There is more to choosing a cruise now than just worrying about how big your balcony is, how many deck chairs there are at the pool and how many meals you can squeeze into one day.

Greg Latimer takes a refreshing look at something different. Cruising really can be about a novel and new experience.

The photo in question, “ Sunset at El Faro, Mazatlan”, was taken during a Mysterious Destinations research expedition to the west coast of Mexico aboard the Sapphire Princess that used a buccaneer journal written in the mid 1600’s to locate and visit the same areas looted by these English raiders as they lay in wait for Spanish treasure galleons (large cargo ships) sailing from the Philippines and Peru to Panama.

“In a world where most people lived and died within walking distance of their birthplace, these guys were like astronauts,” comments Greg Latimer. “The writer of the journal we were following, William Dampier, circumnavigated the world three times – an achievement even in these days of jet air travel.”

Mysterious Destinations, which guides tour groups into “the unknown and unexplained”, is also are offering a cruise ship based Western Caribbean Expedition with exploration of paranormal sites in Cozumel and Jamaica.
