2017 Travel Diaries: Western Caribbean Cruise {Part 1}

Phew finally I'm back posting (hopefully somewhat regularly) and I'm started it off with my cruise recap! I can't believe it was already a week since we've been back. 

The cruise started out leaving from Galveston on Saturday. It was kind of a doozy of a day since it was mostly checking in and getting acclimated with the ship.

Of course I had to document our delicious dessert from dinner that night.

On Sunday (sea day) was my momma's 60th birthday and the main reason for the big cruise! We started out with some coffee on our balcony, it felt amazing to just look out and see nothing but blue water.

Our stewardess was so great and decorated a little for my mom's birthday, the whole week they were so sweet giving her little gifts throughout! 

We decided to head up to the lido deck for some lunch, yummy tacos which I'm so craving again! 

Afterwards we hung by the pool and took advantage of a quieter pool area.

Afterwards we decided to get ready for our first formal night. Luckily for us it was dress up night and mom's birthday which was just extra special.

After another delicious dinner, the wait staff came out with a yummy cake for my mom.

The third day (2nd sea day) we woke up early and headed up for some yummy breakfast. 

After doing some walking around and grabbing a few of the activities, we decided to hang poolside again, this time with some yummy frozen drinks. 


I think that's a good stopping point until next time where I'll go into more of the ports we stopped in during our cruise!


  1. I can't think of a better way to celebrate your mom's birthday than a cruise, especially since the staff was so awesome and doing little things for her throughout the entire cruise! I can't wait to hear more about your trip, and I love the one piece that you have! So cute!

  2. Oh how I love cruising, and now I'm in total planning mode for the next one! How beautiful are you ladies all dressed up and celebrating your amazing momma. Gimme all the amazing food and drinks! Can't wait to hear about the ports of call <3
