Horizon 8 day November 2-10

Recommended Posts

Just returned from our 8-day with stops in Grand Turk, Aruba and Curacao.    Enjoyable time and great stops.  Our first time in Aruba and Curacao and they were great.   We spend most of our ship time at the back pool during the day and dine in movies at night.    We hit Eagle Beach in Aruba and it was just beautiful.    In Curacao, we did Blue bay through the ship.   Nice bus tour and three hours of beach -  we were there at sunset which was really neat.    At Grand Turk, we just found the free chairs and enjoyed the beach.

 

We did not do the main theatre shows.   We did catch one of the comedy shows and would have liked to gone more, but just enjoyed the movies too much.   We did not hit the piano bar and that is a regret as we usually get in there one night.   We did try the Alchemy bar one night and met a nice couple and enjoyed the hour there.   The drinks there are just not what we normally drink.

 

We do not do the Cheers package.   I usually drink beer and the wife has two or three of the frozen drinks each day.   We always say if we go over or get close to the limit, we can look at the Cheers program.    We were not close this time, so we will stay with that plan.    I like to relax and let the wait staff come to me and I am not sure I could do this if I had the package.   There were several occasions where I would have had another drink, but due to the wait staff being busy, nobody got to me.  I don't force the issue as I am not really in a hurry ever on vacation.    This is just another reason I do not think the package is for us.

 

 

Off to the Panaroma in April!!!

We are on the Horizon in December and was wondering if you did anything in La Romana, D.R.   Or if you noticed alot of people staying on the ship at this port.   Just wondering..   Thank you for your Review.

We stayed on the ship in La Romana.   The back pool was fairly full that day, so I think a lot of people had the same idea

Thank you for your reply.  We will most likely get off the ship,  see the port shops and get right back on the ship.  I figured the ship would be busy.

Thats a shame - We did this same itinerary, and La Romana was our second favorite stop!  We did a river tour up the river and it was, hands down, one of the very best excursions we have ever done.    Aruba was #1 only because it was on my bucket list!
