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 2nd time experiencing this snorkeling port excursion here in the CoCo View Channel near Fantasy Island and the French Cay area of Roatán. Enjoy a preview of what you’ll see snorkeling the Prince Albert tanker.
We arranged this port excursion outside of Carnival Miracle (as we did a past excursion when on Carnival Conquest). Typically, the cruise arranges tours to Stingray City but in massive boat loads. It’s not our idea of enjoyment brushing shoulder to shoulder with a crowd to get a glimpse of wildlife. We read a lot of great TripAdvisor reviews (4.5 out of 5 stars based on 114 reviews) about Action Water Sports. It’s actually our 2nd time using this company as we had just been here just last month. We reserved 2 jet skis as single riders (Total: $220) through Grand Cayman Cruise Excursions (Island Marketing Ltd).
We received ~$600 credit in order to reserve this cruise accumulated from a Casino Bonus offer and partial refund from our noisy stateroom aboard the Serenade of the Seas in April. How couldn’t we take the opportunity for cruise travel before these credits expired?! Wouldn’t you SetSail? We were able to reserve Stateroom Cabin: 104, Deck: 9 which is my favorite ocean view room! Get familiar with Allure of the Seas with our photo tour.
If you’ve never been on a cruise and wonder what’s there to do on a ship, here’s a glimpse of what there’s all to do aboard a Royal Caribbean Cruise. We boarded an 11-night Southern Caribbean Cruise from April 9 to April 20 and every day we were given a newsletter of activities and things to do on the ship. They call it the “Cruise Compass”. Learn more about the Headliners and Entertainment while on this cruise.
Need a reason to take a cruise? How about Free Entertainment everyday of your trip?! You’re given their Cruise Compass newsletter on a daily basis with a variety of activities for that particular day. Activities include: Live Bands, Karaoke, Piano Bars, challenges at the Sports Deck like dodge-ball and free throw tournaments. Here I wanted to highlight what was scheduled at the Tropical Theatre.
Tomorrow we set sail aboard Royal Caribbean’s Serenade of the Seas for an 11-night Southern Caribbean Cruise. The best way to feel refreshed for the start of a cruise is to arrive a day or more before the cruise. No need to stress or fret about missing a flight, missing a connecting flight, lost luggage, or any other reasons that may delay travel to the port. We’ve tried those cheap budget park n’ rides and actually parking at the cruise port, but I think this was the best deal for cruise parking we’ve ever experienced.
We had just returned from the Carnival Conquest on a 7 Day Exotic Western Caribbean Cruise and saw a great cruise deal by Norwegian (NCL) for Monday Apr.7 to Thursday Apr.17, 2014 with all new ports to explore: Saint Thomas, USVI – Roseau, Dominica – Bridgetown, Barbados – Saint Lucia – Philipsburg, Saint Maarten. Oh boy! Check out all there was to do aboard the Norwegian Sun…
