only 2 more wake-ups this week and then VACATION

Can you tell I'm excited?? This Saturday (on 9/11 eeek) I will be flying to Ft.Lauderdale Florida to gear up for my first cruise. I am going on the Celebrity Solstice from 9/12-9/19 with 16 of Rick's family members! Can you believe it?!? There will be 17 of us together on 1 ship...CRAZINESS! I am beyond excited/nervous not only because this is my first cruise, but also because of my band. I am hoping to dear god it behaves! Everyone in his family knows about it so that won't be a big deal, I just don't want to look bulimic! Here is a list of the places we are going:

Day 1 Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Day 2 At Sea
Day 3 George Town, Grand Cayman
Day 4 Cozumel, Mexico
Day 5 Puerto Costa Maya, Mexico
Day 6 Roatan, Honduras
Day 7 At Sea
Day 8 Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Have any of you been to any of these places and have any must do's/ do-nots while there? I know that while we are in Honduras we have a planned excursion to go zip-lining- I am beyond excited for this! It will be the first time I am under the weight limit to do it, and can't wait!!!

I look forward to hearing any suggestions you all have whether it be for cruising in general or fun things to do while at these places.


  1. You absolutely must swim with the sting rays in Grand Cayman. The experience of a lifetime! They almost act like cats in the water. It is surreal.

    Cozumel is good for shopping; you can also take the ferry to Playa del Carmen to see some Mayan Ruins if you have time while in port. Snorkeling at the state park there is also cool (I forget the name).

    Whatever you do, you will have a blast! Cruises are the best! And think of how fun it'll be because you are so skinny now!

  2. Hey Kristen - I haven't been any of these places, but check out my cruising suggestions that I posted earlier this spring... here is the link:

    Have a great time! You're going to love it!

  3. Have a wonderful time! That sounds AMAZING!

  4. I second Amy's suggestion for Grand Cayman - I did that on my cruise and although I was scared, it was awesome!

  5. So jealous! Maybe the next BOOBS outing should be on a cruise!!!!

  6. I'm so excited for you!!! Let's get together when you get home?? I wanna hear all about it!! Oh and I gave you can award, you can view it on my page

  7. Have a great trip sounds like a blast.

  8. I'm right near Ft. Lauderdale! If by any chance you might like to meet up on your return day (that's Saturday the 18th right?) for coffee or dinner or something, email me at bandlady (at) stealyourface (dot) com. I get out of school at 3:30 - don't know how that would work with your schedule.
