Kelly and I have celebrated most of the significant holidays at sea - Super Bowl Sunday, Valentine's Day, Saint Patrick's Day, Independence Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, my birthday month.
But never have we celebrated a Christmas at sea - until now. This December, we will be sailing on the MV Explorer with an enrichment voyage to Central and South America.
Our itinerary includes the Bahamas, Jamaica, Colombia, Panama and its canal, Ecuador, Peru, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Mexico.
We'll be in Costa Rica on December 25 where the high temperature for Christmas Day averages 87 degrees. So that severely limits our chances of a 2012 white Christmas. And although the cabins on the MV Explorer are quite nice, there's no chimney for Santa's big entrance. Christmas 2012 will be different.
Want to find out whether Santa can find us in Costa Rica? Want to experience a snow-free Christmas season at sea? Then come join us! Let me know by November 15 for the inside scoop!
Yours in Ho-Ho-Ho-ing at sea,
