I did have a quick question about Rendevous Caye....I know you weren't in the beginner group but we would need to be. Do you have any idea of what I could expect in the beginner group?

They are pretty much in the same area and will see the same things but they just don't go out as far or as long as we did. We went out and down then back.

I'm a planner...this never happens...wish me luck that I didn't forget anything.




We had picked a late day straight flight, since our family is really not a "morning" family, and this always works out nicely for us...especially when Kendra is involved.

We left the house around 9:45am so that we could get some breakfast prior to getting to the airport.

Sakari was so sad to leave her dog at home and hugged him forever. It was like he knew something was happening and kept sniffing the luggage.




We have been driving ourselves to the airport for the last few years (instead of having someone drop us off) and it works out better for us. I just hate depending on others to be punctual. Kendra...she still relies on others to drop her family off and as always, ran into some snags. The person who said they would take her wouldn't answer the phone that morning and left her struggling to find an alternative. Eventually she did, but I don't need that type of stress added to my life.

It was COLD outside. We live in Ohio and it's officially winter. We found it to be colder at the airport than at home...probably because it's out in the open.

We arrived at the parking lot, pulled our luggage out, then jumped back in the warm vehicle until we seen the shuttle coming, then sprinted to the bus stop.



But first some selfies with snapchat to entertain each other...



Then off we went to the airport on the shuttle.



Daddy and Sakari were continuing their fun on the shuttle over to the airport.






Hi Kim!! I've been reviewing some of your posts for awhile now! Super detailed which I LOVE! I always drive myself crazy trying to decide what to do at Port! I'm cruising this itinerary in May. I'm torn between west bay beach or LFK? For the the best beach and beautiful waters, which of the 2 would u prefer. P.S. I'm also from Ohio!! 😄

I'm only on page 13 so far, so I don't know if you've mentioned this or not--what brand is your luggage? Are they carry on size, or larger, full-size?

is this an insider thing? will there be a lot of rocks about. My daughter might like doing something like this.

So, we will start this review out a week before the cruise.

It was a HECTIC week! Anyone who follows my reviews knows that my daughter, Sakari, LOVES to draw. It's her life. She's very good at it. She has been tested the last 2 years and determined to be "gifted" in arts. I'm so proud of her. However, this time around was a little different. I received notice that her name was submitted to the gifted program and they were requiring an art portfolio to be submitted for consideration to the arts school program. She doesn't have a portfolio and I keep a majority of her work in tote(S) that I would have to frantically run around trying to locate some of her best work to submit.

The other issue was, this portfolio was to be submitted on the day we leave for vacation AND she was supposed to have an interview on the day we return from vacation. Mom-panic-mode kicked in.

I still needed to pack and double up on seeing patients for the week and now this.

It was a very long week, but we managed to be able to submit prior to that friday and they agreed to forgive her for not being able to make it to the interview. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. If she's accepted, this means she will get to go to the arts school in 6th grade and automatically be enrolled in the arts high school.

Everyone keep your fingers crossed for us!

Ok, next deadline for that week....Friendship/kindness rock painting. What? Never heard of it. However, there were a few people on our roll call for this cruise that does this and posted their rocks. I instantly fell in love...and thought this was right up Sakari's alley! I showed her and she immediately wanted to do some for the cruise.

We headed out to buy the supplies and came home that night and started painting.



She was loving this new "artsy" thing to do.



We had so much fun that we think we are going to make this an event that we do for every cruise.

This was the first batch, but we did a second batch later in the week and for some reason I don't think I got a picture of them.




Even Kolin, my youngest son, joined in one night and had some fun coming up with ideas to paint.



I guess people have groups all over the place that paint rocks and they leave them in areas for others to find. They either keep them or move them somewhere else. I believe they are meant to brighten someone's day. So, hopefully we would be able to do that for several people on the cruise.

First, I want to say Sakari your daughter is a doll, so cute, and artistic at the same time.

I wanted to reply to Ameliaatsea who had ask a question of what kind of luggage you had? This is just MY response. The luggage I have now (had it for over 20 years (cruised over 25 years)and I really did not need to replace it, other than our cat had got cat hairs on it, and I wanted a NEW set.The luggage is called Ricardo of Hollywood. I don't know if you have a Kohl's, but if you do, they have wonderful sales, and you can save a lot of money on luggage. As I said, I really didn't need a new set, but found out that Kohl's had the same brand that I had from over 20 years ago, and I never had so many people "wishing" they had my luggage. The reason why.............this luggage has MORE compartments/zippers than you will find in the best name brands.

