Grand Cayman and Stingrays!
Terrifying! I was terrified. Our next stop was in Grand Cayman which was absolutely gorgeous. I kept joking with my mom about going to get money out of our "offshore accounts" that we had in Grand Cayman. There are banks everywhere. I was excited for this day because I love to snorkel and the water in Grand Cayman is crystal clear. We chartered a boat and decided to swim and snorkel with the stingrays. I knew I would be nervous, which I was, and also scared. They are giant, floating things in the water that I KNOW were chasing me! People tried to tell me to just imagine them as cats. I HATE CATS! Regardless of my anxiety, I held one and even kissed it. It was slimy and gross and tried to eat my face but... a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Ha. We made a couple additional stops to snorkel and those pesky stingrays kept following me around. Let me snorkel in peace. All I could think about was The Crocodile Hunter, may he rest in peace. I love to snorkel but I prefer fish over stingray. It was a crazy experience and one I will never forget (and probably never do again). Back on the boat, we had a late lunch at Johnny Rockets. YUM! The waiters even came out and did a little dance for us which was hilarious. Before dinner we went to the Once Upon A Time show which was by far my favorite. The performers took fairytales and put modern music to it. Naturally, my favorite one was when Pinocchio came out and did N'Sync's No Strings Attached! It was also another formal night on the ship so it was fun to see everyone's fancy dresses. We took a picture with Antonio, the best waiter on the ship, before calling it a night in the casinos!
