The month of December is always full of surprises, amazing holiday miracles, and wonderful thoughts from family, friends and associates…wherever they are or may be. Early in December 2011, I received a colorful and memorable Happy Birthday! Gift Card from Tampa, Florida…all the way to the Village of Lombard, where I live in Du Page County, Illinois. When I opened the envelope, I read “Happy Birthday!” from Carnival. Wow! Someone thoughtful remembered my Anniversary Birthday in December 2011, and forwarded their best wishes with a birthday celebration aboard a Carnival ship for an 8-day /7-Night Cruise vacation for 2 with an outside cabin, leaving from any major port in the U.S.A—approximate value is $1299 and No Purchase Necessary. What A Big Surprise for my birthday! It included a Bonus Gift for Two Round-trip Airfares leaving from or going to any major airport in the continental U.S.A.—this offer is not redeemable for cash. Right in the middle of the winter Christmas holidays, I just could not get away…to Carnival. Especially when Travel over major holidays is not permitted and some restrictions apply.

So, the New Year 2012 Jubilee celebrations arrived in January with the New Chinese Year of the Dragon in tow to celebrate all the anniversaries that come up throughout this year. I have not forgotten about Carnival Cruise in the middle of the Midwest snowstorms we are having in Illinois. Carnival Cruise offers a wide selection of travel options with Imagination to visit Miami, Key West in Florida and Cozumel, Mexico in the Caribbean. Or, I must travel Destiny to Ocho Rios in Jamaica, then go along to Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands. If I have enough time and energy, Valor can take me to Cozumel, Mexico, Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands. To sail in Glory, there are also ports to see in Nassau for the Bahamas, St. Thomas USVI, San Juan Puerto Rico, and Grand Turk, which includes La Romana in the Dominican Republic travelling the eastern Caribbean. If I take Liberty, there are options to see Cozumel, Mexico, Belize, Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan, Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands. Otherwise, Carnival Glory can take me to Boston Massachusetts or New York, to St. John New Brunswick, Halifax, NS, Sydney, NS, Canada, and return via Portland Maine back to port in Boston Massachusetts. The whole idea for a Carnival Cruise Anniversary is very exciting during 2012.

I am still wondering, “Where is the Carnival Cruise to Cuba, the Pearl of the Antilles and the center of the Caribbean as a destination port along Carnival Cruise itineraries?” If Carnival Cruises travel with Imagination, Destiny, Valor, Liberty, and Glory as far east as the coasts of Cozumel, Belize, Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan, Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands and makes port in Ocho Rios Jamaica; then Carnival Cruise can make port in Santiago de Cuba, in the island of Cuba, some day! “Why is not Carnival Cruise making port in Santiago de Cuba or La Habana, Cuba?”
