this sign in the bathroom...I thought it was funny, so I took a picture.

So I promised Miss Poppins that I'd blog more about my trip, so here it is. The second port we went to was Costa Maya. It was pretty, but you could definetly tell that it was a tourist spot!! There were alot of stores and Kiosk's(sp?) in basically this big circle. There were pools right on the beach. We got a table pretty close to the pools. It was really nice. Me and Madison both got Mexican dresses while we were there. Her's was red and mine's green!!haha We wore them to dinner that night and everyone seemed to like them. While we were sitting at the table just hanging out, Sophie(1 of my "cousins" 4 the week) who's 6, found some snails and then named them and made up a whole story about them. There was a daddy snail and a momma snail. It was really cute!!!

Sorry I haven't updated yet...I just haven't seemed to have the time. The cruise was awesome!!! I loved it!!! The first few days we were at sea and that was nice. It was realtively warm and kinda wet, but still very relaxing. Grand Cayman was the first port we got off at. While we were there we went to one of the beaches, it was the furthest away from the town. There was a restaurant right by where we were swimming so when we weren't swimming we were sitting under the little awning of the restaurant. There was this little bird that came right up to us while we were sitting there and started chirping at us. The cab driver told us that we could walk back to town, it was only a 45 minute walk. We opted not to do that!!haha Our cab driver also told us that gas on the island is $6.50 a gallon. It kinda makes our gas price not seem so bad. On the island we saw a McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy's, and a Subway!! I thought that was kinda funny. We also went shopping. I got a pair of sunglasses that kinda look like the ones I had in Disney world.

This is the bird we saw at the restaurnt.
