Itinerary       Pricing       Inclusions


Roseborough Travel has been hosting an Annual Thanksgiving Cruise for over 28 years for a reason... be it no cooking or cleaning of dishes, the opportunity to visit amazing ports of call, or the fun of getting together with a group of like-minded traveling companions. Whatever the reason is, you will not want to miss out on our tradition. Travel roundtrip from DeLand via deluxe motorcoach with Roseborough Travel. The Celebrity Edge℠ marks a turning point in the cruise ship experience. From the incredible new Magic Carpet to the private plunge pools in their new 2-story Edge Villas, The Celebrity Edge℠ is the most refined ship at sea. Aboard, you’ll feel more connected with the sea and the destinations in a variety of spaces ranging from the Edge Staterooms with Infinite Verandas℠, to the reimagined, terraced pool deck that offers even greater views.





November 24, 2019 - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, US

Bright and early, we’ll travel by motorcoach from Roseborough Travel down to the cruise port in Fort Lauderdale to embark on our fantastic Thanksgiving Cruise!

November 25, 2019 - Key West, Florida, US

Ernest Hemingway made wild, colorful Key West his home, and you will want to do the same. Home to modern-day adventurers, artists and poets, the island’s charming Old Town teems with restaurants, bars and unique shops. Add pristine coral reefs, coconut palms and a laid-back attitude that’s truly contagious, and it’s easy to see why so many visitors to Key West never leave.

November 26, 2019 - At Sea

Cruising in Style while relaxing at sea, Modern Luxury Lives here. Today we’ll enjoy our Roseborough Cocktail Party!

November 27, 2019 - Costa Maya, Mexico

Costa Maya boasts beautiful beaches on the Caribbean Sea, which is ideal for divers and snorkelers alike who enjoy exploring the beautiful Banco Chinchorro coral reef that lies just off the coast. History buffs will surely love exploring the lesser-known Mayan ruins, Cacchoben and Kohunlich; meanwhile there’s something for everyone at the new shopping mall, which, while great for shopping, also features a central plaza with saltwater pools and ‘swim-up’ bars.

November 28, 2019 - Cozumel, Mexico - Happy Thanksgiving!

Amid the largest coral reef in the West, this Caribbean island lures anglers, divers, snorkelers, and beachgoers. Fish the flats or head out to blue water to hunt for big game—mahi-mahi, marlin, sailfish, and more. Bring your dive card to witness all the natural wonders waiting below the surface, like neon tropical fish, swaying sea fans, and vibrant coral colonies. Or, go snorkeling to see the show without a dive card. Curl up on the beach in a hammock with a cold one. At Playa Mia, you can even fly down Twin Twister waterslides. Go cruise shopping for beautiful Mexican silver, amber, and other artisanal gifts in San Miguel. Or, hop a ferry to charming Playa del Carmen, on the mainland, and stroll along la Quinta Avenida for more inviting restaurants, bars, and shops. Down the coast from Playa, you can explore the ancient Maya city of Tulum, perched impressively on a cliff, overlooking the brilliant sea and powdery beach below. Cozumel cuisine means fresh seafood. Savor the catch of the day served on a banana leaf, or enjoy it marinated in lime juice, cilantro, onion, and tomato. Of course, this is the place for Mexican classics like tacos, guacamole—and margaritas. This evening, we’ll enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner without having to worry about cleaning up the mess after.

November 29, 2019 - George Town, Grand Cayman

No destination blends global finance with the Caribbean lifestyle quite like the Cayman Islands. This upscale destination offers world-class restaurants, designer boutiques, and duty-free shopping, plus white sand beaches, brilliant blue waters, and teeming coral reefs. Enjoy postcard views of George Town, Seven Mile Beach, and West Bay from the custom-designed Cayman Explorer. You can step down easily into shallow waters to interact with the welcoming stingrays. Launch your snorkeling adventure from a luxurious catamaran. Swim right through the World War II naval vessel USS Kittiwake, now a shallow artificial reef. Finish with leisurely sunbathing and cool cocktails.Swim with the denizens of Stingray City in the crystalline waters of Coral Reef Gardens. After snorkeling with the graceful rays, recharge with an island barbecue on Seven Mile Beach. You’ll shop till you drop in the duty-free boutiques of George Town. Find gifts for everyone—including yourself—like china, crystal, jewelry, antiques, and resort wear by renowned designers. Conch shells were the homes of tasty mollusks. Try Cayman conch in salads, chowders, and fritters. Also sample the rich Caribbean curries here, and don’t miss the fresh produce: coconut, cassava, and plantains. For dessert, have some rum cake.

About the group leader:
Amanda has been going on a thanksgiving cruise since 1999 and has only missed it twice within that time. She has vowed never to miss it again after needing to cook a turkey and clean up a Thanksgiving dinner for 20+ people those two times. So ever since she has spent her days in the sun on board a ship or exploring an island to then come back to a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner cooked the traditional way with all the Turkey, stuffing, and cranberry you could wish for... and for those who are more like Amanda, they still have Salmon and other options too - win win!
