    So glad for your original post -not at all a waste of time!    This is one of the oldest threads that keeps getting bumped up - and yes it has helped many people.  It never ceased to amaze me how many people felt it necessary to throw in their opinion on - what you could have, should have done; or what they would have done differently, better, etc.  Thanks again from so many of us, and glad you are still cruising. 

    Thank you.  Being accused of lying was the worse part... But it was worth it, if people learned from my mistakes!

    That was an adventure that has stuck in my mind since it happened. 

    It’s one reason I’m glad we’re old and don’t cruise with grandchildren any more. Nobody to try to meet up with or worry about. 

    He didn't lose his head or good attitude. That helped. 

    Good times, good times, lol!!

  3. We'll be there next week! 

    Best news is the beer at buffet!! Sucks for the 'kids' though, having to wait that long for slide! That's total BS.....!!!!!

    We have a group of 25 going and wanted to get a cabana... but they've been gone for a long time. Any suggestions? Can you get them on board? At island? 

    Thanks in advance!

  4. True, the ship wasn't that fancy, but everyone was nice and had a great time! From the employees to the passengers! I met a few workers and got to go down to the crew section a few nights.. I remember the drummer, he was black and from DC... I play drums also, so we were talking down below in a barmaids room..  Actually, the DJ took me down... I think he was a Filipino gent..... Great times, the 80's!

    Ok so hope you're sitting down. Not only was I on the Caribe in 1985, I was one of the three photographers. I worked all 1985. Monday we went to Haiti and I took pictures of people on donkeys going up to the Citadel. Tuesday we were in San Juan, Wednesday St Thomas and Thursday Dominican Republic, Puerto Plata. Saved many of the pictures I took as souvenirs. We generally dumped them overboard but I hated the thought of dumping chemicals. Any other questions please feel free to ask. 

    WOW! Did you take our picture, lol?! We got married 2 years after. Been married 32 years now! That was the funnest cruise ever. We've been on about 20 cruises so far. We still have many pictures of formal night, the dance contest, Oktoberfest, etc. I'm sure you took a few pictures of us or our group. We had about 15 people. Oh, and the costume party, lol! We dressed our 'older' friend as a nerd, grease in his hair and all!


    In San Juan, we did the Barcardi tour. In St. Thomas, we hired a driver and did some shopping and touring. In Puerto Plata, I don't remember, lol. And then there was Haiti, Cap Haitian! We got on a cab and went to a beach area. Sad place..... 


    Great times! SMALL WORLD!!!

    My first cruise ever was out of Miami on the Caribe in July 1985 when I was 18 yo. It was my parents and my sister and I in one cabin and although I remember it to be rather small, I dont remember much else except for bunk beds! I remember it as being elegant, sophisticated and oh so grown up...the itinerary included San Juan, PR, Port Au Prince, Haiti, St. Thomas, and the DR. Living in Miami most of my life, docking in Haiti was very exciting for me as I saw my first mountain landscape!! Does anyone remember this itinerary? You never forget your first cruise...

    We did this cruise in Oct, 85! See my post here....

    I worked as a photographer in 1985 most of the year. First stop Cap Hatien, Haiti excursion was up to the Citadel on donkeys. Tuesday was San Juan, Wednesday St.Thomas, Thursday Puerto Plata, DR. Fell in love every week for a week until the next cruise......Fond memories

    Wow, you might have taken pictures of my girlfriend at the time (now my wife!) and a large group we were with! It was 1985, same ports as you listed above! My 'wife' and I won the dance contest, lol! It was during October, I loved Octoberfest on the ship! Free beer and Schnitzel's for an hour!! I would love to be 18 and have free beer again, lol! And be able to dance all night, lol! My wife's older roommates would get upset when she got in at about 2 am, lol!!


    Funny, I just found a pic of us!!
