Did any of you happen to get the 15-drink-coffee-card (for $31)? I'm wondering if cafe promenade was charging 2 punches for grande drinks, or 1 punch. I've read conflicting information and Adventure seemed to be one of the 2-punch ships the last I read (which really makes no sense, since then it's more expensive to use the card than to pay as you go). I know I can just wait until I'm on board to find out and purchase the card then, but if I wanted to get a beverage package instead, it's cheaper to do that beforehand. Thanks!

Haha. I'm sure your friend/future cruiser is very appreciative of everyone's diligence in trying to gain insight into the new Deck 11 cabins.

No one I know has the 15-drink-coffee-card, so I’m afraid I can’t help with your 1 punch vs. 2 punch question. I am glad I purchased the Refreshment Package when it was on sale 6 months ago. I’ve used it for lots of bottled water, iced coffee, Diet Coke, and a couple of non-alcoholic frozen concoctions.

Day 5 - Curacao

Today in Curacao we went hey skiing around an outlet and snorkeled above a ship wreck! Ship wrecks are always so incredible to see because there's always a lot of dishes living there and some really cool coral growing off of it. Anyways I took a jet ski with my girlfriend Rachel and I went pretty fast The fastest I got going was about 50 mph!!!!!! Rachel loved that I'm sure. For the second half of the jet ski tour Rachel drove the jet ski and I did convince her to get it going to 40 mph!!!!!! Then Rachel and I had a great time at the beach afterwards and caught some great waves while renting surfboards. (We can't exactly bring our own on the plane.) Then we headed back to the ship, hit the Flowrider as usual and the water slides and later that night Rachel and I gazed under the stars in the hot tub to finish off the night at 1:00 am!!!!!! Make sure to check in tomorrow for Aruba!!!!!!

Does the refreshment package include things that can be taken off the ship, like vitamin water or juice?

Day 6 - Aruba

Aruba is now one of my favorite islands for 2 main reasons: Its HUGE and the beaches so amazing. They all have that bright Caribbean sand and that satisfying light blue Caribbean water like the others. Aruba has some really fun people as well. We chose a catamaran and snorkeling excursion here and my girlfriend Rachel and I found a huge school of fish at the first site. There must have been millions of them. There were so many that every now and then you could see a wall of fish and you couldn't see the other side of it!!!!!! The next site was a shipwreck. In fact, it is the largest shipwreck in the entire Caribbean Sea. Me and Rachel drove down and actually sat on the shipwreck. After that, the catamaran took us to a beach where we all got free lunch and some time at the beach, so while everyone else kind of did their own thing, me and Rachel decided to rent a paddle board, once again not very easy to bring your own on a plane, and had a lot of fun in the water!!!!!! Afterwards, we headed back to the ship and passed by some really amazing beaches (pictures below). On the ship we hit the Flowrider and waterslides, as usual. And we also went to the helipad after dinner and the winds were so intense!!!!!! They actually we're almost pushing us over so we were all holding on to benches!!!!!! We then went to the Pool-side disco party after that and had a ton of fun there. That's all for Aruba, see you tomorrow for another day at sea!!!!!!

(Reviews are usually posted the day after they take place and I will try to get to as many of your comments/questions as possible.)

Just bottled water. You could probably put the fresh squeezed OJ in a container yourself and take that off.

I just stopped by Cafe Promenade for my afternoon iced coffee and asked the server about “punches” on the 15-drink-coffee-card. He said it depends on the drink, but usually anything in the “Tall” (12 oz.) cup is 1 punch; drinks in the “Grande” (16 oz.) cup, or “Venti” (20 oz.) cup are 2 punches.

Also, a couple of times on this trip I have been able to get cans of diet soda with my Refreshment Package at Cafe Promenade and the Blue Moon (VCL).

Thanks for inquiring on my behalf, that was really nice of you!
