Well, I won’t do that again. What, you may ask? Plan on being able to run the blog via the ship’s internet. Adventure of the Seas is a wonderful ship, with great crew, and great service, but the wireless internet on board has been iffy for me. The good news is that Adventure’s wi-fi capabilities are getting a major upgrade next year when the ship goes through a big dry dock. Thankfully, most cafes in the ports of call have wi-fi, so I’ve been able to get some things done, but not at the level I planned. Lesson learned.

As I type, we are docked in San Juan. The beauty of back to back cruises is that on turnaround day you get to sleep in while everyone else is disembarking the ship! :) Since I’m so thoroughly behind schedule with blogging, I’ll be moving things I’d planned for last week to this week, and making use of reliable internet today to catch up. Some things, like my Hotel El Convento review will just have to wait until I get home. Thanks for your tolerance.

  1. So you don’t have to get off the ship? Do you have full access to the ship or do they lock parts down? Is this always the case when you book back to back trips even say a 3 and then 5 day or whatever?

  2. We will have to go clear customs at 10:45. They walk us through. Actually, we don’t clear because they treat us as “in transit.” As far as I know we are free to roam the ship. Lunch opens at 11:30. :)

  3. Txs how neat. Is that due to elite status or just how RCL does it. Is this the same with all lines do you know?

  4. Just being a consecutive cruiser. The process can vary from port to port. We don’t have to fill out customs forms since we are in transit. Other ports make you do the forms even if you are getting right back on the ship.
