Apr 13, 2011 - Cabo san Lucas

Another sea day after Acapulco then on to our last Port of Call Cabo San Lucas. Cabo is a very popular touristy area at the tip of the Baja Peninsular. It’s a very pretty place known mostly for the beaches and water sports. We did a boat trip out to the rock formations at Land’s End which was quite spectacular – beautiful beaches for walking if you are staying in the area, followed by a short scenic drive to a hotel viewpoint. Even thought it was only about 9am we felt we needed the free Corona to quench our thirst. We walked part way back...

Panama Canal Cruise

Apr 12, 2011 - Cruise Ship Carnival Splendor

Its day three on the Carnival Splendor and one thing I can tell you from the journey so far is that the cruise is to busy to relax. There are that many things to do and it does not stop, the kids are just as busy with the day starting at 10am and scheduled activities until 12pm every day. We have been to the vegas show and the comedy club( the adults one) the kids are going tomorrow night to the family show. We have had our elegant dining night ( the red carpet had nothing on the frocks going in for dinner)The service is top rate. Paul and...

Mar 23, 2011 - Cabo San Lucas

Explore and pick up Todd at airport. His plane was 2 hours late so arr at 5:30 and we had a great reunion. Went to a mall for dinner, ha! Sign of the times in Cabo...the local places were way too expensive! Drive back in the dark brought to mind our unfortunate rollover several years before since the road between Cabo and T.S. is under construction and there are very few lines and little warning as to when the road makes a diversion! Todd drove luckily since his night vision is much better. Arrival at the beach we interupted some kids who...

Feb 15, 2011 - Land's End, Cabo San Lucas

We pulled out a bit before the rest of the caravan today to stop and top off our fuel. Diesel is still running in the mid $2.80’s here so we top off often. The general rule is to run on the top half of the tank and, with all the mountain driving, the fuel mileage is not great. Foxy liked this arrangement because she got to get out at the PEMEX for a walk and she got to get out again where we waited for the rest of the caravan to catch up. Foxy likes frequent stops, especially on these winding roads with lots of vibradores and topes. We had...

Dec 16, 2010 - Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

We are still unable to load our Mexican pictures, so will have to wait until we get off the ship (Dec 18th), so no Brad, what went on in Mexico is probably already on UTube! Lol We woke up to a beautiful sunrise, and scooted on down to the Theatre Room, where we hurdled in like cattle, waiting for the tender to take us to shore. We signed up for the Rhino Tour (no, not rhinosaurus tour silly!!) After going ashore, we marched on over to a waiting bus, and drove an hour north of Cabo San Lucas. There, you had the choice of horse back riding...

Nov 15, 2010 - Day 1 Baja Coast

Hi Everyone well we landed in La yesterday morning we were all exhasusted, but my cousin Stella was the flight manager on the plane and looked after us really well, so that made it a little nicer. As soon as we cleared customs we got on a shuttle to San Pedro (about 40mins out of LA) and boarded the cruise ship at 1pm. Our rooms are great and really big compared to P&O cruises. We have three cabins together on the promenade deck, our rooms have a floor to ceiling bay window that looks out over the shopping promenade on the floor below....

Sep 25, 2010 - Cabo San Lucas

9/26/10 Sunday Some of these days are so laid back, there doesn’t seem to be a lot to write about. We really have no communication with the outside world as far as cell phones and internets goes. They are very expensive. We will buy 100 minutes of internet time to start with and do what we have to do communication wise. Bob and I are sitting in the beautiful Internet Café now on board the ship, typing our journal thoughts on the word processor, then we’ll download several at a time. We both are loving this cruise. The ship is so clean and...

Sep 24, 2010 - Dinner with Officer and Criminals

9/24/10 Friday Today was a Sea Day, so we woke up and had coffee in our room. Bob went to breakfast, but I relish the fact that I don’t have to get up and dressed and rush out the door anymore. I later met Bob on the pool deck and we saw Donna and Larry, our dinner mates from last evening, so we sat with them and talked for a while. I sat by the pool this afternoon and even got sunburned. It felt so good being in the sun after freezing in California. Bob played in a golf chip contest and came in third out of about 50 contestants. I played...

May 30, 2010 - Ready or Not...

After days of waiting with our crew and dear friend, Bruce, for a weather window, we are leaving. It's almost 10:00 a.m. and about 400 nautical to Turtle Bay till we stop. We are hoping the forecasts are mostly right and somewhat wrong. We were to leave last night and thought better of it. Today is flat calm here and we just can't stand the thought of waiting for days longer so as we look out to sea it is flat calm. So say a prayer or at least think good thoughts as we head north up the coast. Will be in touch again once we hit Ensenada....

Apr 4, 2010 - Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Delightful looking place, but in this case another worthless marketeering stop. We have 6 hours in port starting at 7 am on Easter Sunday and we have to tender ashore. What will be open? Ship kick-back jewelry stores, a few bars, a few independent vendors, and the flea market. No time to book any of the many independent tour offerings in the Marina. We took the tender and walked downtown for Sally to collect the "freebies" the jewelry stores offer to get you in the door. Alas, would have been a great town to spend a...

Panama Canal Cruise

Feb 3, 2010 - Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas, or the Cape of St. Luke, is situated at the southern end of the Baja California Peninsula. We sailed in about 9:30 in the morning. We had an early breakfast so we’d be ready to go for our catamaran tour. As we watched the approach to Land’s End, where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortes, Joe spotted a whale..too far away for pictures but we were glad to see they are here because we have a whale watching tour booked for Puerto Vallarta later in the voyage. Because there’s no pier here, the captain staged the ship out a...

Jan 19, 2010 - Coast of Baja to Maz

We have had extraordinarily beautiful weather. Very little pure sailing but lots of motor sailing with water temps as high as 87 degrees and air temps to the mid 80’s in the shade. Lots of whales, turtles, dolphin and sea life have made themselves known to us and we appreciate every show they give. Feels lonely out here. Only a few pleasure vessels and lots of panga fishermen with the usual cargo and cruise ships. The weather has been quite settled so we decided to really run south and take advantage of calm passages. We’ve had 4 overnight...
