Festival at Sea - Day 3

Our first port of call was Labadee, Haiti. Labadee is on the northern coast of Haiti and is a regularly visited port of call on Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries during the fall-winter season. It is just over 1/2 mile long and 1/3 mile wide, which makes it very walkable. In addition, Labadee is very accessibility friendly.

I signed up for a walking tour. I thought it would be helpful to see the island from the view of someone who lived in Haiti.


Our first stop was a short stroll from the pier to these huge rock formations.

For a closeup video of the rock formation, click on this link:


Me having fun and picture posing. I'm not big on picture taking though you can't tell from this excursion. But the views were so breathtaking I wanted to make sure the moment was captured so that I would remember every view.

You know I absolutely love these views. I could just sit and stare all day.

Headed to our next stop. To see the dancers that entertained us on our way, click this link: https://youtube.com/shorts/MvBZzh2Nps8

Leaving the Port in Labadee

While heading back out to sea, there were some beautiful homes in the hills and water scenes that I just had to capture.

 

The Isley Brothers


Going to see them Isleys tonight. The fee for all of the entertainment was included in the price of the cruise.

At this point in the show, those who know the Isley Brothers know who stopped by. It wouldn't be an Isley Brothers show without him. To see Mr. Biggs perform Contagious, click here: https://youtu.be/blZhavNJpS4

We are having a great time at this show. Here they are singing one of my favorite songs-For the Love of You: https://youtu.be/7KcyAXc4uS0


Ron Isley starts out singing Jesus Loves Me, This I Know. Then he brought his wife, Kandy Isley, up front and she brought the conclusion of the whole matter. Mrs. Isley can sang!!! See for yourself: https://youtu.be/0bLSvcB93Ww

During Earnest Isley and Kandy Isley rendition of Jesus loves me. Why is it that the backup singer sitting behind them the farthest off stage right, showing her promise Land. Wearing a skirt that was way too short to come out on stage. But during the whole time her promise land was being shown. you could see straight up between the child's legs and Ernest ain't Miss A beat, he was looking too while Kandy was singing to the audience he was feasting on something else. Shut my mouth

Hi Edee,

It looks like you and your daughter had an awesome time; especially based on Day 1 and Day 2 videos! I am inspired by Festival at Sea cruise, to surrounded by people that look like me in a luxurious environment, stopping at ports of call that are beautiful and inviting is wonderful. Not to mention the onboard entertainment, movies and more.

I will definitely plan to check out Festival at Sea cruises going forward, thanks for sharing! 😊
