The Allure of the Seas made it to Coxen Hole, Roatan, Honduras today. So those of you that heard otherwise, the rumors are false. The Allure does stop in Roatan! You can see the damage to the pier, but is at the end of the pier. We were able to dock with no problems. Exciting events, the president of Honduras (or so the rumor went) visited the ship while we were in port. I actually saw him as he walked past my table at the Wipe Out Cafe. Lots of security and press. So I assume the rumors were true. Did some shopping at the port. It was a beautiful day and a lot of passengers seemed to be headed out on the many excursions. We decided to relax and hang out on the ship. Tip: You definitely need to do breakfast in the dining room. They offer both a buffet and ala carte service. We sat at a big table with other cruisers and had a very nice breakfast. I did the ala carte and was able to get the omelette I’ve been wanting! Today, we hit the Wipeout Cafe for lunch. Important note: it didn’t open until 12:30 so be sure to check the hours of operations before heading to a venue! Lucky for us it was 12:15 and we only had to wait 15 minutes. The plus to waiting was that the food was HOT and Fresh! Dinner was in the dining room tonight and was good. Hit the casino and the casino hit me back, in my wallet. But had fun playing and people watching. Everyone is having a good time which makes for a great experience! Oh, forgot to add... last night I did the movies under the stars. It was The Commuter. The movie was good and it was nice sitting outside with a breeze! Another fun and successful day!

We went to Little French Key and did the VIP level which allowed us to swim with a Jaguar. Yes, we all swam with and got pictures with a full size jaguar. I will not try to describe the experience any further but it is worth 2-3 times what we paid for it. The money raised is used to benefit the jaguars directly and they really enjoy being hugged. Besides the cats the VIP level included perfect tropical drinks, decent food, a private dining and beach area and access to horseback riding in the ocean and also massages for everyone all included. If you want to do something you never thought possible and in a place that is stunning beyond belief, you have got to consider this. The port is typical and the people are friendly. When we left the port to find the Little French Key rep, all of the other sales reps were kind and genuine. The atmosphere felt rushed but safe. This was the favorite stop of most of our group.
My wife and I booked the monkey and sloth excursion through 2k's adventures tours. It was amazing. Not only did we go to the sanctuary, but Joshua our guide (and owner of the company) took us to the chocolate factory, the rum company and took us on a nice tour of the island. We highly recommend 2k's.
Honduras is my favorite port I have ever been to. I love the culture and the people are so nice and want to make your experience perfect. So, if you are looking for a relaxing excursion try, the Little French Key. This is different from the French Key through NCL. However they are very close neighboring island. I have been to the Little French Key 3 times and every time it gets better. There is an animal refuge, horse back riding, a spa, food, snorkling, a rope swing, swings, swim up bar, and so many more things are included in the package. If you go there I promise you won’t be disappointed it is absolutely breathe taking and the staff is incredible! It is also much cheaper then then the French Key, and from what I heard from the cruisers from that Island it was not as accommodating to individuals of all ages. I enjoyed it so much I am planning to take a vacation next year for a week to just stay in the Little French Key🏝❤️🤙
