Sailing the Cabo Sea 🚀 🌊

If you have never gone sailing before, it is such a wonderful experience. Before sailing ⛡️, I would avoid it because I figured that I would get sea sick πŸ€’. Here is a voyage that I took along the Sea of Cortez in Cabo San Lucas:

Prior to this voyage, I took my first cruise with Carnival. I packed Dramamine, a wristband (that helps avoid seasickness) and I packed the little circle bandaid type strips that are designed to go behind your ear. To my surprise, I did not get seasick but felt pretty sick because I spent money on all of these products that are designed to help prevent seasickness πŸ˜‚.

Still, it is always better to be safe rather than sorry. I had a wonderful time on both the Carnival and Cabo voyage. As you can tell from the video, the weather was very beautiful and the waves were not as choppy. Truly one of the best voyages that I have been on because of the weather and the wonderful tour guide that we had on that day.

In case you are interested in booking this same tour, it can be found on the Trip Advisor site or app. It is the Cabo San Lucas Glass Bottom Boat tour and it contains a couple of hours on the sea, tour of a glass blowing factory, lunch, tequila tasting and a tour around the city of San Jose del Cabo. You will be so glad that you booked this tour – prepare to have loads of fun 🀩!

Cruise Cabin Ocean Views πŸ˜†!

If you have never seen the view of the ocean from inside a cabin room, prepare to be amazed:

Isn’t it just spectacular 🀩? When I saw this when I took my first cruise, I was truly amazed. Seeing the waves in the vast ocean, just blew my mind. Almost could not sleep seeing this amazing sight.

Most times when I have seen video from a cruise 🚒, I have rarely seen what the cabin rooms look like or the ocean view from within the cabin. I am glad to at least check one of these items off of the list for all of you that will view the video. I will have to look through my video archive to see if I have room pictures πŸ˜‚.

The views that we see on vacation, oftentimes gets burned into our mind and this particular trip provided no exception. I hope that you enjoy the video and that you have a great week ahead!

Dance Vibes for a TuesdayπŸ•ΊπŸΎπŸ’ƒ!

Nothing like a fun trip! 😊 If it contains dancing, you have a party πŸŽŠπŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰. Here is a dance party for the ages – enjoy 😊:

This was one of the best times that I had on a cruise. The video above captures the dance party which was a part of the sail away celebration. I am assuming other cruise lines have pre-sail festivities also. It was a great send off to say the least. πŸ˜‚

In the video, it looks very weird to have so many people concentrated in one place. This was the way we use to interact on a cruise prior to the pandemic 😷. Hoping that these times come back soon.

Hope that you enjoy the video and happy sailing to you all in the future.

Fun at Laguna Cozumel πŸ˜Žβ˜€οΈ

Happy New Week to you😎. The weekend never seems to be long enough πŸ˜‚ Travel always take you away from the regular, ordinary and the mundane πŸ‘. Should your travel plans take you to Cozumel, I highly suggest visiting the Chankanaab Beach πŸ– Park. One of the beauties that this park has to offer is the Laguna Cozumel, which as you can see from the video, is just amazing :

You can take a wonderful walk around this Laguna and feel as as if you have discovered paradise. Cannot beat the beautiful views that this Laguna contains. You may ask the question, “is swimming allowed?”. Well, it is not allowed, there are a number of beaches that are located in Chankanaab where you could swim, snorkel etc.

In order to do all of the activities included at this park, you really need about 2 days. There is so much to do and so little time to do it. Once you are there, time does not seem to stand still. On the contrary, it goes by so fast. There is a Dolphin Discovery, sea lion show. several beaches, tequila tasting, great restaurants, shopping etc. Almost too good to be true.

As you can see from the video above, it is just phenomenal. This was an excursion that I booked on my Carnival Cruise voyage to the Western Caribbean. With cruises, you only have a few hours on land before it is time to resume the sea voyage. I am glad that I was able to make this time count!

All Aboard 🚒 – Fun Awaits!

Getting outdoors clears the heart and the mind. Nothing like the wonderful fresh air that is felt when you leave even the comforts of your home and venture out . If you have followed my blog, you realize that any day at sea, is happiness to me πŸ˜ƒ. One of those such sea adventures happened on the high seas of Costa Maya, Mexico and it is captured here:

The ocean was just a perfect shade of blue on that day😎. I still look back in awe when I see this video. It is not only very beautiful but you also see just how massive cruise ships are πŸ˜‚. It is a wonder how they are able to stay on top of the water. From the sheer weight, they should sink but of course they design the ships a certain way to ensure that they stay above the water.

