Hate the paper straws.  Was on Anthem last month for 20 days and got tired of the straws falling apart in my drink.  Also, if a can of soda is not cold enough the whole thing will start foaming over with the paper straw.  Trust me on this one.  My solution — just purchased a bunch of individually wrapped plastic straws from Amazon.  Will bring some with me whenever I sail.  I trust that Royal will be able to dispose of them properly when the straws end up in the trash.  Remember that Royal has trash folks who sort through everything.  Hope this is a good solution.  

 

A lot of places on land and the islands are moving to paper straws too. Here is a paper straw that was in my drink in Nassau at Senor Frogs this past Friday.

Some paper straws are not as good as others. Royals suck, figuratively and literally.

This picture is gorgeous!!!  My question, having not be on Adventure before, which pool is this?  Where are the people?  All too busy hogging or finding chairs?  Yikes, I'm a bit concerned about it stressing me out to find a chair or two for our family of four next month.

The Captain said Bahamas Channel.  We will come within 7 miles of the north coast of Cuba.

Robyn, this one is for you, especially since you love trunks. It was a great keepsake of our trip to Paris.  It’s from “The Mother Ship”.  

 

It’s a numbered print, 31 of 101.  The photo was taken in 1978, on LV’s 125 Anniversary of their Champs Élysées Location. The photographer was Jacques Henri Lartigue a renouned Frenchman who passed in 1986.

 

The last of my transgressions. Maybe you and Lisa are meant to meet. 🤔

This is the main pool, the one on the right if facing aft.

The pool was very cold early this morning, so that’s why it was empty. It’s packed now.

A few years ago my family was on Navigator during Easter / Spring break and we managed to find chairs at the pool whenever we needed to - not always 4 chairs but enough to be close enough to the pool for the kids to be in it. There were always plenty of chairs on the upper deck - which is great for sunning but bad for swimming or watching kids!

She says yes, as well as thanks for the associate share.  The large page of print translates to the following. I guess I lost a bit of the translation.

Now please, continue with the photos of drinks, food, and fun.  Jealous back here at home.

The weather is perfectly sunny, and 80 degrees. Tomorrow we are expecting sunny skies at Labadee. No mention of missing the stop.

 

I am sailing on Jewel this week. We docked at Labadee this morning at 8:00 and spent the morning swimming at Columbus Cove. Just got back on the ship; I had to get out of the sun. We set sail for a day at sea at 5:00 p.m. All was well in Labadee. I hope you all have a great day there too!

It’s a mix of strawberry and peach daiquiri - I don’t think it has a name, but it was yummy!!!

Here’s the pool right now. 

On Oasis and Allure it was always walk to wall people. The pool was very busy earlier but still swimmable. Can you tell I’m a pool person? This is where you’ll find me on sea days....😎

Yes, I know that many are changing to paper and I do understand the reasoning.  Just wondering if this will eventually change back - - just like the proposed changes to light bulbs by Congress a few years ago.  That never became reality as far as I know.  Whatever — we will all adjust if need be.  

 

Enjoying Robin’s posts this week just like Mr Funinthesuns posts last week.  Thank you to all who post and keep Cruise Critic going.  I am trying to stay away from that other site so CC continues to thrive.

Wondering why the clocks changes? 🤔

It changes on night one and goes back during the last night. Labadee is Eastern time, but the rest of the cruise is Atlantic. Since Labadee is controlled by Royal, it makes sense to change the time right away.

Captain’s Noon Report states we are off the Bahamas Coast.....my location on FB shows Cuba. Where am I?????

Ocean Boy, this is your job.  Find me.

 

The weather is perfectly sunny, and 80 degrees. Tomorrow we are expecting sunny skies at Labadee. No mention of missing the stop.

 

Gotta go watch the sexiest man contest 😂

 

 

 

The best picture we got of Cuba as we sailed by.

You will notice a lot of white buildings, which seem to be a resort area. 

 

For the person who asked about the coffee punch cards, they did have them for sale, and only one size of iced coffee beverage. We also enjoy the Royal Refreshment package.

As long as the person carrying them deposits them in the garbage, I have no issues with it.

 

As we walked along the promenade on deck 4, I saw black straws rolling on the deck. I picked them up before they could go in the water.
