The Western Caribbean aboard the Norwegian Sea – An Action Packed Adventure!

Thanks to some really cool shore excursions this particular cruise was certainly the most physically demanding cruise we’ve done.


We went tearing through the jungle in Cozumel on ATV’s and visited Mayan ruins, we swam with dolphins in Roatan, and in Belize we went inner tubing in an underground river.

One of the things about cruising that we enjoy is that you can do these crazy shore excursions, come back to the ship, eat anytime if you happen to be hungry... no shortage of food on a cruise ship, or go to one of the pools and bag some rays.  There is always something going on...make that there are always several things going on.  We don't often get bored on a cruise.

Jungle ATV ride in Cosumel Mexico - Kathy mounting her steed...


 

I didn't get many photos of Kathy on an ATV ... hard ot ride and shoot at the same time....



LOL... Kathy is ready to head back to the ship. 


Swimming with Dolphens... an incredible experience.
 
 

Why does the dolphin seem so happy?
 
 

Kathy was a little nervous about being kissed by a dolphin...
 
Inntertubing through an underground river in Belize...
 
 

It was quite a long walk to get to the river through this jungle.
 
 

this is after we got out of the caves...
 
 

This is the mouth of the cave as we finnished our ride... it was pitch black in the cave and I didn't have my camera anyway.  Had to get my camera and go back into the cave to get this photo...



From a jungle mud ride to formal night...yep... I have a tux.



Catching up on a little snooze time...



We always meet great people on our cruises...here are some of our new friend...

Another great cruise comes to an end.
