|View from the Carnival Freedom last year|
However, with the instability of Jamaica, we are not doing anything except shopping in our little port area. For the Grand Caymans Island it is 7 Mile Beach and in Cozumel, a boat ride to a private beach. The boat we will be on is bigger and it's the Carnival Breeze.
So why am I telling you this? Because this is the first family vacation that we are taking WITHOUT other relatives. Most of our vacations are with my husband's family and we love it. But this time, it's just the three of us and we are all excited.
Some people ask why we cruise during Spring Break? Sure, it's more expensive but with school and work, it's really the only time that we can do it. I'm not a believer in pulling out our child for a vacation during the school year. Yes, I'm that mean mom.
So be good while I'm gone. It was so nice to completely unplug from anything associated with my phone or computer last year. The blogs will be silent during that time, too. Email will be a mess but I can handle that. I'm already getting my reading materials together, too. I know have 3 e-readers. Two Nooks and 1 Kindle Fire.
