We were told when we got off of our bus that we would have a different bus and driver on the way back and we did. This bus was newer and the driver was accompanied by another person in the same uniform.
We pulled into the first of three locks at the Pacific end of the canal where two line handlers employed by the canal joined our ship to manage the bow and stern lines as the water level in the lock dropped.
We arrived in ColÃ³n, Panama pretty early but our tour of the Panama Canal didn\’t begin until 8:30 when we were to meet our bus on the pier. We climbed onto the large air-conditioned bus with 40 other
We had another day at sea after Colombia and we took it easy… really easy. We checked email then spent the day reading books (writing this awesome content for you guys) and taking naps. The great part
As the sun began to set we went out on the balcony to watch the city lights come on across the bay. The main part of the city is very impressive from a distance and probably has some nicer areas that we
We pulled into the port area where we all hopped out of the cab and paid the driver. We were immediately surrounded by security asking us to get back in the cab, we needed to drive further. We pulled up
As we sat on the bench we noticed some workers removing some fake trees with yellow plastic leaves and little flowers with lights in them We think they were probably Christmas decorations for the entrance
As we headed into the Old CIty we decided to split from Aiofe and Lee and meet back in 2 hours to share a cab back to the ship. We walked through a few small shops full of junk and decided that shopping
We didn\’t arrive in CartageÃ±a, Colombia until noon so we spent the morning checking email and trying to find something on the internet that would tell us what we should do in CartageÃ±a. The internet
We pulled into Aruba around 7:00 am and were looking forward to getting to the beach early. The only question was which beach. There are three main beaches in Aruba that most cruisers visit. Palm Beach,
We woke up fairly late on our second sea day and decided to read some more on our balcony. It was another sea day and we were both enjoying our books. After lunch we decided it was time to check email
After dinner I had a stomach ache/headache combination so I only wanted to lie down. I wasn\’t sure if it was from over eating or from a drink that I had earlier but I was in no shape to go dancing. We
The reason we chose this cruise was because we were able to book an aft room which looks out of the rear of the ship and has a larger balcony. (roughly 12\’X12\’) We decided to spend some time watching
We woke up early and not just because the room was moving with the waves but because we had a huge breakfast buffet waiting for us. It was nearly endless, there is no way you could go hungry at this buffet
We woke up at 5:30 am to finish packing and get ready for our four hour drive to Miami where our ship was waiting. Goblin has little interest in moving at all at 5:xx am and I am the same way. We both
Almost a year ago we booked a cruise on the Jewel of the Seas. Teresa, our cruise agent, sent us a list of cruises and deals she had found and out of the few that she told us about we chose this one because
On our way out of Jacksonville we stopped at a yogurt shop and Duke and Goblin got their own plain yogurt.
They dug in and would only stop when the brain freeze set in. You could see the pain in their
We caught I-75 in Albany and headed South, in all of the years I can remember driving this stretch of highway I can\’t remember a single time that it wasn\’t under construction. Either the State of Georgia
We all woke up hungry and ready to get moving. The showers at the campground were all under construction so no showers for us. We also discovered our tent was covered in sugar ants, they were inside and
We arrived at the campground around 7:45 pm so the store was closed. We registered at the drop box and headed through the broken gate toward the campground. As we drove in we saw a field of RVs all looking
