You have no idea how happy I was to see land when I woke up Tuesday July 17th lol! Our first stop was St Maarten. All ashore 8am. Adam, Jim and I toured the island while Melissa and the kids stayed at the pool. Adam read that the Sunset Beach Bar in St Maarten was an entertaining spot. So we jumped into a cab and drove off... Maria, our driver, was really nice. She acted like a tour guide, talking to us about St Maarten.
Getting out of the cab at the Sunset Bar and Grill.
What's most exciting about this bar is that you get to watch jets and big airplanes land all day long. The arrival schedule for all planes is listed on this surf board. I thought that was cool.
My gorgeous husband and the 1st plane about to land.
Jim, also waiting patiently.
This was our first plane.
We noticed a lot of people gathering on the beach.
It's definitely gonna be a BIG plane. Everyone is rushing.
We think, from a distance, that it is a KLM.
Here it comes...
Hold on to your hat and yourself... It's huge! Yes!! It's a KLM. Zoomed right by us. Unreal!
Beautiful Caribbean water
Another plane right above my head.
There it goes. We saw plenty that afternoon.
With my love ♥
A few hours later, we drove back with Maria towards the cruise boat. These are the streets of St Maarten.
I see our boat in the distance.
We took a water taxi to return to the ship instead of walking.
That evening, it was "Mickey's Pirates of the Caribbean" night. It's a Pirate celebration during dinner and fireworks at night. Our little group decided to pull a few pranks on our servers. Here is Marvette with two glasses full of water on both her hands lol!
Then we got Carlos with some whipped cream!
Later, Adam and I enjoyed drinks at Currents Nightclub and Lounge the deck 13 of the ship while our friends watched Disney Pixar Brave.
Finally, we all enjoyed the Disney fireworks from the top floor!! Amazing!!
