Port of Mahogany Bay Beach Side

Mahogany Bay Cruise Port sits in the beautiful country of Honduras. The Cruise Port is located on the island of Roatan and is owned and operated by Carnival Cruise Lines. It is only offered to those patrons who cruise on ships run by Carnival Cruise Line Corporation. We visited this port in January of 2020 while on a Carnival Breeze Cruise that took us to the Western Itinerary! It was a beautiful picture from the ship pulling seeing the water, all the windmills and mountains.

This is a beautiful port with a lot of lush greenery landscaping and flowers! A nice spot to relax, shop, have lunch, go to the beach, take a nature trail walk or perhaps just lay in a lounge chair with a nice book! The port has several options to choose from in the Beach Rental department. All sorts of sports rentals and snorkel gear. The area to kayak was really nice! There is a nature trail that you can walk prior to going over the bridge to get to the beach, we took it and it was nice but it is not wheel chair assessable! The walk across the bridge was a nice walk that offered a great view of the ship! The chair lift is available too that will take you to the beach. At the time of our visit the chair lift was $16 per person to ride. We selected not to ride but to walk and take our time. My next visit I plan to ride it to get some really nice views!

This port also offers several options for food and drink. Plenty of options for alcoholic beverages! There was a stand that had Jerk Chicken being cooked on a huge food smoker. It smelled delicious! We elected to eat at Fat Tuesday and the food was really good. It offered all kinds of American cuisine and some authentic dishes. The area gives you a nice Island vibe with music and drink!

Shopping is available entering the port and on both sides of the port when you come in. Duty Free! Beautiful wood carved items, souvenirs and much more! There is also an outdoor local craft market that had many items to choose from. This port also offers excursions that you can choose from directly on your Carnival booking prior to sailing. The numbered meeting areas for excursions are as soon as you come in to the port after the duty free store you will walk in. You can’t miss them!

We elected to walk around and see what was there since we had never been before. We got some food and drink, shopped, walked the nature trail and visited the craft market! It was a great day! Certainly a port I will return to!

Below I have included some photos of my day at the port and included my Youtube video for your viewing pleasure.

Norwegian Sun Ship ported in Nassau Bahamas

My brother and I sailed on the Norwegian Sun in May of 2018. It was a 3 night Bahama cruise. We sailed from Port Canaveral Cruise Port in Florida. She would be our second Norwegian Cruise Line cruise. Embarking was smooth and painless. We did not have a long wait and was on board in no time. She had a 3 deck atrium with gold trim. The carpets had swirls of blues and creams. The rich wood columns made the atrium look very elegant. Walking on board was a nice invite from the crew who were there to greet you, security and personal selling lanyards to spa information. The staff was very friendly. She was a small intimate ship.

Our Stateroom

We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 forward. Room 9025 was our stateroom. It was a roomy and cozy cabin. It had a king bed that converted to two twin beds which we had separated. There was an end table that separated our beds and lighting was on the mirror wall for a night light if needed. The decor was nice and modern, the furniture was in good shape but did show some signs of wear, the closet was good size and was stocked with plenty of hangers. There was a vanity desk with mirror and stool. It was also a console with drawers and storage area. A mini fridge was available and a hair dryer. The stateroom had plenty of area for storage and the beds were high enough to roll the empty luggage under for storage. The couch was a pull out bed that we did not use. The bathroom was decent, standard size, it had a shower, sink and toilet. There was plenty of soap and shampoo in the shower that was available if needed. The balcony had a table and two chairs and was a decent size. The stateroom was clean and our host was really attentive to our needs and kept us stocked with what we needed.

Recreation on board

The Norwegian Sun had a lot of options for recreation on board. You will find something for everyone on board! The activity program had several options for games and trivia along with theater shows. The ship also had shuffleboard, ping pong, basketball and volleyball court. The main pool area had two swimming pools and four hot tubs. Plenty of lounge chairs were available but does get busy on Sea Days. There is also a kiddie pool and a hot tub on deck 12. The ship also offers a library which had board games, cards and books for your leisure entertainment. The art gallery is available for all your art needs or if you just want to browse the ones on display around the ship. If it’s shopping your looking for there are shops on board with options from personal items, liquor, cigarettes, clothing, souvenirs and high and non high end jewelry! Do not forget to check out the Spa on board to get a nice relaxing service of nails, hair or massage! The ship also has a Fitness gym with bikes, treadmills, free weights, ellipticals and classes! The Casino on board offers tables and slots.

Dining and Bars:

The ship has many dining options available on board. Specialty dining is available for an extra charge and can be reserved prior to sailing in your reservation account online.

I have included below a Youtube Pictorial video of my Norwegian Sun Cruise back in 2018. I do plan to sail her again and will provide an updated video on her since she has been refurbished since my sailing. Please do not forget to subscribe to the channel for more of my travel content!
