Itinerary

Note: Daily itinerary on the islands will remain somewhat fluid and will be refined by Jason so that "high value" sites take priority to take advantage of the best light and weather conditions.


Friday, March 2
San Juan, Puerto Rico
 
Plan to arrive in Puerto Rico before 12-noon and join Jason as he leads an afternoon-into-evening photowalk of Old San Juan.  Our local guide will lead us through the old city while you photograph the charming plazas and alleyways, Fort Cristobal, San Juan Cathedral and one of a kind architecture. Even if you've walked the streets of Old San Juan before, you won't want to miss this encore opportunity. Package price includes one night at the fabulous Courtyard by Marriott Hotel.  Arrive a day early (March 1) and take advantage of our special rates.

Saturday, March 3 
Royal Caribbean, Adventure of the Seas
8:30pm Departure

Adventure of the Seas debuted in 2001 as the third in the series of Royal Caribbean's game-changing Voyager-class vessels. Though Adventure has been bypassed in size and amenities by the Freedom-class trio and the massive Oasis-class twins, it's still among the world's larger ships, with a range of the most uncruise-like venues at sea, such as a rollerblading track, ice-skating rink and rock-climbing wall -- not to mention the bustling hub that is Royal Promenade, a shopping mall-esque boulevard of retail stores, bars and cafes.

Ambience variety is key. The Lyric Theater has a nifty Art Nouveau interior; the solarium pool evokes the glories of Venice; and the Casino Royal centers on a Hollywood theme.The Duck and Dog Pub is perfect for Anglo-philes, Champagne Bar is elegant and Jester's Nightclub resonates with a Gothic vibe.

This ship is a photo destination of it's own -- with lots of very distinctly themed rooms and with even the larger venues like the Lyric Theater and Imperial Lounge feeling unexpectedly cozy -- that Adventure of the Seas has the potential to spoil first-timers...as well as crusty ol' cruise traditionalists.

Monday, March 5  
Willemstad, Curacao 
In port from 8:00am - 8:00pm
6 - 7 hour photo adventure

One of the best kept secrets of the Caribbean, colorful Curaçao is a trove of cultural attractions, rich history, and scenery that includes desert landscapes, rugged cliffs and 35 beaches. Our native guide will make sure we miss nothing! The colorful cosmopolitan capital of Willemstad, with it's pastel-colored colonial architecture, floating markets, famous Queen Emma Bridge and the sand-floored, 17th-century Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue. Our extended time in port will enable us to take advantage of best light opportunities.

Tuesday, March 6 
Kralendijk, Bonaire 
In port from
 7:00am - 5:00pm
5 - 6 hour photo adventure

Bonaire, an island municipality of the Netherlands, lies off Venezuela’s coast in the southern Caribbean. Its reef-lined coast is protected by Bonaire National Marine Park. Beyond its rich marine life, the island shelters lizards, donkeys and birds within its immense Washington Slagbaai National Park, marked by beaches, lagoons, caverns and desert-like hills. Come photograph the dramatic scenery and stark contrasts of this beautiful island.

Wednesday, March 7
Oranjestad, Aruba 
In port from 7:00
am - 11:00pm
6 - 7 hour photo adventure

Rarely does a Caribbean cruise itinerary give so much time in one port! Oranjestad is a delight of historic sights, bustling promenades, and colorful Dutch-colonial architecture. Aruba is just 20 miles long, so all the island splendors and adventures are within easy reach. We will hit the "must see" attractions including the Californian Lighthouse, the protected wetlands of Spanish Lagoon (home to a myriad of bird species) and quaint villages. Our extended time here allows plenty of time for individual pursuits as well.
