There are so many great photo spots in Edinburgh that it was truly hard to narrow it down to just my favorites! These are all places I’ve been to on past visits though, so I can vouch for them.

The Quick Guide to Visiting Vegas Beyond the Strip

When most people think of visiting Las Vegas, it’s all about partying at casinos and the glitz and glam of The Strip. But the truth is, there’s much more to Vegas than mega-casinos and pool parties.

That’s why when Marriott Hotels invited me to come experience a different side of Vegas, I jumped at the chance! So, without further ado, here’s my quick guide of things to do and where to stay in Vegas off-Strip.

Cruise Review: Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the Seas

The Navigator of the Seas was amplified in early 2019 to the tune of $115 million, and I got to be one of the first to experience the new additions and reimagining of the ship! Some changes include the first blow dry bar at sea, To Dry For, a new Caribbean poolscape, new and improved dining and nightlife options, and more. For our sailing, the itinerary was a 5-day trip roundtrip to-and-from Miami via the Bahamas and Haiti (at Royal Caribbean’s private island, Labadee), with two full days at sea. One of the nice things about being on a larger ship like the Navigator of the Seas is that there was always plenty to do during the sea days, so we were never bored (but more about that later)! You can find future sailing dates for the Navigator of the Seas and additional info about the ship here. Without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about the new-and-improved Navigator of the Seas!
