Greetings, fellow travelers!

I'm thrilled to share my unforgettable voyage with you, highlighting the ship's stunning features and the unique charm of each destination.

Experiencing the Caribbean Gems: St. Thomas, St. Maarten, and Puerto Plata

Each day of our voyage introduced us to a new Caribbean paradise.

In St. Thomas, we spent a day snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters of Magens Bay and exploring historic sites like Blackbeard's Castle. We also sampled local dishes, with the callaloo soup leaving a lasting impression with its unique blend of local greens, okra, and meat.

St. Maarten, a vibrant island split between French and Dutch territories, offered a diverse culinary scene. The local cuisine is a delightful mix of Caribbean, French, and Dutch influences. We enjoyed a thrilling zip-line adventure at Loterie Farm, which offered an incredible bird's-eye view of the island's lush landscapes.

Our final stop was the charming city of Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic. The city's stunning Victorian architecture and vibrant culture were a sight to behold. Sampling the local dish, mofongo, was a culinary highlight—an exquisite mash of fried plantains mixed with garlic, pork cracklings, and broth.

The Celebrity Beyond cruise offers an unmatched blend of luxury, adventure, and culinary delights. Its one of the most luxurious cruise ships that I have set foot on. More than the destinations themselves the fun of a cruise is enhanced due to the ship and this one does not disappoint.

It is bit of a splurge but well worth it.