Just MY opinion...I love LFK. It is just so beautiful there and there's a lot of options for the beaches (they have several) and jumping off the 2 story deck, swinging rope, snorkeling and so on. It's just so beautiful and relaxing there. It is truly a paradise. They have added a lot of things since I was there last...like hammocks and swings in the water and so on.

As for West Bay, I seriously have not had any luck with that place each time I have went. The water stirred up, it raining and just no luck getting to snorkel that area even though it is supposed to be awesome! As for the beach, I personally just find it a typical beach, lined with beach bars or hotels. It doesn't "appear" to be anything extra ordinary to ME. I think the attraction to this place is the snorkeling itself. There are a lot of vendors on the beach that will hound you non-stop. I even had one come out in the water to try to get me to buy something before.

What part of Ohio are you from?

Um, I'm not even sure. I'd have to look. I'm sure it's just some off brand luggage. I usually just pick them up at places like Marshalls. We travel a lot and seem to always break the wheels...so they are probably on the "cheaper" side. I believe I pay anywhere between $50-100. They are full sized luggage and pretty big. Of course I always have to have something that stands out so that I can spot it in a crowd of luggage. They are the hard case ones. We tried the soft case and they didn't last long at all. I would say I buy new luggage every 4-5 years. So, that's good enough for me before getting another.

Sadly I’m from Portsmouth. I Actually went to Portsmouth High School. I’m sure you’ll know the town all to well lol . My kids thankfully don’t go there , they go to Wheelersburg.

The rock painting is just something people do all over the world (that I'm aware of) and it's just spreading friendship. I learned about it from someone on our last cruise roll call and we decided to try it. There were quite a few people on my last cruise doing it, but you don't just see them laying around and they are hard to find or come by. We haven't even done any yet for our upcoming cruise. Maybe we should get on that. LOL

Aww, thanks so much for the comments on Sakari. She's my little artist for sure.

FINAL THOUGHTS ON RENDEZVOUS CAYE

I think by now you all can figure out that I absolutely LOVED this place.

It was a beautiful little island. It was nicely landscaped. The palapa huts were huge and had plenty of room with chairs and even tables under some of them.

It seemed like there was plenty of room there and everyone was all spread out. I liked that.

The 2 beaches there were ok and good enough for cooling off. Not a lot to see snorkel wise from the beach, but a few things.

The snorkeling....ah the snorkeling...simply amazing. I don't think pictures really do anything justice. Man was this place awesome! I don't think I have ever been on a snorkeling excursion (or even on my own) where we got to see so much all in the same encounter.

The guides were amazing!

I can't recommend this excursion enough. I would go back in a heart beat.

The ONLY thing that was an issue today was...the wind. Lordy lordy it was crazy. But of course, that's no fault of the excursion, Carnival or the vendors. It has been a rainy week for them and the water was a little outraged, so I would expect it to be windy. It was no big deal though. Nothing could have messed that day up.

The only other thing is the time. They really could and should extend the time. There's absolutely no reason to come back that soon. Seriously!

We pulled up at the island at 9:45am.
We pulled away from the island at 12:26
We had approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes on the island, which included our snorkeling time.
1 hour was spent snorkeling.
I guess if you factor in a 40 minute boat ride there and 40 minutes back, you are looking at a total time of around 4 hours...as the tour said.

Just.not.enough.time !!!!

Highly recommend this place!

Actually I'm really not sure. I know they had something right on the dock, but those could have been restrooms. They had changing rooms on the actual "land/beach". Hopefully someone can answer your question.

Thanks, Kim! Based on your reviews and notes, you made our Magic vacation a triumph. We enjoyed Paradise Beach in Cozumel, CaveTubing.Bz in Belize, Little French Key in Roatan, and Blue Kay in Costa Maya. Each stop was a delight. However, Blue Kay tried to charge us $15 per adult (including 2 drink tickets) instead of the $7 you had written about. I had to mention you and your Cruise Critic write-up in order to get the $7 charge...it was more cost efficient for us to do the $7 charge per person...$21 dollars per family instead of $30...one of the families don't drink at all.

I'm so glad you sound like you had a wonderful cruise and picked some great places to go!

It pains me to know that they keep changing their story about the pricing. I had a long talk with the lady about this and expressed everyone's concerns here at cruise critic. You would have thought that she got the hint but I guess not. It's such a beautiful place to go. I hate that the pricing can deter some from going.


Just know also that the "drinks" also include soda and stuff as well.

Costa Maya (Thursday) was the second elegant night. Convenient because you have to be back on board by 1:30PM...so plenty of time to get ready.

As was said, Costa Maya was the 2nd elegant night. Also, since Friday night everyone is packing to get their luggage out by 11:00PM, (out of state rooms by 8:00AM on Saturday) or are taking it off with them, it would rush to have elegant night on Friday night.
