Carnival Victory Hurricane Dorian Cruise 2019 (Part 2)

Carnival Victory (soon to be Radiance)

Here is the second part of a 3 part series of my first Video Blog.  This is also my first time on a Carnival cruise ship, the Victory. Carnival is quite different from the many other cruises I’ve done on Royal Caribbean. In this video, we go to Key West and have key lime pie from what I think is the best place in the world to get it from.

Carnival Victory Hurricane Dorian Cruise 2019

I’ve been cruising for about fourteen years.  It has been a part of my travel and an integral part at that. Cruises allow one to visit many places during one trip without having to unpack and repack.  I have usually traveled on Royal Caribbean however, for this weekend cruise, I chose Carnival’s Victory ship.  Honestly, the reason for choosing it was simple- it was the only choice at the time.

A three-hour flight from Miami, Curaçao is a perfect destination to just escape the struggles of life and go into full “relax-mode”.  Turquoise beaches, rainbow-colored architecture, caves, snorkeling, diving, shopping – this island has plenty to occupy your days.

Fira, Santorini

After a fun-filled sea day enjoying the sun, activities, and food on Rhapsody of the Seas, Our next stop brings us to Santorini, Greece.  Santorini is a Greek island on the Aegean Sea about 120 miles off Greece’s mainland.  The island is part of a greater remnant volcanic caldera.  The island is what was left of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in the earth’s history, the Minoan eruption that occurred ~3,600 years ago.

Going on a Sea Cruise: Kotor, Montenegro

Bay of Kotor

Kotor, a fortified town in Montenegro provides an astounding 360° view entering the gulf as well as exiting.  This my friends is one port you want to be top-deck and ready to take it all in. First mentioned in 168 BC during the Roman era, the small town was fortified during the Middle Ages.  The exact time of founding is unknown.

Kotor is one of the best preserved medieval old towns on the Adriatic Sea and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
