A BLACK AND WHITE LOOK AT
THE CARNIVAL CRUISE,
AUGUST 3 - 11, 2004.
I believe it was my cousin Josephine who first came up with the
idea of the family taking a cruise together. The Carnival Cruise was in the planning stages for over a year. When the
time came to sail, we had 18 family members for the eight day cruise to Puerto Rico, St. Thomas and Tortolla. We
finally sailed from New York on August 3, 2004. Because of Hurricane Charley our departure was delayed for
awhile. But overall we had a great trip - quality time bonding with family members. Also, of course, good food,
lots of fun and some great times at the different stops.
The following photographs were edited from
over 200 photos that I took during the eight days. If anyone is interested in seeing color photographs from this collection, go

On the third night we finally landed in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We had some fun at Senor
Frogs, a happening spot with many tourists. From left to right, James and Jonathan have
a few laughs with a young lady they just met.
Walking around Puerto Rico with my cousin Jonathan we spotted some political graffitti.
My cousins and I got a game a football going at Megan's Bay, St. Thomas. If you look closely, you can
spot the football above my cousins.
