what an adventure!
Destination: Western Caribbean
Ports of call: Grand Cayman: We have been here before and had done Stingray City. We decided to do it again because we wanted our daughter to experience it. We were not disappointed. We had a blast. We went to the Turtle Farm and then to Hell and got to go to the Rum Factory, and then to Stingray city. Perfect weather and a great time.
Cozumel: We did the Horseback riding through Mayan ruins. I was very disappointed with this. I don't know if what we saw was really ruins or if they just placed rock statues out in the woods. The horses seemed taken care of, and my daughter, who is a horse rider at home, loved this excursion. I could have done without it.
Belize: We choose to go to the private beach. OMG was it beautiful. There were Starfish right off the beach and the sand was so white. It was peaceful and not crowded. The offered a massage for 20.00 for 20 min and both my husband and daughter took advantage of this. They had food( pricey ) and a small area shops. No one bothered you to buy or eat. Perfect! Isle of Roatan: We did the Seaspis. This was located on other side of island. The people of Honduras are scary drivers. We did get there and were not disappointed. The beach was beautiful. The seaspis were very uncomfortable to lie on, but boy you could sea all kinds of coral and fish. Our guide was friendly and after we figured out you could sit up on the seaspi, it was much better. After the trip, you were able to wonder around. They had a canteena and a roped off area where they had sharks and hugh sea turtles. You could leave at anytime. Boy that trip back was even scarier then getting there. We also found out our Waiter, Joel, was from Honduras and was eager to answer any questions about his country.
Days at sea were lazy and filled with food and sun. The pools were busy, but you could just wait a couple of minutes and then they would empty.
Leaving the ship the next day was easy. We put out our luggage the night before. Found it next day easily enough. We had a late flight so decided to go to the Tampa Aquarium. We had a lot of fun. It is small, but well kept. Stored our luggage right at the end of the port authority building. They charge a small fee but it is worth it. We had a great time. Less
