Victor Bodden Tours: Zip & Dip

While cruises to new destinations are wonderful and exciting, ports of call and shore excursions can be a bit overwhelming with so many options to choose from! There are many highlights to see and do in Roatan, Honduras.  After reviewing the choices we found this excursion option through Victor Bodden Tours, Zip & Dip that would let us experience three activities in one!   When doing research on the location, zip lining through the jungles and animal sanctuaries on the island where you can cuddle up with a sloth seemed to be the highest recommendations.  This excursion started at a location that combined both of these amazing experiences, plus a stop at a beautiful beach to enjoy the crystal clear blue waters of the island!  We were picked up with our group outside the port area.  The meeting location was easy to find and we only waited a few minutes before we boarded our small van and headed off.   When we arrived, our group was checked in and everyone was given wristbands of the

Roatan Brews and Island Views Excursion Review

Enjoy drinking beer in a tropical setting? Well do I have the perfect excursion for you! Roatan Brews and Island Views offers guests a chance to tour a local brewery and partake in a tasting flight, all in the captivating scenery of Honduras. Built on a 60 acre parcel of land in the Palmetto Valley of Roatan, the Roatan Island Brewing Company offers in-depth tours of how they create their tropical ales.  We booked this excursion through Royal Caribbean Cruise Line on our recent Western Caribbean cruise itinerary. It should be fairly obvious since this excursion is a brewery tour but it's worth mentioning that the excursion requires a minimum 21 years of age for all guests hoping to participate. The excursion was advertised as mild activity level with minimal amounts of walking and standing. They recommended we wear comfortable walking shoes but I'm happy to report that the activity level was less than mild. The excursion length was 3 hours and 15 minutes, which I thought was a

Cruising with a Baby: A Complete Guide

You took a baby on a cruise!? Yep, and I'd do it again knowing what I know now. So, say goodbye to months of research - Everything you need to know is here!! One of the biggest challenges of traveling with a baby is planning what you need to bring. I wanted to share what worked for us, and hopefully help others who are planning their cruise! Remember, babies can only cruise after their 6-month birthday on sailings from the U.S. If you are going transatlantic, or have more than three days out at sea, they must be 12 months old by the first day of your cruise. Pre-Cruise   We flew to the cruise port, and I couldn’t bring all the food and snacks I needed, so I placed an Instacart order for pick up near the port. I chose Publix in Cocoa Beach which is a few miles from Port Canaveral. I placed the order a few days before we left home, and set the pickup time to 11:00 a.m. I ordered formula, a box of diapers, swim diapers, bottle brush, dish soap, baby food, and baby snacks. I also broug
