Honeymoon - St. Lucia

The cruise's first stop was St. Lucia. The day before we had decided that the "Land & Sea Combo" was going to be our first excursion of our honeymoon. On it, we got a great tour of the island and spent most of the morning driving all around St. Lucia seeing the different sights. As lunch approached we made our way back to the water and boarded a Catamaran for an afternoon on the water. While on our tour of the island, we got to go into the "Drive-Thru Volcano," St. Lucia's very own Caldera. The tour guides took us into the volcano where we got to see the hot steam and water still bubbling up from beneath the surface. The highlight of the Catamaran ride was getting an up close view of the Pitons and getting a chance to swim in the water after a long day. The first thing you notice about the Caribbean Sea is how salty the water is - makes floating really easy. After that we made our way back to the ship for dinner and more exploring of the ship.
