Caribbean Cruises Diaries
Our cruise on the "MS Koningsdam" from Holland America Line begins in Fort Lauderdale. The destinations of our trip are Half Moon Cay / Bahamas, Grand Turk / Turks and Caicos Islands, Amber Cove / Dominican Republic and the ABC islands: Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao.
Three days of vacation in Florida are behind us. The SUV rented in Miami did a good job and was returned at Fort Lauderdale Airport. An Alamo shuttle bus brought us to the now familiar cruise port, known as the Port Everglades.
We had been looking forward to the cruise on board Mein Schiff 1 for months. The winter in our region was cold and snowy, so a vacation under the Caribbean sun was a good fit for us. The cruise started in La Romana in the east of the Dominican Republic.
