I've been on two or three cruises before with my parents, but my two friends have never been on one before. Have you ever been? I just don't know much about the islands we're going to. Do you know anything about excursions in St Thomas or St Maarten? We're trying to figure out what to do.
I think most college kids have spring break the week after, the week of the 13th.
The America's Cup regatta at St Maarten is a blast! We've done it twice before and really enjoyed it. The mountain bike trip on St. Thomas is pretty fun too. You end up at a wonderful beach after some pretty tough biking. We played golf on St. Thomas once and that was nice, but pretty expensive, especially if you rent clubs.
Hi Sarah - Our family of 6 are going march 5th too. We have 4 boys - 7, 14, 17, & 18. I ask for all your'e prayers for our 17 year old josh. He just got out of the hospital & has a 40% collapsed lung. He is flat out determined to go, & we surely want to do the right thing. He has no problem breathing, but his lung can take a while to clear up. Apparantly he has spontaneous pneumothorax - So when you see a skinny kid on the ship, thats him! - Anybody else with kids/teens going? - Kevin S.
