Caribbean Cruises

We went on our first Caribbean Cruise in 2004 with the highlight being the wedding of our son Michael to Grace Wang on the beach on the island of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.  We also visited Nassau, Bahamas, and San Juan, Puerto Rico.  In 2008 we spent two weeks on a cruise from New Orleans to New York City with our first stop being Santo Tomas, Guatemala.  In Belize, we took a boat trip up the Olde Belize River and then went to the Altan Ha Maya ruins.  In Aruba we went snorkeling among the colourful fish, and then we were on to the colourful city of Willemstad, Curacao.  Our last stop was Samana, Dominican Republic to see some of the local scenes and then be shown how the tourists live.  Our arrival in New York City was a thrill to see the huge Statue of Liberty, the Staten Island Ferry, and to recognize some of the buildings of New York that are familiar sights.
