Sorry it was raining, but a good excuse to have a relaxing day.

San Juan is a beautiful city and we have had a lot of fun there in the past.

Our hours there were really odd, we got in early and were gone by 1PM so it was not a great day, but again this was not the reason for going on this cruise.

Another day same as the last few.
Up at 7, workout, go to breakfast, go to trivia.

After, trivia, we head off the ship, going to Labadee, Haiti; this is the island that is owned by Royal Caribbean. Royal Caribbean International has contributed the largest proportion of tourist revenue to Haiti since 1986, employing 300 locals, allowing another 200 to sell their wares on the premises for a fee, and paying the Haitian government US$6 per tourist. All of this according to the daily newspaper.

[Continued from previous post]

We go to the beach, walk around, and take a few photos. We went to the Buffett area and had lunch (BBQ ribs and chicken), then we went shopping for a bit, then back to the ship.











The shopping area was a little over the top, it was every bad pun that you have heard, while on a cruise ship in port. They hounded us, and they all sell the same crap, there had to have been over a hundred shops, way more than is needed.







We came back on board the ship, and to the cabin. We caught up on the journaling and watched a little TV (David napped) before we headed up to the Diamond Lounge for drinks and snacks with J&M, P&B, C&D and R&J.

[Continued from previous post]

We headed down to dinner. It seems like service is slower and slower each night and took 20 minutes before our orders were taken.




David had the caprese salad and garlic soup.




I had the caprese salad and the arancini fried rice balls.


The garlic soup was the best of these.

We split our entrees, Garlic Tiger Shrimp, Steamed Rice, Seasonal Vegetables and herb butter.



Filetto Di Maiale Arrosto con Salvia, slow roasted pork tenderloin wrapped in prosciutto and sage, Provolone potato bake, broccoli, carrots and a truffle reduction



Lasagna al Forno, Baked layers of egg pasta with beef Bolognese and cream sauce.



We had a couple bites of a few of the desserts (everything on the menu!).



Tiramisu – Creamy mascarpone cheese, espresso – macerated lady fingers and a hint of Kahlua liqueur



Desert sampler – Royal flourless chocolate cake, vanilla cheesecake and elderberry mousse with strawberry jelly



Low-Fat Lemon Yogurt Cake – Soaked Figs and Apricots with Raspberry sauce


Sugar-Free strawberry Romanoff – Macerated strawberries, sugar free vanilla ice cream and coconut crisp



Sticky Bread and Butter pudding – Carmel sauce and Vanilla Ice Cream



We left early so that we could come back to the room and change to go watch Argo (Marylou, David & I). This was a very good movie, even though we knew the outcome we were still anxious and nervous.

This invitation was waiting for us…


We set our clocks back an hour and went to bed.

Sounds like another nice day. Those plates from the buffet were piled very high!

The locals selling their wares would drive me crazy. Islands are supposed to be wonderful and relaxing.

I love that you tried all the desserts

Oh it looks fun!


So did you like Labadee at all? Carnival's private "island" was like that but we actually really liked it as opposed to Castaway Cay because I liked having different "brands" of food and stuff

I was really turned off by it, I would not even go in any of the places after the first few.

I had a bite of everything and double taste of the tiramusi

The beach was some of the best, and it had a roller coaster, zip line and a private beach for the upper crust people lol, suites and penthouse.

I have been there three times I think and it is nice, laid back, and if you stay away from the flea market stuff you are good.

That port looks great! Love the look of the hills in the background.

And what awesome food porn. The desserts look amazing.

Lovely sunset shots, Brandi. They are really stunning.
