In January 2016 I was extremely fortunate - my mother and stepfather took me on a ten day Royal Caribbean cruise on Vision of the Seas, out of Tampa. We stopped at Key West, San Juan, and St. Maarten. We were supposed to stop at Haiti but the unrest there caused the cruise line to cancel the stop.
I had been burnt out on writing before this trip began. An emotional novel back in autumn 2015 had fried me wholly. This trip revitalized me!
Here are my notes and photos, which I am still adding.
