We booked our 11 night Southern Caribbean cruise with Celebrity back in July 2016 via http://www.crucon.com during one of their big sales. Celebrity Cruises and Crucon.com had an amazing deal for this cruise onboard the Celebrity Equinox because it was originally supposed to sail around Europe.

Husband and I decided that we didn’t want to travel too far from the ship so both agreed to go… Continue reading Celebrity Equinox – In love with Valley Church Beach, Antigua

The tour was called the “Tour of Virgin Gorda Baths” which was 4.5 hours long, and advertised as strenuous but the photos I found on the internet made it look appealing enough for me just do the… Continue reading Celebrity Equinox – Our tour of Virgin Gorda Baths – British Virgin Islands
St Thomas has two cruise ports. Celebrity usually docks at Havensight port however we docked at Crown Bay port the day we arrived. Husband and I decided not to book any cruise shore excursions and to play our luck with catching taxis around to different beaches. When we docked, we walked off the ship to… Continue reading DIY Beach Hopping on St. Thomas – Coki Beach, Sapphire Beach & Magens Bay Beach
