Good Ol' Fashion Fun

4 days of sailing and entertainment! Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines (RCCL)has a reputation for outstanding entertainment! High dive shows, CATS productions, Ice skating shows, Mamma Mia are just a few things you can expect from Royal Caribbean. When I found my perfect 4-day cruise to Ketchikan I knew I was in for a treat, but really had no expectations. I figured all the top-notch entertainment would be on the bigger and newer ships. Our ship was “Radiance of the Seas”, an older (20 years) smaller ship in the RCCL fleet. True, a smaller ship does not have the fancier theatre with all the bells ...

Learning in our backyard!

A visit to Vancouver Island, I learned about culture, wildlife and my family! Last summer I went to Port McNeil on Vancouver Island in BC Canada.

First she decided to do this whole camping thing in the first place, all alone with four boys...

My trip to Club Med

Teenager Marcus gives us his review of Club Med Cancun. Club Med Cancun was an experience that I will never forget. My days were filled with fun, joy, laughter and lots of guacamole. Before the trip, I would look up videos of the resort. When I would click "search" countless videos of sailing, windsurfing, food and snorkeling videos would all appear, each one showcasing the brilliant beauty of this carefully crafted resort. The videos made the resort seem too good to be true. Upon arrival, I quickly realized that they weren't too good to be true, and that in fact, the resort had surpassed my ...

We both had an exhaustive wish list when it came to what we hoped to do: She wanted a safari, I hoped to sip my way through Cape Winelands, and even though our ask was large (and sometimes ever-changing), our Destination Experts customized it all without so much as a sigh. We saw things we couldn...
