    Zip Lining

    Here's a snippet from a review I posted here a few weeks ago from our early Feb. visit to Roatan. The zip line was way up in the hills & we'd do both again. We hired a driver/guide from Rony's tour. *We first drove to the zip line place we had previously chosen, Extreme Pirate of the Caribbean Zip Line. No one else was there when we arrived so it was quick & easy. It was very fun and we felt safe with a guide going before us, one after us, and even our guide Will joined us. After zip lining we went to AJ’s monkeys & sloths. Please note that this was a different pl
  3. I was in a cove balcony on the Vista which was located in the Family Harbor area, right across the door to the lounge. WORST sleep ever due to banging coming from above all night long, every night. I'm a light sleeper so I'll never get this room location again. Now the noise didn't bother my other family members so if you're a heavy sleeper it might work out.
  4. I have only been on the Harmony of the Seas and had room 9186. Although the view was great & there was no issue feeling motion I would not book it again because of the noise. It is a connecting room and our neighbor was SO loud with his tv that it kept us up at night and woke us up in the morning. So I'd suggest staying away from connecting rooms unless your traveling with people in the other stateroom.
  5. These sloths were in a cage. From what I remember our guide from Rony's telling us, free roaming sloths are only found on mainland Honduras, not on the island of Roatan. From reading past reviews it sounds like you might like Manawakie Park. It sounds a little more educational than AJ's or Daniels (from what I read). Check out all of these places on Trip Advisor for photos & reviews. I'd definitely suggest printing out all your email contacts and the specific names of places that you want to go otherwise the guide might try to take you to a different place based of it bei
  6. Ok lets try this review thing again. Hopefully with no technical difficulties this time:) Background: This was DH & my 12th cruise, about 1/2 with Royal & 1/2 with Carnival. We are 40 yrs old and we left our kids at home this time. We’ve sailed on Royal’s Voyager, Freedom, & Oasis class ships previously. We were looking forward to returning to the Freedom class of ships as that’s what we thought (and confirmed) we prefer the most. We enjoy cruising for the mix of activities and relaxation it has to offer. We picked this cruise based off the date (to celebrate my bi
  7. I just sailed on her in the beginning of February. They were replacing the carpet on the forward stairs. Other routine cleaning was going on. Yes there is some wear & tear, but not enough to make me not enjoy my cruise one bit! The crew, esp. the bartenders & waitstaff were terrific!!!
  8. host - please delete this duplicate post. Sorry, I can't figure out how to. Thx
  9. I contacted Rony's Tours online and got very quick responses every time I emailed. He wanted me to put down either a $60 deposit or pay for the entire balance prior to the date so I decided to pay just the deposit up front & pay the rest on the date of the tour. I got a confirmation of my deposit and easy to read directions on how to meet our guide after getting off our cruise ship. We got off our cruise ship shortly after the gangway opened and met our guide, WIll, who had a sign saying Rony’s tour. He confirmed our name and state we were from when we met him. We reviewed our plan for
  10. Lots of great ideas here! I also have found brining a small fan with me helps to add a little cool breeze & noise.

  11. My husband and I are on this cruise too! Looking forward to it!!! Safe travels
  12. My family of 4 stayed in a Family Harbor Cove Balcony room (right across from the entrance to the FH lounge) on the Vista in 2017. I loved the FH area...lounge for kids to play video games in, easy access to food & coffee, etc. The part that I hated was the noise at night. Constant banging from above the entire night all cruise long. Our friends had an FH Deluxe Oceanview a few doors down & had no noise problems.
  13. I love this post! Toxic fairy i bet you'll look beautiful in your new dress - enjoy your cruise! Last fall I decided to join a gym & focus more on myself. Now I'm only 2 weeks away from celebrating my big 40 on the Liberty of the Seas & feeling great! I'm looking forward to escaping the cold MN weather and enjoying a relaxing cruise with my husband.
