Our Thanksgiving Day at Coco Cay (Bahamas Cruise 4/4)

Our Thanksgiving Day at Coco Cay (Bahamas Cruise 4/4)

Posted January 17, 2020 in Around the World, Real World // 4 Comments

Royal Caribbean advertises their private island in the Bahamas with the very catchy phrase “Perfect Day at Coco Cay”.  It’s almost perfect… except “cay” is pronounced “key” and not “kay”.  So close!  Regardless, Coco Cay is Royal Caribbean’s answer to things like Disney’s Castaway Cay, and if you’re a beach person, a cruise line’s private island is a really cool opportunity to lay back on the beach and just enjoy the day. My husband and I are not beach people, but HEY!  It was Thanksgiving, and a private island was a way better offer than a dramatic family dinner.  Even if […]

Matt and I are working our way through the Caribbean this year, and this fall’s trip was entirely focused on the Bahamas.  I am grateful we were able to visit in November – I know whenever there’s a natural disaster, a lot of tourists back out or the touring companies change their itineraries, which is really sad because that’s the time when the countries need the industry the most. And yes, I hear how privileged that sounds.  I know that tourists, and cruise ships in particular, do a lot of damage to their ports.  Despite my choice method of transportation, […]

There are a lot of different cruise ships out there on a lot of different cruise lines. Matt and I are by no means professional cruisers (but, full disclosure, full time cruising is my retirement plan) but we love being on board and have been testing out different ships as more and more cruise lines begin to said out of New York, Boston, and today… Bayonne, New Jersey! Our latest venture to the Bahamas was the first time I had personally cruised with Royal Caribbean.  I’ve done tours and reviews on a few other ships with other lines – the […]

Good morning my loves! Today marks the first in a series of four about my adventures on the Carnival Horizon and my trip into the Caribbean! This was actually my first time in the Caribbean – my husband and I went to Bermuda for our honeymoon, but Bermuda is actually in the Atlantic ocean, so this is officially the furthest south I’ve ever been! As some of you may know, I tend to pre-schedule my posts, so let me tell you about where I am as I’m writing this. It’s 6:25am and we’re in the middle of the Caribbean en […]

Transatlantic Cruise: Seven Days At Sea (2/8)

Posted May 12, 2018 in Around the World, Real World // 11 Comments

Seven total days at sea is a very long time. Last week, I told y’all a bit about cruising and the ship I was on.  Other than the seasickness, I really enjoyed the seven days at sea.  I was about to work a little on my Unnamed Fantasy Bounty Hunter Story, which I was really excited about.  It’s pretty clear to me already that Melyssa, the heroine, is not going to behave the way I want her to.  This story is back into familiar fantasy ground for me, and I’m really excited about it.  I love writing stories about girls […]
