In Jamaica our excursion is to spend the day at an all-inclusive resort, but we were in the second group to go so we didn't have to meet for the excursion until 11 am. That meant sleeping in a little bit, which we desperately needed. I started a load of clothes before we went out to the breakfast buffet and then up on deck 10 to take in the views of beautiful Jamaica. I couldn't wait to step foot on land, because what I could see from the ship was gorgeous!
We exited the ship just before 10 am and went ahead to our excursion line. They boarded is shortly thereafter, so we didn't have to wait until our 11 am time slot after all. The bus ride to Secrets was really short- maybe 5 minutes- so we didn't really get to see that much of Jamaica on our way over there.
Once at the resort we were set loose and told to have a fun day. We could go anywhere on both Secrets properties and everything was included. We walked around the grounds and hunted for a couple of available beach chairs in the shade, which took a while but we finally found a spot to claim for the day.
Nick and I were pretty red for Grand Cayman the day before, so we were careful to add more sunscreen multiple times, but I still managed to get sunburned. Not very long after we sat down a waiter came over to offer us drinks. Dad ordered a daiquiri and I asked for something non-alcoholic. At first the waiter tried to convince me that it was ok on vacation, but I just don't like the taste of alcohol so he said he was a mechanic and he could fix me something. He returned with our drinks, and mine was some sort of fruity concoction that was quite tasty but alcohol-free.
Nick and I grabbed our snorkels and headed into the water. We had to swim out a ways to get to the pretty coral and big rocks, but we saw a lot of interesting and different fish and plants under water.
