Late February 2020, my wife and I took a brief winter escape on the NCL Getaway. A Caribbean cruise that sailed out of New Orleans. On this 7 day cruise we visited Cozumel, Roatan, Belize and Costa Maya. When we returned to New Orleans we had a few hours before we needed to arrive at the Louis Armstrong airport so we had some time walking the streets of New Orleans.
Day 1 was on the sea as we headed towards Cozumel.
Day 2 was a beautiful restful day in Cozumel where we grabbed a cab and spent the day on the beach in Chankanaab park.
Day 3 was great day in Roatan where we did a pre-booked excursion to Gumbalimba Park.
Day 4 was a colder overcast day where we spent time in a brand new Norwegian resort. A location for shopping, eating, drinking and lazing on the beach.
Day 5 was a fantastic day in Costa Maya, Mexico. We rented bicycles and went for a ride to a neighbouring shopping/tourism centre Mahahual. If you dream of retiring and selling coconuts on the beach, this is the spot you would do it.
Day 6 was on the sea heading back to New Orleans.
Day 7 was walking the streets of New Orleans.
