Taste Of Our
Cruise Vacation Stories

I have shared that on our first cruise vacation - a Western Caribbean itinerary aboard Carnival Sensation - we were surprised by the mandatory cruise gratuity at the end.

Yet, we enjoyed every bit of it and did not want to leave the ship upon its return to the Tampa Port.

We vowed that from then on that we would only take 7-night Caribbean cruises.

While the next two cruises were seven (7) days long - one an Eastern Caribbean cruise, and the other a Western Caribbean cruise, we have not really kept our vow.

To date, we have taken two 4 day Caribbean cruise, and several 5-night Western Caribbean cruises.

We have quite a few cruise stories to share and I have done so over some of these webpages.

Fortunately for my family, each Caribbean cruise sailing was free from unpleasant events.

Except for losing our digital camera in St. Thomas, USVI, and being disappointed with the dilapidated condition of the roads in Belize City, Belize and Samana, Dominican Republic, we have enjoyed every bit our cruise experiences with six separate Caribbean cruise lines, aboard many different cruise liners.

Time To Share Your
Caribbean Cruise Story

What about your Cruise Story? 

Unfortunately for some people, their cruise experiences have not been pleasant.

We have a friend who was aboard a Western Caribbean cruise during Hurricane Katrina. There is another friend who took her first inclusive Caribbean cruise two years ago, but not really excited about the experience. 

Now, Let Us Hear Your Cruise Story. 

I invite you to share: 

1. Caribbean Cruise Story - First Cruise 

If you have taken just one cruise, please share it with the rest of us. Were you as dazzled as we were? Did you get hooked like we did? Will you go back? 

2. Caribbean Cruise Story - Repeat Cruisers 

Have you discovered how great an inclusive Caribbean cruise is as a family vacation and now that is all your family does?

That's pretty much our story... No other vacation comes close to our Caribbean cruise getaways! 

3. Caribbean Cruise Story - Preparing for Your First Cruise 

Ah, so you are about to experience your first Caribbean cruise. Tell us where you are going - Eastern Caribbean, Western Caribbean, the Bahamas, or on a Disney cruise vacation

How did your family make the decision to take a Caribbean cruise vacation? 

4. Caribbean Cruise Story - Dreaming of a Caribbean Cruise! 

The dreamer! Well, you are having a great dream, my friend! Tell us what may be hindering you from taking a cruise now and ask us any questions you may have about Caribbean cruises.
