travel: cruising the caribbean

all this cold winter air and snow on the ground is putting me into vacation mode… and 2014 is going to be a leaner year for vacation for me, which while a little sad, isn’t the end of the world. I’m sure 2015 will make up for it.
the grand plan for 2014 has two guaranteed trips, and I know this because flights are bought already… I’ll be cruising the eastern caribbean in a few months and heading back to austin in October.

in May I’m off to Miami to board the MSC Divina and spending 7 nights on a work vacation. meaning it’s technically work, with days spent in conference rooms, but still with free time (including in port) and getting to enjoy a balcony cabin with my work roomie.

I’m really excited to see some new places, including Puerto Rico!

I’ve been to the Bahamas before, but to Nassau, so these are all new stops for me… including the port of Miami.
I watched a doc called Cocaine Cowboys the other day and it was centered in Miami and showed some crazy stuff… but I’ve heard Miami is a pretty rad city, so I’m excited to spend a night there before my cruise.
my flight won’t get me in until late so most of my Miami time will be in the morning, so if anyone’s been and has a breakfast/morning wander suggestion, I’m staying at the Hyatt Regency and would love to hear it.

    What a great way to spend a “work trip”. I have heard great things about the MSC Divina. A friend of mine has cruised on her since she arrived in Miami. She has wrote a few pieces about the ship on her blog, Travel Shop Girl. They might be of interest to you.
    I have personally had a stop on Great Stirrup Cay and wrote a couple posts about it. I was the highlight of my cruise. Since it is a private island actually owned by Norwegian Cruise Line, it ends up to be a beach day. The food there is wonderful and the Mai Tais…well what can I say, they are great. We rented a cabana for the day and it was awesome.
    Hope you have a great cruise!
