Carnival Legend

Isn’t the concept of cruising appealing?!  You pack once and wake up in a different country almost every day.  You can eat around the clock and never have to worry about paying the bill or tipping anyone.  You can see a show or participate in an activity almost whenever you want.  If you have kids you can utilize the ships camp program where they get to have their own fun while you enjoy a little adult time…for free!  You can relax by the pool and have the attendants get you drinks all day long…who wouldn’t want to do that?!

Our third port of the cruise was to Carnival’s private island; Mahogany Bay.  Mahogany Bay is on the island of Roatan, one of the Honduras Bay Islands in the Caribbean Sea.  The port has duty free shopping, bars, restaurants, excursion options, and ofcourse a private beach.

For this port we booked a private tour of the entire island.  We wanted to get the true feeling of this country rather than just staying at Carnival’s little Disneyland!  In fact, independent tour operators are not even allowed into the terminal area to pick up passengers.  You need to walk up a big hill and exit the security gate if you’ve booked privately….and so we did!  After leaving the cruise port terminal the island definitely boasts a more rustic feel, especially in comparison to the other ports on this journey.  There is a lot of elevation and the island has very lush jungles!  There is one main road that takes you from end to end with all of the side roads off of that.
