Mmmmmm!  Can’t wait for my 11/12 trip and my day at Coco Beach Club.  I am going to have to food train a bit before the cruise because I have lost so much weight in the last nine months, I can barely make it through a kids meal at McD’s now!  😂

I am dealing with a similar thing, lost a bunch after covid started and kept it off.  I am actually worried I will need to train like those hot dog eating folks do before my cruise in December.  LOL

I know what you mean.  I’ve lost 46 pounds since October.  Yesterday, I did a bunch of yard work in the heat and my Fitbit said I burned 3,700 calories.  I ate what I thought was a big dinner, but only got 1,700 calories in for the day.  Not going to sustain my weight that way!

Can’t wait for Coco Cay Beach Club, have it reserved for both my October B2B cruises. Been to Coco Cay a few times but this will be our first at the Club.

Funny, my story is very similar, I am down 45 pounds depending on the day of the week (it fluctuates from day to day).  I do not count my calories for sure, but I do my best to walk 3 miles a day, and I can lose 3-4 lbs if I work on my truck or the yard all day in the NC heat and forget to eat well (I do a good job keeping up with the water part).

Hmm, I like the frosted drinks and just had a breakthrough thought. I don't drink, but they don't cut one a deal for virgin daiquiri, do they? Maybe I can ask for the rum on the side and push it over to a friend. Hmmmm

... 

Virgin drinks are less expensive than their alcoholic versions. They are also included in the refreshment package.

Thank you for the pics, glad to hear you had a great experience! Just curious if you could see how many of the floating cabanas were booked...they seem to be selling out on some cruises.

Today on our side half were available. We were in # 20 which I highly recommend. Out concierge arranged for us to have that one.

I can’t wait — unfortunately our friends won’t have access so we probably won’t visit the lounge very often.  No doubt it will be a regular morning coffee hang though

 

It sounds like you need to hang with a higher class of friends.  😉

So @HBCcruiser, was the overwater cabana worth it?  I've been considering one but can't pull the trigger for just 2 people based on the prices for my upcoming cruises.  I think I'll need to find some friends. 😁

We loved it but had 6 people. If you want special treatment a beautiful setting and are ok with swimming in the ocean,  then yes, especially as cruises get up to full capacity.

Here are a few more pics. Walking on the dock getting ready to get on the Adventure of the Seas' gangway, along comes Adventure's big sister (and the largest cruise ship in the world), Symphony of the Seas;

Once back on board Adventure of the Seas, this is what you see (the Centrum);;

Can anybody guess what animal this towel animal is?

This is a great trip report, I'm really enjoying it.  Thanks to everyone who's contributed to it.  I'm just on page 16 but it sounds like you guys are going to have a fun cruise.

Thanks! Yeah, my phone dies a good job with still pics and as I learned yesterday, also takes nice video. Only thing is, I think I'm "one & done" uploading videos using the ship's & the  island's wi-fi. It took foooooreeeeever to upload. Looks like videos are too taxing on wi-fi.

 

You may be right on the towel animal but I won't give out the answer just yet and see if there's anymore guesses. Thanks for playing.

Well, today (Mon, 7/19) we are back at Coco Cay (btw, I've been asking the bartenders on Coco Cay and what I've been hearing is, is that the local Bahamian people pronounce Cay "Key" not "K").

 

Today, I have a day pass for "Thrill Waterpark" (think many big/tall waterslides & the tallest waterside in North America, so RCI claims). But, I tell you what, even though I have the pass, I may "call an audible" and just hang at the "Oasis Pool" (which has a swim up bar) instead. My body is sore as heck from my jet ski tour yesterday. It was like riding a bronco. I did "catch air" numerous times. But, that jet ski ride was a b-a-double hockey sticks buster (literally). I was speaking in a couple of higher octaves when I finished and got back, lol.

@Akina13

 

Good morning! I'm having trouble finding your post where you posted your e-mail address. I want to add your e-mail address to my contact list. 

 

Would you mind shooting me an e-mail at; 

martycp60@gmail.com? That way, I can get your e-mail address (again). Once I get your e-mail, I'll add your e-mail address to my contact list.

 

Thanks!
