Sid, you have made my Sunday morning so enjoyable!  I thoroughly enjoyed your Bliss review and happened across your Breakaway review this morning.  Your reviews are amazing!!  You should write a book and include all your cruising "experiences."  I hope you enjoyed your Breakaway cruise and had a safe trip home.  I am looking forward to your continuing coverage of your cruise.

Now, I'm off the ship in Jamaica. I've heard about a place called Scotchies that supposedly has some legendary jerk chicken. I asked around about taxi prices, and was quoted $50

 

I just walked away, discouraged, and started walking back towards the ship. A guy stopped me and said he'd take me for $30 - Deal!... And, we were off.

We arrived at Scotchies in about twenty five minutes or so, and I headed up to the line to place my order... The place has many different gazebos about, and I could smell the chicken from the parking lot.

I ordered the half jerk chicken with rice and peas, and some festival, which is some kind of bread... Also, a Red Stripe and a bottle of water. It came to about $17 IMG_20190214_123635.thumb.jpg.cbf0d8e4241558ee9c8bd014b3681ab7.jpg

Now, I'm going to be honest with you... (*Note: I'm always honest with you) It was some pretty good jerk chicken, but nowhere near the best I've ever had. We have a huge Jamaican population in Atlanta, and there are dozens of jerk centers serving better stuff... Just my opinion.

 

Next, I visited the restroom to wash my greasy hands off.

I'm so upset I had to cancel this cruise.  Have loved reading about it though!

LOL.. alright the two topless ladies in Cozumel and peeing on her hurting foot is the best part of your trip. I'm so glad you stuck with the what happens in Cozumel stays in Cozumel, now worries we won't tell anyone.

 

Your food and drinks look so good, looks that you had a perfect week despite being one of the youngest passengers on the ship. Glad you were able to gain an additional day off before going back to work. It really does help. I got off the ship yesterday and its taken all day yesterday and another lazy day today to get my ship to off ship life back in order to start the next three month cycle again until the next cruise.

 

Looking forward to seeing what transpired the rest of your trip. Sadly when I was in Cozumel on 2/13 we didn't have topless stories, but on our Cozumel bar hop we we had some with us that were also sailing on the Carnival Triumph.

Looks like the TSA "inspected" my checked bag... All of the contents appear to have been dumped out and hastily thrown back in. The good news is that my two bottles of liquor survived. The only other thing in the bag was all of my dirty clothes. I hope they had fun going down that fruitless rabbit hole...

At my transfer station, and with a bit of luck, I'll be home in a half hour... Update: I could eat an elephant...

British people use that word, I believe! I like it--it's very kind of gallant (lol, now who uses THAT word!).

I found myself back on board, and immediately headed to Vibe, for what else, but more heavy drinking.

It's a good thing I wore two patches today...

 

Do 2 patches work twice as well?

I ordered one of their giant (and strong) margaritas with Don Julio anejo and Controy... Just what I needed to top off a great and adventuresome afternoon on my favorite island.

I think we need a Yummmm or MMMM MMMM emoji added to the options...

I'm lucky I even survived that drunken evening, but yes those patches are the real deal.
