My Make-A Wish :D
Every child with a life threatening disease under the age of 18, gets to have a Make-A-Wish. I was sooo excited to be able to do this. For mine I either wanted to meet a celebrity or go on a cruise. In the end I chose a cruise because it was something my parents could enjoy as well. I wasn’t the only one in my family going through this trial of cancer. My parents had to see their daughter suffer and had to take close care of me. To me, they deserved a Wish just as much as I did. And....going on a cruise is most definitely not something to be complaining about ;) It was a 7 day eastern carribbean cruise on the Royal Caribbean: Oasis of the Seas ship on August 12th through the 20th. It is the LARGEST ship in the WORLD. It was sooo cool. It had lots of pools, a rock climbing wall, a flow rider, a zip line, high-diving stunters, water shows, ice skating rink, and so much more. Being a "wish" patient, we got many perks on the ship. Such as being able to do things after it closed, going back stage of shows, getting cool bags of stuff, and so much more. It was one of the most exciting weeks of my life. I met so many kids to hang out with. There was a teen club and dances that happened every night there. I was able to bring my cousin/best friend Drew with me. We were inseparable the whole week. We had too much fun lol. We flew to Fort Lauderdale, Florida and from there we got onto out cruise ship. The next day was our first stop which was Nassau, Bahamas. We got off the boat and shopped around at the little markets. They had a bunch of cool handmade stuff. We took lots of pictures also. We were cruising at sea the next day and then we stopped in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas and Drew and I did the Tortola Dolphin Adventure. Swimming with dolphins was one of the coolest experiences ever. Next stop was Philipsburg, St. Maarten. We went scuba diving and did a little bit of shopping. Scuba diving wasn’t my favorite. My dad had a hard time with it and couldn’t breathe very well and I was too scared so we both got out and hung out in the boat while my mom and drew kept going. It started to rain a little bit and the water was really muggy due to a storm that occurred the day before. After returning we did some shopping and then went back to the boat. That day and the next two were all traveling at sea days. There was so much to do on the boat so those were super fun days. We all just hung out and did whatever we wanted. It was seriously one of the best and most fun weeks of my life. I am so grateful I was able to Make-A-Wish.
