Crystal Caribbean Cruise 2019 – In Review!

You may have noticed that during the months of January and February, Gospel music cruises sail out of Florida almost every week.

Keturah – Around The World In 80 Books #6

I’ve been on a little bit of a Lisa Bergren kick lately. I read one of her books for the first time a few weeks ago and fell in love with her style. After taking an Eastern Caribbean Cruise with one stop at a British West Indies island at the end of January, I knew…

Waterfall – Around The World In 80 Books #5

“Waterfall” by Lisa Bergren is a YA (Young Adult) novel about two teenage sisters who find a portal that transports them back in time to medieval Italy. Though I’m not typically a fan of time travel novels and it’s been a long time since I’ve read a YA book, I was thoroughly captivated by Gabi…

Singing at Sea Cruise – 2019 In Review!

Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance Of The Seas sat anchored at the cruise terminal in Tampa Bay. In just a few hours, the ship would be filled with over 2,000 Gospel music fans for the 45th annual Singing At Sea Cruise; and I couldn’t be happier to leave all the cold temps and snow at home for…

The Far Horizon – Around The World In 80 Books #3

After reading the first book in the Macquarie Series, I couldn’t wait to dive into the second, “The Far Horizon.” Beginning in Scotland and moving to Botany Bay (Sydney, Australia – before the country was called Australia), we get to see Lachlan Macquarie remarry, have a child and become governor of New South Wales, the…

By Eastern Windows – Around The World In 80 Books #2

I loved this novel! Never thought I would read something that would make me wish I could time travel back to Bombay, India in the late 1700’s, early 1800’s, but this book did. “By Eastern Windows” by Gretta Curran Browne follows Lachlan Macquarie through his early years in the British Army as he leaves his…

When The Lights Go Out

If it’s January and you just spent two days in a car driving to Florida, you might be going on a cruise. And if you’re going on a Gospel Music Cruise, you will definitely find a concert to attend on the way down! That was the case for my crew on Friday, when we stopped…
