A South African Safari should definitely be on everyone’s travel bucket list.

From Nicole: And they’re off… again! Yep, as I write Alan and Donna are sailing around Hawaii before setting off across the ocean to the beautiful South Pacific. Although this is their sixth time cruising this beautiful area of the world, this time they’re doing it on the 980-passenger Crystal Serenity, which looks fabulous (check out Donna’s video of their suite on Facebook!).


I’m sure they’re going to have plenty of amazing adventures to share with us along the way, depending on the cruise’s Internet connection, of course. If you’re thinking of booking a cruise through the South Pacific, make sure to check out the traveling duo’s favorite South Pacific cruise excursions.
