This week Lauren is sailing Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas, a seven-night cruise from San Juan, Puerto Rico. This cruise will stop in St. Thomas, USVI; St. Kitts, Antigua, St. Lucia, and Barbados.
It’s 7:45 am and I start to panic for a brief second, that I’ve overslept my alarm. Then I remember where I am… St. Thomas! A quick peek out the balcony window and it’s confirmed. I’m in paradise! A cup of coffee and some fresh fruit outside on my own personal deck is pure bliss. We’ve docked in Crown Bay and I can hear the town starting to wake up. Nearby private boats are starting their engines; dock crews are working diligently to ensure our ship is properly anchored and ready for passengers to depart.
