It had been years since Mike and his mom and grandmother had been on a vacation together. We decided this year would be a perfect time. On June 21 we boarded the cruise in Port Canveral, FL. The cruise itenerary went from Port Canaveral to CoCoCay, Bahamas to Nassau, Bahamas, and back to Port Canveral. It was a 4-night cruise on Royal Caribbean. We absolutely loved our trip. It was relaxing to be away, but we stayed very active on the ship with laying out, swimming, shows, games, etc. The day in CoCoCay, you had to get on a small boat to take you to the private island where we hung out all day. On the way back from the island, Mike and I boarded a boat where a stretcher was being brought on board from a young man (about 18 years old) who had a seizure and almost drown in the ocean while snorkeling. Come to find out later this was worse than we all thought and our cruise ship had to dock one night early in Nassau to send this guy back to the U.S. to a hospital. Therefore; we docked early and Mike and I decided to get off the boat and make a night of it at Senor Frogs. It was a great time and we danced the night away to the local band. We also participated one night in the adult scavenger hunt where it was so much fun but very dirty! Mike ended up at the end of the night going on stage in just his boxers, my bra, womens shoes, and a purse. He had to dance across the stage while being video-taped. Im sure it will be posted on Youtube someday. haha. On the ship, dinners were wonderful as we ate several courses each night and sometimes even getting double main courses or appetizers. The food is by far the best part of cruising- It never stops! Some nights we would get really hungry at 2 am and run up to the top deck for pizza and cookies. In Nassau, we took a boat over to the Atlantis Resort and walked around the aquariums and resort. It is such a beautiful atmosphere! Overall, it was a wonderful cruise and we really enjoyed our company. We hope to go cruising again very soon. It is our favorite form of vacation!
