Achieving Dreams – Cruise

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 I went on a week long cruise in the early part of April. It was really nice and it was a learning experience since it was my first cruise. Went to Cozumel, Belize, Mahogany Bay, and Grand Cayman Islands. I really enjoyed my time in almost all the places except Belize. If you cruise to Belize, DO AN EXCURSION! Don’t try to explore by yourself. It’s a poor country and they will bombard you with services. Taxis, hair, nail polish, directions – you name it, they will try to sell it to you. You can’t take two steps without being approached.

Cozumel had a really nice area for shopping but if you want the best chance of doing something fun or exploring, especially if you’re in to history, do an excursion. Mahogany Bay by far was my favorite. Beautiful beach, comfy chairs, expensive bars and other activities available. Excursion is optional but you’ll get a discount if you buy one. I loved the beaches in Grand Cayman, so much so that I forgot to take a picture. Oh well! Again, you don’t need to get an excursion but be prepared to get a taxi to get to a beach.

So, I am happy to say that I can now strike off four things off my list: 27, 28, 36, and 66!
