Gary,

Here is the place that I was telling you about in costa maya..

I have read some wonderful reviews.

http://www.costamayabeachresort.com/

But we also loved going to the beach area that we went to last time. Here they offered either ala carte or all inclusive drink packages and I had the best beach massage ever there for dirt cheap.

For Isle of roatan, I am stongly going to suggest Tabanya beach. It was the best snorkeling by far that we have ever experienced.

As far as hotels in the orlando area, that would all depend on what else you wanted to do...disney, universal, sea world, or head directly to cocoa beach. There are so many options and choices...

I am posting a message which will automatically make me a member of this thread and I will continue to receive daily updates of all the turtle and whale pictures. [At least I think that that was a whale.]

As I had to leave the 'Slot Pull' early, I was wondering who was going to send me my share of all the winnings? As I was leaving I heard a lot of yelling around the machine so I know you guys were hitting it big.

Please send a check instead of coins. I don't think that FedEx handles packages that are heavily filled with coins.


[Proof of the winnings!]

I am currently following two other boards of ships I will be sailing on in October and December. Oh -- my travel life is so complicated. I wouldn't wish it on you.

I'll be back in San Juan and St. Thomas in December. I bought three cans of different brands of Puerto Rican coffee in the grocery store and I will have to increase my supply when I return.


Good Luck to all

Good morning/almost afternoon to everyone!



I just wanted to point out a few things about our new home.

We have our own forum which we can post various threads.
For the link, go here

http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=766

OR look at the top of this page and click on where it says "the voyagers Living La Vida on the Victory"



Once on the main page of our forum you will see I have posted a section called "The Daily Chit-Chat."
http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1482975

Here we can post about general things happening in our lives, etc.



Also, I created a thread called "Pictures from the Victory Sailing - Sept. 2011"
http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1482972

Just thought it would be easier to post pictures from our cruise there and all.



Feel free to start your own threads on our home page. It's ours and we can do with it what we want!!!

P.S. Be sure to bookmark or subscribe to each thread if you want to be notified when there are new posts!

When we stopped in Cozamel that last time we went to Nochi Coccum (sp)......$49 per person, all inclusive....and I heard they had great massages. Only a 10 min ride from the pier....$15 taxi. Also heard they did great snorkeling trips...but Arnie didn't do one at that time. They only take 100 people....and each couple gets their own palapa and chair.

Hey Sue and Christine and this place called
Nachi Cocum Beach Club
sounds as if it just might be the place as to hang out for the day of fun in the sun and to enjoy the beach in Cozumel along with some Fajitas and some Margaritas.
Finally got a hold of Jeff today and he and I I think shall be booking first thing in The Morning.
Can't Wait as it should be a fun time to be had and enjoyed by all.

Hey Sue and Arnie, during the cruise a theme kept going thru my mind. "It's not where you are, it's who you're with" that makes a trip awesome. That is why you should wait on Alaska and join the cruise on the Dream next September!!!!
