  1. We fly Saturday and cruise out of San Juan on Freedom on Sunday. Our first cruise without the kids! Have a fun week!
  2. Quick question about the sushi class—was all the seafood you used cooked? My son would love to do this, but wouldn’t want to eat raw fish. Thank you! And great review!!
  3. Did I read that correctly? You’re cruising again in late September? We shove off on September 29 from San Juan on Freedom of the Seas. Our first kid-free cruise!
  4. I thoroughly enjoyed following along on your extended cruise. We have a son Owen’s age, and he said this cruise would be his dream come true! Safe travels home and all the best to you guys—you seem like a great family!
  5. The ports and excursions are my favorite parts of a cruise—I love the planning! When we choose we try to choose different types of excursions in every port so we aren’t just doing the same thing in a different place. That being said, snorkeling seems to make its way into many of our excursions. I agree with many comments above—nine times out of ten you will have fun no matter what because you are somewhere new and different. So when you pick something, stick with it and know that next time you cruise to that port you can try something else. Any excursion is fun because no matter what you are getting a taste of that country.
  6. I second pcur above on the Apple pie dessert. I had it on Adventure. Not the regular Apple pie with raisins in it—that was horrible. I had that awfulness on Oasis. But the Apple pie that is like a purse, kind of open on the top. I got it every single night, except one night I got the baked Alaska because I love that too, but my husband ordered the Apple pie that night so I could at least have a bite! So so good. For meals I really liked the spaghetti bolognese, chicken Parmesan and the fried fish with jasmine rice. We ordered extra bowls of the rice! Something about it was just so good. So simple but delicious.
  7. Have a wonderful cruise! Can’t wait to hear all about it. I love your live reviews!
  8. We went to Good Hope Estate when in Jamaica (Falmouth) and had a great time! We did the river tubing and adventure falls. There are several choices for activities—just look on their website. We did ours through Royal Caribbean so check your cruise planner too for excursions to Good Hope. I think the company that sponsors the excursions is Chukka Caribbean Adventures.
  9. I missed this review way back when you wrote it, believe it or not! I’m so glad you had a successful and fun cruise! And wow, I’m honored to be mentioned in the review, and thrilled that I was helpful in your planning! We have taken another cruise (on Adventure) since our Oasis one, and it was just as wonderful for our GF daughter the second time around! Happy traveling....
  10. Hi all! We are looking at a cruise leaving San Juan for the ABC islands in September 2020 for our 25th anniversary. I noticed that it’s a kids sail free cruise. We don’t mind kids, we have three! But since it’s just us on this cruise and it’s for our anniversary, I was wondering if a kids sail free cruise in late September will really be a time when lots of families will be cruising? I can’t imagine pulling my kids out of school when they’ve just started in September. Having been on a spring break cruise with a billion kids on board, I can only imagine what a kids sail free cruise might be like. But is it like that in September?
  11. My daughter has celiac disease and needs to eat strictly gluten free. We have been on two Royal Caribbean cruises and both were wonderful experiences for her. We sailed on Oasis and Adventure. We ate in the main dining room and in Giovanni’s. She was treated like a queen and ate the most amazing food! She loved ordering ahead. It made her feel more secure. The Windjammer was able to accommodate her as well, but the food there didn’t knock her socks off. She liked Sorrentos for pizza as well. Didn’t love it, but was happy to be able to be a kid and get pizza like everyone else. I would trust Royal completely.
  12. Great review! Thank you! We will be on this itinerary and ship in September!
  13. I hope you come back to the review! I’m really enjoying it, and am interested in it because my daughter has celiac and we will be on this ship and itinerary on September! You do really well reviewing cruises!
  14. Thank you for this review! Looking forward to the rest. I’m considering this cruise for next summer. 😊
