We’ve been home from our cruise a little over a week now, and I’ve had so many people ask to see the gorgeous Caribbean cruise photos we took on our trip.

Not gonna lie, it was a lot harder to get back into the work groove than I thought it would be.

I figured that we would get back home on Monday, and I’d be right back at it on Tuesday morning.


Tuesday morning had me feeling like I got run over by a mac truck!

So I decided to give myself grace and ease back into the work load.

That was the best decision because now I can share all of our gorgeous images and not be super stressed.

Caribbean Cruise Photos

We sailed on the MSC Seaside (an Italian cruise line), and visited St Maarten, Puerto Rico, and Nassau, Bahamas.

I have to say, out of all the places we visited, St Maarten was my favorite.

Hands down.

We had the most time there (so we were able to explore a bit more), but it was also the least crowded.

The water was so beautiful, and it was SO incredibly relaxing to sit on the beach and have nothing to do but simply be.


If you are ready for a mental margarita, then sit back, relax, and get ready to scroll!

We’ve got images of turquoise water, sandy beaches, and our cute little family (not that I’m biased 😉 )

If I could change a few things, it would be that we all brought lanyards (so much more convenient for carrying around our room cards).

I would also do more research on adventures we could do before the cruise.

We took the kids snorkeling the last day in Nassau, which was amazing!

But Puerto Rico was a bit of a letdown because all we saw was the beach. If I could go back, I would have researched things to do in PR.

Making sure we were sitting with our friends for the later dinner (vs having our formal dinner at different times).

And I would be sure to drink more champagne!

I could definitely get used to relaxing at the end of the day, with a champagne in my hand, listening to live music!


Has your family been on a cruise?!

I’d love to know where you went and what you did!
