Beignets, Mexico and Carnival, oh my!
Have you ever wanted to take a Carnival cruise with a group of your travel besties? Me, too!
Join me on my first group cruise out of beautiful New Orleans to Cozumel, Mexico. Explore the French Quarter, eat all the beignets you want and follow it up with a few days of sun out at sea.
This 7 Day, 6 Night trip is a perfect bit of March sunshine after a long winter.
Welcome to New Orleans
By plane, trains, or automobile, you will arrive in New Orleans. The hotel has a local shuttle available for a fee or you can find your own way to the hotel. Once you get to the hotel, you will be greeted by Alyssa who will get you an itinerary of our week.
You will then have time to explore the beautiful French Quarter until the evening where we will walk to the Carousel Bar & Lounge for a round of welcome drinks to kick off a fun week and meet the rest of the group!
The rest of the night is free for those who want to dance the night away on Bourbon Street.
Explore the French Quarter
Are you ready for a beignet showdown? Cafe Beignet and Cafe Du Mond both claim to have some of the best beignets, so we are going to put them to the test with a beignet showdown. For breakfast we will visit both of the cafes and we will determine which one we think is the best!
Don’t worry, after breakfast we will have a free day to walk it off by exploring all that the French Quarter has to offer.
Time for our cruise! We will grab take away from a local coffee shop and then head back to the hotel to check out and catch a ride to the port.
At the port, we will get on board the Carnival Valor for 4 Nights of Carnival cruise fun to Mexico. Make sure to pack your sunscreen!
St. Patrick’s Day at Sea
Our first full day on board will be a sea day, which is a perfect way to get to know our ship, catch a show, or relax by the pool. And make sure to pack something green to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on board!
Welcome to Mexico. Today we will be in port in Cozumel, Mexico. You are welcome to do an excursion on your own, or join me at Cabana Beach where we will have a cabana rental for the day. Snorkel Chankanaab Reef, rock in a hammock, or get a massage. We will have the day to relax at our cabana before heading back to the ship.
Day at Sea
Our last day on board will be another sea day. Debating a spa day? This would be the perfect day to book your spa treatments.
All good things must come to an end. Our trip ends back in NOLA on Monday morning as our cruise comes to an end.
