Carnival Magic Cruise, Part 2. I Almost Forgot...

...Roatan! We were really looking forward to visiting Roatan again. It is a beautiful island off the coast of Honduras. We visited for a day back in the mid 1990s, on the late, great Stella Solaris, also sailing out of Galveston (as well as Greece) on a Mayan Equinox Cruise.

Folks anxiously awaiting our entry into that harbor back there behind the boat. Hmm. That sure looks like a narrow entrance. Hmm. It sure is taking a long time to get in theah. We puttered around, stopped dead in the water, and sadly, watched the wind push the boat sideways. Well. No Roatan this trip. The boat is big and the harbor entrance is small, with rocks on both sides. It's a tight fit for the Magic in the best weather.

I can see that Roatan is mostly unspoiled. Too bad we won't be visiting. We wind up getting an extra day at sea and a credit of the port charge. Maybe next time.
