The Happy Traveler
Monday, August 11, 2008
Our favorite type of vacation is the mini-cruise, a 3-4 night getaway to the Bahamas aboard Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Seas, a 1,200-room, almost-74,000-ton beauty that was elegantly refurbished last year. Its dedicated home port is Miami. Majesty sails from Friday to Monday morning and Monday afternoon to Friday morning. What happens during this time is bliss and relaxation. Escape? It's all about the cruise!

I have a passion for travel, whether it's solo, with my husband or with my grandchildren. This is how I nourish my mind and discover and embrace history, cultures, architecture and landscapes. Sometimes, a travel experience is absolutely indelible.
While on a Greek Islands cruise aboard the beautiful and very Italian ship, Costa Classica, I saw fertile, pine-clad valleys, sleepy olive groves and hilly, goat-trodden terrain. I explored the ruins of Doric temples and fragments of statuary fashioned from limestone and legend. For me, the most enchanting port was Kithera.
