Beautiful view of the middle of no where. It's been about a week since my vacation ended and I am finally writing my last post about my Carnival Cruise. Then it's back to posting about Houston fare! So this final post will focus on all of the food we had in the main dining room. For traditional cruising, you eat your dinner in the main dining room. It is generally a three course meal with several menu options. Best of all you can order as many of the options as you would like. The dining room is the best [...]

The girls and our personalized beach bags! that my aunt purchased from the Knot. They were great for carrying your stuff around the boat. My previous posts focused on what we did OFF the ship during our vacation. My next few posts will focus on the food and fun on the cruise ship! For those who have not cruised before, cruise companies employ a bevy of things to keep you entertained on the ship. Most of these things are a means to squeeze more of your money away from you like the liquor and shore excursions. For the most [...]
Since I have been blogging, it seems like EVERY week I am alerted to some National Food Day. My first question was, what greedy person created these days? From my wikipedia browsing research, a wide variety of people have the "authority" to select a day for their preferred food. To my surprise, Presidents of our great country are behind a few for these days. For National Ice Cream Day, Ronald Reagan made a proclamation where he labels Ice Cream nutritious and wholesome therefore worthy adoration on the third Sunday of July. Oh, I agree Mr. President. For other days, some random organization [...]
This is part two of what feels like will be fifty posts about my Carnival Cruise from last week. I am posting out of order, but the first stop our cruise made was to Grand Cayman! All I knew about this island was that it was the place to go to hide your money oh and they have pretty beaches! I traveled in a group of seventeen, but we often split up into smaller groups once at port. For Grand Cayman, myself and three of my cousins went on a Land and Sea Tour of the island. We were sold [...]
I recently returned from a week long Carnival Cruise to the Caribbean! I went with 16 members of my family and overall it was a really good time! We got off to a rocky start though, with Hurricane Danny in the Atlantic Ocean. Then ironically, my name sake Hurricane Erika, almost complicated our return home. Due to Danny, Carnival changed our itinerary the day before the cruise, sending the planner in me into a tailspin! I spent months researching our previous locations, but now I only had hours to find what to do and see in these places. It forced [...]
If you have been around BGWB for sometime you may recall my family cruise some years back or my group trip to Aruba. Welp we did it again, this time with a group of twenty-two people to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. It was a week vacation on an all inclusive resort. Lots of fun and life long memories. Check out my Punta Cana Recap below! Punta Cana When I travel out of the country one of my goals is try to get an authentic experience of the culture. I look for historical sites, popular food or drink and [...]
The third stop on our cruise was Belize City, Belize!!! For this port, majority of the crew signed up to go tubing through Belizean caves. I went tubing last summer in Texas and really enjoyed it so I was up for tubing in Belize. Although I was on vacation, I had to be up at seven so many days to make 8am excursions! By 8am we were on a 20 minute tender ride to the shore. I guess the Belizean shore is shallow so the boat anchored pretty far out. Once on shore, we met with our tour guides [...]
