Part three of our trip report...

Image
Our next port was Falmouth, Jamaica - This is a new port commissioned by Royal Caribbean, and it's located about halfway between Ocho Rios and Montego Bay so we can do excursions from both of those ports!

Image
We opted to climb Dunn's River Falls, one of the most popular attractions in Jamaica.

Image
Much like the ending of Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland, You literally climb a waterfall!

Image
"Not sure if anyone has noticed this, but DAN is in front of me...in the water...I do believe that is a sign of the apocalypse...I mean Terminator Salvation?"

Image
"I fight for the animatronic hippos"

Image
Dude, Robb, this is Jamaica, not Rocky Balboa, ok?

Image
It's kind of like Rosie O'Donnell water just broke!

Image
TPR at Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica!

Image
I survived the climb! ... for the hippos!

Image
Next we went Jamaican Bobsledding!

Image
"It's actually a pseudo credit!"

Image
Everyone ready for Jamaican Bobsledding?

Image
And the view of Jamaica was fantastic!Check out this POV. Seriously, the ride was actually INSANE for an alpine coaster!



Image
This was one of the best Alpine Coasters I've been on. Crazy airtime, insane speed! It was amazing!

Image
So many different options makes William's head es-plode!

Image
Oh, yeah, did we mention we had to take the chair lift of death to and from the bobsledding place?

Image
They had spiders bigger than Rhode Island.

Image
They were effing everywhere!

Image
Next, you had to lift your feet as to not smack into the foliage!

Image
But the view was spectacular!

Image
Joey only ate 437 jerk chickens. I am NOT exaggerating!

Image
Adam had a couple of Jamaican Rum & Coke's. They were his favorite!

Image
As you can see by the look on Adam's face... He LOOOOOOVES Jamaican Rum!

Image
Adam looooooves Jamaican rum soooooo much....he left them a little present to show his respect.

Image
Freedom of the Seas dwarfs the new port of Falmouth.

Image
The new port looks really nice!

Image
Some of the new buildings.

Image
Here is where you enter and exit to get back to the ship.We decided to see how much wine Piers could actually drink in a short amount of time. This video tells the rest of the story...



Image
The ship is really impressive!

Image
Would you believe they are going to let TPR members in the kitchen?

Image
"Look! We are going to use an Elissa friendly sauce!"

Image
Reed is doing the cookin by the book!

Image
Ginny cuts the cheese.

Image
Lou and Stacey roll up some spicey-a meat-a balls!

Image
Big 'ol tray of balls!

Image
Reed cooks up some balls.

Image
And Elissa is frying up some pancakey pasta. Can she do the "flip?" Let's see....



Image
"I did the flip! Gordon Ramsey would be so proud!"

Image
Some cheese filling...

Image
Chef Mike was an awesome instructor.

Image
And the final result? Manicotti!

Image
The cooking class was awesome! We highly recommend the "Chefmasters" classes on the Freedom of the Seas!

Image
It was delish!!!

Image
TPR at the Chefmasters Manicotti class!

Image
Yup, it's that time again... Salad that is better than "normal" sex!

Image
Lick, lick, lick....

Image
Another view of the pool deck.

Image
The TPR suite concierge lounge came complete with the sexiest dessert on earth! Robb Alvey! Yummmmmm!

Image
Rojda has fully replaced Garbles as Piers' new best friend!

Image
Mmmmm.... STEAAAAAK!

Image
Best chocolate cake EVAR!

Image
Yes, Joey got all 5 desserts!

Image
KidTums was in the pirate parade!

Image
Hello towel animal!

Image
Tonight's drinking challenge... Piers must down all the glasses of wine in under 60 seconds! Watch the video...



Image
DONE! In 37 seconds!

Image
A TPR tradition on RCCL ships is to have ERT on the Flowrider for our group!

Image
Shannon saving herself from a wipeout!

Image
Elissa on her knees!

Image
She masters the "sitting on board" trick!

Image
"Perhaps I shouldn't have had all those Jäger bombs!"

Image
Renee gets it in the face!

Image
The Flying Dutchman!

Image
Robb gets his workout!

Image
TPR had the Flowrider ERT or two hours!

Image
William tries the stand-up surfing!

Image
Domo makes his return to the Flowrider!

Image
It was a quiet night on the Royal Promenade...

Image
But the dance clubs were hopping!

Image
"It's just like Night Maze at Horror Nights!

More photos coming soon! Now....

That port in Falmouth looks really nice, much nicer than the one in Ocho Rios. I rode that mountain coaster during my Honeymoon in March and it was crazy! Very unexpected. DO you guys do the ropes course at Mystic Mountain too or just the chairlift and the mountain coaster?

So Robb, will this be your new "gym"?


The new Falmouth port reminded me a LOT of Mallory Square in Key West. Beyond those gates though.....

The bobsled video gives me strong stirrings in my want region. And man, you know modern cruise ships are huge, but with the perspective of these shots, WOW. Holy Jebus, that thing is gitanic. :wtf:

Can't read these cruise reports without eating something anymore. The ravenous hunger they create would otherwise kill me.

I've gone pantless!

The Jamaican Bobsled was great. That whole Mystic Mountain facility was quite nice, too.
