My wife and daughter and I drove to Tampa, Florida (with a one night stop at Disney World) and took a 7 night cruise on the Carnival Legend to Cozumel (scuba diving), Belize (snorkeling on the barrier reef, amazing!), Roatan Honduras (snorkeled with dolphins, one of the coolest things I've ever done!), and Grand Cayman (Stingray City where we kissed giant rays!).
Here I am at the beginning of our drive on Day 1, wearing my Doxa SUB 1200T Professional Diving With Legends:
There's nothing more relaxing than watching the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea go by while reading Clive Cussler's latest on our stateroom's balcony:
The DWL over the water:
I color coordinated my DWL and my SUB 1200T Pro NUMA:
My drink's umbrella matched the NUMA (it's a Miami Vice...half strawberry daquiri, half pina colada):
I hadn't set the time when I took this photo of my NUMA over the caribbean:
Another Miami Vice on another night (gee, I look like a drunkard but those were the only two drinks I had the whole trip...seriously!), but this time back wearing the DWL:
There were two "elegant dress" dinners during the cruise so I wore my vintage Doxa tank watch on those evenings:
In the ship's watch store, they sold Tags and Movados, and Tissots. The gentleman working the counter asked me about my DWL and I explained the Doxa history to him and he even held my watch. He was very impressed and said so. A couple nights later I stopped in wearing my NUMA and he thought it was really neat that I had both.
In Grand Cayman, Raj at Island Time commented on my Doxa DWL the second I walked into the store. I didn't know that Island Time carried Doxas. Raj really like the DWL and I wish I had my NUMA with me as he really wanted to see it. Here's a photo of Island Time's Doxa display (they had 1000T and 5000T SUBs for sale):
If any of you from Europe were planning a cruise to the caribbean, you could make sure the ship stops at Grand Cayman and Island Time is a 5 minute walk from the port. Buying a Doxa there would save on the VAT, right? I bet you could call Raj and have the watch you want waiting for you...just a thought. It was a real pleasure talking with him about Doxas and we all know how rare Doxa retailers are, right?
I wore my DWL while scuba diving in Cozumel. I switched between the DWL and the NUMA when snorkeling in Belize on the barrier reef and snorkeling with 26 dolphins in Honduras and getting kissed by stingrays in the Cayman Islands.
More photos to follow when I get my underwater camera pictures developed....
