  1. I’m in your picture!!! Lol. The picture of the solarium pool, I’m the guy with the sunglasses just to the left of the giant colorful bird (my head is just above the railing to get in to the pool. Haha. That’s funny.
  2. We encountered the same. We had such a great time on this cruise. The only complaints I heard were of people complaining about the weather. Did I spend 10 days in the Caribbean and still go back with a little bit of a sock tan....unfortunately yes lol But the rain did not hamper our trip at all. We had an amazing cruise. I had to laugh at one person that said...”I didn’t come to the tropics for rain”. Tropical literally refers to warm and hot and moist lol.
  3. Just saw this. Reading through now. It’s making me upset. I want to go back. Lol. Sitting at the Houston airport. Back to reality of work. Going back to reading about your trip!
  4. Omg I just looked it up! He was killed last year. Console himself was actually our tour guide that day. If I remember correctly he was a retired police officer or something like that. He was awesome. So sad to hear that. I attached a pic of my friend and Inwith Cosol. Hope that’s ok. I’ll be happy to remove it, this is your Review.
  5. We booked the same tour with Spencer Ambrose while we are there in 2 1/2 weeks. Did a similar tour about 8 years ago with Cosol and loved it. Doing Spencer this time because you travel more on the boat, Cosol drives you to the beach and takes you back on the boat. The Roads in St. Lucia are crazy curvy and i wasn't enjoying the bus ride. I have to say about the mud baths, my friend Emily and I had pretty rough sunburn (mine was on my forehead) and after we applied that mud and rinsed it off....the sunburn was practically gone. It was crazy. Excited to use Spencers this time. One thing that i did remember about St. Lucia was that a lot of people were VERY pushy about buying things and giving them money. Reading your review is getting me so excited for my cruise. I leave for Puerto Rico in 12 days!!
  6. I travel every week for work. Have an alarm with camera's connected straight to the police and fire/CO2 detectors connected directly to the fire department. Also awesome neighbors who keep an eye on my house while I'm gone. Not to worried about that. But i do see how that could be a worry.
  7. Ok so I go to Royalcaribbean.com and everything is in German. I cannot get it to English. lol. My cruise planner is in English but the main pages are German. Weird.
  8. I'm finally caught up! Great pictures and review so far! I have a quick question. You mentioned on embarkation day there was no lines and you breezed right through. What time of the day did you get to the port? I figure it would be a little busier from 12:30-2:30ish....not sure what time we want to go over. We did pay for the drink package so might as well get on early and start taking advantage of it! haha Great start to the review. Looking forward to the rest!
  9. She can correct me but there is a tour called Mad Max Dune Buggies. I actually booked them on my cruise in 2 1/2 weeks! I'll be happy to report back what i think!
  10. In excited! I love your reviews and it’s perfect timing as I’m leaving on the Freedom In 20 days on the same itinerary!!! I didn’t read any yet. Just saw the review. Haha. Can’t wait to read through!
  11. I love that idea! Countdown clock is an awesome idea! I actually had to move the cruise to the 3/29 which will give her a little extra time to get ready for it. Thank you for that idea!
  12. She does have a current passport, so good on that front. I thought the same thing about the shopping, but she is retired and has 2 full months after I tell her to go shopping haha. Good call on saving money....the dilemma lol I'll try to keep it a secret, but might get tough as we get closer! Also, That's awesome your son works on Carnival!
  13. So I have been lucky enough to have gone on a few cruises. Every time I go my Mom talks to me about how she would love to go on one someday but none of her sisters or friends want to go. Soooo I just booked a cruise for March 2020 and going to surprise her with it as a Christmas (and early bday/mothers day) present. Booked the 3/1/20 sailing 6 night out of Miami on the Carnival Horizon (Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Cozumel). I booked us a cove balcony. Her bday is 3/7 so we will be able to spend the day in Miami/Ft. Lauderdale on her bday when we disembark. Cant wait to see her face, she won't believe it! Now the hardest part is keeping this a secret for the next 8 months!! haha
  14. Vote for Cosol here too! Took it a few years ago, very well run.
