20 Tips for new cruisers

I recently went on my sixth cruise. I feel like that’s enough cruises to be considered a fairly experienced cruiser.  However, I am certainly no expert.  For example, my wife has been on at least ten more cruises than me (so, it should be no surprise she got me into cruising).  Here I will have...

If you could go anywhere today, where would you go?

Sometimes I find myself daydreaming about going away. That especially happens this time of year, because I live just south of Buffalo, New York.

Labadee isn’t my favorite port, but it’s pretty close.  Labadee is one of Royal Caribbean’s two private resort areas (the other is Coco Cay, a private island in the Bahamas).  This was my second time at...

Cozumel and the Nachi Cocom Beach Club

We went on a cruise to the Western Caribbean in February. I thought I’d write about two of the ports we visited.  This time I’m going to share our experience from Cozumel, Mexico and later I’ll write about our enjoyable time in Labadee, Haiti. We got off our Royal Caribbean ship and weaved our way... Continue Reading →
