Cruise Wrap-up

On the third day of the cruise we docked at Nassau. There was plenty to do but we just ventured out a little bit and decided to just relax which gave us the chance to meet with lots of people.

I thought about all my friends who love to shop - this sign is for you.
This private yacht called, Ice, was parked next to our ship. Notice the helicopter on the back.
That night on board the ship we had a pool party, complete with carved fruit and ice sculptures. Lots of good food too.
Our last day on the ship was a day at sea. We relaxed and met with people. It was a good day. At night after dinner it was karaoke time. The last time at karaoke we had Mojitos, unless you're from Alabama. In Alabama they call them Mojitters. In this picture Courtney and Ben do they impression of Sonny and Cher singing, Babe.
The star of the night was my good friend Elisa. She bought down the house and got a standing ovation with her rendition of Heartbreaker. She not only sang but had some great moves. She's my hero and she has a lovely singing voice to boot. Elisa you rock.
Tom, Mike, Mandy and Robert. On our last day before leaving for the airport.
Thank you all for sharing the experience with me. I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Have a great weekend.

Yeah, I know I parked my yacht a little too close to your cruise ship. they gave me a ticket! Can you believe it? I was just parking for a minute to run into a little shop and grab a few things. I wasn't even there for ten minutes. You know what they can do with that ticket!

If we cruise again, we definitely will not do the planned excursions that cost so much - I was no impressed with our Nassau excursion at all. But I think we'd rent a car and do our own thing or else stay on the ship and just relax. But I do want to go again someday!

I'm so glad you had such a good time.

Mojitters... that sounds about right :) I love the ice carvings etc. - really pretty. And where were you? No singing for you?

Hope that you are having a nice weekend.

Tammy said...

What a blast this looks like...SO glad you all had such a great time!
My mom went on her one (and only- I'm quite sure she won't get another chance) cruise about four years ago with her sister and brother in law and had a wonderful time...her sister goes on them all the time and I was so glad that she could finally experience it too!

(And thank you for the birthday wishes, dear friend!)

Enjoyed reading about your cruise. I've only been on a 4 hour cruise...to get us to the Bahamas from Ft. Lauderdale. I would really like to do one some day.
