Mayan Mystique Cruise - Late Feb. 2012

We took the "Mayan Mystique" cruise on Oceania Feb. 26 - March 7, visiting 4 Caribbean countries plus Key West in 10 days. Each country and port was different and enjoyable. Howard concentrated on ship/port activities & camaraderie while I concentrated on seeing as much of each destination as my feet and wallet could stand. We got together to enjoy food, relaxation, and the chance to leave cooking, cleaning, dog care, and worrying behind.

It was a bit scary for me, but we drove around quite a bit of the island, which is beautiful and mello. (This is NOT me!!)

There were beautiful bathing suit cover-ups for sale next to Capt. Van's office. Iguanas (real ones) are common on Roatan.
