So this was our nineteenth cruise, but only the second with Royal Caribbean. We joined nine friends, five of whom were keen RC cruisers, so me and my wife tagged along.
It was a B2B cruise from Ft Lauderdale to Puerto Rico, St Maarten and Labadee the first week, then Labadee, Jamaica and Cozumel the second. Labadee was the only place I had not visited before and was pleasantly surprised.
Our pre cruise stay was two nights in Miami’s Loews Beach hotel which was well worth the high nightly cost. The buffet breakfast at $41, and a $32 daily resort fee were a con though.
