Mariner of the Seas Dwell Weblog – Day 8 – CocoCay

Right now is our final day on the Mariner, however what higher strategy to finish the cruise than in CocoCay?

Patty and I awoke at 10 a.m. this morning and headed to the Windjammer for breakfast. We had been capable of get an excellent desk that ignored the colourful entrance of CocoCay.

Additionally visiting CocoCay in the present day was Attract of the Seas. We had a sense the island was going to be busy, so we acquired off the ship as quickly as we had been achieved consuming.

Our first cease throughout our (good) day at CocoCay was Chill Island, which you may get to shortly by taking a left when you get on the island. Right here yow will discover tons of seats and umbrellas for sunbathing and enjoyable by the ocean. There are additionally daybeds right here you possibly can hire for a charge if that’s extra your type.

It was a extremely popular day (85 levels however felt like 95), so I needed to cease and get a drink at The Wacky Seagull. Somebody forward of me ordered a Miami Vice (often known as a Lava Circulation); it appeared so good that I needed to get one too. Patty and I sat down and loved the views whereas I savored my drink.

We began going in direction of the Oasis Lagoon so we might cool off within the water. There have been a number of retailers alongside the best way for those who take pleasure in procuring. The Chill Grill can be close to Chill Island. We determined to take a look at the meals they supplied, and boy had been we stunned to see how a lot meals that they had!

The Chill Grill had burgers, tacos, hotdogs, sandwiches, fruit and numerous desserts. It was a a lot bigger choice than Royal Caribbean’s different non-public island, Labadee. Patty and I made a decision to separate a cuban sandwich and ribeye cheesesteak sandwich.

I might hear the music bopping from the Oasis Lagoon, so I knew we had been shut! The lagoon was busy once we first acquired there, and it stayed that approach a lot of the afternoon.

All of the seaside chairs had been claimed by towels so it was laborious to seek out an empty one to place our stuff down. Fortunately, Patty didn’t have to attend too lengthy, as a pair determined to depart when she was close to them. The seats had been proper by the lagoon and had the right view of the swim-up bar.

Celebrating the truth that we discovered chairs, I visited the swim-up bar and acquired myself a Bahama Mama. It helped me keep cool within the warmth for positive. A number of the group cruisers had been hanging out right here so it was enjoyable to see them and chat. This was my first Royal Caribbean Weblog group cruise, and I met a lot of pleasant people who have made my first expertise memorable.

I really like jamming to the music on the lagoon, in order that makes this place my favourite spot on the island. The DJ does a superb job of taking part in present and older pop songs to get individuals hyped and excited.

As I discussed, we had been fearful the island was going to be busy since there have been two cruise ships. This was not the case as a result of the island is bigger than it appears to be like. There are lots of locations to go and spend your day, virtually like a resort. This was my third time at CocoCay, and each time I go to, I discover new spots or issues to do!

The warmth was catching as much as us, so we selected to go again to the ship and provides ourselves loads of time to bathe and prepare for dinner.

I had heard from an worker that I can get a Johnny Rockets shake as a part of my Diamond Plus standing, so I needed to go see if this was true. Johnny Rockets is barely open from midday to five p.m., so I needed to go earlier than dinner. Seems the worker was proper, and I acquired an Oreo shake at no cost! I want I’d’ve identified about this sooner.

We didn’t wish to neglect to take a look at all of our skilled footage and purchase some, so we did that since we had been near the eating room. We selected our welcome aboard image and one other from a photoshoot.

Matt was sitting together with his daughters at a desk of eight, so he invited my mother and me to hitch them. It was a beautiful dinner with nice firm!

Patty ordered the crispy coconut shrimp as an appetizer. We each acquired the cheese tortelloni as the principle dish. I assumed this was tremendous good and completely different than the way it has appeared up to now. As I used to be consuming it, it occurred to me that it tasted like mac n cheese, in a great way!

Dinner had two of my favourite desserts – the summer time fruit pavlova and darkish chocolate brownie. Each had been a-ma-zing and I so want I might convey house some leftovers (however there have been none available).

The Farewell Selection Showtime featured each Adam Kario, the juggler and comic from final night time, and Jeffrey Allen, who had carried out in direction of the start of this crusing.

Adam placed on an excellent present and introduced somebody as much as assist him with an act, and that was enjoyable to look at. The gang even gave him a standing ovation. Jeffrey is an Elton John impersonator. Whereas I didn’t know any of the songs he performed, I might nonetheless admire his musical expertise.

After the present, it was approaching 8 p.m., and it was time for the sundown. We made our strategy to the helicopter pad on the entrance of the ship. There have been about 20 different individuals up there taking footage of the sundown as properly. It was lovely for our final night time at sea.

Since that is the final night time of the cruise, we needed to pack to depart. Patty and I should not mild packers, so we needed to dedicate a piece of time to preparing for tomorrow’s lengthy day again house.

There was nonetheless another occasion I needed to attend at 9:45 p.m. – The Battle of the Sexes recreation present. The host requested for 5 girls and 5 males to come back up on stage to characterize every crew. They then needed to compete in sure challenges, like making a paper airplane and seeing who might throw theirs the farthest and choreographing a synchronized dance with a handkerchief. It was a enjoyable present, however I needed to go away early to complete up my packing.

That’s a wrap on our Mariner of the Seas group cruise. Thanks for following together with us! Our subsequent group cruise is in December on Surprise of the Seas. Within the meantime, comfortable cruising!
