North America » United States » Florida » Orlando » Disney World July 2nd 2017

We both woke up before the alarm. I went out on the balcony to watch the sunrise and Nikki got ready. Today was debarkation day. After we were ready, we went up to Windjammer Marketplace to get breakfast. We ate leisurely because our debarkation time was not estimated until 8:30. We strolled around the deck after breakfast and then went down to our stateroom to grab our bags and head to the Silk Dining Room to wait for them to call our debarkation group. We waited about 15 minutes and then got off the ship. It went fairly smoothly and we were in our rental car and on the way to Walt Disney World within an hour. We had decided to go to Disney's Animal Kingdom and see the new Pandora area of the park before ... read more

Geo: 23.637827, -83.147212 Today was our last day at sea. Once again we slept in. This was our last day on the cruise. I got up before Nikki and went and sat on the balcony. Nikki packed and then we got ready to go to breakfast. We at in the Solarium Bistro today. Then we were off to play Trivia in Schooner Bar. This was general trivia and it was really difficult. After trivia we went up to deck 15 to get in the pool for a while. It was a beautiful sunny day and it was nice just to relax in the water. Nikki wanted to sit in the hot tub as well. The hot tub is against the window overhanging the side of the ship and it has an infinity edge so it was ... read more

North America » Mexico » Quintana Roo » Cozumel June 30th 2017

This was the first day of our trip that we had to set an alarm. Our excursion meeting time was 8:15 am so we were up at 6:30 got ready and grabbed breakfast before heading off the ship to our meeting point on the pier. We had decided to take a Segway tour of a Mayan Village called El Cedral. After signing our release forms and watching a safety video we got on our segways and started riding through the streets of El Cedral. It was a quaint little village with well maintained Mexican Homes and quiet streets. We spent about 35 minutes on our segways before stopping at a botanical garden and learning about the plants that were important to the Mayans. We also learned some of the history of El Cedral which was settled ... read more

Oceans and Seas » Caribbean June 29th 2017

We took the morning at a snails pace. We had decided that we were going to skip breakfast today because we were so full. We headed down to the Royal Promenade to do a little shopping and then wandered the ship until Johnny Rockets opened for lunch. Once they opened, we had an early lunch. After lunch it was time for Star Wars Trivia in On Air. We did pretty well for only knowing about the first three Star Wars movies. Trivia was followed by sitting on the balcony of our stateroom and then getting in our swimsuits. We stopped by Schooner Bar to play Broadway Tunes trivia before heading up to deck 15 to swim. We spent time there before heading down to get ready to dinner. Dinner was in 150 Central Park. We had ... read more

We had a late arrival into Falmouth Jamaica today so it was another leisurely morning. We had breakfast in Park Cafe and wandered the ship for a while. The ship was due to dock at 10:30 and our tour meeting time was 10:15 so we knew we needed to be off as soon as the ship allowed people to go ashore. They made the announcement at 10:15 and we made our way down to deck 3 and then down the escalators to deck 2 to get off the ship. There were no lines and we were off easily. Our meeting area was jam packed with people and we ended up not leaving the port until 11:15. After departing and turning around to pick up more passengers, we were on our way to Dunn's River Falls.

Central America Caribbean » Haiti » Labadee June 27th 2017

Today I was up early and so I went up on deck to take some photos of the ship without people in them. We were pulling up to Labadee for our first port. After I was done I went back to the room and Nikki was up so we got dressed and went to breakfast. Nikki and I are not huge lay on the beach people so we were not in a big rush to get off the ship. We had breakfast and took some time wandering around the ship before going down to the gangway. After we got off the ship we walked to Adrenaline Beach and found some chairs that were in the shade. It was going to be a hot day and we wanted a place to go where we could cool relax ... read more

Oceans and Seas » Caribbean June 26th 2017

We took advantage of not having to be anywhere early and slept in. I was up before Nikki and sat on the balcony and played on my tablet for a while until she got up. After getting ready we decided to head to the American Icon restaurant for breakfast. Then we went to Scooner Bar to play Entertainment Trivia. It was fun but we are not quite as adept at general triva knowledge as we are at Disney trivia. We hung around the ship for a while not really doing anything but being lazy. Lunch was in in Park Cafe where we had sandwiches and salad. Then it was off to another trivia game, this time in On Air and was Movie Quote trivia. We did pretty well this time but still didnt win. We were ... read more

North America » United States » Florida » Cocoa Beach June 25th 2017

We slept in a little today. Then got up, got ready and went downstairs for breakfast. The hotel had a hot breakfast available. After breakfast we had a little bit of time to just relax so we watched TV before heading out to go to the ship. I knew where the National car return was so I made a left out of the hotel parking lot and soon my GPS was having me turn around. So, I followed the GPS and lo and behold we discovered that National/Alamo/Enterprise have moved to a location at the port. We returned our car and waited a little while for the shuttle to take us to the cruise terminal just a mile away. After going through security and checking in, we had about a 20 wait until they started calling ... read more

North America » United States » Utah June 24th 2017

Today we left for the airport a little before 8, got through security quickly. We boarded the plane, took our seats in First Class and were soon on our way. The flight was uneventful and we landed in Orlando ahead of schedule. After getting our bags and rental car, we were on the way. The radio in our car did not work which we didnt find out until after we were on our way. Also, my phone navigation was not working but, luckily there is one road from the airport to our hotel so it was an easy drive. We checked into the Homewood Suites in Cocoa Beach and then went to dinner. The flight attendant on the plane had made a few suggestions of places to eat so we ended up at Preacher Bar. It ... read more

North America » United States » Utah » Salt Lake City December 24th 2016

Geo: 40.7595, -111.888The hotel offered a breakfast so we went down about 8:30 to eat. Then, we took the 10:00 am shuttle from the hotel to the airport. There was nobody in line dropping off their bags so we breezed through that step. TSA line had nobody in it so we walked right through. The airport was almost empty. We walked to our gate and got there with about an hour and 20 minutes to wait...not too bad. We boarded the flight on time and departed a little late because of a count issue between what the gate agent thought was on the plane and what the flight cred thought was on the plane. Then we were off for our 3 hour flight home.We landed in SLC early, grabbed our bags and Laurel met us to ... read more
