Hello,

My boyfriend and I are going on a RC cruise in May 2018 to the Bahamas on Adventure of the Seas. One of the ports is Orlando Florida. My question is: would we be close enough to visit The Hard Rock Cafe while in port from 12 am to 9 pm.? We are casino fanatics and would like to go there on our own accord, not with a private journey. Any thoughts and/or info would be greatly appreciated.

If you're talking about the casino in Tampa, that would be a maybe (I assume you didn't mean the one in Universal, don't thing they have a casino).  Its about 2 hours from the port.  So if you want to spend half the time getting there and back, give it a try. But you'll have to rent a car and hope the orlando and tampa traffic is moving, only take one person with a flat tire to stop I4 in both directions.

There's no casino at Hard Rock Universal, Renting a car and driving to Tampa's pretty much your only option.  Now, if you happen to be at Port Canaveral on a Sunday and the ship arrives a little before noon, you might *just* be able to catch the Victory Casino Cruise, but the timing is going to be pretty tight.  They leave at noon and want you aboard 30 minutes prior to sailing, so the stars would have to align to make that feasible.

Welcome to the blog board!

I feel cruise lines calling a port of call "Orlando" is a bit misleading as Orlando is pretty well inland.  The actual city is Cape Canaveral, and it is about an hour drive from Orlando/Disney/Universal.  If you are not taking an excursion then you will need to rent a car or get a ride (private car/bus/Uber/Lyft/taxi/etc).  With the closest casino being in Tampa then that's not worth the drive IMO.  I mean, there's one on the ship so why pay to spend half your day driving to one when you can just hit that one after you leave port?  Also there is at least one in Nassau that is much closer to the port.

Enjoy your cruise!
