Just a little background info. This was our 3rd RC cruise. We have cruised 2 times on Celebrity and 1 time on Emerald Waterways. We were very pleased with our Adventure of the Seas Cruise and anticipated to have a great time on this one. We were only Gold ranked peeps on the ship and it was first apparent upon embarkation. We chose this cruise because of timing and we had never been to Key West before. The other times it was apparent is when they had a "private event" in the Viking Crown Lounge area.
We flew into Baltimore the day before and stayed in a cute B&B called 1840's Carrollton Inn. It was very charming and breakfast was made to order and very good!
It was raining most of the day (October 16th), but we still walked around to explore the city a bit. Had fun walking in the rain! We ate a wonderful Crab Cake lunch at the Lexington Market. Since we did not wear our rain gear, we got soaking wet. The wonderful people at the 1840's Carrollton Inn let us use their washer and dryer.
Good location, mid-ship. Plenty of closet space/drawers. Balcony just big enough for a small table and 2 chairs. Bed comfortable. Tiny shower - with a shower curtain and 2 in one shampoo/body wash.
Saw the old ships (in the cold wind) in the harbor. Had wonderful Crab Cakes at the Lexington Market
There is no way to get anywhere without taking a bus. Not at all a walkable port.
Again, another port where you can't get anywhere without transportation.
We walked around and saw the sights. It was fun.
We really enjoyed this day. Great pool, warm ocean. It would have really been great if RC offered free snorkel gear -- since this is their isle and all. The food was better here than a lot of the food on the ship. Be careful walking though - coral and rocks along their sandy paths and near the water (shells too).
Busy city. We walked to the Rum tasting distillery. Not very impressive and glad we did not buy the tour there. Did some shopping and walking around.
