The Compass' show "Pets at Sea"; any idea what that actually is?

 

It’s like Build A bear. Make your own stuffed animal

Well, that's not what I was picturing 🙂  I was picturing being able to cuddle with actual pets. Darn 😄

There is a shuttle near the  entrance that takes you to barefoot. 

 

A great perk after making that long trek down the pier. 

 

Their is a station to sign out towels right when you exit the ship, but if you are st barefoot, they are available there. So Save yourself the extra baggage For the walk

I believe this refers to the "build a bear" that is located on the boardwalk. Kids can create stuffed animals there ($).

Beverage options. Just In case you aren’t hot enough after the walk down the pier with your towels and bags, and you want to add the weight of a 10 pound  coconut or pineapple 😂

Totally miss the umbrellas. 

 

I bet. On a day like today, the shade was a welcome reprieve 😎

Hmmm thanks for pointing that out. My mistake. Still wonder how those people got out of the aqua theatre 😉

I wonder if they weren't passengers, but possibly staff/crew of some sort? Dunno. I've heard that those that miss muster will be required to do an individual one on their own in the next port. That is reports I've heard though, not my personal experience. It's always one of the least fun things to do your first few hours onboard...but a necessity.

Thanks for doing this. We were on Allure 3 years ago and again in 2 weeks. Hoping we get our cruise moved to western.  How is the internet working for you? Seems to be pretty good. Did  you pay for the VOOM?

Hey Niksmom630..... someone told my husband that the depth of the pools in the Solarium are only "knee deep"...can you confirm that? Surely not.

I am on the next sailing. Looking at the forecast it looks like Dorian will be a ts and not a hurricane but eta for south Florida is Sunday at 2 pm. Please keep so updated of you hear of any changes to your sailing. 

 

Enjoy the the rest of your cruise.

Chris, I just found your report. Thanks so much for posting. We are still 3 1/2 weeks from boarding Ovation and this helps a lot. Waiting to see those shrimp in Cozumel. 😃

We have two. It would comfortably fit 4. I would say that these loft suites are pretty much 3x what we would pay for an ocean view balcony on a 7 day sailing. The price we paid was ridiculously low. The perks of being willing to roll the dice during hurricane season, maybe as well as most kids back to school? Or maybe it’s just my talented travel agent emoji2372.png

I think maybe I would pay something like $ 3250 to $3750 tops during hurricane season for one of those cabins but no more. I would guess you paid more then that right?

Voom for two devises is included. It’s fast.

You and me both. Crazy how a little resort can have some of the best shrimp and guacamole I’ve ever had!

No, much less actually. It was a crazy pricing fluke in my opinion. It was pretty close to what I have paid for a standard Oceanview balcony on Oasis class ships. Why I said it was my one and only CL Suite. Kind of like the $18 dollar a day drink package. 🤣

I will. Think tomorrow we will have a better idea. The forecast today for Labadee was thunderstorms. We had not a drop of rain and sun all day 😊

No. No pool In the Solarium that is knee deep. That would be the kiddie pool in the splash zone maybe.

Dinner tonight was room service 😊 followed by staring at the horizon with beverages. 

 

we were just wiped out. 😂 that’s what happens when you are a sunrise person.

On the last day of our last Allure sailing, I discovered one of the “wonders”

Picked up a map at guest services, so I’ll be off on a a little scavenger hunt at some point this week to find the other 19

More like waist deep. They are more of a "cooling off" pool and not a swim pool.
