In March 2022 I got to do my first real travel, visiting places I haven’t been before, in a long time. I went on a cruise to the Southern Caribbean, calling in at Saint Maarten, Saint Lucia, and Saint Kitts and Nevis. It was a ten day cruise, with three sea days, a stop at San Juan and at RCCL’s “private” beach in Haiti. I’m going to make three posts out of my pictures. I only took my cell phone, not my Nikon camera, on this trip. I don’t think I will do that on future trips. Although the phone, a top of the line Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5g, takes very good pictures, opening the camera and more especially keeping it open for more than a couple of minute was a pain. The ship was only half full as a COVID precaution and had only half the usual staff. But they tried really had to give is the “full” cruise experience. The first set of pictures is about the cruise experience, with a couple of ports where I didn’t get many pictures.
