Monarch Madness

I got back from my cruise on Monday and I thought I would share my weekend with you via photos :)

It was SO much fun and I honestly got depressed on Monday when we got home. I didn't want to return to normal life. The only perk was that I got to see Landyn :)

Cruises are my favorite way of traveling. I am a girl who loves a plan and their itineraries and I are a match made in heaven. Everyday I would list everything I wanted to do for tat day. One thing is for sure, there was absolutely no downtime. I made us go to every trivia session, every show, every contest, I even went so far as going to the napkin folding class. Obviously I had to go to that one on my own, as well as Bingo, but I didn't want to miss a thing!

So without further adieu.. I give you my Monarch of the Seas cruise adventure :)
Bottle of Chard waiting for us when we got into our room :)
 Flash Mob - aka my dream
 Rocket launch from the ship, gorgeous!

Corona buckets all day
Same picture that I took on my last cruise

We've arrived in Nassau!
 Senor Frogs 

 We got to go on stage to get a shot, all because the Floridans won in the Michael Jackson dance off.

 We took a cap to the most gorgeous beach. The water was perfect.

 Our stateroom attendent, Melville, made us a swan!
 The Vikings Lounge so the boys could smoke cigars

My first time trying escargot
Always trying to make a weird face
 Midnight Poolside Buffet
 Midnight Poolside Dancing

 Shots shots shots.. everybody! 

Digital Camera Scavenger Hunt all over the entire ship. We went up & down and all around for 25 minutes straight taking pictures with every different item on the list. 

 Frozen Mudslide= Delish!
 The boys got super strong Mango Mai Tai's

With the gambling, the constant flow of drinks, plates & plates of food, the games, the shows, and the lack of sleep, I was thoroughly exhausted come Monday.

When we got home the four of us went to Chili's and it was so odd to have to pay for our food again. At dinner each night, we had 2 appetizers each and 2 entrees, plus dessert. We hit up the midnight pizza place, the midnight buffet, breakfast every morning, lunch everyday. It was a never ending food heaven.

At any given time I either had a Mimosa (morning time), Corona, glass of chard, or vodka H20 in my hand. We passed out every night around 2ish and were back up at 8 to start all over again.

I loved every second of it & I can't wait to book my next cruise :)
