The ride on the tender was fun. My beautiful bride and I watched as the ship became small and distant. A beautiful site she is. The dark, Duke blue, water surrounding her as the sun lit on her starboard side. Soon we could hear the sound of the reggae music coming from port over the drone of the tender’s two outboard engines. .After 10 minutes we were on the dock, through the security gate and walking through the shops. Shopping in Belize is like most of the other ports. There were lots of coffee cups, tee shirts, shot glasses, and average everyday people trying to make a living off the tourist. The one thing that stands out is the presence of thousands of fake purses and designer items. My beautiful bride being knowledgeable of fine purses ... read more

Geo: 18.8335, -67.8735 Today we were at sea. We all planned on sleeping in but, the sun now comes up on our side of the ship so it was pretty bright and I was awake at 6:30. I decided to run down to the laundry and see if I could get some wash in. There were a few washers about to finish so I waited. By the time the laundry was done it was 9:30 and I thought it was time to get to get the girls up so that Raymond could clean our room. It took them some time to get ready but we made it to the Promenade Lounge by 10:15 for the family craft. We made masks. After the craft we went to Shutters to see if we could find the photo of ... read more

Just got back from sailing in paradise! What a great trip, we left out of Brooklyn, NY on the Caribbean Princess. It was a HUGE ship with way too many people, but everything was great, the food, the atmosphere, the entertainment! My sister and I buddied up with some crew members from Bulgaria, Macedonia, Australia, Canada, and England, everyone was hilarious and let us in on the fun all over the ship. We stopped at 4 ports, San Juan Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Tortola, and Turks and Caicos Islands. Gorgeous places, San Juan was full of history and culture. We ate at a real Mom & Pops type restaurant with delicious Puerto Rican food and homemade sangria :) In St. Thomas we I took a ferry to the Island of St. John and did an ... read more

We are currently on route to Aruba and an announcement has just come over the public address system that Travelscope Holidays went into Administration yesterday. Currently we have no more information as to what will happen for the rest of this cruise and understand that the ship's owners are in discussion with ABTA regarding the completion of this trip and the next world cruise. You may see us sooner than expected!! This may also explain why we stayed so long in the Panama Canal yesterday.... read more
