So we’re off to the Caribbean via New Orleans in 7 days! Well, 7 working days. Counting down? Yeah…just a wee bit.

First: New Orleans and then: The Caribbean, baby!

When you think of cruise ships most people think of Florida, Alaska, or Mexico as the main jumping off ports. At least I do. But when planning our latest mini vacation I found that there are a ton of ports in the US that cruise ships leave from, one of which is New Orleans!

I’ve always wanted to check out The Big Easy and not just for Mardi Gras. There is an amazing amount of history, culture, food and so much more. Even though we’re only spending a couple days in New Orleans it’ll give us a chance to check out the city for a bit.

And New Orleans is just the jumping off point, after a day there we’re hopping on board a Royal Caribbean ship and heading for warmer weather and pristine beaches!

This trip will take us to Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel Mexico! Needless to say, I’m super excited!

I’ll be posting more in the coming weeks about the trip and getting prepared. and obviously, there will be a crazy amount of pics coming your way 🙂
