We just got back from our Cruise vacations . We had wonderful time and it proved out to be a great decision to take Norwegian cruise line once again . Below is a recap for you all from start till end .
Our trip started from Fort Lauderdale where we stayed for 3 days . It was a great and a scenic place. During the 3 days we went to South Beach , Miami , market place , water park , took city tours etc. After our 3 days were over ,we went to the port in Miami where we were supposed to board the cruise , the Norwegian Getaway. It is an amazing ship and we took this cruise for the second time as the kids loved it the last time we went. The ship has great facilities , a ropes course area , a zip line ,swimming pools ,jacuzzis , lavish restaurants , great shows etc. The main reason for choosing this cruise again was the amazing ports it took us to.
The first port was Roatan, Honduras where we had a chance to interact with Cappuccino face monkeys , sloths ,macaws ,badgers and other exotic animals plus amazing zip line experience, they have beautiful beaches too which is a perfect spot for snorkelling and scuba activities . The next port was Harvest Caye, Belize where we visited a private island and had a great experience , beautiful beach and an outstanding swimming pool , undoubtedly by far the best pool we have ever seen . The third port was Costa Maya which is in Mexico and over there we visited the Mayan Ruins , very scenic area with beautiful beaches . The last port was Cozumel , Mexico where we took a private tour of the island first then rented a buggy and then went to snorkel at a beach. The marine life was breathtaking and the corals were beautiful. Soon ,our 7 day trip of the cruise ended which aggrieved us all as we enjoyed a lot there . We had a great time on the ship watching all breathtaking shows , dinning experiences and parties etc. kids loved water slides and we also spent time by the pool and in the jacuzzi almost every day . What a great experience we had !!
The last leg of our journey was Manhattan , New York and it was our third visit in the past 4 years but still we enjoyed thoroughly . We went to Central Park , Bronx Zoo , a National Geographic adventure called the Ocean Odyssey, the Ripley Believe it or Not museum and had a memorable time. We also went to Times Square (almost every day ) and took the Staten Island ferry too . For shopping we went to the Macy’s and Jersey Gardens Mall and both were really good . The 18 days of our trip were soon over and due to the blast we had ,we didn’t realise that the days had passed so quickly .
Sharing some pictures of the trip with you all……
