Carnival Cruise Dance πŸ’ƒ Party πŸŽŠπŸŽˆπŸŽ‰

No party quite like a Carnival Party because the Carnival Party don’t stop πŸ›‘! The sail away parties for Carnival Cruises are epicπŸ˜ƒ. There are so many videos of these parties online and the more you watch them, the more you want to be a part of them. Here is a video of one that I was able to be a part of:

This is just pure unadulterated fun 🀩! This is exactly what you can expect when sailing away on a Carnival Cruise. This particular video was captured prior to the pandemic 😷, so things may have changed quite a bit when you set sail. These were certainly great times and the good news is that the cruise ships are still sailing.

With the arrival of August, it is now time for back to school. If you have some time before the kids go back to school or if you don’t have kids but have some vacation time, I certainly encourage you to consider going on a cruise. The industry has taken a severe hit during the pandemic, so they are offering all sorts of deals right now.

I used to think that I could never be able to afford a cruise but the cruise lines are offering some of the best travel deals around. The advantage is that you see more exotic locations all at once instead of flying individually to each location. The downside of cruising is that you have a limited amount of time to see everything. So there are indeed trade offs but rest assured, anytime away from work, whether by sea or air, is time well spent πŸ˜‚!

Carnival Cruise Vibes🚒- Happy FridayπŸ˜ƒπŸ™ŒπŸ’―!

Carnival Cruise Line just has a way of making dreams come true. I have sailed them in the past and I always have been impressed with their commitment to customer service. I have always felt as if I was getting the best experience offered and consequently, I have enjoyed my experience cruising. Here is only a sample of what you can expect, when you choose fun 🀩:

When all is said and done, I would like to have cruised on not only Carnival, but also Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess etc. I guess you can say that I am a cruise addict. I must admit that I totally am πŸ˜‚. Admitting it is definitely a great first step πŸ˜ƒ.

Sure, taking an airplane to various destinations would get you there quicker but for so many times in life, it is more about the journey than the destination. The journey provides so many memories that will stay etched in your mind for years to come.

This particular video was taken while I was standing out on the Lido Deck, looking at the beautiful water πŸ’¦. I could remember this moment now as if it was yesterday. I did not have any idea at that time, of the many adventures that would take place in the upcoming days of my journey to the Western Caribbean. Feel free to check out this blog for adventures in Costa Maya, Belize and CozumelπŸ˜ƒβ€οΈ!

Fun at Sea – Sail Away VibesπŸŒ΄πŸ˜ƒ

Nothing quite like a party πŸŽ‰β€οΈβ€πŸ©ΉπŸ”₯! Amazing how having fun 🀩 never goes out of style πŸ˜‚. If anything, we want more and more opportunities to be able to enjoy and to celebrate πŸŽ‰. Truth is, that we spend so much time doing life that we rarely stop to smell the roses 🌹 and appreciate the life that we are living. I found a quote today that says, “Never be so busy making a living that you forget to make a life”.

Indeed, life has so much more to offer than the regular mundane life of making a living, paying bills, repeat. There has to be fun found somewhere in the equation of life. Going out and seeing the rest of the world is one way to incorporate fun but just lounging on the patio, meeting with friends for dinner, having a fun weekend etc. allows the mind and body to recharge. Here is an excellent fun time that I just shared to YouTube – I hope that you enjoy:

Fun times indeed – I still remember it like it was yesterdayπŸ˜ƒ! We had so much fun on that day that I did not want it to stop πŸ˜‚. Alas, it had to and we were on our way to Costa Maya! On this cruise, we would not only visit Costa Maya but Belize and Cozumel as well.

Hope that you enjoy the video and most importantly, stop πŸ›‘ to smell the roses 🌹 that you earned and deserveπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ!

TGIF – Let’s DanceπŸ’ƒ πŸ•ΊπŸΎ!

Friday is here – hooray to the end of the week!πŸ˜ƒ Hope that you had a great week so far and that you are having a Fantastic Friday. Something about Fridays that really gets you in the dancing mood! I am reminded of the last cruise 🚒 that I took, that had me in a dancing mood. Here is a snippet of that wonderful time:

Sort of gets you moving – I love that great song πŸŽ΅πŸ˜ƒ. We were on our way to the Western Caribbean and as you can tell, we were just a tad bit excited πŸ˜‚. Of course seeing the number of people all together, it goes without saying that these were pre-pandemic times. Sailing as I understand it, has resumed at ports. It is fully expected with the decline in Covid cases recently, that cruising will come back in a huge way.

This particular cruise took me to Costa Maya, Belize and lastly to Cozumel. My blog contains a number of videos from all of these places. Feel free to take a step through some of my previous posts to see great, original videos that you will not find anywhere else.

If you are traveling to either of the locations that I have listed above, you are sure to have an amazing time. When you are cruising to these different ports of call, you are given some hours (5 – 6) to take in the experience of the location and then it is time to get back on the ship 🚒 to cruise to another location. It is fun 🀩 and you are certainly left wanting even more time onshore.

Hope that you enjoyed the video above and that you will make your plans to travel sometime in the near future.

Belize Sights and Sounds 😎😎😻😻

Belize is such a beautiful place to visitπŸ˜ƒBy far, it is one of the best places that I have visited. Always a great feeling when you can get long time bucket list items checked off your list. Here is just a compilation of the sights and sounds of Belize:

Hopefully you enjoyed the video!πŸ˜ƒBelize was one of the stops while cruising along the Western Caribbean! Impressive trip all around especially the speed boat tour of the Belize River. If you ever go, please do the Belize River tour – you will be so glad you did!

