LIVE - Adventure of the Seas - July 17, 2021


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

We've arrived at Freeport, Grand Bahama. As you can see, the Port of Freeport is more industrial than the Port of Nassau. I have a day pass for the Grand Lucayan Beach Resort (independent excursion, not RCI's). We have an early all back onboard time of 3:30 pm. Resort recommends giving 2 hrs prior to back onboard time, which is 1:30 pm. Doesn't leave much time at the Resort. I'm going to have to engage in "speed drinking". (Shut up liver, you're fine).

This cool model of our Adventure of the Seas was being displayed in an athwartship passageway on deck 9 (my deck).

 

The Logo Store sells smaller models of the AOS. I'm thinking of buying one and starting a tradition of collecting a model of the ship for each cruise I'm on. I have a nautical-themed study/den at home (shocker right?), so these cruise ship models would look good there.

I have one for each ship as well, but for me it is just a few ships.  Given your schedule, your den is going to fill up fast!   :)

Wow you headed out early. We plan on being there around 10. Let me know how it is. I heard the bar doesn’t open until 10 or 11.😱

 

The horror! 😳 Let me do the math. Bar opens at 11 am; have to leave to get back to the ship at 1:30 pm, so that leaves 2.5 hrs of "drinking time".  Looks like it'll have to be "warp speed" drinking. Engage Scotty.

 

Btw - I'm still onboard AOS (in the Windjammer having breakfast). I don't think they've opened the gangway yet. I've got to go down to Guest Services and get some cash ($) since the taxi drivers only accept cash. 

 

See you at the Grand Lucayan!

 

Update: the Captain just made the announcement that the gangway is now open.

It already has with ship-related framed art and large photos. It has "bled" into my MBR and hallway!

I have one of those models for each ship that I've been on.

 

Ditto.  Our Oasis model is significantly bigger than the others.  Obviously made to a different scale.  No idea why.

Same here. My Oasis model is larger than my Allure model by quite a bit.

Please post us some pics, I am interested in seeing it

 

I will. Wi-fi wasn't working inside the lobby & restaurant, but it appears to be working now out here by the pool. Here's your first pic. The lobby at the Grand Lucayan Beach Resort;

Awe shucks @MorganClark ... While you're packin' to go home, I'm packin' to set sail in just a week!  Time to kiss your rack (err Rat) good-by.

See the source image

 

Ouch, rub it in! That-s o.k., this has been a fantastic cruise! Kudos to Royal, Adventure of the Seas, her crew & hotel staff.

 

I think that's why it feels like the cruise went by in a snap. Because  I am having such a great time. On my first cruise with Royal, I can easily say that I'm very, very impressed. I'm glad that 6 out of 7 cruises I have booked this first "season", is with Royal and the other one is with Celebrity - owned by Royal.  Celebrity Edge, Oct 2-9, 2021 - my next cruise out of Port Everglades, Fla).

Yeah, those Oasis class ships are behemoths,  even when they are models.

True, but it's just the Oasis that is huge in model form.  I also have an Allure model and a Symphony model (will get a Harmony next spring) and the other Oasis class ships are the same scale as the rest of the fleet that we have.  Bigger yes, but proportionately so.  Oasis is a lot bigger...way out of proportion when sitting on a shelf.

Just popping in to post our formal night pics at Giovanni’s. It was ok….hubby liked his steak. My pasta was ok..i would probably skip this the next time but the dessert was really good. I also liked the Royal coffee.

Awww, naww about the carbonara! It is a favorite for me... was it served cold? Was the egg not runny? Was the pasta mushy? Inquiring minds....

Definitely Dog and Duck in the UK,  maybe duck and dog is ironic ?

My hubby tells me Dog and Duck can be the rhyming slang for f***!  Only useful in the UK and specifically London 🤔

I'll try and do a LIVE thread like @HBCcruiser did with this cruise. Until you can get onboard Edge, you can live vicariously through me.

Got to also check out the front of the ship before they closed it due to wind. Not sure why one of the pics is upside down lol

I think that portion of the front of the ship is ALWAYS CLOSED OFF(Safety Concerns)  because of copycats trying to take pictures and not wanting to see an accident.

I had to wait to get back on the ship to post the rest of my pics from the Grand Lucayan Beach Resort. The Wi-fi at the resort was wonky.

that is not AoS.  I can't remember ship it is but I walked by it many times in June on my cruise.
