I took these photos from my Caribbean cruise with Princess Cruises earlier last month, and all I want to do is go back. This winter is harsh in New York City, and although the Caribbean islands are often overlooked, these photos most definitely instill the wanderlust I need to take a trip back -- asap.
The water in the Cayman Islands is crystal clear with beautiful white sand, crisp cotton ball clouds.
As soon as we docked in Cozumel, Mexico - we sat to soak in this view for a good twenty minutes.
The beautiful beaches of Cozumel, Mexico.
Again, white sand and teal waters off the Mayan Ruins in Tulum, Mexico.

I took this photo while on the ship, as the sun was sinking from the sky into the ocean. There is a stillness here that forces you to be present in this very moment, and it takes your breath away.
I remember waking up from my stateroom this morning to use the restroom, and my eyes half-open caught a glimpse of the red colors outside my window. I decided to drag my a-s over to see this. This sunrise was and probably always will be one of the most stunning sunrises I have ever seen in my life.
