Our second port of call was Cozumel, Mexico. We love the beach and decided we wanted nothing more than to relax at the beach again. We waited until we were in port and took a taxi to a…Read More


Transportation to the Port - Miami

Written by catronma on 07 Apr, 2007

When coming in from, or leaving Ft. Lauderdale or West Palm Airport, don't pay the outrageous taxi or cruise line van fee. If you have the time use the Tri Rail and metro rail. The Tri Rail has a website but an all day ticket…Read More

This is a private island off the coast of the Dominican Republic. The island is very small, so there isn't much to do, but it was an incredibly relaxing time. The boat had a beach barbecue, which was very good. We laid on the beach…Read More

Tortola

Written by Depster on 25 Apr, 2006
