The Cruise

I figured it is high time I got around to posting about our cruise!  We had a blast!  We set sail on the Carnival Splendor for 7 days.  It took us to the beautiful lands of Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas.  We had a great time relaxing in the sun and exploring all of the ports!  We loved all the shows on the ship but I would have enjoyed it a bit more if I weren't sick half the time thanks to the rocking boat and my pregnancy! We still had a great time :)

Here are the two of us at Formal night on the ship.  There were two of them but because of the baby in my belly, we decided to skip the second formal night and I had room service bring me a sprite and some pretzels.  Just as yummy I'm sure ;)
One day we decided to take advantage of the disco lessons on board!  It was pretty fun!  Zack and Rob were the only boys at the lesson so the instructor made them perform solo!  They did great.
Our first stop was in Puerto Vallarta!  It was a lot of fun.  For the shore excursion we decided to do the zip-line through the forest!  I sat it out since my Dr. told me it was a "no-no" but everyone else went and had an awesome time.  We took the cruise with our friends Anna and Rob that are in our ward here in Provo.  It was fun to have them with us.
All geared up and ready to go!  Look how cool they look with their helmets and bandanas!
Go Zack go!
Here we are in downtown Puerto Vallarta.  We couldn't have asked for better weather.
We walked along the beach for a long time and saw some amazing sand art!  Here is some of it!
In Mazatlan we went to a resort called El Cid that gave us unlimited food and drinks for the day as well as all access to everything on their resort.  We went kayaking and spent a lot of time in the pool bar with our virgin daquiris :)  We didn't take any pictures that day, but I can say that it was my favorite of the trip!
In Cabo we took a boat ride around some of the cliffs and rock formations and then went snorkeling!  We saw some beautiful fish and enjoyed the water and the nice beaches!  We had a great time and would recommend this trip to anyone!  We had a blast!  I even came back with a tan if you can believe it :)

How exciting. I think David and I might go on a cruise in December. Was it worth it? Or would you suggest going on some other kind of vacation?

So fun! It looks like a fabulous trip - minus the being sick part, I'm sure that was lame. I love that you guys did Disco lessons.
