Hubby and D13 dream of their queso.  Literally.  Ever Mexican restaurant we go to, they compare it to La Bamba's queso and none can compare yet.  And you got the fried ice cream!  I don't know if I am green with envy or really excited that you went! 😄

+1...but I must admit, that other place we found in South Beach (Tequiztlan) had pretty good margaritas too.

I just need everyone to know.. I live 7 minutes from La Bamba in plantation.. I eat there at least once a week and have been going there for the past 25 years! I am so happy all the people on this blog have found it and love it too!!

LOL!! I swear I wasn't trying to make you jealous!! I am 32 and literally have been going there since I was 7.. The one in plantation is like a little family restaurant and I never thought so many people while on vacation would want to go there!!! I just like that everyone on here loves it as much as me!!

So....we went to see the show in the aqua theater and I ordered myself a pina colada.  There was a broken chair next to me that everyone kept trying to sit in. My husband and I had to keep telling people it’s broken.  An elderly gentleman came and my husband was trying to tell him it was broken and the gentleman couldn’t hear so hubs starts using hand motions  and whooooosh...there goes my nice, new and very cold pina colada all over my lap. 

I had just enough time to race back to the room, quick change and brought a towel back with me to sit on because my seat is now also full of pina colada, but there was nowhere else to sit because it was a full show.

What an amazing show!!!!!! The way they manipulate the pool to have water, not have water, etc.....just amazing!!!!

To pay back hubs for spilling my drink, I lied and told the “bearded lady” it was his birthday. The pics are blurry, but it was so worth it! 😂🤣😂

Yesterday was our first port day.  We chose to take a taxi to Mullet Bay Beach.  I was going to go to the beach at Holland House, but after hearing talk of the water there failing toxicity tests I didn’t want to chance it. 

Mullet Bay Beach was absolutely gorgeous.  The color of the water there is something out of an advertisement.  

We ate at Rosie’s snack shack there.  Two chicken and rice platters, an order of fries, a beer and a soda cane to $24.

Some catamarans came and anchored for about 30-45 minutes.  We scored free rum punch from their staff because their people weren’t swimming out to where the cooler was. That was a win!!

We snorkeled and saw a few different kind of fish and some crabs.

We have only had one other ship docked with it’s there...MSC Seaside.

I will definitely let you know.

I love my cabin. It was very spacious. All the suites amenities come with the cabin. I was amazed with my views. I opened the curtains at night and looked at the sky. It was thundering and lightening one night. I tried to capture the beauty of my new lense (thanks @twangster). You are going to have a blast.

Our next port was Puerto Rico which is one of my favorites.  We did the Rainforest Drive excursion.  We had an excellent guide and the Rainforest is breathtaking.  Guess what???? I even had time for my pina colada at Barrachinas!!! 

Hubs and lil guy continued back to the ship while I browsed for souvenirs.  Suddenly a torrential downpour came and I was soaked.  It was so heavy it was hard to see.

Last port stop was Labadee.  It was a normal beach day, beautiful day with no rain. Hubs and lil guy did the aqua park and we somehow managed to miss the bbq.  I was waiting for them to finish the aqua park.  We walked over at 2pm and everything was gone already.  We stayed in the Columbus Cove area.

Since we’ve personally last been there, they added beach swings and some more cabanas.
