Royal Caribbean's Ship Repositioning Cruises

{More of this please!}

I went on my first cruise in 2007 and fell in love. With cruising, that is. Mom and I left out of Fort Lauderdale on the Enchantment of the Seas for a 5 night cruise with Royal Caribbean. We chose to go in October because it's hurricane season and the rates are cheaper. (Note: I think it sprinkled for an hour while we were in Grand Cayman.) Our itinerary was as follows:

{Swimming with the rays}

Day One: Board ship and get settled

Day Two: Day at Sea

Day Three: Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Day Four: George Town, Grand Cayman

Day Five: Day at Sea

Day Six: Back to port

 We had a blast, the food was fantastic, facials and massages were booked and we did some pretty awesome shore excursions (Chukka Cove Polo Club for horseback riding on the beach - and in the water, and Sting Ray City Sand Bar where we got to swim with sting rays. I even got to hug one. And we hit up Margaritaville in both places!) There was so much going on that I felt like I needed to take a vacation after my vacation just to recoup.

If you've ever wanted to try cruising or if you're looking for an awesome deal, check out Royal Caribbean's ship repositioning cruises. There's a 12 night deal that starts at just over $1000. That's less than $100 bucks a night, all your meals are included and you're on a boat in the middle of the ocean going to great places that are far away from work while sipping fruity drinks that come with umbrellas. It's a win-win situation, folks. Here's the breakdown:

Day One: Departs out of Boston, MA

Day Two: Cruising

Day Three: Cruising

Day Four: Cruising

Day Five: Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Day Six: Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Day Seven: Castries, St. Lucia

Day Eight: Cruising

Day Nine: Willemstad, Curacao

Day Ten: Oranjestad, Aruba

Day Eleven: Cruising

Day Twelve: Cruising

Day Thirteen: Docks in Fort Lauderdale, FL

There's six days at sea which gives you ample time to explore the ship and just kick back and relax.
