Brrr! Time to go to the warm Caribbean!

Yes it's that time of year  to get out of the cold and visit a Caribbean island (or more). If you are going on a cruise you will need to know which of the three types of Caribbean cruises you want. The Western Caribbean consists of Cozumel, Grand Cayman and perhaps Jamaica or Belize.
The Eastern Caribbean consists of St, Thomas and St. Martin or St. Maarten (one side of the island is French and the other side is Dutch).
The Southern Caribbean has several islands including St. Thomas, St. Martin, Barbados, Antigua, St. Kitts, Dominica, Grenada, Curacao, Aruba. The 7 day cruises depart from San Juan, P.R. but there are some 10 day cruises departing from Florida.
Last winter I took a short 5 day cruise on Royal Caribbean's ship, Liberty of the Seas with 11 other people. We left from Ft. Lauderdale and spent a day in Belize and a day in Cozumel.

Looking down the promenade on our ship is like being on a street. There are shops and even some parades on the street. Some of the rooms overlook this street.

We took a tour of the city.

Went to the Mayan ruins.

Having been to Cozumel three times we just shopped this time. Had to get our Mexican vanilla to take home.  All in all this was a great ship and a great short cruise.
