Cruising the Southern Caribbean

On a recent vacation, Linda and I were on cruise to the Southern Caribbean.  Our goal was to simply relax.  Here are a selection of shots.  I hope you enjoy them.

DOL-A-2544
Port of Departure (Miami)
There were several ships in the Port of Miami.


DOL-A-2633
Outdoor Pool
An indoor pool is also available.  There are a few levels to sun/shade one's self.  Outdoor bars, food, pool butlers, servers... falalalala lala  la la.


DOL-A-2811
Our ship docked in port

DOL-BB-2
One of the many levels to sun/shade etc.

There's a plethora of dining options to consider.  I didn't bother including images of the buffet, however, the food is just as good as any of the other dining options available... in my opinion.

DOL-A-2694  DOL-A-2716


DOL-A-2721   DOL-A-2723


DOL-A-2733


There are several lounges throughout the ship where you can escape and not feel the least bit cramped. Trust me, I'm not fond of crowds and I was always able to find space.  If you wanted to be kept busy, there is a daily schedule of things to do on the ship.

DOL-A-2641


The Café al Bacio was one place we frequented regularly.  It was right up our alley... relaxed and quiet.  I enjoyed double-espressos and a selection of delicious and waist expanding pastries.

Top side, Celebrity has a real lawn to enjoy.  There are lawn games, wine tasting, and glass blowing shows... and it's a cool place to just hang out.

DOL-A-3943



Linda and I chose to do our own sightseeing.  

DOL-A-2991
Least Sandpiper and a curious crab
DOL-A-3030
Magnificent Frigatebird (female)


DOL-A-2872  DOL-A-2884

Street art found in WillemstadCuracao and a view of their iconic pastel coloured buildings.




DOL-A-3231

Onboard the ship we enjoyed a tour of the bridge.  What was of particular interest is how the bridge extends beyond the ships width.  These extensions provide a birds eye view when docking and naturally a series of controls to maneuver the ship.


DOL-A-3235
Gauges mounted on the ceiling


DOL-A-3234


Each day was as busy as you wanted it to be.  The best part of cruising is choice.  You unpack once and the rest of the time is yours to do as you please.


DOL-A-3740


Hope you enjoyed the cruise.

It looks like a wonderful ship, although I wouldn't want to be responsible for navigating it. Your pictures make me itchy to take another cruise.
