sadly, no. They said they could do 3-5 days but that 7 was just too long for them. LOL. 3-5 days is way too short for us.

Another great review!   We like the longer cruises too.  We call the 3-5 day ones “practice cruises.”

The following day was Nate’s birthday
and a sea day.
I woke up and headed down to customer service to make sure both our accounts were all set. I wanted to get there before the lines got long.


I wasn’t able to add Nates credit card to his account so I headed back to the room. we could see some ships from our balcony


everybody’s up! let’s go to breakfast.
Nate’s bday breaky:

We made our way down to the Boardwalk.

one of the 2 rock climbing walls

we walked to the very back of the Aqua theater. Such a great view


I went to go use the restroom so I took a pic looking back at Nate

Jenn came out to meet us (Brett was still working) and we ordered these beauties...they didn’t care for the blended mojitos though

we made our way inside just as the Rising Tide Bar was ascending

it was really bad! I have several videos. I actually had to cover my face and hair toward the end because the sand was blowing so badly

Wow.  I have been to Labadee several times and never experienced waves or wind.  It has always been very hot and the water relatively calm.

Keep up the good work, you are doing a great job.

thank you!
In march of 2018, our stop to labadee was cancelled due to waves. We actually attempted to dock, but broke a line. So capt called it off. 

wow! I can believe it! we were really surprised we even docked at all

Fabulous review.  I am so glad I am on the same Allure TA in November with you.  I won't have to take many photos.  [emoji3]

hahaha! I got you covered! I plan to have my iphone, gopro, and Nikon on that one. I haven’t brought my nikon on the last two

The cruise was coming to an end. We docked at Port Everglades Sunday morning with a resounding sigh.

We headed to breakfast in the Windjammer one last time

Brett & Jenn said their goodbyes to us and got off the ship.

Nate & I debarked at 9. We weren’t in a rush since our flight wasn’t until 3:30.


there was definitely a traffic jam going into the terminal

0 taxis available. Security told us there were 7 ships in port and spread thin.

The long line...we decided not to uber because in our last experience there it took forever for the Uber driver to figure out how to find us.

We were at FLL by 9:45 and the taxi cost us $17.

We weren’t able to check our bags until 11:30 so we found a place by an outlet to sit. Nate played his game and I worked on this blog.
Once we checked our bags in and made it through security we went straight to food.


The chips were probably the best restaurant chips I’ve ever had. Whatever they spice these things with is amazing. Nate couldn’t finish his tacos tho. He said they were far too salty (which is weird to hear from Nate).

We still had about 2 hours to kill so we wandered through the concourses and found this neat area full of usb hubs and for those who use the wireless charging they even have several stations for that.

The flight felt like it took forever and then we had an hour and a half drive home so we were home around 9pm Sunday night to our happy puppy.

It was great to get away for the week and do a lot more relaxing than we did on our October cruise, but I’m kind of over the Caribbean I think...only because my eyes are opened to how much more there still is to see in the world.

Our upcoming trips:
Allure TA Nov 2020 Barcelona to Miami
Land trip to Switzerland Sept 2021
Jordan land trip 2022? we’re just in the beginning of discussing this one

I’m sure we’ll throw an easy caribbean in there somewhere

Thanks everyone for following along! I’ll work on the rest of the videos today and posts the links here
