    San Juan Debarkation

    @zamboni03 - upon entering the airport after the cruise, immediately go to your right and/or left and you'll see the agriculture inspection station. Make sure to go there first, before heading to check in, to have your luggage tagged as inspected. There's no one at the door to make sure you do this, so some people pass through and go to check their luggage with the airline only to find out they have to go back and get the tags.
  2. This is literally the first time I've logged in in months, and this is the first "live" notification I get?!?!? Good grief! LOL Your "Oasis Class Denier" tag has me LOLing, @JLMoran!
  3. Soooo... how much was the drugs package, and did they get the 20% early booking discount? 🙂

    Adventure OTS With No Blog

    Adventure has the round, hard plastic doors and not shower curtains. I hate those skin-sucking curtains.

    Hooked

    I wouldn't mind Hooked replacing Chops on a couple of ships! (let the flames begin!)
  7. My next RC cruise is an 11 day. The drink package is into 4 figures at that point, so I'll be passing on it.
  8. Given the website issues of late... who wants to be the first person down the waterslides and up in the balloon that's coming soon to CocoCay?
  9. Dang, that made me quickly log in and see if I could get that for my next cruise. Sadly it wasn't offered. Probably would have been pricey regardless, as it's an 11 day cruise! LOL

    Early / Short Day in San Juan

    http://www.puertoricodaytrips.com/free-trolley-old-san-juan/ has a map with route numbers, etc.

    Early / Short Day in San Juan

    I'd also suggest Parrot Club, and the last time I was there we stopped at Cafe Puerto Rico and were blown away with the quality of the food and reasonable (IMHO) prices. Have a meal on the island. It's not like you get the opportunity to do that every day.
  12. Can you PM me the company you used? We'll be there in November and I'd love to do the airboat ride with the family. Thank you.

    Low Carb/Keto on a cruise

    Don't freak out when you get back and you've gained a couple of pounds even though you've stuck to the diet. They use a ton of salt in the food, much more than most people do at home, so chances are you're just retaining water. Water weighs over 8 pounds per gallon, so just a little bit will really "tilt the scale". It will be gone in a couple of days when it's flushed out of your system. Avoid the "bacon" appetizer at Chops Grille, it's covered in a sauce that contains a lot of sugar. I did Atkins back in 2000 and lost over 70 lbs, and stuck with it until 2006. The weight has crept back, but it's taken over a decade (and the addition of 2 kids). I started Low Carb again at the beginning of the year and have dropped 15 so far. Stick with it, it works!
  14. Let me know if the rum tasting is something other than Brinley's - curious as to what other brand are sold there. AFAIK they don't distill on St. Kitts anymore. $39 for the drinks package?!?! That's an incredible deal!

    2019 southern Caribbean?

    I'm doing an 11 day rum cruise on Serenade this coming November that goes to the Southern Caribbean. Ponce, Puerto Rico is one of the stops, and I've not been there before so I'm quite excited! http://www.rumrenaissancecruise.com If you look closely I'm in the background in some of the photographs.
