14 Night Taiwan, Vietnam, Japan Cruise (Celebrity Millennium)

In July 2019, we booked our Celebrity “14-night Taiwan, Vietnam, Japan” cruise onboard the Celebrity Millennium. We liked the itinerary and since I had not been to any of these countries, I was happy to visit them via ship to get a ‘taster’. I tacked on a trip to Sydney and Brisbane after Hong Kong.… Continue reading 14 Night Taiwan, Vietnam, Japan Cruise (Celebrity Millennium)

15 Night Argentina & Chile Cruise (Celebrity Infinity)

In December 2017, we sailed around South America on board Celebrity Cruise's Infinity ship. The cruise spanned over Christmas and New Years which we thought could be quite fun. We flew the red-eye from JFK to Buenos Aires on December 22, via American Airlines, without much drama. Due to the flight costs and unpredictable New… Continue reading 15 Night Argentina & Chile Cruise (Celebrity Infinity)

Celebrity Equinox – 11 night Southern Caribbean (May 15-26)

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. So, when Celebrity canceled the Europe route, they had to… Continue reading Celebrity Equinox – 11 night Southern Caribbean (May 15-26)

Sailing around St Lucia (with “No Links” tour)

We docked at Castries in St Lucia with the plan to get a tour from a local operator so we’d see parts of the island. We had decided to look for a tour with the Welsh couple we made friends with on board the ship. Once inside the terminal we had many options. Hmmm… that’s… Continue reading Sailing around St Lucia (with “No Links” tour)

Celebrity Equinox – Trekking around Barbados

We docked at Bridgetown, Barbados. The terminal was a bit more developed looking compared to the other ports we’d stopped at. The terminal featured a lot of little stores selling duty free items, souvenirs, cigarettes, ice-cream, and alcohol. The taxi and tour operators were available once we stepped out of the small shopping area. At… Continue reading Celebrity Equinox – Trekking around Barbados

Celebrity Equinox – In love with Valley Church Beach, Antigua

We arrived at St John’s, Antigua without much of a plan. The Fodor’s guide suggested that if we didn’t want to travel too far to a beach to go to Dickenson Bay (10-minute taxi ride). 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
