WAS SOOOOO FUN!!! I'd read on a blog about an excursion called Salsa & Salsa. On this excursion they teach you how to make a bunch of different salsa's & then teach you to salsa dance. I highly recommend this. It was worth every penny. We took this pic from Cozumel. It's our ship & another Norwegian ship.
We were able to walk around for awhile before the excursion.
Be still my heart!!!!STARBUCKS!!!! Very exciting.
I had an iced green tea. YUM!! We got loaded into vans & were brought to a resort.
Pretty huh?
We were ready to start cooking.
Cliff & Sheri.
The rest of the crew!
As we walked in the building there was a table of frozen margarita's & bottled water waiting. I'm not a margarita drinker at all but these were AMAZING!!! Sooo good! There were waiters everywhere to fill up that glass every time you took a swallow. Crazy! That red looking drink is some non alcoholic drink that was almost like a flavored tea. It was good too. The first thing they taught us was how to make a margarita on the rocks & a strawberry margarita. The frozen one was my fave.
Jackie & Dennis ended up on stage. As you can see, Dennis isn't happy about this development. Jackie, however, was having a ball. You can guess whose idea it was to go on stage.
This was our table before we got started.
Dean was chopping up a very hot pepper. This is how we do things around our house, Dean cooks, I watch. We put very little of this pepper in our salsa & it was HOT!
Me doing what I do best - EATING! We made guacamole. YUM! We ended up making a 6 salsa's & a guac. The salsa we made with green tomatoes was the best! Next up was dessert.
This is some sort of vanilla bean ice cream that you can only get in Mexico. MOST AMAZING THING I'VE EVER TASTED. It was FABULOUS!!!
Then they had us add this stuff. Fruit & coconut. It was good but nothing like the plain stuff. I always knew it wasn't a good idea to add fruit to ice cream.

And now we're Salsa dancing!! They taught us on our own before we danced with our partner. I see why Zumba is such good exercise. My thighs were killing me by the time we were done! So fun!

Once we finished dancing we went & shopped a little & then got back on the ship. We had dinner & then more dessert. The chocolate buffet was that night. It's sooo pretty! There's chocolate everywhere!
Mickey was waiting when we got back to the room!



  1. How fun-- and yummy! I sooo love salsa. And I love the theme throughout... salsa dancing?? Sounds like a blast!

  2. What a fun excursion!! Brandon would like the salsa eating part, but not the dancing! :)

  3. That looks like a great excursion!! Great exercise after all the cooking and eating!!

  4. This sounds like a fun excursion. I don't know why but when we go to Cozumel, we always end up going snorkeling in Chankanaab, which is another one to consider the next time you go there. The resort is fabulous!..Christine

  5. This sounded like so much fun, Traci! Were you only gone a week? It seems like ya'll did so much and saw so many places. Too bad about the Zip-line thing, but now you have something to look forward to for the next trip, right? The captain may have been playing it extra careful because of that horrible accident a while back. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful experience.

  6. Awww, that looks like an awesome excursion!! Anything where I get to eat is something that I love. Haha.

  7. This sounds amazing...Gary and I would love that! I'm all about salsa and salsa! I love your hats!

  8. This looks amazing!! I could go back to Cozumel just for this! We went to the park there and dove where Underwater Jesus is - which was creepy. The park was awesome, but I don't like things underwater that don't belong.
