Royal Caribbean has a private island on Labadee. This means that it has in essence nothing remotely resembling its original identity. That’s probably ok, considering most people on vacation don’t want to go to some miserly poor location, but, it doesn’t make for anything terribly special to remember, either. I’d read prior to leaving on vacation about Labadee; most of the reviews were along the lines of, “Yeah, get off the ship for awhile, maybe go zip-lining or ride the dragon roller coaster, but, it’s not that memorable”.
I have to agree.
We pulled in sometime around 9:00 am. It was already promising to be an extremely muggy day; overcast, with humidity dripping in the air. From the ship, the island looked like one you’d see in Disney World; “Typhoon Lagoon” or something like that.
Believe it or not, Dr. Yummy was wandering around the beach offering the drink of the day (White Pearl; some sort of rum (of course) concoction that was terribly sweet). BTW, they actually broke the rum trend yesterday as the drink of the day was a Margarita.
Ok, I'm digressing here. Back to the Enchantment where we lazed about, safely covered from the downpour that eventually happened, out in the Solarium. Everyone on board is in extremely happy spirits, despite the fact we're on our way back to Norfolk now. But, of course, there are two full days at sea remaining.
Suffice it to say, Mr. B and I were happy just to watch.
