One of my biggest packing tips might seem a little odd for sailing off in the Caribbean… Bring a hoodie! Not for island adventures of course but for the Dive In Movies late at night on deck! Sharing all about the Dive In process and my traditions for those nights.
Panama Canal is officially the southern most point that I have sailed to, and let me tell you that day was a journey on it’s own. This destination was the reason why I went on my specific cruise this year and I now have the honor of saying that I’ve done it twice. All the way through, turned around and came back again.
I was pleased as punch the moment that I stepped ashore in Aruba. It’s been one of my favorites from the beginning and I couldn’t wait to explore it further. I did something a bit out of the norm and booked a tour through Carnival that gave a tour of the island. Normally, because I am so comfortable on that island I would have just hired a local and saved quite a bit of money. The tour did not disappoint and gave me an insight to the island that I didn’t quite see before.
Miss Me? I’ve been a bit busy sailing the Caribbean sea these last couple of weeks. I managed to work my fins off right until it was time to sail out, so it was a much needed break. Where have I been? Well, this year’s vacation was a 14 day cruise and a partial Panama transit!
St. Thomas is always one of my favorite islands. I have been there a couple times and have done quite a few excursions. On this last trip I decided to do only a couple things, keep it laid back and all within walking distance of the port.
I shared this past Fall all about the embarkation. Well, things changed majorly in the past month so I’m sharing all the new details as well as keeping it with the port this time. As I’m not positive on the other ports new policies this is all about my experience getting on the ship at Port Canaveral/Orlando Florida for Carnival Cruise Lines.
The 60 degree heat wave we had here in Michigan yesterday has me feeling tropical vibes again. Not that it really ever went away, but you better believe this girl was sporting some sandals and dreaming about that Peach Sangria from the Serenity Deck on Carnival Cruises. Which is why I am sharing a countdown of my 3 favorite drinks from the ship!
It’s almost the weekend so it’s a perfect time to talk about pastries. Not just any pastries, I’m talking about French pastries from L’Express by Bacchus. As soon as we passed this bakery I knew I was going to be doing a power walk to get myself a good authentic French croissant once the tour bus stopped.
