About CelticCruise

I was born in Texas. My dad was in the Air Force so I have lived in several different places. I now live in Georgia. When on a cruise I love sightseeing in the different ports or like to go snorkeling. My two favorite things in life are cruising & Celtic Woman concerts. When I am at home, I like reading and watching soccer & football. I also like trying new kinds of foods. One thing I like about cruises is the wide variety of international type foods.

Carnival Dream

May 2016 - Carnival Dream to Caribbean - Western

Wonderful Cruise

It was one of the best cruises I have ever been on. The Dream was kept very clean. The dining room staff was great. Good food.

 

The only disappointment was that they cut the port stay in Cozumel by two hours for some reason so they did not run the mainland shore excursions. I still enjoyed the Mayan ruins at San Gervaiso. They were smaller than the ones at Tulum, but still worth seeing.

 

Belize for me was the best stop of the tour. Xunantunch Mayan ruins are spectacular. The tallest building is 130 feet high. Because of my fear of heights, I couldn't make myself climb more than halfway up, but still got a great view of the surrounding area.

 

On Isla Roatan, we took an island & glass-bottom boat tour. It was very interesting to see the coral reef & sea life. We didn't see any super-huge fish, but an interesting variety. One of the stops was at a cameo factory. It was some really detailed artwork.

CelticCruise's Tips

Philipsburg, St. Maarten - If you like aviation, take a taxi at the end of the pier & go out to Maho Beach. It was $ 9 a person one way. It is a great place to go to a beach & watch airplanes at the same time. Plus there are some bars & restaurants if you get tired of watching planes. The Sunset Bar & Macho Taco are both good
Belize City, Belize - I have been to both the Mayan ruins at Xunantunch & Altun Ha. Xunantunch does involve a lot more walking than Altun Ha, The Altun Ha & River Wallace boat tour is really nice. Once the tour boat gets going, you do get a bit of relief from the heat. Belize is definitely very hot & humid in May.
New Orleans, Louisiana - We drove in the night before the cruise, so we didn't have a lot of time to sightsee. I did go to Café Du Monde & tried the beignets. They are very good. If you want to avoid the crowds, go to the one in Kenner, near the airport.
Cozumel, Mexico - We went to the small Mayan ruins at San Gervaiso. Very interesting to see. If you get out of the city, most of the island has been left undeveloped. If your cruise stops long enough to take a mainland tour, the Mayan city of Tulum is a lot bigger & more to see than San Gervaiso.
