Things to Do Onboard Carnival Miracle

December 2, 2018 |

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. Read More

Cruise Vacation Port Excursion: Jet Ski Tour in Grand Cayman

November 27, 2018 |

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). Read More

13.7 Mile Brompton Bike Ride around Flatwoods Wilderness Park (Tampa, FL)

November 1, 2018 |

Cooler weather has begun in Central Florida (high 70°Fs – 80°Fs), so outdoor exploration is easier to do. We dusted off our Brompton folding bikes. In search for a trail that our thin bike tires can easily maneuver, we found a trail surfaced in asphalt – Flatwoods Wilderness Park: a paved loop that provides a wooded environment with abundant wildlife (such as armadillo, turtles, hawks, and deer to name a few)… with an extension which connects Bruce B. Downs Boulevard for a few extra miles to add the ride. Read More

Halloween Horror Nights – HHN28 – Universal Studios (Orlando, Florida)

October 24, 2018 |

I love zombies, vampires, werewolves, sci-fi and so Halloween season is fun… especially, living near a theme park known for movie-making. Without traffic, Universal Studios is about a 45 minute to 1 hour drive. The cool, breeze evening 71°F made for a comfortable event. Here’s the haunted houses we enjoyed this year and why it pays to buy an Express Pass.

Historic & Culinary “Must-Eat” Tastings Walking Tour (Nassau, Bahamas)

September 24, 2018 |

Our first port stop on our 7-night Royal Caribbean Caribbean cruise, was to Nassau. Originally, I was supposed to jump on this food tour with mom on her 80th birthday cruise. Hurricane Irma changed our plans. Thoughtfully, Murray Sweeting gave us a credit & allowed us to reschedule – even 1yr later! Read More
