Are you using "FlyBy"?  If so, how are they working?  I just ordered some for our next cruise in 7 days and will be trying them out.

 

Yes I was. They worked great!

Day 3

 

The Flyby pills worked their magic. Thanks again Sid_9169! We started the day off at the breakfast buffet. I am pretty consistent on getting an omelette at the omelette station. After breakfast it was time for Tito’s and OJ and went back to the cabin for a bit. We getting ready to head into a brief rainstorm which last about 10 minutes. We got to  wittness an amazing rainbow. The picture does not do it justice. The rainbow actually made a full circle but I was not able to capture it with camera.

I've tried a few of these but never heard of Flyby; might give them  a shot for my SO and I's Breakaway cruise in November.

After checking at the hotel we went upstairs to our room. We kicked back for a bit then it was down to the bar for our complimentary drink. We kicked back on the patio and consumed our tasty beverages.

HA HA.... you already answered this....so I looked Hampton Inn up and well....changed my hotel ressie......again...….

 

Your report is the only one that has given me an idea of the costs to transport to a hotel, to the port. 

 

I thank you for that. This is the first time we are flying into FLL.  We are using miles and couldn't get into MIA using them.

 

And yes I am!  Looking to see if you have any posts every dang day. 

 

Oh wait...one answer for Mr. and one from Mrs. maybe?

Today in Roatan we are doing the South Shore Zipline Adventure. This excursion was through the ship with a cost of $99. We had to be down on the dock at 9:45 am. We were down in plenty of time to join the mass of humanity gathered on the dock.We did not have any problem finding our gat hering place. There we plenty of tour guides with sign describing what tour was what. As the tour guide takes your ticket they put a wristband on you to make sure you are in the right group.

We waited for about 15 or 20 minute then we were we off to the van that was waiting in the parking lot.2019-04-29_19-24-09_221.thumb.jpeg.b8b5b7234d8de310dee129337adf9748.jpeg

 

It was a little chaotic getting out of the parking lot. Their is only one driveway in and out to the main road. With all of the tours that we leaving at 10am it was quite crowded. Our tour guide Angelica did a great time keeping us entertained. She told us a lot about life on the island.

The drive takes about 20 minutes once you leave port. Along the way you get some good views of the water.

Once you get to South Shore Zipline they go over the do and don'ts safety wise. We were soon harnessed up and ready to go!DSCN1262.thumb.JPG.a6c4373e8a331366ce5cade10f3626ae.JPG

 

There are 12 different ziplines to go on. The first one being the slowest and shortest. That way you get used to how you slow yourself down.

 

You are treated to some great views.DSCN1279.thumb.JPG.c1b5b91bf769e62a261f9a5965a74bf1.JPGDSCN1276.thumb.JPG.0923ad7a8eee64694863b989dcc56ff5.JPG

We did a total of 12 ziplines. I would say the time zilpining is about 2 hours. The staff is friendly and they stress safety. At one point they asked who wanted to go upside down. There were about 6 of that volunteered. When you upside down, you go with one the guides. I knew if i didn't do it i would regret it later.

Soon it was time to head back to port. It was nice to get backed in a air conditioned van. Being from Phoenix, AZ we are used to the heat but with out humidity. I snapped more pics on the way back.2019-04-29_21-43-47_309.thumb.jpeg.c3a7431305e95c6434748f748ec14b1d.jpeg2019-04-29_21-45-52_252.thumb.jpeg.486bce4d4c70554ddd3939e4483b10f8.jpeg

We were soon back at port and we did a little shopping. We did find this cool little place where  everything they sold was re- purposed.Even the shopping bags they put you merchandise in were made out of used newspapers. Everything they sold was made on the island.2019-04-29_23-11-46_727.thumb.jpeg.286e0c4d9592f98eb01748601ec7b0c8.jpeg

We did Cagney's but I have no food porn from there. It is kind of dark in there and i didn't feel right about using the flash and disrupting others. After dinner we did Rock Of Ages. We really enjoyed it. It was funny to watch the reaction of some of the others around us when it came to some of the subject matter. We did see some people leave while shaking there heads in disbelief. I wondered what they thought the show was about?IMG_0088.thumb.JPG.fa5b6bec3fae226c1c9173927757696a.JPG Walking in and seeing the set pretty much explained it all.
