Cuba

The opportunity to experience the culture of Cuba is one that is destined to make a lasting impression.  An American passport provides entree into nearly anywhere in the world…and now, for the first time in over half a century, Cuba is on that list. Havana nights, hazy with humidity, steamy with its famous coffee, hot […]

Brilliance of the Seas

So I’m not gonna lie… I’m a mega ship kinda girl! Give me the the Allure, Oasis even the Epic and I’m good. The bigger the better! I want options and lots of them. I want rock climbing walls, zip lining, ice skating, boxing, over the ocean pirate planks and whatever else they can think […]

Norwegian Getaway

JUST SAILED… the Norwegian Getaway in October and truly enjoyed the ship. I am a NCL fan so that is no surprise! This ship is ALL Miami, and that’s exactly what Norwegian Cruise Line was going for when they built it. The hull’s art is designed by Miami artist David “LEBO” Le Batard. The painting […]

All Girls Getaway aboard the Emerald Princess

A feel of the classic Mediterranean in the Caribbean!   She debuted in 2007, one of the fleets largest ships with 900 balconies.  An upgrade in 2015 helped the ship maintain its public areas and she received the new Princess Luxury bed (amazing). Emerald Princess has a classic European piazza feel. The ship’s atrium has […]

Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas

Just one look at the Oasis of the Seas and you know this ship is unlike anything out there! Weighing in at 225 tons, the Oasis of the Seas comes close to being the largest ship in the world! Her sister ship, Allure of the Seas has her beat — by five centimeters. No worries, […]

Disney Dream

We sailed aboard the Disney Dream for our second time. I think we already knew this, but our cruise on the Dream proved that three nights just isn’t long enough. It is an amazing ship with just the right amount of Disney touches where it is not overwhelming! We all know that Disney does things […]

Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of the Seas

I sailed aboard the Enchantment of the Seas on a quick Bahamas girls getaway this past September! Very convenient from Port Canaveral and so much fun!  The ports on our itinerary included Nassau, Bahamas and Royal Caribbean’s private Island Coco Cay! (Fabulous snorkeling here) See all the pics here…. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151743803303853.1073741844.142061353852&type=1&l=3445f30777  

Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas….My Review

Jewel of the Seas For my 11th cruise I sailed on the Jewel of the Seas this past December. We arrived at the port around 11:30. We gave our bags to the porters and then headed into the terminal, check-in was a breeze! With our passports and Set Sail Pass in hand we proceeded to […]

Carnival Dream

I had the opportunity to do a Carnival Dream ship inspection this past weekend. It is a nice ship and I would recommend it, it does have quite a few bells & whistles and is very colorful and shiny! (You will see what I mean by this when you look at the pictures). So if […]

Why use a Travel Agent?

I may be getting a little of topic here but I thought this was important… Yet another reason why it is important to use an experienced “Travel Agent”! Imagine opening your balcony door to see a new and breathtaking part of the world each morning. A stateroom with a balcony is a great way to […]

Allure of the Seas-Royal Caribbean

Weighing in at 225 tons, the Allure of the Seas is the world’s largest cruise ship — by five centimeters. (Oasis of the Seas comes in at a close 2nd)  and the WOW factor is truly there! This was my 10th cruise so not a newbie; I do have a few under the belt I […]

Falmouth, Jamaica

Falmouth, Jamaica was one of the ports on my cruise aboard the Allure of the Seas. It was also a big reason we decided on that specific cruise. I have to say I was absolutely stunned reading reviews about this port for the last few months. Almost to the point that I hesitated wondering if […]

Carnival Triumph Review

Stepping onboard I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I have to say I wasn’t exactly a “fan” of Carnival.  I had a previous experience that was not that wonderful.  Although I have to admit that with my expectations low I was pleasantly surprised!  The ship itself is much larger then I expected. It was very […]

NORWEGIAN EPIC

Stepping onboard I was immediately taken by the openness of the ship. A big airy atrium with lots of seating, a café (that even made my favorite Carmel Macchiato!), the reception desk, and the shore excursion desk still left enough open floor space to accommodate ballroom dancing if they so desired! The two-story screen, a […]