I must admit, the Belize River tour isn’t always fast moving. In Belize πŸ‡§πŸ‡Ώ, there are spots along the river where you cannot go fast. While sailing along the river, you will see manatees, alligators 🐊, snakes 🐍 etc.

In addition to the tour, you can also visit the Belize Zoo, where you will see a lot of awesome animals. Thankfully this is part of the overall tour – which really adds to the value that this tour has!

Cruising to the Caribbean πŸš’πŸ˜ŽπŸπŸ–

Cruising to the Caribbean sounds so very good right now! So much to see and do and so many memories to be made. I went on a 5 day cruise to the Western Caribbean and I was just amazed. I was even amazed by the beautiful cruise ship 🚒 views also. Take a quick look for yourself:

Pretty cool, huh πŸ€”? I remember walking out on deck and seeing the beautiful views like it was only yesterday. Of course, during these pandemic days, things would look a lot different. Definitely not as many people all crowded in one place but still a lot of activities onboard nonetheless.

The area that you are viewing is called the Lido deck and it is where a lot of the fun happens on the ship, including the Sail Away adventures. Cannot beat fun times aboard a cruise 🚒 πŸ˜ƒ. The experience is so wonderful and the memories will last a lifetime.

Cruising is a beautiful experience and I encourage everyone to partake of the experience at least once to see if you will enjoy it. Who knows, it could be the first of many adventures πŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸ–!

All Aboard – Sail Away Party 🚒 πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰

If you have ever wondered about the type of entertainment that cruise ships have on board, look no further than this

I remember this experience as if it were just yesterday πŸ˜ƒ. So much fun and so much eager anticipation of sailing to the Western Caribbean to visit Costa Maya, Belize and Cozumel. I could hardly contain my excitement, just like kid, excitedly waiting for Christmas πŸŽ….

The video above is just a snippet of entertainment that we had on that day. Once you take a cruise, there is a myriad of things to do. Casinos are there, Broadway style performances also keep you entertained. Comedy shows are onboard along with miniature golf, basketball, swimming etc.

If you are wondering whether daycare and kid care facilities are there, the answer is yes πŸ™Œ. There are also adult only pools etc. if you prefer the all adult experiences. Food is there in absolute abundance: buffets, fine dining, fast food etc. it is almost like a airplane, hotel and restaurants all combined into one experience!

I will readily admit that I have not been cruising since the pandemic 😷 so I caution everyone to take all safety precautions to ensure that you get the most out of your experience. The video above is from pre-pandemic times so the experience would have changed since then. I am sure that the cruise lines will do all that is within their power to ensure a safe experience.

I look forward to sailing in the future and I encourage you all to cruise, especially if this is the first time or if you have cruised before. The experience is an excellent one and the memories will last a lifetime! πŸ˜ƒ

Dance πŸ’ƒ πŸ•ΊπŸΎParty on the High SeasπŸ˜ƒ

Nothing quite like a Carnival Cruise 🚒 Dance Party😁! No matter how many times I cruise on Carnival, the experience seems to get better and better. This particular one that I captured, will give you an idea of what I mean:

So incredibly fun 🀩 to experience this type of entertainment with the staff getting involved in it along with the cruise guests. I often wonder how long it takes to choreograph those dance moves πŸ˜‚. I would guess hours upon hours.

In any event, it was a fun time had by all. This was pre-pandemic which in my opinion, was the best time to have this type of experience. I am unsure how you accomplish something like this, in the midst of a pandemic 😷. Especially with so many people concentrated in one area.

As you can see from the video, kids of all ages are participating in the entertainment. Certainly the way things should be.😊 There is no doubt in my mind that these times will return. You can count on me to bring the sights and sounds to you. Who knows, I might even meet you there πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ!

24k Cruise Views from CarnivalπŸ€©πŸ™ŒπŸ˜Ž

Totally love cruise vibes and great music πŸ˜ƒ. Nothing else like it. I am reminded of good times and great vibes onboard a cruise to the Western Caribbean. Wanted to share these views, they were incredible:

This view is from the Lido Deck onboard the Carnival Cruise Ship🚒. Back in pre-pandemic times, this is what the atmosphere looked like. During the time we currently live in, it looks too crowded but certainly hard to believe that this was normal at one time.

To be completely honest, I would like to sail again when the times captured in the video return. No doubt, the industry is doing all that it can to keep people safe now, but pre-pandemic times, in my opinion, provided the most fun because you could interact with the most people.

Hopefully those times will return soon but in the meantime, there are other adventures to explore. Definitely encourage everyone to works, vacation and repeat, especially during the holidays. Does not matter where you go, just go πŸ˜‚. You owe it to yourself for all of the hard work during the course of the year!

Living on a Prayer πŸ™ πŸ˜€!

One of my favorite 80s songs is “Living on a Prayer”. It has a way of getting you going when you are stuck in neutral to start the day πŸ˜‚. Here is this great song live as it is performed on a cruise ship enroute to the USA from Cozumel:

This performance was electric and I was glad to be a part of it. Always helps in the enjoyment of it when one of your favorite songs is being performed! This 80s Party πŸŽ‰ will always be one of my favorite memories from the wonderful entertainment that I experienced onboard this Carnival Cruise.

As I have said before in previous posts, I definitely encourage you all to take at least one cruise 🚒 within your lifetime. You will not regret it, you will come back with a different perspective on travel. It certainly enlightens the travel experience when you visit various locations on a single voyage. These are destinations that you would have to visit separately on an airplane.

I hope that you enjoy the video – it was a wonderful experience πŸ˜€!
