Christmas and New Year's I spent cruising the Caribbean with my family on the enormous Allure of the Seas of Royal Caribbean. Although cruise ships are not my cup tea at all, being together with my entire family was wonderful! My mom & dad invited their 3 children (my 2 brothers & myself) and spouse and their grand children for a family holiday. Since we all live in different countries and we do not see much of each other during the year, this was a real nice opportunity to catch up and to spend some quality time together.
Our itinerary included some nice islands in the Caribbean, one of them being St. Martin. I just love this island which is partly Dutch and partly French. The French influence, the great French food, trendy beach clubs and the vibrant night life (which we unfortunately could not experience since we left the island around sunset) make this island a very special place. We also visited 'Old San Juan' in Puerto Rico. This well kept town with it's cobble stone streets and beautifully colored houses is absolutely worth a visit! The Latin and American influence also give this island a special touch. Furthermore we visited St. Thomas, St. Kits and Nassau - Bahamas. While St. Martin & old San Juan are great islands to just wander around town, the other islands are better to either take an island tour by car or just visit one of the many beautiful beaches and spent a nice relax day soaking up the sun.
A real perk of cruising the Caribbean is that it is the ideal trip to wear resort wear every day all day! So that is what I did! I took my favorite pieces of my Thalassa Boom Resort Wear collection and I mixed and matched my cover-ups, bikinis & bags with great accessories such as necklaces, hats and sandals. For 10 days I wore pieces of my own resort wear collection and concluded that I do not need to change anything about the fit or styles. I felt great and very proud wearing them and I enjoyed passing the website of my Thalassa Boom Resort Wear shop on to woman who stopped me to complement me on my pieces!
