@Big Mike...if the vessel is under power, can you really call it a "sail"?. That said...you call it any damn thing you want and enjoy the hell out of it. DB


..sometimes to highten the passengers blood pressure they are calling it a sail:

Mike, if you want to consider something "off the wall", I'd consider Santorini in Greece. It's a bit of a PITA to get there but the level of relaxation and tranquility is so much better than any other place I've been anywhere in the world including island hopping trips in Fiji.

You will come back fully refreshed with really great memories. US resorts are nice but can be "same old same old".

You can rent a little house or room on the cliff face in downtown Fira with one of the best views in the world. Easy walk to get food etc.

I'm not sure about the women in Santorini but you could do a side trip to Mykonos which has a great night life and jaw dropping women sunbathing on the beach naked which is always a plus.

Santorini Villas, Rent a Villa on Santorini - RentVillas.com

What the hell? I click on the link looking for the nude girls sunbathing on the beach and I see room quotes?
Come on Brother, I know you clicked some pics. You can send them to me via PM

If you always do what you have always done you will always get what you have always gotten.
Celebrate because you executed your edge. Not because you won.

Emerald Bay Bahamas


We took a Sandals trip to Emerald Bay.
They have a butler service in addition to all the typical.
If you have not chosen yet, You may want to take a look.

If you always do what you have always done you will always get what you have always gotten.

Cuba before it is Starbucked

Cuba on an all inclusive in Veradero.
People of all ages and from all over the world. Hardly any children and the children that were there kept mostly to the children's pool. A day trip to Havana to see the Cuba as it was in 1950's. Great food in Havana. You can rent a car and get a driver/tour guide for an additional $2/day. We had a driver whose English was not very good, so we asked for another and he was wonderful. An Eddy Murray look alike. Internet available. Food at the all inclusive is just OK. Beaches are just about the best in the world. Snorkeling, skuba diving, catamaran.

Used to be illegal for Americans to visit Cuba, but you just ask that your passport not be stamped.

Highly recommend having a driver take you to Trinidad where the Cuban music is everywhere. Can stay at a Pension where lobster dinner and breakfast is included. Remember to bring your passport to the Pension. Lots of single women go to Veradero. Dancing in the dance halls at Veradero on the weekend with Salsa competitions. Not for a month, but for maybe 10 days.

I wouldn't spend all my days at the all inclusive but certainly you need a good rest and this might be just the ticket for you.

Mike - all the islands are the same. Narrow your list to the ones that have nonstop service from DFW (i think you are dallas?). Then pick a resort - the all inclusives are all relatively the same - decent food, good beaches, great drinks, cool activities.

Sandals are great if you are going with a significant other AND diving is included. if you dont dive, you should and you can get certified there. Best diving/snorkling islands are Turks and Cayman (no all inclusive resorts really).

I think the best Sandals resort is the newest one on St. Lucia on the spit of land between the ocean and the carribbean.

If you are going solo and not looking to remain that way - go to Hedonism....

I highly recommend getting yourself some kids and going to Beaches at Turks.

My trading is like my avatar: Big, Hairy, and Full of S$&T.

I'm back

In catch up mode for now, but have some amazing pictures and maybe some videos to share (depending how much time I have).

The views were amazing, ship was amazing, crew was amazing, shows amazing, pools amazing, and I enjoyed the ports (even though I had been to three of them before).

The food was also fantastic and even though I was eating and drinking all day, I still managed to lose 5 pounds due to all the activity.

I want to thank @sam028 for holding down the fort while I was gone.

Sam, I would have bought some nice liquor for you but shipping it (customs) is not easy. So instead you'll get some other souvenirs

Thx!
