Attempt at a Semi- LIVE report from the Adventure of the Seas b2b, Feb 17 & 24, 2013!

Recommended Posts

I want to do a real LIVE thread like Radio does, and he does it SO well!.....but I don't want to disappoint anyone by only posting once a day :o My plan is to post as often as I can, but I will not be on my own laptop, I will be using RC online. I will try and answer questions as best I can, but if for some reason I don't answer your question, I will as soon as I return.....promise. Also, if you have any photo requests, please let me know. As well, I will have an opportunity on turnaround day to enter most cabins......

I will be cruising this time with my DH and our 16 yr old DD :)

Well, it's almost time to return to my favorite ship! We have sailed the AOS every year since 2006, with the exception of 2012 when we decided to try the Freedom for a b2b as my DH has never tried Freedom class, or the Western Caribbean. We had a great time, but we really missed our AOS. Almost the moment we debarked the FOS, we booked the AOS and our first Owner's Suite which will enjoy for both weeks!

We are sailing this Sunday February 17th and we are also onboard for the February 24th sailing. I am involved in both roll calls and am very much looking forward to meeting all my CC peeps in person!

Our travel plans are:

The weather in Toronto tomorrow should be mild with some snow flurries mixed with rain - no issue for take off!

Departing Toronto on Air Canada tomorrow, February 14th at 8:15PM- flying to Miami with an arrival time of 11:30PM. We are overnight at the Marriott Miami Airport.

Departing Miami with AA on Friday February 15th at 11:40AM, arriving in San Juan at 3:15PM.

Checking into Marriott San Juan Resort & Stellaris Casino where we will enjoy an ocean front balcony room for 2 nights before we embark on the Adventure on Sunday :)

Hi Robyn! Thanks for doing this! :D I'm anxious to see if you decided to do Sand Castle Beach while you are in St. Croix. If so, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Don't forget about the sea-glass! :) Have a WONDERFUL cruise on a GREAT ship!

Thanks for all the great responses!! I forgot to mention that I will be bringing my laptop ashore with me at each port so wherever I can tap into free WiFi, I will! It may cost me a Caribe beer.... or 2...lol!!
