We flew into Tampa where we stayed with my brother and his family for a couple days and then headed off on the cruise. We were lucky that we were able to combine two great things (seeing family+cruise) in one trip since tampa is a cruise port city.
We visited Belize, Cozumel Mexico, Roatan Honduras and Grand Cayman. I'll do separate posts of those later.

|Our ship (sorry for the foggy edges, the camera was in an aquapac)|
|The first thing we did when we got on the ship was play chess. A little strange, but that is what James wanted to do. Pretty cool chess set, you have to admit.|
|If you've ever been on a cruise, you know that they center around eating (and drinking and gambling--but we didn't do these things for obvious reasons). The serving staff a funny singing and dancing skit for us each night while we ate dinner.|
|We spent a lot of time reading and relaxing on the cruise ship.|
|It rained on and off for the last few days of our cruise. At least we got a pretty rainbow out of it.|
