Castaway cay, oh how I miss thee. To be truthful I was never a beach person and I believed holidays spent just lying upon the sand a waste, but now I have been semi-converted! This part of the trip really made me change my perspective of beaches and relaxing!

The view outside our room after we docked. That morning my siblings signed up for some snorkeling, I didn't go but apparently the water was so murky they didn't get to see anything. I'm so glad I decided to just sleep in, they had to get up at 6am or 7am for muddy snorkeling.





I wish I found these or was told about this earlier! These are the cards for breakfast room service. Basically you check off what you want, hang it outside your room door and you will have your breakfast served to you the next morning. There are lots of breakfast options and you can also request a time for it to be delivered. Be wary though, I hear that the morning of the last day many people get room service so you may not get your food exactly at your requested time.


We decided to walk and find the tram to take us to Serenity Bay, the adult only beach.

The walk was actually quite far, or perhaps because I was starting to get impatient. There were lots of food places along the way and a store too which also sold suntan lotion, towels, toys, and what not for a good day on the beach.

One of the food stands. To be honest it took a while to get used to not having to pay for anything, you just walk up and order your food, eat and leave, with the exception of alcohol of course.

Finally there....
Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! My sister and I swam out first while my brother watched our stuff. We reached that small island in the middle and stayed there for a quite a bit. Afterwards my sister and brother went out, to be honest I don't think anyone really needed to stay behind to look after our stuff...

I'm so glad I grabbed a bag of these chips from the food stand, I was starving at this point.



When I look at these photos I can almost hear the waves and feel the water...

        
Enchanted Garden was the restaurant for our final night's dinner. I was excited to eat here because it looked gorgeous in the photos.

This photo was actually taken during lunch, there's no way you'd get a photo like this at dinner because it would be so packed.

Our server would suggest various dishes to us every night. I also noticed that he would get very happy and excited if you chose the dish he recommended.

Our breads, butter and special spread of the night. I can't particularly remember what this one tasted like..

My romaine salad....my sister and brother laughed at me when this came! However! It was actually pretty easy to eat but not enough sauce. Those must be the biggest croutons I've ever seen and I'm not a fan of them in the first place.

My fish and thai sauce, thai sauce makes everything good.

I think this was my sisters dish.

Again my trio of mini desserts...

Our adorable towel elephant thanks to our room keeper!



The next morning it was my turn to laugh at my sisters breakfast, look at her two hard boiled eggs =D
