1) Cabo San Lucas. I will have the pleasure of visiting Secrets Marquis Los Cabos for a 4 night stay starting July 24th. One of the things travelers should be aware of when visiting the Pacific Ocean side of Mexico is that the water and beaches are NOT like those on the Caribbean side of Mexico. Currents are much stronger in the Pacific and swimming can be tricky and is, in some cases, not recommended. But one of the advantages that Cabo offers is some of the most amazing scenery and sunsets. Unlike the Cancun area, the terrain around Cabo offers mountains and hills, large swaying palms and a drier climate. I will be taking LOTS of pictures so stay tuned.
2) Eastern Caribbean Cruise. Looking forward to our 7 night cruise aboard Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas. This will be our second sailing aboard the Freedom and our 3rd to the Eastern Caribbean with stops at Royal Caribbean's Coco Cay, St Thomas and St Maarten. Our cruise departs Port Canaveral on September 23rd. We have chosen to stay in a PR category stateroom which is an inside stateroom overlooking the Royal Promenade (i.e. mall-type area down the center of the ship). So far...no specific excursions planned. A first though for this trip will be our visit to Royal Caribbean's private island. I look forward to comparing it to NCL's, Princess Cruise Line's and also Disney's.
3) Walt Disney World. This will be our second visit within this calendar year. We arrive on December 8th and will be staying 7 nights at Disney's Boardwalk Inn. Resorts previously stayed at include Disney's Polynesian Resort, The Swan (of the Swan and Dolphin), Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and Disney's Pop Century Resort. The only advance dining reservation that we have planned is breakfast at Akershus in Epcot's World Showcase (Norway). Looking forward again to being able to see Disney during the holidays. Again...LOTS of pictures will be taken.
This is going to make for an exciting second half of 2012.
