S: Caribbean Cruise-March 2011-Oceania Cruises
1: Caribbean Cruise 2011 This cruise was the last big vacation we were able to spend with Mark before his battle with cancer really began. He had recovered from his initial surgery well enough that I believe he was truly able to enjoy this trip. It was wonderful to have this time to build such beautiful lasting memories.
