  • Carnival Pride, Tampa, 2017 : This nine-day cruise was on the 2100 passenger Carnival Pride. It began and ended in Tampa, Florida

  • Cottrell Key, Key West, FL 2017 : After a leisurely day at sea, we visited Key West, Florida. Having visited here many times in the past, a catamaran sail and snorkeling excursion is always in order.

  • Half Moon Cay, 2017 : After another day at sea, we visited Carnival-owned Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas. Once again, snorkeling was the excursion of choice.

  • Grand Turk, 2017 : Not due into Grand Turk until 11 am, we were entertained by an impressive collection of animals sculpted from towels and blankets and arrayed around the pool on the Lido deck. I had planned another snorkeling excursion at Grand Turk, but it was canceled because it could not be filled to the promoters satisfaction.

  • Amber Cove, 2017 : This was the first time I had visited Amber Cove on the north shore of the Dominican Republic. Again, I had intended to go snorkeling, but it, too, was cancelled. This time because of unfavorable sea conditions.

  • Sea Days, 2017 : In addition to the four stops at Key West, Half Moon Cay, Grand Turk, and Amber Cove, we spent four days at sea. When not attending the various on-board events, I spent some time taking both slow-motion and time-lapse videos of the passing scene.
