  1. Thanks! Do you have app recommendations? I typically book independent excursions as they usually are a much better experience and value. I’m not sure if it’s because these ports have so many more options and having zero experience in Europe in general but I feel like I’m going to need this full year + to get my plan together!
  2. I would love to do that same excursion you mentioned for Almafi coast, Positano, Sorrento and Pompeii, it sounds amazing and exactly what I’d love to do if I can get over the excursion price sticker shock for four of us (or win the lottery!) 🙂
  3. Thanks! That’s where I’m struggling the most, is trying to get an idea of what’s all possible and realistic to see in a day.
  4. This is a great resource! Thank you for sharing 🙂
  5. Looking for feedback, suggestions and recommendations for the following ports. Our cruise isn’t until July 2021 but figured early planning and daydreaming is one of the best distractions and boredom busters that I know. 🙂 Will be sailing with DH, DS 17, and DD 15. Would like to have ideas on what ports are best for just walking off and DIYing it and which ones we should have planned excursions at. We’ve never been to any of the places we are visiting and it’s a little overwhelming with so many ports and everything sounding like it shouldn’t be missed. Thanks!
  6. Day 8 - Heading home It’s usually bittersweet and a bit sad the morning leaving the ship. In this case, catching up on bits and pieces of the news, I was really looking forward to being back home. We had an earlier departure from Orlando at 11am, and chose to do the self assist departure. From the balcony could see that people were leaving at least 30 minutes before the official announcement was made at 7am. We made our way off the ship, through customs and were in the pick up area within 15 minutes! Our Cortrans shuttle was there and waiting with several people already on. We only ha
  7. More people were watching than waiting! I don’t think many figured out that this area of the ship was not as windy as the other outside deck area on 15. There were no lines for any activities back there.
  8. Day 7 - Sea Day! The captains day 6 evening announcements about a less than smooth ride back to FL was no joke. I’m fine with a gentle rock to sleep but this was a first in waking up due to the movement! By the time we finally got up and out to get breakfast, new accessory bags were available all over the ship. The ship changed the clocks ahead at 2am Saturday, which also really seemed to throw a lot of people off. We attempted to have breakfast at the Windjammer but the lines getting in were massive—the worst I saw all week so that plan was scratched and attempted the near by Min
  9. Thank you! I feel horrible for the state of the travel industry and everyone impacted. It’s been a challenging week and it’s been a good distraction to write this review.
  10. Thank you! Snorkeling is the best, I wish I had the opportunity to go more often!
  11. Day 6 - Cozumel Cozumel is one of our favorite and most visited ports. There are so many great beach clubs and options on how to spend the day. It was going to be a BUSY day, I believe the captain shared that 8 other ships were scheduled and about 28,000 passengers would be arriving. We arrived around 730am and started getting ready to head out for our day’s destination, our favorite of the beach clubs, Paradise Beach. The forecast was iffy with thunderstorms forecasted, we all had our fingers crossed that the day wouldn’t be a washout. This was our first time at the pier RCL uses and
  12. Day 5 - Roatan Continued Needless to say, the random vendor boat excursion was a success, I had a great time and I‘m really glad I went. After returning to the resort, I walked down to the cliff at the end of the beach. The entire beach area was quite busy and there were the occasional vendors walking trying to sell bracelets and massages. There was also quite a bit of security and police officers walking up and down the beach as well. One vendor near the cliff area was selling fish food which was bringing in a lot of fish and the little kids nearby were loving it.
