RFFC: The Ports!

Taking a Run For Fun Cruise(RFFC) gives you the opportunity to run in exciting locations. During the port stops, you also have a chance to explore the places you are visiting either on your own or with a group excursion. Lets take a look at where RFFC can take you in 2015!

RFFC Caribbean February 2015- There is still time to book last minute to take a romantic Valentines Vacation with RFFC! Booking Info found here.

The February cruise starts out in Fort Lauderdale which will be a warmer climate for a lot of folks! You have the option of participating in the A1A Marathon which offers a 5K, Half Marathon and Marathon on February 15 (Sunday). Come in a couple of days early, enjoy FLL's nice weather, take the water taxi around to see the sites or head to the beach! Board the Regal Princess on the 15th (after the race) and be on your way to 3 Caribbean ports.

Wake up Feb 16 to Princess Cruise Lines private island, Princess Cays. I have never been to Princess Cays but I have been to RCCLs private island in the Bahamas and boy is it beautiful! It is so peaceful, the beach is plentiful and you can just relax. RFFC has something special planned for you at Princess Cays, take part in the Princess Cays Team Challenge and the Bahama Mama Relay!

With a day at sea under your belt, you will feel refreshed as you take on a 5K along Charlotte Amalie Harbor on Feb 18. Enjoy the rest of your day taking in some of the beautiful beaches that the USVI have to offer. Magen's Bay is often listed as one of the top 10 beaches in the world. Interested in more adventure then relaxation? Try SCUBA Diving! We took a Discover SCUBA class at Coki Beach Dive Club during our visit and had an amazing experience. If you have never seen the world underwater, I highly recommend it!

 Take a dive in St. Thomas

On the 19th, sail away to St. Maarten, the smallest two island nation in the world! That's right, you are in for a 2 nation treat with half of the island being French and the other being Dutch! Begin your morning with a 5K or 10K along the beautiful boardwalk. Ready to take on a full day? Visit Maho Beach where you can see the planes landing at SXM airport, a fun family adventure. Visit the French side of the island for lovely shops, cozy little restaurants and fantastic beaches. We spent a day roaming the shopping on the Dutch side ending up at a lovely beach bar and finished our day in some lovely loungers.
