  1. One last paragraph for ya’. We arrived at Port Bayonne way early, since there was not much traffic. We pulled into the parking garage across the street at 9:00 am. It is about $22 per day with tax to park there, and it made things so easy and convenient for us. I was surprised at how many people were arriving early like us! We did sail past the Statue of Liberty, which was pretty cool and even sailed under a bridge! Today we did self dis embarking. We were told that we could do this from 6:30 am-7:30am. We wanted to avoid city traffic as much as possible, so we decided to be
  2. Onto Coco Cay! At 8:00 am sharp we left the ship and I must say that it DOES meet ALL expectations! It is so amazing there! Flawless sand, HUGE pool, attentive bartenders, GREAT food, tons of chairs. I could start a fan club for the Snack Shack’s chicken sandwich, mozzarella sticks, and funnel cake. They actually make the funnel cake on the spot only when you order it, so it is fresh fresh fresh! We were the only ship in port that day. We snorkeled, hung out on the beach, hit the pool, and the buffet/ snacks. It was the perfect day! Every employee was eager to give directions, ask us
  3. Next, onto Nassau. We had spent a week at the Atlantis resort two years ago, and we had stayed at the Comfort Suites Paradise Island, so we knew how to get a bargain. We booked a room at the Comfort Suites through hotels.com. Each person gets a “free” Atlantis pass if they stay at the Comfort Suites. We were off the ship at noon, at the resort minutes later via taxi, then in the water park a few minutes after that. We never even went to the room. We saved a ton of money this way, compared to all the people on the ship that booked a trip to Atlantis through the ship. There were FOUR ship
  4. About our ports! we started in Bermuda and chose Hat Trick Charters with Captain Keith. For $75 per person, he took us out six miles to The Blue Hole Coral Reef. It made all other snorkeling that we have done anyplace else seem lame. The trip includes rum punch, drinks, lunch, and is three hours long. It has a perfect score on TripAdvisor and we could tell why. It is a small group only, so book early! There is no great snorkeling in Bermuda off shore, when you see the reef here, you will be blown away. Took a ten minute taxi to the pier and hit Seas glass Beach on the way back to the p
  5. Just got back today, VOOM internet prevented me from posting anything else! Slowest internet at sea. The line to complain at the internet table was long the entire week. Think twice before buying internet on Adventure of the Seas! Here are some things I hope you all find interesting about my week. Theme nights in the Windjammer, in order: American, Italian, Asian, Mediterranean, Tex Mex with Chocolate Sensation, Caribbean, Indian, and Seafood Extravaganza. If you are considering the soda package, be aware you can only find a Freestyle machine in the Royal Promenade and the Wi
  6. We have an inside room on the ninth floor room 9349. Great location and pretty quiet. Three of us in the room. Hubby and I on the regular bed and 15 year old is in a pull down bed that drops down from the ceiling. My son is literally over my head, so I have to slide out ducking down or I would hit my head. Last cruise my son was on a couch that converted into a bed at night.
  7. Movies by the pool this week include captain marvel, the upside, and five feet apart.
  8. The big show this week is a tribute band to Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons. Popped in and saw the second half of the show. Definitely a show for senior citizens and the singers even joked about how old they were a bit.
  9. Voom is very bad this week and we bought the most expensive surf and stream version. All day long there has been a long long line to complain about it. Very upset guests all over the ship. Two hours to send a text and no emails being received at all some people. The Voom lady says expect Voom to be as fast as a dial up service. She offered no compensation, just apologies all day. I said that I was going to post about our conversation on this site and she said sorry it is so slow ...
  10. The last one is of the nightly ice cream sundae bar. There was also a warm bread pudding, but it was on the dinner buffet and the line was very long.
  11. These last two are from the adults only solarium. The solarium has a bar, small pool, and two hot tubs.
