I lived in Miami when I was in 7th-9th grade. Your sharing is making me nostalgic! I miss Little Havana and Calle Ocho and Medianoches and everything. I love that you loved it!

I wish we had more time to explore there.  It is such a great place with so much to do.  I didn’t get a chance to have real Cuban coffee!

We are in the waiting area at the terminal!!! The shuttle at the hotel would be $6/person but UberXL was $9 for all of us. Arrived at the port with no issue. Lots of sad faces on those departing this morning.

The port worker checking the set sail passes looked at ours that clearly says expedited arrival, squinted and said, “Have you ever cruised before?” Then she sent us on to someone else. We got seated in the right area and we are waiting for the green light.

This week our only planned excursion is the rain forest in Puerto Rico.  Our time was cut short in that port because of the azipod issue so we are doing the excursion through the ship to be safe.

I want you all to know that this is a big sacrifice for me because it most likely means I’m giving up my Barrachinas pina colada.  THAT NEVER HAPPENS!

Little guy has the soda package this week and he’s hoping for a blue cup. 🤞

We don’t have it reserved yet, but we plan on doing Izumi one night.

We’re on board this absolutely gorgeous ship and it’s instantly clear why she’s a favorite among so many. 😍🥰

We checked out Central Park and the Boardwalk. It’s too early to put cash on our account and the rooms are supposed to be ready at 1:30pm.

There is a different vibe on this ship.  The guests and staff are ready for a good vacation.  We already met “new familia” in the elevator. 😂

Our fish is already in the pool...

Lil guy has made several friends in the pool already! So cute! They are racing each other and having a ball.

Dad and mom are relaxing...

Sounds PERFECT! ENJOY! Did hubs ever get the hang of you and this blog? My wife still gives the the "what the heck are doing on there so much" look and we're not even on a cruise now!

Going on our victory cruise in January

I'm guessing that in the future when you think back, that may be the favorite sentence you ever said! Congrats and happy sailing.

Keep an eye out for @CruisingKat(Kathy) she is also on board Allure this cruise (she co-runs the RC Periscopers Group).

i think if you scroll up to the terminal pictures @CruisingKat(Kathy) is there somewhere.
