    MAGIC IN THE CARRIBEAN

     

    By KJT Kruise Koordinator Shirley Pokorney

    The KJT sails again!  Sailing on Carnival’s newest luxury liner, the Flag Ship Magic will make you feel as though you are waking up in Paradise every day.  Sailing has become the most popular vacation in the world.  You are pampered all day long.
    There are so many activities on board that it would fill the newspaper to recount them all.  But just the experience of gazing out onto the tranquil Caribbean waters on a beautiful moonlit night…well there’s nothing better.  Experience live shows that are every bit as good as Vegas.  Have all your meals in a beautiful, scenic dining room or enjoy the endless offerings of culinary delights on the Lido deck 24 hours a day.  If you have a taste for Lady Luck, there’s the Casino and daily Bingo that pay off very well.  Into crafts?  Experts demonstrate creative towel folding, martini making, carving fruit, veggies and even ice.  There will be entertainment ranging from comedy and magic to the music of piano, western, or vintage bands throughout the day and night and in venues throughout the ship.  Total relaxation or partying hearty – for either, choices abound.
    We depart from Galveston to save our members airline cost, so take a leisurely drive and save a bundle.  Galveston is a destination of its own.  The Strand, Moody Gardens, the Railroad Museum, the Bishop’s Palace, Seawolf Park, a ferry trip to Bolivar, and fabulous seafood are but a few of its many attractions.
    Even though Ray and I have been to Jamaica and Grand Cayman before, we are excited to return.  There are so many interesting choices of things to do in each port that you can’t fit it all in.  But you won’t want to miss Stingray City in Cayman.
