Our cruise earlier this year was a journey cruise, which is a new type of cruise that Carnival started last year. I highly recommend them if you’re looking to do a longer cruise. You start the cruise in one place and end in another. So after 3 days at sea, we disembarked in Baltimore. Yeah, it was kind of crazy going from nice tropical temps to Baltimore, Maryland in February with temps in the 40°s. The day was cold and dreary, but that didn’t stop us. You can click here for additional info. After finally being able to leave the ship around 11 or 12, we took a taxi to the rental car place, rented a car for the afternoon to scout out the city.
We didn’t arrive at port until around 9am so we watched fr om our cabin as we under a big bridge.
Lots of snow on the ground from the snow storm that occurred a few weeks before.
Being a big baseball fan, seeing Camden Yards was something Rob was anxious to do. We drove around it, but we weren’t willing to pay to park. I was, however, able to get a couple shots of it.
We made our way over to Little Italy and walked around looking for lunch.
It was a difficult decision, but appreciated that most of the restaurants put their menus in the window.
We ended up eating at Sabatino’s Italian Restaurante. Food was really good, nothing to blow you out of the water with, but we enjoyed it.
Of course, we had to get Cannolis!
Afterwards, we walked over to Vaccaro’s for some cookies to bring home. The Cookies looks so good, with quite a large selection, I had a hard time deciding which ones to get.
Kind of on the pricey side, but a nice treat.
We drove around a little more before having to get to the airport. We stopped at Fort McHenry. We just walked around the open area outside, since it was $10/person to go inside.
Although we were only in Baltimore a few hours, we enjoyed our time there seeing lots from our rental car.
