So how was El Cid? Did you book in advance or just show up

used to offer two passes, not sure if this is still the case as it has been a few years since we have been. Both passes could be purchased on the day in the lobby. One was AI for around $50+ and the other was about $20 to use all facilities, including WiFi, with $10 credit towards food and drink. We have done the less expensive one when we have just wanted a few hours off the ship, or after an early excursion, once we were able to do just PAYG. We have enjoyed the location for a few hours but it feels small and closed in for a longer visit.
When we have wanted full AI or longer stay, I prefer to go to Park Royal next door. Choice of several pools, couple of snack bars and inside buffet for lunch if you want to escape the heat. Cost used to be less than El Cid
for AI but I think it is now also about $50. Again purchase in the lobby on the day, pass available 11-6pm. Value depends on port hours, (you can arrive earlier but food and drinks are not available until 11). Both offer very easy day with no transport necessary from International. We have visited Park Royal with young children for this reason.
You used to be able to book El CID in advance (at least full pass and alternative twilight pass) through a couple of brokers but they were more expensive than direct on the day.
