We arrived to the Cocoa Beach area the day before embarkation. It was a nice, sunny day, with temperatures in in the low 70's so we decided to spend the afternoon at Jetty Park. It costs $15 per car for the entire day. They have restaurants there to grab a bite to eat, or you can pack a lunch and picnic. After a relaxing day at the beach, we went to Fishlips to have dinner and watch the cruise ships leave Port Canaveral. Fishlips has great food, good drinks, and good service.
Embarkation - It was the quickest embarkation ever! We already did the online check in. They verified our passports, made sure we weren't a Corona-virus risk and we were on our way. From the time we got off our shuttle at 10:30 AM, we were on board by 11 AM!
The ship is very clean and the crew works tirelessly making sure everything is spotless. We noticed that the crew really took the Corona virus threat seriously. Our first stop was to the box office to make sure we had tickets to all of the great entertainment. Once we had all of that settled, we headed up to Windjammer for lunch. If you've ever been on a Royal Caribbean cruise, you know that the Windjammer is packed with people.
Perfect size for 2 adults. It would be cramped if we had any more people in there. The cabin was clean and our room steward (Mila) was outstanding.
Great for embarkation/debarkation. Plenty of things to see and do around the port before or after your cruise.
Not much to see or do in Puerto Rico unless to pay for an expensive excursion.
Coco Cay is very relaxing, especially Chill Island. Lunch is good with your typical beach fare like burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches and tacos. The water park is expensive as are some of the other amenities. We think that it was nicer and cleaner than Labadee.
