Being Black In Mexico And Carnival Cruise

Hey Queens!

I think traveling is what I did in a past life and it won’t let me go. I think about it daily, I find myself sitting up late planning my next trip. Is that only me? Yes? Okay! In November, I celebrated my 4 year natural hair anniversary, my 27th birthday, and my first international trip. I took my very first cruise and learned a lot!

I traveled Carnival Cruise | Fantasy for 5 days. We ported from Mobile, AL and had two designation ports: Progreso, Yucatan Mexico and Cozumel, Mexico.

The cruise was a different experience I am willing to definitely try again. My favorite part about a cruise is the staff. The staff is well cultured and I LOVE THEM! I had so much fun and interesting conversation about what I considered normal in the states versus Peru or The British Virgin Islands.

Mexico is considered underdeveloped financially, but a piece of my heart is left in this warm country. From the people, food, and atmosphere- I’m sold.

    Went cruising on the Breeze in April. First time cruiser and loved it and can’t wait to get back on one.
