Portside – Maui

There is so much to see in Lahaina, you really don’t need to pay for an excursion. Once off the ship you can explore the picturesque town, visit the marina and the banyan tree, take surfing lessons, or lay on the beach.

What to do when visiting Cozumel

Norwegian Epic

First Impressions Taut with expectancy, we boarded Norwegian Epic.  The boarding process was quick and efficient even with 4,500 guests.  We walked up the gangway, eagerly anticipating the magnificence of an Epic atrium.  As we boarded, we were immediately herded up the stairs to the buffet.  But where was the “Wow”?  Every ship I have […]

Portside – Curacao

Curacao is such a beautiful island with so many things to see and do, we can’t wait to visit again next year on our cruise. This Dutch Antillean island has national parks, the capital city of Willemstad with its pastel-hued architecture, beautiful beaches, and one of the friendliest cultures I have experienced in the Caribbean.

I remember sitting on the bus during the 40 min or so drive thinking it wasn’t very pretty, not […]

Portside – Cabo San Lucas

I was really looking forward to our two days in Cabo San Lucas. I’d heard so many good things about it. When we had booked our cruise on Carnival Splendor, the original schedule was one day in Cabo and one in Mazatlan, plus a day in Puerto Vallarta, but due to violence and lack of […]

Portside – Roatan, Honduras

I cannot wait to go back to this island – it is absolutely gorgeous! We took an excursion to Gumbalimba Preservation Park because I wanted to visit the spider monkey preserve. The tour took to the park by bus although you can also visit by pirate ship. The approximately 2-hr guided tour took us through […]

Carnival Cruise – Puerto Rico 7 day to Southern Caribbean (Part 1)

Puerto Rico   A day and a half spent in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico gave us time to explore the town and forts, but I would definitely like to go back and visit the rainforest and beaches around the rest of the island. The town was gorgeous, beautiful weather, and safe to walk around […]
