Caribbean Cruise Part 2: St. Maarten and Newlywed Game

St. Maarten was our second port. For St. Maarten we booked a "Kayak and Snorkel Adventure" through the cruise ship, that was great!

We didn't take any pictures on that excursion because we didn't want to get my camera wet, but we had a lot of fun. We kayaked all around a big bay and then up to beach where we then jumped in the water to snorkel. We saw a ton of beautiful fish out there

After our excursion we walked around St. Maarten (Dutch side of the island). There's a great little area by the beach with cheap beers where you can walk around drinking and shopping. That's definitely the Mr's kind of shopping!

There were some fun reggae bands playing too.

I really liked St. Maarten and thought our time there was too short. I would love to go back see the French side some day.

The night after St. Maarten we showered up and had a nice dinner on the ship.

After dinner we went to see (and try to get on) the "Newlywed/Not So Newlywed Game Show" that was happening on board the ship.

We we didn't get picked but my parents did! They were the "old married couple" (married 38 years!)

It was HILARIOUS! For them and for me!

I was shocked how well they knew each other and at some of their answers more racy answers! My Dad even knew my Mom's bra size. Very impressive, Dad!

They didn't win. They couple who'd been married 2 years won. But they got a nice tote bag and a lot of laughs as their consultation prize.

When we got back to our room that night the little monkey we'd bough in St. Maarten was tucked into bed by the turn down service. So cute!

Tomorrow, St. Kitt's!
