Our last hurrah and early Valentine’s celebration in Tampa before we move to Arizona. After a 5 year hiatus, Michael Bublé starts his Don’t Believe the Rumors tour here in Tampa to a sold out crowd. What a wonderful show …
Our 1st off-roading joyride on our 2015 Polaris Rzr 1000 XP 4. Excited to go with our neighbor who owns a side by side. Bill recently installed a horn and license plate kit so we can eventually make it street legal. We’re interested to learn how it rides on grass, gravel and sand. Here’s how it went.
Neighbor takes us on a joyride with his new all-terrain, off-road Yamaha Viking. It started on a crisp, cloudy morning – 67°F and 8:00am. I got caught in the barrel of a muddy wave! I’m thinking, “The person in front always gets it!” And it’s all caught on video. Thanks a mil, Simi..!
The Carnival Miracle has onboard activities like their: Playlist Productions at their Phantom Lounge; guests can participate in a Lip Sync Battle; join or spectate at the Hasbro Game Show. Personally, I had much enjoyment at the Metropolis Lobby/Atrium learning dance moves or at the RedFrog Pub for a challenging competition of shuffleboard.
Now aboard the Carnival Miracle, we visit Cozumel… yet again. This port is very, very popular. How do I know? This would be my 6th visit to this port from our past Carnival and Royal Caribbean cruises. With so many visits behind us, this time around we check out a local department store while taking a leisurely walk off the main road (Av. Rafael E. Melgar)… enjoying the sights.
Our 3rd visit to Belize. Our choice of port excursions were to visit the Mayan Ruins of Altun Ha (back in Mar.13, 2014) and to Snorkel with Nurse Sharks and Rays (more recently Oct. 4, 2018). This time around, our party of 4 go cave tubing at Nohoch Che’en – a national park throughout which the Caves Branch River runs with the added bonus of a zipline adventure. We will be tubing an area carved out of the limestone foothills of the Maya Mountains and where the river exits an underground cavern. Let’s go!
Have you heard of the fun animal counters you can experience in Roatan? We visited the two options on our past cruises. There’s the Monkey and Sloth Hangout and/or Gumbalimba Park. If you love monkeys, you’ll love how up close and personal you will be walking through their habitat.
