Day 9: St. Croix

Our last day on the cruise ship was once again cloudy :( as we docked in St. Croix. Despite the clouds we packed our beach bag and headed ashore to hit the beaches. It was so humid I was pretty uncomfortable, but we had pre-purchased transfers from the pier to our choice of beaches along the coast line of St. Croix.
Once on the beach we got hooked up with the BEST beach chairs ever. They had pillows, foot rests, and reclined but weren't low to the sand. To keep the passing rain showers off of us we also rented an umbrella. We went for a swim in the ocean which was quite rough and had a strong under tow due to Tropical Storm Erica which had passed over the island the day before. Despite the weather, the water was still warm and nice! After my swim I laid back in the beach chair to enjoy the crystal blue water and our last day in the Caribbean. Within seconds I was asleep and stayed knocked out for a good two hours! Ahhh, the joys of being pregnant in the first trimester. There is nothing better than a nap on the beach. :)

On the last night of the trip we snapped a shot of our assistan table waiter and head waitress who were fabulous. A.R. and I were both a little disappointed with the overall food offered in the main dining hall compared to the quality we've both experienced on past cruises with Royal Caribbean, but the staff was still wonderful.
