Beautiful Port of Mahogany Bay on Isla Roatan, Honduras

Beautiful Port of Mahogany Bay on Isla Roatan, Honduras

We had never been to Honduras so we’re very excited about this port. One word I can use to describe Mahogany Bay on Isla Roatan… lush. Everything as far as you can see is rich, thick green foliage on rolling hills and surrounded by the beautiful blue water of the Caribbean. It truly felt like we had arrived in paradise. Ethan made us laugh as he compared this island to Jurassic Park… so we were waiting for dinosaurs to come…

Great Read for Your Next Cruise: ‘The Woman in Cabin 10’

Do you enjoy reading a good book while on a cruise?  I do, so I am always looking for the next great read.  I am a lover of audiobooks, so I take my phone and earbuds to the very back of the ship and watch the tail the ship is making in the water and enjoy a good story.  So what about a story set on a cruise ship???  ‘The Woman in Cabin 10’ by Ruth Ware is a great…

What to do in Belize: Goff’s Caye & Snorkeling the Second Largest Barrier Reef

How many different boat rides can you take in one day???  Well in Belize… a lot!  This is a shallow port so you take a tender boat to shore and then hop on another boat to go out on your excursion.  We have a great day planned with a trip to Goff’s Caye.  We chose this because of the uniqueness of this teeny tiny island and the amazing snorkeling.  Belize has the second largest barrier reef in the world and…

CRUISE LIFE: CLUE: Murder Mystery on Carnival Dream

Having seen the press release when Carnival first released Clue: Murder Mystery on their ships, I was extremely excited to see this in person and play along! We were already in the theater as we wanted to see both shows that night and we held on to our front row seats. We were given a folder with the details of how the game is played and who the suspects are. Your job as a detective is to figure out where…

CRUISE LIFE: Relaxing Poolside & Fantastic Comedy/Magic Show on Carnival Dream

Sometimes you need to just sit back and relax… After an early rise and a full day in port in Cozumel this is exactly what we needed. What better way to relax than to take a shower to get all of the sand off of you – that sand sure does get in places it shouldn’t be in – grab a bite eat and sit in the shade by the pool and feel the cool Caribbean breeze blowing on your face. It…

CRUISE LIFE: Twister Speedboat & Isla Pasion – Carnival Dream Cruise

What gets you going in the mornings? A morning jog… a strong cup of coffee… well, how about a speedboat??? This is how we started our day in Cozumel! Our excursion was called Isla Pasion by Twister, which means you are going to a beautiful island by way of a speedboat. We met up with our group and laid eyes on our vessel… a bright yellow boat with rows of black seats. No windshield here, that would just get covered…

CRUISE LIFE: Arriving in Cozumel – Carnival Dream

CRUISE LIFE: Arriving in Cozumel – Carnival Dream

There is something very special about waking up early in the morning to walk outside on the top deck of a cruise ship and watch the sunrise! I will admit this was the first time I have ever done it as I am not a morning person. But on this morning Jason woke me up so we could experience this together. The Lido deck was quiet and peaceful as so many were still asleep.  We really soaked up the moment…

CRUISE LIFE: Motor City Show & Motown Showdown – Carnival Dream

CRUISE LIFE: Motor City Show & Motown Showdown – Carnival Dream

Who’s ready for a good show? One of my favorite things to do on a cruise, other than eating, is to watch the great shows in the theater!  Tonight is the Motor City show which features music from Motown!  The pre-show can be a ton of fun too!  The four male performers were dressed like bellhops and were walking around the theater interacting with the passengers and making everyone laugh.  Then they picked a few guys from the audience and…