My fear of sailing on all of this massive water, kept me from wanting to cruise at all for so many years. I look back in regret now because I could have been to so many more places πŸ˜‚ had I not been afraid to take a cruise. You cannot get these type of views staying on land, you have to be willing to venture out from the land.

If fear is holding you back, you are in good company- others, including myself, have been there. When it is safe and you are comfortable, try it out for the first time and see if you like it. Who knows, you could be hooked like I am and start seeing the world differently- from aboard a cruise shipπŸ˜ƒ 🚒!

Once Upon a Cruise 🚒

Once upon a cruise, I had the time of my life πŸ˜ƒ! There was a lot of singing and most certainly a lot of dancing like the video captured here:

Doesn’t this look like fun? 😜 The video gives you some idea of the overall atmosphere on this Carnival – Western Caribbean cruise. The place where all of this fun takes place is called the Lido Deck. That is where dance parties, exercising and other entertaining group activities take place. This place can accommodate the largest number of guests at the same time.

If you have seen other blog posts of mine, you have undoubtedly seen a few concerts from the cruise ships. The concerts happen on the Lido Deck. As you might imagine, there are extra protocols being followed in the pandemic world that we live in now, but rest assured, this type of entertainment continues on, albeit in a limited capacity.

Once you are comfortable with taking a cruise, I encourage you to do so. I am sure that the industry would love to have new and experienced cruisers, as their industry has lost billions of dollars as a result of the pandemic.

Hello October and TGIF🀩!

Hello October😊 and Happy Friday to all. We are quickly rushing into the last quarter of the year and before you know it, 2022 will be here. In order to celebrate this, I want to share the party vibes (Pre-Covid) that I vividly remember from my last Carnival Cruise: Hope that you enjoy 😊!

These were the good old days for sure and I definitely miss them. The good news is that these times will return, we will experience them again! There are seasons in life that are experienced. They seem forever at the time but they come and go.

This particular video was recorded during dinner time on the cruise. This dance party happens on every Carnival Cruise. Most definitely, it looks different nowadays but it is fun nonetheless. The kids dancing πŸ’ƒ πŸ•ΊπŸΎin the video is what makes this video most enjoyable! I smile every time I view it.

Let the good times rollπŸ˜ƒ Happy Friday and Happy October πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

HumpDay Dance πŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸΎVibesπŸ˜€

There is absolutely nothing like seeing kids dancing and having a great time.😊 I captured just a moment when I was on a Carnival Cruise sailing to the Western Caribbean. If you could use a smile on today, feel free to check this out:

It certainly put a big smile on my face 😁! Hope it did for you as well. If you like this type of fun, Carnival specializes in these dance sessions during dinner time. There is usually at least one for every night. So if dancing is your thing, get ready to dance into the night.

Hard to believe that this much fun can be a part of the dinner entertainment but it most certainly is. I remember the first time that i experienced this, I was totally shocked. The waiters and waitresses suddenly stop what they are doing ,once the music starts, and then breaks into a well choreographed dance routine πŸ˜‚! That gets everyone else dancing and before long, the restaurant breaks into a dance party. πŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸΎ

Hope that you get to experience one of these dance parties in the near future. Until then, take a look at other blog post videos that I have captured on this site.

Carnival Cruise into a new weekπŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸ•ΊπŸΎ

Have you ever seen a cruise ship? If you have never been on a cruise or it has been a while, take a look at this video of the Port of Cozumel:

As you can see, they are massive πŸ˜‚! It makes you seriously wonder, how are they able to float on the water? It is an amazing phenomenon. Especially when you take into account the weight of the ship and the weight of hundreds of people that are on the ship.

Carnival Cruises does a phenomenal of making the cruise experience so enjoyable. I was, for along time, a person that did not want to take a cruise. I seriously could not fathom why anyone would want to do it. I could not see how it could be fun in any way.

Boy was I was an experience like none other. After the first cruise, I was hooked and I have been cruising ever since🀩! Truly the most fun that you can have on a vacation is taking a cruise. There is something for everyone and you are left with a lifetime of memories.

Flashback: Carnival Cruise Vibes 🚒 πŸπŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸ˜ŽπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ

If you have never been on a cruise, please do yourself a favor, post pandemic, and go! 😊if you are possibly thinking that it might not be fun, take a look at this video for a sneak preview:

I used to be a person that thought that cruises were not fun, until I finally made the leap of faith and tried it. It was so much fun that I could not wait to go back.

Now is certainly not the time to go, but cruises will be making a comeback to a port near you very soon 😎
