So back during spring break, we went on a cruise.  It was all very last minute since we had just found out we were I was pregnant.  We had already decided we'd do something this summer without the kids since we haven't had alone time since Wyatt was born (not that we're complaining, we just figured it was time to do something for us).  We just moved it up a little to try to avoid the morning sickness period and largeness that comes with being pregnant.  So it took a few days to get all the childcare figured out (with my mom still in the throes of tax season, she was unable to take any time off so we had to enlist help from babysitters) and then we were set to go.  I had never been on a cruise before, Kev's been on several, so it was a brand new experience for me.  I was a little terrified at the thoughts of the Titanic and the Poseiden movies.  I know, quite irrational, but sometimes you can't help what you're afraid of.  Once we got going, it was a little easier.  I think the worst day was probably the last day sailing back.  Knowing that we were done with our vacation and not being able to just be home with my babies and feeling the beginnings of morning sickness was just a lot for this hormonal prego!  Overall we had a great time and it was nice to get away and connect with each other without the daily distractions of life as we love it!  So now for the pictures!
We sailed with Celebrity Cruise Line on the Millennium. It was a nice ship and we had a great view.  Booking last minute gives you pretty decent prices on a room with a nice balcony.
 We sailed out of Miami (a long drive).  I think next time we'll plan better so we can have the cruise we want from a closer port.

We're guessing this is Miami beach?  Either way, the water was beautiful! 

First stop: Roatan, Honduras.  Here are some locals playing music and dancing as we got off the ship.

We decided to do a relaxing day at a beach on a private island.  The island was nice and housed rescued animals like this sea lion.  That's our ship in the background. 

 Here is our view from our beach.  The water was lovely and there was plenty of shade for my white self to hide from the sun!  The island also had some fake artificial ruins to walk around and a pool and the excursion price included a nice little BBQ lunch.

 Our ship looks pretty big until... compare it to this ship on the left.  Hint: The longer you cruise, the bigger your ship!
This is at the dock in Cozumel, Mexico.

We  walked around the shopping area in Cozumel.  In our first store there was this statue, who turned out to be a guy in a lot of make-up.  You didn't know it until he smiled.  He startled quite a few passersby.  I'm so glad he didn't get us.  I'm not a fan of being startled.

We went to the Margaritaville in the airport in Jamaica on our honeymoon so I thought it'd be fun to check out this one in Cozumel.  Obviously I had to pass on the shot of tequila...maybe next time (or not). 

Wastin away again in Margaritaville!  We did pick up a souvenir salt shaker! 

On our last day of the cruise, they had the monster buffet!  This picture doesn't do it much justice, but the food covered every inch of the tables and it was pretty much everything you would want from a buffet.  The only thing missing was the table of just watermelon for the nauseous pregnant lady!
