Today the Liberty of the Seas will be in Roatan, Honduras. After waking at 5:30 I managed to leave the room without key or mask so my brother came back and rescued me. 🙂 That’s why we need in room coffee, LOL.
At various times we were all in the café promenade for morning coffee. We were meeting for breakfast at 7:30 in MDR.
My starter was the fruit cup.
I had an omelet (surprise surprise) again.
Two of the group had the French toast that looked great. I will definitely get that one morning.
Victor Bodden Tour
We booked a private best of Roatan tour with Victor Bodden. We could start anytime within 2 hours of docking. We left the ship around 8:30 am and found Victor’s kiosk (#2) right around back from the shops so you’re still in the port area.
He called a vehicle over for us and we loaded up a van to spend the day with Larsen after confirming our plans. The first stop was a spot with a great view and shopping stalls.
Sister T bought a pair of leather sandals and I bought a bottle of water. We drove on the only beach you can and enjoyed the beautiful views.
Sloths and Monkeys
Then it was off to the sloth and monkey sanctuary. This was where we also paid for the activities (add ons are the monkey/sloths, ziplining and ATV). It was $30 PP for our package.
Larsen’s brother, Cesar, was our guide there. The first stop was to see the capuchin monkeys. They got on our shoulders and we could feed them sunflower seeds.
We also fed some in other enclosures that weren’t on us. We passed a toucan. Roatan is full of beautiful flowers.
Then we walked to the sloths area. They were slumbering on a setup that had food attached. We learned they don’t drink water and only go to the bathroom once a week. They sleep 18-20 hours.
We all had a turn holding a sloth and it was just as thrilling as the first time.
Then we went on to the birds. We were able to have a scarlet macaw on our shoulder which was fun.
We got a couple of them to say hola to us. We saw next the agouti in another enclosure and lastly a white tailed deer.
Chocolate, Rum and Beach
Our next stop was the chocolate factory. No one bought chocolate but my sisters did buy sodas. Then we went to the rum factory where a couple of us bought rum cakes and I also got coffee beans. The view was as incredible as ever.
Then it was to our final stop, West End Bay to the Paradise Beach hotel. This is where we hit a snafu. I had emailed the reservation form back a week earlier but didn’t get a response and they didn’t have us down. The manager agreed to let us use the loungers with umbrellas for standard day pass rate of $20 and we ordered food at usual prices. Here’s picture my sister took of the view and chairs.
The water was absolutely still and the prefect temperature. Also so clear that six feet out I could see see my feet.
Eventually we got out to have lunch. I had the hamburger with fries and could only eat half of it. Others had chicken fettuccine, Hawaiian pizza and chicken quesadilla. It was all good tasting.
We soaked in the water again knowing it wouldn’t be too long until we went back to the ship; we were leaving 2:30 pm ships time (Honduras was an hour earlier).
Then it was back to the ship where we said goodbye to Larsen after tipping him. Back on the ship, I showered and took a power nap before dinner at 5:30. We all made it.
I started with the coconut shrimp.
I could have had two of these it was so good. Then came a Caesar salad.
The rest of the table had the vegan tomato soup for a starter and really enjoyed it. My entrée was cheese tortellini.
Others had prime rib and the turkey for their main courses.
My dessert was the apple blossom. Sister T had this beautiful pavlova.
We were supposed to go to the ice skating show at 8 but everyone was too tired so we canceled our reservations. I just went back to the cabin to read and rest before going to sleep. This frog was waiting for me.
