We all slept well last night for a change! We arrived in St. Maarten this morning. We stayed on the ship because it’s a lot of trouble for us to go anywhere and plus we haven’t had time to spend at the pools on the ship yet. We would have liked to see the island again – it’s one of our favorites – but we’ll wait until the kids are older. Yes, we really need some R & R! or at least something a little closer to it than dragging five kids around an island.
We met up with the others at the pool. I took a turn on the Aquaduck with Ella. It was more fun than it looked like it would be. It was pretty fast most of the way and plenty of hills. Besides that we just played at the pools for a while and then ate lunch on deck where we were still able to watch the sea turtles.

After lunch, Jacob, Max, and Ella had appointments at the Bibbity Boppity Boutique, (err, it’s called Pirate League today) to get pirate makeovers. Zoe doesn't meet the age requirement. We bought pirate costumes before the trip, so they just got the makeup and some accessories. The results were awesome! The kids loved looking like pirates. They also loved the experience!
First they chose pirate names by a random roll of the dice. Then they chose the look they wanted and got started.

The kids spent some time at the kids club while Zach and Zoe took a nap. Kyrie was able to spend some time at the Spa and I got some time to finish watching the movie that I started watching last night. It was called Upside Down, a science fiction movie that’s too hard to describe here.
When we got back to the room though, Zoe wanted to put on her PJs and head to the nightly show. I guess the girl is telling us to stick to a routine!
