The Holland America Oosterdam. It was a fun ship.

Our very first cruise was in 2011, it was a Mexican Riviera cruise on the Holland America Oosterdam.  Then, we took advantage of living 45 minutes away from Port Canaveral and did the Royal Caribbean Enchantment of the Seas a few times, followed by the Liberty of the Seas. We sort of liked cruising. There were some things we weren’t so thrilled about, so we didn’t cruise as much as we do now. A few things we disliked about cruising in general:

I’m sure this post will incite a few nasty messages so let me start by saying this is all my humble opinion. I’m not talking about anything other than our specific experiences. You might have the time of your life on the other side of cruising. That’s awesome. We’ve had a rash of bad luck so we altered course. Please allow me to explain:

Cruise VLog: Norwegian Epic Valentines Haven Trip | Day 07 | Feb 16 2018

Sean and Stef’s Norwegian Epic Valentines Haven Trip Day 07: Feb 16, 2018.

Day 7 of our Seven Day NCL Cruise on the Norwegian Epic. It’s our last full day on the cruise and we’re sad it’s almost over! WE LOVE NCL! After an AMAZING breakfast at the Haven, we had mimosas on our balcony and then counted the steps from our cabin to the Haven Courtyard Pool. From there we checked out the Bridge Viewing room on Deck 13 and then took a tender boat to the beautiful Great Stirrup Cay, a Norwegian Cruise Line private island. After checking out the island, construction is looking good!, we grabbed a bunch of gorgeous ship shots of the Norwegian Epic. Then we walked up from deck four to deck 16 where we had a fantastic lunch at the Haven Grill. Sadly, then it was time to start packing but not before filling out Vacation Hero cards for our favorite NCL Crew! After saying goodbye to our favorite crew members it was time to see the unreal magic of Titou. WOW! He was insanely great! Finally we had dinner at the delicious Epic Club and drinks in the lounge. A fantastic last evening on the gorgeous Norwegian Epic! Special thanks to NCL Crew: Nikola, Mary Jane, Debbie, Hanno, Modesto, Carol, Carla, Solidad and Elisa!
