Carnival Cruise Port Stop Mahogany Bay, Roatan

On July 28, 2013 we boarded the beautiful Carnival Conquest and set sail for 7 days of Fun in the Sun! Our first port stop was Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan.

The first view we had upon arrival, was of the beautiful $62 million Mahogany Bay Cruise Center. 

You might be interested to know that there over 30 retailers at the cruise center for duty-free shopping. There is even a Fat Tuesday bar, with a New Orleans carnival theme, playing dance music and serving drinks all day. This is also where cruisers meet to begin shore excursions.

Notice how beautiful the surrounding area is. It was hard for us not to get lost in the lust landscaping and tropical scenery. We were even treated to a few of the local wild inhabitants such as Iguanas, butterflies and what seemed like hundreds of hummingbirds.

In Mahogany Bay we had many great options for shore excursions, but since we were on a limited budget we decided to make this a beach day. While researching this locat…

RedBox Instant: $8 Per Month for 4 DVD Rentals + Unlimited Streaming Movies!!

I'll admit, I don't easily promote programs in which you are required to pay a monthly fee. Thinking back I can only remember a few, such as Amazon Prime, that I feel are worth the price. However I really like this one since I'm already paying to rent Redbox movies anyway.

Here's the deal - with RedBox Instant you pay $8 per month for 4 DVD credits + unlimited access to streaming movies (available on Android, iPhone and iPads, Computers, Tablets, Roku, Xbox, Google TV, Samsung Smart TVs & Blu-ray Players and LG Smart TVs). You can also choose to upgrade to Blu Ray for $9/month. You can cancel your subscription anytime if you choose not to continue!

FREE TRIAL - Right now they are offering a 1-month FREE trial if you are a new subscriber. Go HERE to get started (or HERE for mobile). Remember you can cancel anytime and not get charged the $8/month but I think you'll like to keep it.

To put this in perspective; if you are already renting 4 movies per month with …
