Babe's Hash Cruise - Getting Hashers Wet Since 1995
Note: This is a partial cruise doing a 6-night itinerary on an 8-night sailing that originates in Ft. Lauderdale. Royal Caribbean is allowing us to board the ship in Curacao (it's first port of call) and continue the cruise into Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. There may be a limit to the number of people allowed to board in Curacao.
We do not have a group block reserved on this sailing so pricing and availability listed below is subject to change without notice. Babe will notify you before booking if posted information has changed.

Sun, May 3rd - Fort Lauderdale, Florida 7:00 AM
There are flights available Sunday (4/26) and Tuesday (4/28) for direct Trinidad to Curacao service from Suriname Airways but of course the Sunday flight would have you missing the last day of Interhash and the Tuesday flight limits your time to explore Curacao, but those are options.
Most will opt for the flight offered Monday (4/27) by Caribbean Air to allow for some Curacao time before boarding the ship. To book this one, go to https://www.caribbean-airlines.com/ and book the one-way flight on BW400 departing POS at 11:15 am arriving CUR at 1:35 pm.

The Adventure of the Seas is a Voyager-class ship that has everything you might expect to find on a cruise ship this size and some things you might NOT expect 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. But don't take my word for it, see for yourself here:
Important note: Since we are boarding the ship as a "partial cruise", we must follow an approval procedure from Royal Caribbean that includes sending them photos of passports. So after booking the cruise we will collect by Email photos of your passport for submission to Royal Caribbean.
