Spicyland takes RoatanPosted: February 9, 2013
Roatan was our third stop and the other port for which we needed to exorcise a previously crummy visit. As with Belize, I now feel redeemed.
Our view Wednesday morning….aMAYzing!
Mahogany Bay is a private beach and a quick walk from the ship. The last time we visited Roatan, high winds forced us to dock at the older port that was without beach – plus it was drizzly and rainy, soooo….blaaaaahhh. But this, this was MUY bueno.
Since we were sharing the beach with Carnival’s Conquest, it was a bit crowded, but we took a day in the shade so it wasn’t hard to find a chair under a tree.
While DT snoozed, I walked down the beach and to the end of the pier for another view.
After we got back on the ship later that afternoon, we walked around each side to see the bay from all sides.
We set sail and waved goodbye to Mahogany Bay….
Until next time, you beautiful place!
A new discovery on the ship this year was the Alchemy Bar, where fresh, fruity, herbal-y cocktail concoctions were made.
My favorites: the Spicy Chipotle Pineapple Martini (the chipotle heat blended marvelously with the tart pineapple juice and crisp mint) and The Antioxidant, with yummy mango and the bright citrus of tangerine and orange – so refreshing!
The flavor combinations were so inventive and fun – we sampled a little bit of everything! (Almost 🙂 )
Our last port is ahead….Grand Cayman!
