At around 7am we got a call from room service and they told us that our food was on the way. We already had our tip money ready, and everything. Then a few minutes later he came in, we told him to just put it on the floor, since my mattress was blocking the way.
Let me tell you something. DO NOT GET ROOM SERVICE FOR BREAKFAST!!! It was horrible!!! On top of that they forgot half of the order, then again that was a good thing, because the food was truly awful. The eggs, what eggs??? They looked more like a cold puree of something yellow. Hash brown, dear lord, cold and burned (how is that possible???). I think the only 3 items that were good were the coffee, hot tea, and one croissant.
Well and the fruit was good as well.
Our neighbors were in the balcony talking and what not. The one thing is that they did talk very softly, I have to give them that. Here is their daughter, I genuinely feel sorry for her. Having to grow up with that amount of smoke will surely have an impact on her developing lungs, what a shame =(
I noticed that as we pulled in at a very low speed the ship was rocking substantially. Definitely the most that I have ever felt the Allure or Oasis rock, I guess it came from the wind hitting the ship from the other side.
What an amazing Shot! Here is to me shooting random pics, Cheers! LoL
I have been to Labadee 3 times, and this was the first time that I saw this kind of welcoming. They had all these jets skis, boats, and even a parasail going around and making noise. It was a lot of fun, but my wild guess is that they do this to increase the revenue with all the shore excursions that they offer. I actually wanted to try the new sail boat that they have, which by the way is gorgeous (I have pics later), but it was simply too expensive to justify it.
How cool is that?
And there you have him. I am almost sure this is the only pic I have of him.
I guess at one point I realized that my camera sensor was dirty, and got one of the new cleaning sticks that I had just gotten for this cruise. Let me tell you, these things are amazing. I highly recommend them for those of you with mirrorless systems. No liquids necessary or anything, just two swipes and the sensor is like new!
After they tied the ship, and cleared it, we headed down to the gangway.
All the food for our stay there.
Close call with the truck in front of us.
I am really puzzled, and I don’t want to be insensitive. But I wonder if those sailboats are for pleasure or fishing. They seemed to be in some kind of race. I say that because they kept zig sagging like the regattas do.
Some rust showing.
Ain’t she a beaut?
I told her, that we should start walking there. She agreed since we wanted a good spot on the beach.
By the way, I hear that RCCl nearly doubled the prices of the cabanas. I cannot verify that as I had never booked one. But this is from a trusted source. I know they are around $500-$600.
The walk was around 10-15 minutes.
We decided to set up our umbrella all the way at the end, buy the new beds that they set up. One of the chair assistants offered us chairs much closer to the kids area. I told him that I wanted to be all the way at the end of adrenaline beach, I was surprised that he walked with us all the way there to set up the chairs. This time around we brought the exact amount to tip him, but I ended up giving him much more since he had to walk so far. Just some advice, bring exact change! Whenever you ask them for change, they say they don’t have any. I saw plenty of people giving them a big bill because they did not have any change. I think I said the same thing in our Allure review.
And this is our spot
How gorgeous is this beach?
The waves were quite strong on the other side of the wall.
Maybe it’s the addition of all those beds…
Can you tell how cold the water was?
Notice the shoes? This beach is very rocky!
Chillaxing! I had my new sail boats shirt.
At one point we saw a guy waiving from the ocean, he was pretty far out. The lifeguards were all blowing the whistle back at him. It soon became evident that he was not able to make it back on his own, he was struggling to stay where he was. So they took their kayaks and went to get him.
I guess it was around noon or so when mom left to go get some food. I told her to get her food first and I would go afterwards and get mine.
I was just there enjoying a few drinks, and enjoying our island time =)
Just so you know the beach there is incredibly rocky, it was quite funny seeing people go in the water. I am pretty sure I reported this on the other review as well. My suggestion to you is to get water shoes. I was ok with it, but that is mainly because as kids we would go to our summer lake house and we would run barefoot for weeks at a time. I guess my soles have paid their price already, and thus it did not bother me much.
