Nassau (Cruise Recap #5)

Sorry I’ve been absent the past few days! We’ve been busy with wedding stuff, house stuff and watching way too many episodes of The West Wing (obsessed.), but I’m back with another cruise recap!

After our incredibly fun formal night, we accidentally slept in way too late. Our staterooms were interior rooms and it is pitch black when all of the lights are off. Great for sleeping, not so great when you don’t set an alarm.

We had reservations for a booze cruise in Nassau (all you can drink on a catamaran and trip to a beach) at noon, and we didn’t wake up until 11:30! I reread our paperwork and discovered we didn’t have to be there until 12:30, so we scrambled.

Except we had one big problem – someone was a little too hungover to spend an entire day on a rocky boat with alcohol beverages. Long story short – we skipped the booze cruise (can you guess how happy were Sara and I at this point? Not very.) and took a taxi to a public beach. Here are some snapshots of our day.

Taxi. There aren’t any traffic signals or law in Nassau. So I recommend you 1. not ride in the taxis when you have to pee and 2. close your eyes or you’ll fear for your life.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The beach was very crowded where we entered, so we walked down a bit and found a secluded spot.

Sara: “No thanks”
Little Nassau boy: “Okay, okay, I make you a deal. I give you one chair for $5.”
Sara…walks away.

Beware of the ‘deals.’

You see, we had a whole day in Orlando after our cruise before we flew home, and since we didn’t do any excursions on our cruise, we thought a trip to Disney sounded like the perfect plan. More on that later.The water was a little chilly, but I’m glad we got in!

Except we were incredibly disappointed. Those Bahama Mamas were so gross and I think we were all a little sick of highly fruity drinks at this point.

So we decided to leave our tip and head back to our ship for dinner…without even drinking our drinks (they were free so we didn’t feel bad!)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Bye, Senor Frogs. You were fun. Until next time.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA On our way back to the ships, we grabbed a couple Bahama beers to try.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Yeah…also not so good.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA We got back on our big beautiful boat and got ready for dinner!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Sara decided to torture Kevin and forced him to get professional pictures with her. We were CRACKING up. I regret not buying the one where they were looking longingly into each others eyes.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Dinner started with rolls, per the usual, which were gone in 30 seconds.

RICO, our waiter! He sang, danced and was quite the all-around entertainer. We loved Rico.

I think this meal was my favorite (even better than the lobster!) I say that not just because of the main dish that I ordered (chicken mushroom cream pasta)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABut also because of this AMAZING DESSERT. Why it took me until the third night to order the warm chocolate cake, I have no idea, but it was wonderful.

This night was the night of the deck party, so we went to the Lido Deck to check it out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA This is what it looks like leaning over the rail looking down. Warning: don’t do this if you are scared of heights. Or deep water. Or falling. Just don’t.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA And we really wanted to make friends with this awesome couple…

Day 3 was a blast. Stay tuned for Disney World…
