At around 6:00 AM we docked at Port Everglades in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. It was still dark out and we were up early because we had to be ready to walk off the ship (carrying our own luggage) at 7:00 AM.
Today was our last day on the 7-night Caribbean cruise with Celebrity Silhouette. We spent the day at sea, sailing from Grand Cayman Island back to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Our friends went to explore Grand Cayman Island on rented scooters while Mr. A and I decided to take it slow and just do our own thing. We ended up have a total déjà vu moment on the island…
In Cozumel we all got together for a private 5-hour boat tour that turned our to be the most amazing experience and one that I’d highly recommend to others!
This was our 2nd time visiting Costa Maya in Mexico (both on a Celebrity cruise). Our friends were doing a jungle bike tour where they would go swimming in a cenote and go paddle boarding by some beach. That’s too much activity for us, so we decided to go (back) to Tropicante beach and just spend the day relaxing on the beach.
Today is a sea day on Celebrity Silhouette. We departed Key West yesterday afternoon and spent the entire day sailing to Mexico. Tomorrow morning, we’ll arrive in Costa Maya and most likely head to the Tropicante beach club that we went to on our last visit.
This is my 2nd time visiting Key West on a cruise. It’s such a charming and fun little island to visit. I ove the laid-back ambiance and the architecture is amazing…I’m just in love with the old houses that you see all over downtown or old town Key West.
We ended our short stay in Miami with a fantastic dinner at a great restaurant that we happened to find online: Komodo.
After 3 months of going nowhere, it’s finally time to let the travel season begin…
It’s time to check out of our hotel, to say goodbye to Miami…and go home. Our trip back goes very smoothly. When we get to the airport, a guy comes up and asks if we want to check in curbside. It’s never worked before, but we try it and voila…we’re good to go.
