Well, here’s an interesting one…
After a few false starts since 2012, a replica of the Titanic is once again scheduled to sail again in 2022. It’s said to have room for 2,400 passengers and 900 crew members and is planned to have the same cabin layout and decor as the original ship that found an untimely watery grave after hitting an iceberg in April 1912.

Lots of people like cruising. Granted, I’m generally not one of them, but I know many people (including Joe) who are. Yet, for all of my not being thrilled with them, this cruise just intrigues me:
- It’s 117 days/116 nights long
- It goes all around the world
- You stop at 43 destinations in 23 countries on 5 continents
- 15 shore excursions are included
So yeah, I’m thinking this cruise might be better than stopping at Nassau and some woman asking me, “Hey Shorty, you want your hair braided?” (trust me, that is NOT the way to become my friend. It will get me to give you side eye, though. Just ask the woman in Nassau who tried that in 2001). Here’s more info…
Cruise? Cruise? Did someone say cruise? While that word makes my ears perk up, Sharon’s not so enthusiastic when thinking about the idea of sitting on a ship in the middle of the ocean for days at a time. There are, however, two things that will help me get her onto a cruise boat.
Some Royal Caribbean ships have Flowriders. That alone could be a selling point, because Sharon has this odd enjoyment of Flowriders (Note from Sharon: Yes, I do! See the girl in that picture above? I can do that!).
Royal Caribbean also sails to Cuba and this would currently be the easiest way for us to get back and see Havana again.
If there’s a possibility that we’ll be going on a cruise, I needed to see if getting the Royal Caribbean Visa Signature credit card featuring MyCruise Rewards made sense.
