  1. Hi all! We set sail in 29 days on Adventure of the Seas! We have an excursion booked through RC for Grand Cayman, and we are going to Nachi Cocom in Cozumel. Does anyone have any relaxing excursion options or things to do in Costa Maya for a party of two? Or is that a port that can be fun just walking around? Any suggestions will be appreciated!
  2. Hi all! First cruise is 78 days away and I can't wait! We have a turtle excursion booked for our stop on Grand Cayman, but we are also stopping in Costa Maya and Cozumel. I want to do at least one beach day, and it looks like the best way to do beaches is to pick a beach club. From some research, it looks like the popular ones are Nachi Cocom in Cozumel and Maya Chan in Costa Maya. Is one better than the other? Are they worth the price? Which one would you pick? Or are they both so amazing, should spurge and do both? This is my first cruise and I want a relaxing vacation, so I figured I would come to those more knowledgable to get feedback. Any thoughts or other suggestions would be great!
  3. Hi all! First time cruiser here. This will also be my first time out of the US, so I'm trying to make everything as planned and organized as possible. I'm not too intrigued by the shore excursions through RC for Cozumel, and saw that some people recommended Nachi Cocum Beach Club. Would this be a good place for two adult first time cruisers? I'm taking my mom on this cruise, and we're looking for relaxing and quiet. Also, for booking, is going through their website the best option? Thanks!
  4. Hi all! You all were so helpful the first time I posted that I am now all booked for my cruise in April! Now, as a first time cruiser I'm reading a lot and watching a lot of vlogs, and one big question I have is if the Key is worth it. Right now I can get it for $24.99 a person. Since I've never been on a cruise, I don't know how good a value some of the things that is offered with the Key actually is. I will say that we aren't planning on doing specialty dining, so the Chop's Grill menu appeals to us, as well as the VIP seating at shows. We will be on Adventure of the Seas, and are definitely considering getting internet for at least one device. I guess what I'm trying to find out is if The Key is worth $24.99 for all the small perks you get, and as a first timer, would it make things go smoother for us? Thanks in advance for your help!
  5. So I'm about an hour and a half south of Charlottesville, and my companion on the cruise is in Charlottesville. Right now, DCA and IAD are more expensive than Richmond. Has anyone flown into West Palm Beach and gotten an Uber to Fort Lauderdale? Is that reasonable to do, financially? We are already planning on flying down the day before so we would have plenty of time.
  6. Thank you all for all of your suggestions and tips!! To answer a few people, the closest airports to me are either Charlottesville (CHO) or Richmond (RIC) in Virginia, and Richmond is the only one with a direct flight. I don't mind layovers, but I would prefer not to go through Atlanta, which is where I would have to go through for Southwest if they have the cheapest flights. Again, thank you for all of your help so far, I feel very welcomed and I can't wait to begin this journey!
  7. Hi all! This is my first post, and I am planning my first cruise. To say I'm overwhelmed is an understatement, but I love planning vacations so I know everything will be fine. I have a couple questions, mainly related to the cruise I plan to take. I'm planning on going on the Adventure of the Seas on a 6 night Western Caribbean cruise April 5-11, leaving from Fort Lauderdale. First off, I've never travelled to a "vacation spot" during spring break, so when should I book flights? Currently I'm looking at $914 for 2 people to fly roundtrip from my location (JetBlue is the only direct flight for me), and I feel like I should wait, but I know y'all are probably the experts on when to book flights. My other question would be what are the best things to do on Adventure of the Seas? I do plan to head to the spa, but are there any hidden gems that people don't often talk about? And lastly, do you have any advice for a first time cruiser? Thanks!
