    Since it's only $49 on Empress, planning on finally booking it!

    So on ours, it's only $77 more for The Key + Deluxe Beverage package than the Deluxe Beverage/VOOM combo for both of us total. Wrapping in the embarkation and debarkation perks plus not having lines, it's looking super appealing.

    KLA got a reaction from Vwjo in What board games would you bring on a cruise?   
    I'll usually bring at least a deck of cards - it makes for a nice low-key night at the pub on the promenade to have a few beers and play a few card games (or learn a new game!)

    I almost always travel with my own Yeti and already have mine packed for my trip on Mariner this weekend. Just make you you do as JL said and don't fill it from the tap and fill a glass to pour in to the Yeti.

    Yep - as far as I know this is available on all ships. 
    It's something I've started to really enjoy - light breakfast with fruit and an english muffin ahead of all the other eating going on! Especially nice if it's enjoyed on a balcony. 
    The promenade rooms are great - it feels like it has a lot more space over the other interior room categories.

    AH! That one is super important - thanks for bringing that up. 
    You have door hangers in your room that you can fill out with your complementary continental breakfast request (or just pot of coffee) to have delivered with a time marked for what time you'd like it to arrive. They'll call your room before they bring it, so I use it as an "alarm clock" often. 
    Edit for clarity - the door hangers are complementary and don't have the room service fee applied as long as you stick to the continental breakfast options, which are marked and coffee is included in that section.

    I mean, I totally can. Ryan and I laugh about this whenever we go to Labadee now. "HEY, WANNA TRY THE ZIP LINE AGAIN?"
    SO... second cruise with my at this point soon-to-be in laws. It had already been kind of a comedy of errors, and now we had our first visit to Labadee and it was raining pretty much all day. We had a 10 am zip line time, and until probably 3 in the afternoon we alternated between shopping around and checking back to see if we could get on the zip line. Eventually, there was a break in the rain and we were able to get going. We completed the practice zip line no problem. 
    Finally, we make the long steep drive to the top of the zip line. It's HIGH. Full of nerves, I quickly raise my hand when asked who wants to go first, because if kept standing there it would keep getting worse. Ryan and I get strapped in, getting ready to leave the rest of our family behind at the top. 
    We get let go and start our decent. For a couple seconds, it's amazing and gorgeous. And then we realize the rain picked up again, and we're getting pelted with sharp little bits of cold rain. And then the WIND picks up. We feel ourselves getting blown sideways, and slowly coming to a stop. All five of us stop very far from the ending platform... in a rain storm with wind and huge waves beneath us. We were later told by our family that the operators were laughing at us before the rest of the crowd made the scary descent back down the muddy hill and in to the beach area. 
    Meanwhile, we're still dangling over the water soaking in the rain. Eventually, the tour operators form a plan and they run in to the choppy water (getting pulled under continuously) to throw me a rope and instructing us to keep throwing the end of the rope to the right until everyone is holding it. After we're all holding it, they take the other line back up to the beach and start pulling us to the end platform. 
    The very first words from anyone's mouth once our feet touched the ground - "You're getting a full refund!" ... 🤣
    So yeah. That was my first visit to Labadee.

    On my first cruise ever on Liberty of the Seas in 2015, I decided to try and bring a banana on shore as a snack to Cozumel (being totally oblivious of the rules at the time). 
    I was with my future in-laws (before husband and I had even gotten engaged, fairly early in our relationship), and all 9 of us had walked off the ship together. As we approach security, a dog walks up to my bag and sits. At this point, all of my future in-laws turn to look at me in horror, thinking I had drugs in my bag. 
    And that's how I learned not to bring fruit off of the ship.

    I mean, I totally can. Ryan and I laugh about this whenever we go to Labadee now. "HEY, WANNA TRY THE ZIP LINE AGAIN?"
    SO... second cruise with my at this point soon-to-be in laws. It had already been kind of a comedy of errors, and now we had our first visit to Labadee and it was raining pretty much all day. We had a 10 am zip line time, and until probably 3 in the afternoon we alternated between shopping around and checking back to see if we could get on the zip line. Eventually, there was a break in the rain and we were able to get going. We completed the practice zip line no problem. 
    Finally, we make the long steep drive to the top of the zip line. It's HIGH. Full of nerves, I quickly raise my hand when asked who wants to go first, because if kept standing there it would keep getting worse. Ryan and I get strapped in, getting ready to leave the rest of our family behind at the top. 
    We get let go and start our decent. For a couple seconds, it's amazing and gorgeous. And then we realize the rain picked up again, and we're getting pelted with sharp little bits of cold rain. And then the WIND picks up. We feel ourselves getting blown sideways, and slowly coming to a stop. All five of us stop very far from the ending platform... in a rain storm with wind and huge waves beneath us. We were later told by our family that the operators were laughing at us before the rest of the crowd made the scary descent back down the muddy hill and in to the beach area. 
    Meanwhile, we're still dangling over the water soaking in the rain. Eventually, the tour operators form a plan and they run in to the choppy water (getting pulled under continuously) to throw me a rope and instructing us to keep throwing the end of the rope to the right until everyone is holding it. After we're all holding it, they take the other line back up to the beach and start pulling us to the end platform. 
    The very first words from anyone's mouth once our feet touched the ground - "You're getting a full refund!" ... 🤣
    So yeah. That was my first visit to Labadee. 
  24. Wow
