Cruises are an extremely cheap way to get to see places you may not have been able to fly to separately. Your transportation, meals and lodging are all there for you. I'm not saying I wouldn't do it again, because I have been looking at Europe and the Greek Islands. Like I said, it is a pretty cheap way to see the world. So I thought I would share some of that pretty water with you.
Our last cruise was to the Southern Caribbean and our middle daughter was able yo meet us and share our cabin. Also, one of my best friend's daughters with her best friend had a cabin near us as well. I loved sharing the islands with my girls. The pictures are from that cruise, as well as others.
St. Thomas, my favorite Island since our first cruise, until we took the ferry over to St. John, where the cruise ships don't have a port.....It is serene and quiet. I fell in love with St. John. ( And it doesn't hurt that it's the island where Kenny Chesney has a home. Me and and my newly adopted son, Kenny. So we had to hit one of the bars we've read he frequented. I don't know if it's true, but we had fun, so he should too.)
The official cocktail of the British Virgin Islands and one of the most popular mixed drinks in the Caribbean, the painkiller drink recipe is traditionally made with Pusser's Rum.SERVES 1-2
2-4 oz. of Pusser's Rum
4 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. cream of coconut
1 oz. orange juice
Grated fresh nutmeg
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice add first four ingredients and stir. Pour into cocktail glasses and top with grated nutmeg.
This is luscious. I have found any Rum will do. It's a taste of the Islands. Join me on a little trip, if only in our minds.
