As many of you know, I just returned from one of the most amazing vacations I have ever been on. It was well worth the five year wait to take a real vacation again!
The vacation began with a flight to Ft. Lauderdale, FL with 50 of my closest friends. You knew this vacation was shaping up to be a wild one when our group drank both of our flights out of our favorite Rum! We spent the first night in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. We partied the first night a little hard while sitting around an awesome pool!
From Ft. Lauderdale, we took a cab to Miami to board the Norwegian Epic for a 7-day cruise. The cruise would make stops in St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Nassau. Here is my frist view of the ship...
So, we board the ship and did I mention, we had an UNLIMITED PREMIUM BEVERAGE PACKAGE?!?! Oh yeah, that's right, the next 7-days are kind of blur, but at least I have photos to remember it by! Here's a few of my favorites...
My very first photo aboard the Norwegian Epic. Notice that I wasted NO time getting a drink!
Every morning, I sat at the front of the ship to have Mimosas and breakfast. Most days I did this alone as my friends were usually still asleep!
Every night there was a different themed party. The Glitter Ball was a 70's party, they had a 80's party and NCL's signature "White Hot Party" which was AWESOME! While there, I attended a Cirque Dreams Dinner and a Show event, The Blue Man Group, Legands in Concert with fantastic impersonations of Whoppi Goldberg, Donna Summer, Jimmy Buffett and Michael Jackson. Then, I went to a Murder Mystery Improv show and a dueling pianos show called Howl at the Moon. There were tons of game show type events like Deal or No Deal, the Newleywed Game and the Dating Game, which my friend took part in, but he was not picked! Sad!
While in St. Thomas, we took our group out for a snorkeling and boozing event aboard the Dancing Dolphin Catamaran. We got to swim with the turtles and check out some really cool stuff thanks to our tour crew Gabe and Kanaan! These guys were a BLAST!

Crazy Gabe! This guy was hilarious!
Basically, it was a whole lot of cocktailing after the snorkeling had finished. These guys treated us great and if you ever get to the St. Thomas area, you should definitely look them up. Here's their site: http://www.coolboatsusvi.com
That's it for now, but make sure to check back for more blogs as I locate more of my pictures.
