We’ve wanted to sail on Crystal for some time now, and we were very lucky to get space on a Seminar taking place on the Crystal Serenity December 15-22. We’re very excited about this cruise and plan to post to the blog live from the ship. We hope you’ll join us on the virtual cruise.

Our first port of call is Key West, Florida. Since most of the cruise is already heavily scheduled for us in advance, we’ve decided not to schedule any shore excursions in Key West – we’ll just go exploring on our own. We’re hoping to visit The Ernest Hemingway House and say hello to all the cats. We’re also interested in the Heritage House Museum which has a very large orchid collection.

Our second port of call is Grand Cayman where we have signed up to swim with stingrays. In Cozumel, we chose the Catamaran Sail, Snorkel & Beach Party excursion where they’re taking us to a beach with kayaks and hammocks. Finally, in Progreso we will take a wooden boat through mangroves and swim in a cenote.

We can’t wait to sail and hope that if you need a break during this hectic holiday season, you’ll take a few minutes and join us on the virtual cruise!
