Transatlantic Cruise – Days 9, 10 & 11 Update

At Sea off the Virgin Islands – Hello once again from the Disney Magic. We left Tortola in the British Virgin Islands today around 4pm to start our travel back to the Bahamas and Castaway Cay. We have one more day at sea tomorrow before we arrive and only 3 more nights left on the ship before returning home on Saturday.

Since my last post, we finished our 5 day journey across the Atlantic Ocean and had an enjoyable day in St. Maarten. Due to road construction, we could not make it to the airport beach which was our plan but did enjoy the time walking around town looking at the shops for a few hours before returning back to the ship to relax by the pool and hit the gym.

Today we arrived in Tortola around 7:30am and met for our shore excursion at 8. We did a sail, snorkel and beach trip which was amazing. Very glad we decided to book it (thanks Mom for the suggestion). After getting back to the pier, we walked in to town for about 30 minutes but there really isn’t much there to do and since our all aboard was early in the afternoon, we headed back to the ship for lunch and just relaxing around the ship.

Overall, the voyage to date has been very relaxing and I can’t believe that it is almost over. This has been one of the best cruises I have taken and I’m not ready to get off the ship yet. I could easily go for another week plus if I could. I have met some very great people on board and can’t wait to stay in touch. Also, surprisingly, I have not spent nearly as much money as I was bracing for this trip which will be nice on the American Express Card at the end.

I’ll post more of a recap when I am back home. For now, here are a few pictures.
