::Cruise 2010::Key West/Cozumel, Mexico

I recommend a cruise to anyone. Even if you don't like to travel, in my opinion, a cruise is something everyone can enjoy. It is great for family reunions and girlfriend get-a-ways. I would even consider talking a 3-day cruise solo.
Cousin Dylice and my mom saw it advertised in our local newspaper and enlisted me as their guide. We took a bus from SC to Miami with about 50 other people from my hometown.

Overall, the trip was exactly what I needed. A week without emailing, texting, responsibilities or obligations. My only goal was to make sure my golden girls had a remarkable experience. There is something humbling and serene about being completely surrounded by the ocean. You have to acknowledge that there is something bigger than yourself. I used my time wisely and took full advantage of the steam room, gym, health seminars and private deck.

Carnival Imagination superseded my expectations. Everything was clean and operated properly. In my opinion, it was actually better than The Dream Resort in DR. Here are a few of MY pros and cons:

Cost. Very affordable.
Ship was tidy
Variety of activities. Even when ship was docked
A library
Each staff member had their home country listed on their name tag.
Only in Key West from 7AM- 2PM.
Only 1 pool and it was very small.
Gym wasn't 24 hours.
We had to catch a cab to the beach in Cozumel.

Here is a short video. Thanks for reading.

    Hey Meredith I am passing on this award to you. Please see my blog post for the rules. Enjoy.

  3. My husband and I are considering going on a cruise, I'm just not sure like, what "brands" are reputable, and which ones are known for being not so good. I guess I'm just worries I'll get ripped off. But, I know lots of people who have had great experiences with cruises. Thanks for sharing your pro/con list though, definitely things to look for. :)

    I hope you love birds have fun! It takes a special person to teach Special Edcaution. My mom taught it for 33years. Hats off to you. Thanks for reading my blog.

    I went on this exact cruise for my birthday last year! I was super bummed by the rain and the time limit in Cozumel, BUT it was a nice quick get-a-way for me. Carnival Imagination was cool, the club was so fun EVERY night! The one pool thing blows, but we just played over where the kids were and went down the water slides to stay cool!

    I really enjoyed this video. Your Mom is so cool! I like her comment about knowing she couldn't drink all that water! Hahaaa, it does overwhelm you when you see that much water before you :D

    Really nice. Glad you had a good time. I've never done a cruise but it has been my dream since childhood.
