If you are a foodie . . .

Cagney’s Steakhouse is a wonderful place to have dinner on a NCL cruise, this one is on the Getaway. Cagney’s is a signature restaurant that is dimly lit and discerning affair, marked by dark woods and neutral tones. By using one of our meal credits, we were able to dine on starters, sides, and desserts […]

A Maze . . . Of Odds and Ends

This was a wonderful wood carving in front of the Havana Cigar store. Along the path was a coconut water cart, in case you need a quick drink. The shore line of the island. The sunlight reflecting on the water waves made it sparkle. As we left, we discovered the shopping area was designed as […]

The last time we were in Belize, we had tendered to the port, which was your usual cruise ship experience. There was nothing usual about this beautiful cruise port. It is owned exclusively by […]

Iguanas and Plants

Carving of a large iguana side by side with a smaller iguana is huge, it’s about 5′ high at the head of the iguana and 10′ long from head to tail of the larger iguana. Iguanas are a common sight throughout the Caribbean. This […]

Sitting On The Balcony

Before we got off the ship to visit the shops, we spent some time on the balconies. Fred had his magic tool to open the dividers between our cabins. This allowed us to have room for all four of us to see and chat with each other. We watched some divers, some men standing in […]

Island Merch

The cruise ship terminal at Port of Roatan is called “Town Center” because it is located in Coxen Hole’s town center. The port sits on 6.5 acres and is the capital of Roatan. As soon you step onto the pier, you see lots of shops. There are stands with local souvenirs, gifts, food and drinks. […]
