My Spring Break was probably anything but boring. I completely relaxed. But that’s boring! Well, I was on a cruise ship! We went to three places; Key West, Florida; Cayman Islands; and Ocho Rios, Jamaica. It was my first cruise and I had a lot of fun!
It was a complete different experience. I watched comedy shows, ate ice cream 24/7, as well as lazed around in the room a lot!!! I thought that it was to be less fun,. but I was completely wrong. In the mornings I relaxed, and at night I partied!!!! I loved it sooooo much! If you haven’t gone on a cruise, I would seriously recommend it. It is a nice place to go to relax, and catch up on long lost sleep.
The only part I didn’t enjoy was traveling there. There was so much traffic, that it took us from 6:00 in the morning, to 11:00 at night just to reach Jacksonville, Florida. That wasn’t even where the port was! The next we woke up again early, and it still toke us from about 6:00 in the morning to 2:30 to reach port.
Anyway, first place we went to was Key West, Florida. I didn’t get off, because my knee hurt, and my parents and the other family friends who came with us on the cruise were just doing sightseeing. So if it included walking, count me out! Anyway, I spent my day going to a place called Camp Carnival. It was probably the most boring thing that I have ever done! And honestly I am not saying that they did a bad job, and you should never go there, but I felt it was not very fun for my age. My parents however, went para sailing, and now, I want to go!
The second place that we went to is Cayman Islands. If you didn’t know already, it is a British colony. I had so much fun there, but we had to come back at 3:30, so we didn’t really even have a full day. We did a activity for the whole day where we swam with the sting rays. That was the first stop. The water was shallow at that particular spot, and it was only 5 feet water. That was super fun! At first my dad made me wear a life vest because I was standing on the tips of my toes. But then he let me take it off and swim by myself because I begged him. After that we went to the next stop. There the water was 12 feet deep!!!! I swam with a life vest of course, no questions asked. But the rest of my family were scared and they didn’t go. We came out at around 2:30. It took us about 15-20 minutes to get back to the boat.
The last place I went to was Jamaica. I loved that place probably more than all of the other places. I saw dancing did bobsledding, as well as get a bunch of souvenirs! It was super fun! But the only reason this might not be as long as the other paragraphs is because you have to see it to believe it. I even saw a bunch of lizards, as well as a chameleon! I hope if you ever go, that you will enjoy it as much as I do, so bye!
