Ruby Princess: Night 5 dinner

It was a full day in Mazatlan, and we even got to try some local food and pastry. Even though we had the corn muffins and coffee for our mid day snack, I came to dinner with an appetite. I started off with the soup, Pasta a Fagioli […]

Lunch at El Shrimp Bucket, Mazatlan

Our city tour of Mazatlan was done, and the bus was heading back to the ship.  Stephen’s parents stayed on the bus while Chilly Willy dropped us off at El Shrimp Bucket, a restaurant known for seafood, but primarily their shrimp. The restaurant was located across the street […]

Ruby Princess: Day 5 in Mazatlan

We left Puerto Vallarta right after sunset, and set sail to Mazatlan.  Our ship docked at 700 am, and according to the ship’s Princess Patter,  it was going to be another lovely, sunny day. This popular port is known primarily for their seafood, especially shrimp.  The tour company […]

Ruby Princess: Night 4 dinner

After a day of walking and shopping, I was ready for dinner!  Tonight’s dinner came with a starter, soup and/ or salad, then an intermezzo sorbet, followed with our main course.  For dessert, I just had a plate of their petite cookies and coffee.  A little boring, I […]

Ruby Princess: Night 3 dinner

The best part of a cruise is trying something new every night.  I focused on seafood for tonight’s dinner, while Stephen went for seafood and a whimsical pasta. We must have had “just ice cream” for dessert, as I didn’t take any photos of the sweets we had. […]

The ship ended up leaving San Pedro a little after midnight. We woke up to gloomy weather, with rough seas.  We had many options for breakfast, from sit down breakfast at the restaurant, buffet on the Lido Deck, quick bites of pastries at the International Cafe on the […]

This is the final year that the Detroit Red Wings will be playing at the Joe Louis Arena.  Next year they’ll have a new home, called the Little Caesar’s Arena,  located behind Hockey Town Cafe. We braved the arctic cold weather to see this historic arena, and of […]

Detroit’s People Mover 

Great transportation if you’re staying in the Downtown Area without a car! We were staying at the Aloft Detroit at The David Whitney which is centrally located if you want to go to the Comerica Park, Ford Field or the Hockeytown Cafe. We, however, needed to go to […]

Detroit: Downtown Louie’s Lounge

You ever heard that saying “I really wanted to like this place, but….” That’s my take on this place. The inside was quaint and cozy.  The staff, friendly.  But, the food had a spin to their food that maybe my SoCal palate isn’t used to the MidWestern way […]
