Our cruise to Cabo San Lucas

Ryan and I just got back from our cruise to Cabo San Lucas!  We had a great time and were able to relax and just spend time together. 
This was before the cruise left at our port in San Diego.  Those are some battleships in the background and there was a submarine on the other side.  It was pretty windy throughout the whole cruise.. hence the messed up hair and big shirt. 
Ryan got this hat to cover him up from the hot hot sun.  I think he looks like a cute little goofball but it did the job! 
Well to our surprise we had BUNK BEDS! When we signed up for the cruise I thought that every room had two twin beds that could be pushed together... but no.. with our luck we got the bunk beds.  We tried just sleeping on the twin bed the first night but ryan takes up to much room and I almost fell off a few times.  At least we have some things to laugh at for the next couple years. 
The first day at sea it was a little chilly in the morning so we went mini golfing.  It adds a whole new dimension to golf on a cruise ship thats rocking...  the ball doesn't stay where its supposed to... at least thats what I blame in on.. hehe. 
This is our ship.  We were standing on a balcony in the front half and its pointing to the back.

They have a midnight buffet one of the nights on the ship with tons of beautifully prepared food. You can tell that the chefs put a lot of time into it to make our pictures beautiful. 
Here I am with the elephant towel! 
Ryan and I at formal night in the dining room.  We had the best food every night and had some awesome waiters. One was from St. Vincent and the other was from the Philippines. The nice thing about cruises is you can eat as much as you want and not look at any prices.  Ryan would order several appetizers and then a few main courses as well as dessert.  
This is carved cheese on display at the midnight buffet. 
We just docked in Cabo and my face looks really greasy because I put lots of sunscreen on.  I still got burnt though.  It is such a beautiful ocean area.  The town though has its trashy parts like all towns.  There are also lots of hispanics selling things on the street which gets pretty annoying.  The sad thing was seeing the kids going up to people and trying to sell things as well.  We also had men come up to us and ask us "if we wanted to get high"... it was an interesting experience. 
Ryan had to ease his way into the ocean because it was a lot colder than we thought.  It was nice though once we got all the way in.
