Top 10 things to experience on a Caribbean Cruise
Vacationing on a Caribbean Cruise has been one of the best experiences of my life. I experienced some of the best times, in the best places, with some of the best people. Here is a list I believe to be experiences you can't miss. This list includes some of the world most beautiful locations and marine life. I concurred fears and tried new things which, was an achievement I will never forget.
Parque Forestal La Marquesa- Canopy Ziplining
Zip lining over the canopy tops through the forests of Puerto Rico was more than a breathe taking experience. This experience deserves the number one spot due to the rush from jumping off high platforms and swinging from canopy to canopy. The initial jumpy is the hardest, but ones you've master that it's smooth sailing from there on. This activity is meant for really anybody, ranging from various ages.

Castillo San Cristobal, San Juan Puerto Rico
Castillo San Cristobal is one of the largest fortresses every built dating way back to the 17 hundreds which structure still stands today. This historical monument is located in San Juan Puerto Rico. While exploring San Juan's historical Fort, you will see original historical weapons and be able to explore and access the old observation decks on sight. It was very surreal to be able see the area that solders from decades ago accompanied. The breath taking view of the ocean from up top on the fort was an extraordinary sight to see.
Deck Top Parties
In between islands adventures, the excitement never stops. Nightly parties are held on the deck creating a fun filled event for everyone to be a part of. These parties are hosted with DJ's every night, Dance offs, and the irresistible bubble hot tubs to relax in. This is the times where everyone can let loose and party with people from all over the world and many different ages. This is where I met people from across the US where I got to learn about different backgrounds and cultures. This entertainment creates room for smooth sailing.
Megan's Bay is home to one of the world most beautiful beaches in the world!! The scenery capturing the white sandy beach says it all. Not only is the view breathe taking, but coming across some of the most amazing sea creatures are spotted here such as; tropical fish, turtles, conch and tarpon. Explore the island in various ways by snorkeling in the ocean and paddle boarding across the bay. If you want to have a relaxing day, the beach provides cozy lounging areas for guest to lay and enjoy the view. Makin the best of both worlds!
Senor Frog's, St. Thomas
If you have the urge to party while waiting for the ship to take depart, you've come to the right place! Senor Frogs is located directly off the ship and onto the port, creating a fun party atmosphere. This is a place where you can let loose, take jello shots, drink out of tall fun drinks with the slogan "Drinks come in, Fun goes out!" Be a part of the Senor Frog's dance crew party as they let loose on the table tops creating a carefree atmosphere. This is also a great place to go if you like to take pictures because of all the random signs around the bar.
4 Course Meals
Be prepared to eat..... A lot!! Each night 4 course meals are served to all guests on board. Ranging from amazing seafood to 5 star stakes. The meals are so good you won't be able to stop eating. (Be prepared to gain 10 pounds. It's all worth it!) Each plate ordered has its own little unique design to it, created with an elegant presentation. Each night the presentations are never the same, keeping things exciting for the guests.
Grand Turk Island, Turks & Caicos
By far the best island we stopped at. Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos may be small but is filled with some of the best water activities. You have the option of hanging out with wildlife sting rays, various types of snorkeling through coral reef, barracuda sightings and of course island drinking at the local hot spots. I experienced some of the kindest hearted people during my time on the island. Traveling to Grand Turk will not disappoint.
Snuba Diving Grand Turk Adventure
Snuba Diving in Grand Turk will not disappoint. The Turks and Caicos Islands are known for some of the best diving in the world. A breathing tank sits above the water providing the ability to explore 20-feet down into the ocean freely. Which allows room to explore through the coral reef during which you will spot different marine life including, sting rays, sea turtles and conch shells.

Animal Towel Decorations
Be amused with the fun surprises you'll find during your stay. Don't be surprised if you come back to your room to find an elephant created out of a towel ready to greet you, along with other animal creations such as a frog, a rabbit, a seal. You name it; they know how to make it! This really made coming back from a long on the islands worthwhile to come home too.
Formal Dress Nights
Last but not least, Formal nights are a night you wont forget. Being able to dress in extravagent attire in one of the most elligant settings is a night you won't forget. Take pictures with many different backdrop schenes to capture the night. You can't help but feel like a princess in a setting like this.
If I were able to go on a second trip anywhere in the world I would go back to these places. They are great experiences and are ones in a lifetime thing. If you're into water activities this is the place to go. And if you're into experiencing a thrill, zip lining over the canopy tops in Puerto Rico is an experience you will never forget.
