Meet the Anthem of the Seas! (Bahamas Cruise 1/4)

Posted December 20, 2019 in Around the World, Real World // 2 Comments

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 […]

‘Ello loves! A quick smol post today just to let you know that I’m off and away on the glorious Anthem of the Seas, on yet another cruise to the Caribbean!  American Thanksgiving is close upon us and rather than participate in the family festivities, my husband and I decided back in January that … the Caribbean would be nice.  For Thanksgiving. We love our family but we are very very excited to be heading to the Bahamas for the first time and we are so grateful to be able to take this trip after the damage caused by Hurricane […]

Adventures at Rhode Island Comic Con 2019

Hello everyone! A couple of years ago, I posted about my experience at Rhode Island Comic Con.  The TL;DR of that experience was that my feet hurt a lot, it was super crowded, and I didn’t enjoy it as much as I wanted to.  Of course, the flip side was that it’s such a cool experience and after my experience at BookCon earlier this year, I had been dancing around with the idea of trying the Con again. Long story short, a friend convinced me that a group of us should go et voila!  We ended up with a three day […]

The final leg of our Caribbean cruise adventure landed the Carnival Horizon at the port of Cozumel.  My husband was looking forward to the Cozumel stop, because he’d been there before.  The night before, he animatedly told me, “Make sure your camera is ready!  Cozumel is a beautiful port!”  It had been about ten years since he had last been to Cozumel, and he was excited to see it again. But, we never went to Cozumel, although the ship docked there.  Instead, we boarded a water taxi that took us across to Playa de Carmen. Playa de Carmen was still […]

Grand Cayman (Caribbean Cruise 3/4)

Posted April 6, 2019 in Real World // 0 Comments

Over the last couple Saturdays I’ve discussed a little about our latest cruise adventure to the Caribbean.  Last week, I shared Jamaica, where my husband I went zip lining, river tubing, and waterfall jumping.  The week before I introduced you to our ship, the Carnival Horizon. Today, I’m going to talk a little bit about port #2 – Grand Cayman. The Cayman Islands were first discovered in about the 17th century – and in this case, I do mean discovered as there didn’t appear to be previous indigenous inhabitants prior to settlers.  Originally claimed by pirates, deserters, and the shipwrecked, the […]
