De Palm Island, Aruba!

Aruba is great, but what makes it even better is watersides, banana boating, free food, and friends! Luckily I found all of these things on De Palm Island last Thursday when we had a crew excursion to the island! We had tried to go once before, but they wanted us to pay nearly 100 dollars because we were not in a group, so when this tour was offered to the crew for less then half we were so excited! Here are some pictures from our adventure...

We had to take a little ferry to get to the island!

The singers and dancers ready for some fun.

De Palm Island! Isn't that just the bluest water?!

I would not mind if this was my home! It is actually one of the restaurants on the island.

The waterslides!

Jordan and I. Clearly getting VERY tanned!

And banana boating! Always so hilarious!

Meet the cast! Tonight we celebrated our 100th show, and we didn't even know it! We only have 2 and a half weeks left. It's a bit bittersweet, but we are all very excited to be going home!

Zip lining in Antigua!

Finally, I went zip lining in the Caribbean! It has been a very exciting week here on the Serenade of the Seas. Because of the Tropical storm we had to change the whole order of the voyage around. Luckily it didn't effect us too much! (Except for a few rocky shows!) But it was a fun week, and the highlight was definitely zip lining!! It was in the middle of the jungle and we got to do 9 different zips.

In our 'Cab' to Zip lining. It almost didn't make it up the hills, and our driver was quite the character!

The sign you DO NOT want to see on your way to zip line!!

ZIP LINING! Very high, going tree to tree!

Alison and Kelly in their gear!

Jordan and I after zipping!

The four of us after a very successful day!

The countdown is ON!

We are heading home in 4 WEEKS! That means it's time to start packing! I cannot wait to breath fresh Canadian air, go to Tim Hortons, and drive! I am also so excited to see family and friends. I haven't seen everyone since January 4th, and that seems like forever. Only 28 more day until it is GOODBYE Serenade, and HELLO Canada! Cannot wait!

Horseback Riding in Beautiful Aruba!

We got the opportunity to horseback ride on the beach in ARUBA! I am jealous of myself! It was so much fun, and such a beautiful ride! I am so glad I finally got to horse back ride on the beach. Check out the photos...

The view we had on the ride!

Jordan on his horse 'Prince'.

Me and my horse!

We took a break after an hour of horseback riding for some water, and pictures.

Heading back, but I didn't want to!


Gong show at Senior Frogs!

We had a FULL day off when we were in St.Thomas. So we went to Senior Frogs, where they are quite generous with giving out free tequila! There was a pool, and a volleyball court at this senior frogs, so we were there for hours! It was a blast!
Good way to start the day.. with a yard of Margarita!

Jord with his drink and very fashionable hat!

My very fashionable balloon hat!

At the bar, after Jordans free shots!

But Jarrod got the motherload!

A day in Curacao!

Curacao is probably one of my favourite we go to here in the Caribbean! It has beautiful while sand beach, and the colors are beautiful. A few weeks ago Jordan and I had a date day just to explore!
The Rif Fort, right outside the port.

Then we got ice cream! I was a very hot day!

The moving bridge in Curacao! Very cool!

A yellow church. I thought it was very pretty.

GORGEOUS colors in the town!

Now, heading back to the ship!

On a beautiful day in Curacao, a few of us went to Cabana beach! It's one of my favourite beaches in Curacao. You can get a cabana for 15 dollars, and the bar tenders come right to you!! Not the mention the water is the prettiest shade of blue! It's the lazy persons dream beach destination. After lounging around in the sun for a few hours, we decided to take a few beach photos, but not just any beach photos...

Dancer style beach photos! Ali and I!

Almost mirrors!

Jarrod and I doing some organic jumps.

Somebody on the beach didn't think I could do a back handspring, so I had to prove them wrong!

Playing around with some color swap on the camera.

Crew show.

Last week the production cast did an all crew performance. Since not all crew is allowed to attend the production shows, we decided to do a full show just for them. It turned out to be a lot of fun, and we had an excellent crowd! On a regular show our call time is usually an hour before showtime. In that hour we pre-set all costumes, fix make-up, and stretch onstage. Usually the curtain is shut and we are all warming up behind that. But since it was for crew the main curtain was up, so a few of us used the opportunity to take some pictures using the full stage!

I thought it was a cool view of the stage.

The ladies of the cast!

And a classic jumping picture!!

Jordan and I.

Masquerade ball!

The production cast decided to host a party for the whole crew, here onboard the Serenade of the Seas! We made it a masquerade ball! It turned out to be a hit, and many crew members attended, and in costume too.

There we some very creative masks - some purchased, and some hand crafted! It was a great night of dancing, laughter, and drinks of course!

My Lady Gaga inspired mask! Which was taped to my face!

The Devil, or Jordan double fisting!

Jarrod's creative mask!

Some of the ladies of the cast, with a variety of masks!
