So we finally went on a cruise! I think we were the last ones of all the people we know to go on one:) Jon had wanted to go for years but I get soooooo seasick/motion sickness I was afraid to go on one. BUT right before Jon went into surgery-and things were so tense- I promised if he'd be "a good boy" in surgery we'd go on a cruise He was able to laugh and he was a good boy so within a month I'd booked us a cruise:)
The first day I had a tiny bit of dizziness and slight nausea but after that i was fine. I got THE patch that goes behind the ear and started using it days before we left.
Our first stop was Nassau Bahama
we didn't do any of the ship's trip- we took some advice and got our own cab and it was half the price of the ships tours and we got to go all over. We are adventurous!
We saw this sign and I just had to take a picture!!!
we visited the fort
Then we went to the Queen's steps
I'm used to heat....but it was so hot I almost had a heat stroke! Our taxi did not have good AC! And August in the Bahamas is HOT!
we went in Atlantis
then we went by a beach
The next day we went to the private island and swam. I didn't take my phone with us so we didn't get any pictures that day.but it was beautiful
we watched a a show one night
We listened to a couple of bands- playing "our" old music
But we mainly relaxed and read books LOL
The dinners at night were amazing and we did get a small table to ourselves. I did not want to have to be with other people. But to our chagrin- next to our table was the absolute worst children on board!!!! Even the staff had to say something to the parents as the parents let them be rolling on the floor and just ignored their behavior! It was awful and before anyone says that maybe there was something "wrong" with the children- there was not! These kids ruled their parents and the parents didn't care! We should have changed tables but we liked our waiter and we didn't want to end up at a large table. But other than that- we had a great time!!
We traveled on Royal Caribbean (4 days 3 nights) and was very pleased with it. the staff were awesome! Our boat was a smaller boat so there was only one pool and a little less entertainment but it fit us just fine.
We want to take the kids on a cruise now! It's such an easy type of vacation. I'm glad I finally agreed to go on one. It was just what we needed!
