Most of our travel in the Caribbean was done on cruises, except for Isla Mujeres, Holbox and The Colombian Islands of Providencia and San Andres.  We traveled to those islands by ourselves.


As we love snorkeling and want you to feel the same, I have create special snorkel pages that tell you what to expect at these wonderful islands/locations:

Rudy's Cruise Guide

How to cruise the Caribbean


So far, all of our Caribbean cruises were on Carnival Cruise Lines.  We like Carnival as their cruises are fun, we especially love their comedy clubs.  Also, Carnival cruises are among the cheaper cruises.  The quality of the entertainment and food is good, the crew is friendly and they go to many different ports of call in the Caribbean and elsewhere.

If you are new to cruising, then please check out Rudy's Cruise Guide for Beginners & Others.  It is designed to help anyone who is new to cruising to find the cruise that is perfect for you.   I provide detailed instructions on what to do and things you should know.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please contact me.
