September 18th Prompt: Tell a tale of traveling, a city or country you've been to or a favorite vacation.
While Dan and I were on our epic road trip in the summer of 2011 (when we got engaged), we decided it would be a blast to go on a cruise together and booked it from the spotty wi-fi at the Grand Canyon. We chose a Carnival cruise, and we left right when we finished work/school for the semester (December 2011). We flew to Florida, spent the night in Orlando eating out and having fun, and then we boarded the Carnival Sensation the following morning! The ship was beautiful, and it was so cool seeing everything decorated for Christmas!
We spent three nights and four days on the ship, and we also got to go to Freeport, Bahamas and Nassau, Bahamas! We had so much fun together seeing new things, and it was great getting a tan in December! ;)

First evening on the ship :)
Wedding date in the sand! :)
We had a ton of fun on that trip, and I think that may be what inspired Dan to book us a cruise for our honeymoon (that was the big surprise for me!) We LOVE cruises and wish we could go on more... but unfortunately, we don't live near any ports. Maybe sometime!
