Trip title here

This was the inaugural cruise aboard the MS Zuiderdam.





And so our trip begins.  Here we are in line at the all new Northwest terminal at Metro Airport.








Here's a shot of the Volendam (left) and Zuiderdam (right) as they await our return from Half Moon Cay,  Holland America's private island in the Bahamas.






The pier at Bassetere, St Kitts.





Fountain in the part on St Kitts.  (Sorry, no tours so not many pics of St Kitts)










Port view of our ship.  Our room was right immediately above the life boats and two forward of the mid-ship outside elevator.





Close-up of our room.  It was right above the middle of the lifeboat on the right.





8 ships were in St Thomas when we were there.  Lots of people.  They closed the main street so people had more room to walk and shop.





A small little boat docked in St Thomas.

Another little put-put.

Per PMY magazine:

28. KISSES | L: 175'0" Y: 2000
While most people naturally wonder who owns a megayacht that they see, people in Nantucket were buzzing about the identity of this yacht’s owners this summer due to the intriguing name. Could it have something to do with candy, they wondered? Maybe, but they’ll just have to keep guessing, as the owners like to keep things quiet.

The British Colonial Hotel in Nassau.





Just a view looking out over the city.

Yet another shot of the MS Zuiderdam.  Holland America's newest ship.  First in the Vista class line.





Royal Caribbean's Sovereign of the Seas was here too.





As was Disney Wonder.






And Explorer of the Seas.





And Carnival Fascination.






And the Volendam.






The entrance to the port from above.






Another shot.





Looking across the two piers.  Do you see the 5 ships in this picture?





Cruising is hard work.


My two cabin mates in action.





The "Mickey" ship.





Another (kinda blurry) shot of the Disney Wonder.
