Just a small town girl going wherever the wind takes me. I love to travel to new places and learn new cultures.

Cruise tips

Cozumel, Mexico

I really like Cozumel because there is so much to do. I'm sure once I see it all I will be bored. This time we went to Xenses. It was very interesting. There was a part where we walk in the darkness by ourselves with no shoes. We walk through different landscapes, like the rainforest, desert, river, etc. I enjoyed this, my son...not so much. Then there was a city where gravity will defy you and the water runs up. It was so cool. After that we go down a water slide, fly on a glider, lazy river, sludge, rain and sauna. I did not like the sludge. It was interesting.

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

I did not care for the walking tour. The island is beautiful. The island buffet is good. The Dragon Coaster is awesome and has a breathtaking view. I loved this island and will do more next time.

Port Canaveral, Florida

We went to the Kennedy Space Center with airport transfer. I want to go back on my own. There were a few things that we were told we didn't have time for, but in fact we would have and was listed on the excursion description. One being the simulation, it lasts 30 minutes. we were in that part of the museum for over an hour. We could have done it, I was not aware it was in that area until too late, but guide already told us no... Also, there was a video in the Saturn area, butwe went in another way and was told the stop was for shopping and eating. I would rather do everything then sit in a gift shop for over an hour. The entire tour was great. The center is so interesting.

Falmouth, Jamaica

We did the island tour and rum tasting. The tour was Ok. Reggae river and Fern Gully were beautiful. My son really liked the river. The food was great. We had lobster and roasted chicken with polenta, hush puppy like thing, greens and rum runner. The rum tasting was OK, I'm not much of a drinker.

Oasis of the Seas

Oasis of the Seas

Deck 7 aft, you can watch the aqua show if it gets full. Deck 5 aft, there is a nice sitting area if you want to look over the ocean in a more quiet setting. It is the running track, but there are chairs out back so you can sit and relax if you ever want some quiet.

Enchantment of the Seas

Enchantment of the Seas

Enchantment has a great crew, very friendly. A relaxing cruise with a fun night life and lots to do.

Nassau, Bahamas

We did the Essential Nassau tour. We was a lot of fun. The rum cakes were delicious. The queen staircase was beautiful. Wonderful tour guide. Had a great time.

Miami, Florida

I personally don't like Miami. No excursions, just dropping of rental and boarding the ship.

Key West, Florida

I love Key West and Permits Key Lime Pie. I did not enjoy the hop on hop off conch train. Our guide was horrible. Told us we had 25 minutes in one place, but tried to leave in 3 while my son was still in bathroom. I recommend old town trollies.

Miami, Florida

we didn't see much of Miami. We flew in and headed straight for the ship. The port of Miami was nice, friendly people and they got us on the ship quickly.

Cococay (Cruise Line's Private Island)

Cococay is beautiful. I cannot wait to go back. we had so much fun relaxing on the hammocks. we enjoyed a beach buffet. We also snorkeled and saw tropical fish, a plane and part of a ship. It was a great time.

Nassau, Bahamas

In Nassau, we did a local tour. Our guide was friendly, funny and informative. He taught us about the culture, brought us to the locals, Atlantis, Queen's Staircase and to see celebrity homes. It was a fun tour.

Key West, Florida

I love Key West. It is a beautiful town. We did the conch train. We saw the town, the Southernmost Point and Cuba in the distance. The only downfall was not being able to hop-on hop-off.

Key West, Florida

I love Key West. It is a beautiful town. This is my second visiting. We did not do any excursions. we walked up and down Duvall Street, went to Ripley's Believe It or Not and visited the Truman gardens.

Miami, Florida

The people at the port were awesome. They kept reassuring us we would get my sisters missing bag, that the airport lost, very quickly. They made sure she was OK. The Port of Miami gave us a wonderful experience.

Tampa, Florida

We stayed the night before our cruise in a local hotel to visit some family that lived about an hour away. The port was quick and easy to find and onto the ship. The porters met us at the car. He was very kind and our took our bags. Excellent experience. At the end of the cruise, we toured the Ameri

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

We went to a beach resort, through the Shore Excursions on board. The beach resort had unlimited drinks. It also had free kayaking and WiFi. There was a swim up bar. Where we sat, there was a lot of sea-weed. We walked up the beach and there were clearer spots. It was beautiful and relaxing. I think

Cozumel, Mexico

Cozumel was really nice. We did a shore excursion called Legacy of the Maya: Ruins and Chocolate Tasting that is an ancient city and a few other places around the city. I enjoyed the ruins. I am a huge history buff and love all of it. After we left the ruins, we went to a coral formation that looks

Empress is a small ship, but the comedian, magician and show was fun.

Majesty is for the laid back cruiser looking to relax

Majesty is a small ship. Good for a first cruise, and relaxation.

Cozumel, Mexico

Cozumel was real nice. We took an excursion that took us to the ruins of a city. We then went to a coral formation on the beach. After we learned how to make chocolate. We were able to create our own and try some chocolate drinks. I had a chocolate pina colada, my mother had a chocolate margarita and my son had a virgin chocolate pina colada. Very delicious! Our guide was funny and knowledgeable (as far as I know). Great excursion.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

Costa Maya was beautiful. We did the beach with unlimited drinks. Our waitress was on top of it. Coming by in just enough time to get new drinks, without seeming overly pushy or missing. I asked her about the food and she said it was Americanized. We still ordered some chicken tacos, 3 for $5. They were good. The water was clear. There was some seaweed, but not too bad. We were able to Kayak for no additional charge. We had a great time.

Tampa, Florida

We had family near by so visited them before the cruise. After the cruise, we went to the American Victory ship museum that is right next to the cruise port. We had a few hours before our train and thought this would have been a nice museum to visit. I am a history buff and have been to white a few battle ships, submarines and aircraft carriers in the past. I enjoyed the museum, but there wasn't as much there as I'm used to. It made me a bit disappointed.

Nassau, Bahamas

I am reviewing my 2006 trip. Nassau was very beautiful. We took a tour that took us to Atlantis, the Queen's staircase and then to see how the people lived. He taught us about the people and their customs. Cannot wait until I return in May with my entire famiy.

Cococay (Cruise Line's Private Island)

Cococay was absolutely beautiful. This review is for 2016. We snorkled and saw many bright, colorful and beautiful fish, stingrays, jelly fish and turtles. We also saw a sunken plane and ship. It was all awesome except for me getting stung by a jelly fish. I cannot wait to go back!!!

Key West, Florida

I LOVE KEY WEST!!! It is so beautiful. This review is for my trip in 2006. We did a conch train tour and our guide taught us a lot about Key West. We saw a lot of landmarks, but this was not a hop on hop off. I will be doing a hop on off on during my May trip and will be able to review that then.

Miami, Florida

Miami is a beautiful place, but I do not care much about it. The best part about Miami was the hotel we stayed in. The staff was very nice and after the horror ride it took for us to get there, we really appreciated then getting us our room ready asap and breakfast while we waited. As for public transportation, if you opted for that, it was horrible. Beaches were beautiful. This was 2006. I will update again in May with this year's trip.
