After my long hiatius, we decided that we needed yet another cruise (#45). So, along with some friends, we booked a cruise on Princess Cruises Royal Princess. The ten-day trip took us from Ft. Lauderdale, to Eleuthera, St. Thomas, Dominica, Grenada, Bonaire, and Aruba. It was good to get away and just enjoy life for a bit. It also gave me several opportunities to photograph both familiar and new sights. Having traveled to the Caribbean for many decades, the pace of change in the islands seems to accelerate with time. The increasing commercialization and economic colonization of the islands is leaving less and less of the essential natural habitats and culture. So, I try to photograph those that still exist.
I hope you enjoy this Royal Princess 2017 photo album.
