Royal Caribbean’s Main Dining Room Menu – Truffle Theme

Royal Caribbean’s main dining room menu rotates nightly through an assortment of menus that are shared across their ships, usually coordinated with the ports they are sailing to and the tastes of the main demographics on board the ships.

Lautoka Fijian South Sea Island Experience

We had trouble finding much useful information online or from people we know about things to see and do in Lautoka, Fiji, the third stop and first Fijian port on our South Pacific cruise on the Royal Caribbean Voyager of the Seas. As a result, we didn’t book any shore excursions in advance. After reading

New Zealand North Island 32-Day Road Trip Itinerary + 10-Day Cruise

In September and October 2018, we did a 32-day road trip around the North Island of New Zealand followed by a 10-day cruise that brought us back to Australia via the South Island of New Zealand. I know, 32 days seems like an awful lot to spend on just the New Zealand North Island, right? Especially considering we visit some of those same places again on the subsequent 10-day cruise home.
