Beach escape excursion. Edgar was the greatest. Waited on us, called us by name. Although it rained for about an hour while we were there, we still have a great time and would recommend this for anyone just wanting to relax. For $60.00, you can get unlimited drinks for 2 for 4 hours and one entre each from the menu. We both had the chicken tacos. They were quite tasty. Shopping in the "tourist area" is a bit pricey, and again, some of the smaller retailers will haggle on price.
Galveston is a nice port town. We ate at Bennos Cajun Seafood on Seawall Blvd. Was excellent
Belize City, Belize
Having had surgery 7 days before this port, we scheduled no excursions. We walked to the "Belize" sign and the Bliss "light house". We then perused the shops, picking up a few items for our hot tub/patio area. The smaller shops will haggle with you on price, if you are so inclined. Belize is not one of our favorite stops, as the crime rate is a bit high. On a previous visit, we did the "Altun-Ha" Mayan ruin tour. It was great, but all of the other excursions seemed a bit strenuous for 7 days post-surgical. So, we just kinda "hung out".
She is a large vessel. Familiarize yourself with the layout prior to sailing. And, ENJOY.
