Whether you are seeking to visit Mayan ruins or relax on the white sand beaches, there is something for everyone here.

  • Six Ways To Enjoy Your Visit To Half Moon Cay Beyond Just a Beach Break

    Half Moon Cay is one of the most beautiful private islands in the Bahamas and you can only get there when sailing with Holland America Line and Carnival cruises, so it will never be overcrowded like other Caribbean ports that you might have visited in the past. However, as nice as the white sand beaches and turquois waters are... there's actually more to enjoy here as well. Honestly though, while I had seen excursion options listed in my cruise planner before, I had never bothered to look past what I already knew I as going to love... relaxing on the beach.

    Holland America Line has suddenly become my favorite cruise line and I don't say that lightly.

  • Sandals Dunn's River Unveils Suite Plans For The Updated Ocho Rios Resort

    Heather and I - like many couples a couple decades ago - spent our honeymoon at Sandals in Ocho Rios. In the years that followed, many other competitors opened various properties offering a similar concept throughout Jamaica and indeed across the Caribbean too. However, in my mind, there will be only one resort that draws my eye every time I see it's name pop up on a newsfeed and that is Sandals. This time it was because their new Swim-up Rondoval suites are simply one of the coolest concepts that I've ever seen at a resort.

  • Ultimate Cuba Getaway For Guys

    Although it's only 90 miles from Florida, Cuba had severe travel restrictions for more than 60 years. In 2014, President Barack Obama lifted some of those restrictions and made it easier for Americans to visit the country. Between then and 2017, tourism was on the rise in the country.

  • Ways to Spend an Awesome Port Day in Grand Cayman

    Grand Cayman is a fabled island with a mystique of off-shore banking and as a playground for the rich and famous. While those two things are absolutely a core part of island life on Grand Cayman, there's so much more for visitors and it's one of my favorite places to visit on a cruise ship. This is even more true when traveling with someone special to share those experiences with.

  • Stunning Caribbean Islands You Should Visit This Year

    For many people, the Caribbean is an exotic land that is as a place for only the rich and famous. But it doesn't have to be that way and today there are many affordable ways to explore this beautiful part of the world, it's exotic islands and amazing food and friendly people. For me personally, cruising is one of my favorite ways to do this since I get a "sampler" of different islands so I know where I want to come back to in the future. Ironically, I started this way but now I really enjoy the experience of cruising itself since I never get bored and get to see somewhere new each and every day!

  • Carnival Sunshine Cruise Review

    Last fall I had the chance to take an 8-day Southern Caribbean Cruise with Carnival as part of one of our #MenWhoBlog cruises. This was the first time I've had a chance to really enjoy a cruise with a bunch of my guy friends as well as my wife so it was a bit of a different experience. Similarly, this was the longest cruise I've taken to date - and while it has been completely overhauled a couple years ago I was a bit nervous that it would feel dated. Luckily all those fears were unfounded and we had an amazing time that confirmed my premise that a group of guys can have an amazing time sailing together for a Carnival Cruise Mancation!

  • 15 Things I Can't Wait to Explore on Carnival Sunshine

    In less than a week I'll be getting on Carnival Sunshine along with a group of other male bloggers. Before any cruise though, I always love to do research to prepare but this one's a bit different since not only is it the "newest" ship in the Carnival fleet but it's an experiment of sorts with some new venues that aren't available on any other ship. Plus, while Heather is joining me on this trip as part of a romantic getaway, it's also a mancation at sea with some of my best friends.

    So, stay tuned to our adventure using #MWBcarnival on Twitter and Instagram. We're setting sail on November 13 and headed to Aruba, Bonaire, and Grand Turk before heading back to Port Canaveral on Florida's "Space Coast".

  • Clear Lounge "Underwater Bar" - Yet Another Reason to Visit Cozumel!

    At one point in time I dreaded visiting Cozumel - it was just boring unless you wanted to sit at a bar and drink all day. Over the years though, I've started to appreciate this Mexican tourist island for what it is. Now there is another attraction that just opened up and may actually be worth spending some of our tourist dollars for the sheer oddity of it. It's as if the owners thought, "hey, Cozumel offers some great opportunities for diving and it offers some great opportunities for drinking - so why not combine the two in a safe and fun way?"

  • I Found the Caribbean's Best Rum! It's Seven Fathoms Under the Ocean!

    Visitors to the Cayman Islands usually focus on sites like "Hell" or "Stingray City" but last fall when I visited this amazing little island we did things a bit different. Instead of the normal tourist spots, we went to a distillery, made new friends, drank some world class spirits, and then almost missed the last tender back to our ship. Luckily we didn't miss our ship, but if we had - this would have been TOTALLY worth it!

    Cayman Spirits has been distilling spirits since 2008 from a tiny shack in Georgetown Grand Cayman but in 2013, they moved into a fantastic new facility just outside of town with 5,000 square feet of space to offer tours, a tasting room, and production capacity to meet worldwide demand.
