We arrived at the beautiful island of Antigua on December 24, 2016. This was our pretty view from the balcony! The sun was beaming and radiated positive vibes right when we stepped out on the balcony for some fresh air. Roman and I knew we were going to have an amazing day on this beautiful island!
Before we got off the ship and ventured off the island, we had a scrumptious breakfast that fueled us for the day! The food definitely did not disappoint on this cruise ship– every single thing was delicious and fulfilling.
When we arrived at the beach, we were truly amazed with the color and clearness of the water. It was quiet, peaceful and very relaxing. We felt so much at peace and enjoyed every single moment. We loved the whole island feel especially when this kind gentleman offered us a fresh coconut and opened it up right in front of us! It reminded me of being in the island in the Philippines because fresh coconuts are a must when you’re by the water!
In addition to fresh coconut, he also cut open some Aloe Vera and put it all over our skin! In this photo, he was putting some on Doni, Roman’s mom, and she loved it. Being pampered in Antigua– absolute best!
It was a blessing meeting this man. He was singing Christmas Carols and his heart was just so pure and genuine which radiated nothing but love! I wish I had a better picture but I snapped a quick photo and was completely mesmerized by his beautiful voice and enjoyed being serenaded to!
After we got done relaxing and having a blast at the beach, we headed back towards the ship and Roman wanted to stop by a few jewelry stores before boarding. I’ve mentioned countless times how much of a romantic man my boyfriend is but let me just emphasize once again because he is just the sweetest thing ever! For his Christmas present, he bought me a diamond cross necklace as a reminder of what the true meaning of Christmas is all about; the birth of Jesus! He wanted me to have the necklace because it symbolizes many things such as how we met through Christ and that as I wear it everyday, it’s a reminder that Jesus is always with me!Thank you again Roman Marcus for this beautiful, thoughtful, and heartwarming cross necklace. My very first one! Having you in my life is one of my biggest blessings but having you as my ultimate partner in Christ is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Thank you for leading us closer to God every single day and being the man of Christ that you are! You inspire me everyday, I love you!
And we boarded the ship afterwards! Our experience in Antigua was truly one for the books! We’ll never forget this memorable experience; God is so good for making this trip possible!
Thank you for reading! Roman and I are hoping to be fully caught up on our cruise posts– life has been crazy busy but praise Jesus for all the blessings!! ❤️
Hope you all have a great week ahead!
