For Christmas this year, my mother-in-law bought herself, us, Chris's brother and his girlfriend a seven day cruise on Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas. Best gift ever- we were so excited to pack up and head somewhere sunny to ring in the new year!
My mother-in-law's best friend, her daughter and daughter's husband also joined us for the vaca, and it couldn't have been more fun. It was so nice to get away, relax, get some sun, and explore new islands. The ship stopped in the Bahamas, St. Martin, and St. Thomas.
When we got to St. Thomas, we took a ferry ride to St. John for the day. The ride alone was gorgeous. The water was turquoise blue and the scenery was outstanding. Who wants to live in one of the houses on the hill pictured above? ME, ME! I mean..what a view.
St. Martin was equally as beautiful- we spent the day on Orient beach, and it didn't disappoint. We were there on New Year's Eve, and it was for sure the best New Year's Eve day I've ever had. A big thanks goes to my awesome mother-in-law for making this trip happen!
Have you ever been on a cruise? I love how easy and laid back they are- which makes them a great option for a big group taking a vaca. Looking at all the pictures makes me want to be back in the sun with a cocktail- especially since it's freezing here in Nashville. Thanks for reading!
