Our second cruise escapade was a blast! We left the country right after our daughter finished first grade. We actually had an early summer vacation last year. It was a 7-day cruise from Galveston, Texas to Mahogany Bay (Honduras), Belize, and Cozumel (Mexico). We left on May 26th and came back on the 2nd of June, 2013.
Visiting 3 countries in a week is not enough time to see and explore each country, but it was an ideal trip for my family. Cruise vacation is a lot cheaper!
