The Carnival Vista Turns One With An Original Music Video

One year ago today we boarded the sparkling, so fresh and so clean clean Carnival Vista in Barcelona. I still vidily remember waking up on that morning. The sun was squeezing its way through the ancient alleyways of the Gothic quarter, casting shadows onto the exposed stone walls of the […]

Now Is The Time To Travel. Right Now. Before The Winds of Isolationism Blow Through Our Sails

While the opportunity to travel internationally is not, and will unfortunately never be, equally distributed, travel itself, the sheer notion of leaving the creature comforts of home to discover, explore, taste, smell, try, learn and seek…something, something else, something new or foreign or just plain different from what we know, […]

Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship was recently named and is scheduled to set sail in early 2018.
