Norwegian Cruise Line Inaugural Sailing of the Encore

As I am an invited guest of Norwegian Cruise Line's Inaugural Sailing to the Caribbean in November, you will be the first to hear all about what this exciting ship has to offer.  This video is of The Haven Suites which offers your own ship within a ship. It's first class of the way! 

Where I Have Been Recently

Majestic Beaches

Costa Rica has so much to offer from the beauty and serenity of Playa Manuel Antonio to the majesty of Arenal Volcano. There is also something for the active adventurer with options for hiking, white water rafting, ATV & canopy tours. This video is from our hiking trip where there were  monkeys, sloths, butterflies, etc... there is wildlife at every turn. Plus, a beach that was both secluded, with so few people it felt like your private beach.

Living the Suite Life

Top Notch Entertainment & Cuisine

Celebrity Cruise Line's Edge offers absolutely beautifully appointed, spacious suites as you can see from my video below. The decor throughout the ship is both interesting and modern.The shows, particularly in the Eden, were a bit different and may in be too performance art for some.The food was absolutely terrific, even in the buffet area. Top notch food and service. Our rear-facing balcony was perfect as it was quite a large cabin & spacious balcony.  It was fun to wake up in port and see all of the other ships come in.

On Royal Caribbean's Oasis Class ships, they feature has top notch entertainment. They have an outdoor theater where shows are performed in water. Other ships have ice rinks and other unique venues not only for entertainment but for team building activities. Harmony of the Seas even has an escape room where groups figure out the best way to get out of the room.  Along with all of this they have Jamie Oliver's Italian Restaurant and it is superb! Plus, an indoor garden area called Central Park.
