Week 7 BZ adventure

January 31 - February 7

 What a week, another Norwegian cruise, this time from Tampa to the Western Caribbean.  Here is a photo of us with the 2 ships we sailed this trip.  Both were parked in Mexico for the day and we were able to snap a quick shot.  Both ships were amazing, similar entities but different experiences.  One was huge and all Europeans and the other smaller with many North Americans.  We will cruise again for sure as we loved the service, food, people, shows, casino, and island hopping.

Sunday - Superbowl on the ship with 2500 of our crazy new friends.  Lennie's team got killed but we had a great time.  It is so nice to have cruised before so we knew what to do and where to go.  Unfortunately, the ship was late arriving and the check it was a nightmare but we didn't care.

Monday - on the water for the day heading south to Central America so hit the pool and casino.  We went to the shows again this cruise; comedy by Second City, Tim Kaminski, Newlywed game, etc. etc.

Tuesday - landed in Roatan, Honduras for a day in the sun and para sailing. The beach was beautiful and there were fish everywhere! We got a great deal for $25 for a tour and day at the beach.  They had security, showers, and a bar.

Wednesday - landed in Belize City, Belize where we had to tender (take a boat from the ship to the shore) where we just sat in the sun and drank beer at a Canadian owned bar called the Thirsty Pirate

Thursday - landed in Costa Maya, Mexico for a day on the beach and a lot of snorkeling - we need to practice for our trip to Australia. We caught a cab and for $25 bucks got a day at the beach, open bar, snorkel equipment and lunch - good deal.

Friday - landed in Cozumel, Mexico for a day at Paradise Bay beach resort and we went banana boating. We had met some wonderful ladies from New York earlier in the week who had been to Paradise Bay before so we just caught a cab with them and had a riot.

Saturday - back on the ship for a day of fun and pool side.

Sunday - back to Tampa for the long drive home to London and wait for Thursday the 13th for our flight to Africa.
