Part II of ABC Cruise

The view of the ship in the above photo is from a smaller boat that took us on shore of Coco Cay, a private island owned by Royal Caribbean.

After we got into the boat from the ship we noticed the clouds above. Soon we felt raindrops. When we looked up, we realized it wasn't raining. It was a couple of window washers and when they sprayed it trickled down on us.
In this picture, we are approaching Coco Cay. It was a smooth ride to the island. No Oceanic survivors could be seen.

The beach was really pretty. Lots of coconut trees and sand.
Even on a small island there is shopping.
This picture was taken by Tom from the beach. The person para sailing is me. Didn't he get a great shot of me in the air. Now if you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'll like to sell you.
When we got back they held a little 70's night complete with customers (dig the fro man) and the Village People. Sorry no pictures of the Village People - I was too busy dancing to take pictures.
This is Chris and her hubby Ron. Chris did a great job taking pictures of the trip and was generous enough to share and do a great slide show for all of us. Some of the photos I used were provided by Chris.
Carol sang at karaoke, belting out a song. That woman has some great pipes. She sings beautifully.
Sam and Robert didn't want to be left out and got up to do a duet. Don't fear more karaoke pictures next time. Robert changed out of his tux by this point. He had looked just as dapper as Sam.
When we got back to our room we found this on our bed. Don't you just love towel animals? Our stateroom attendant, Roy, was the best. He took great care of us during our trip.
I hope you enjoyed this part of my trip. Next up Nassau.

Dawn said...

I thought you were parasailing! Good one. It looks wonderful. I want to go on another cruise now.

I have Part II up, too!

Damselfly said...

Hahaha! I really thought you were parasailing there!

Louise said...

Great pics!!
Love the towel art.
We leave for our cruise in a week and a half..can't wait!

Scarlet said...

I love how they decorate the beds on cruise ships. The cabin stewards are so friendly and upbeat all the time. I don't know how they do it on such little sleep!

Once again, great cruise photos! Coco Cay looks a lot like Stirrup Cay, the island we visited on our Norwegian Cruise Lines cruise. The water was beautiful!

Btw, if you would've worn your "traveling pants," I'm sure you would've tried parasailing! I think it's funny how you used the bridge in Brooklyn expression...I use the land in the everglades. (Guess I've been living in Miami too long!) :)

KarenW said...

The beach and palm trees look so warm!

I just dropped in to let you know I've given you a double-award. Please come by & grab them when you get a chance.

Dawn said...

Oooo!!! Sounds so nice. We hope to do a cruise sometime in the next year or two.

Thanks for your birthday wishes on my blog.

Hey what a great cruise and yes I think the animal towel is so cute and it shows the hospitality of the crew members.

I am so glad you have enjoyed yourself with Tom :)

LOL...oh I do miss your great sense of humor!

Hi, Nadine, I just love cruises, that looked like a lot of fun.

And YES, I did get the book! I meant to let you know I got it a few days ago & haven't had the chance to read past the cover, but I definitely will. Thanks again for the giveaway!

Tammy said...

Love these photos....what a wonderful trip for you guys!
(And I almost bought that Brooklyn Bridge...) ;)

Blue Seehorse said...

Love the photos... and the towel rabbit.I tried para sailing, me who hates heights, on a Mexico cruise... loved it. So quiet, peaceful and just serene... Thanks for the memories!
Thanks for the book, I received it late last week and hope to start it soon.
Been following Tom's journey as well. We are praying for both of you. XY

Art said...

Nice! You are making me want to go on a cruise! Or at least go to the beach...

My Wonderful Men said...

Looks like a lot of fun. Great photos.

Amydeanne said...

oooooooooooooo looks great! Someday I hope to go on a cruise too!

Rhonda said...

Great pictures. Looks like so much fun. My husband and I went on our first cruise in November to celebrate our 29th anniversary.

Theresa said...

I'm sooooo jealous. One thing I had to give up when I got married to Capt was cruises and white sand vacations...he doesn't like that type of thing.

Thanks for sharing your vacation with us.

As for the towel creatures, they always freak me out a little. I don't know why, but when I'm on a cruise and I come into my room as see them it just scares me for some reason....yes, I am weird.

chelle said...

Looks like a fabulous time!

elizabeth embracing life said...

LOVED the pictures. Especially the towel bunny, I mean that is just clever beyond words.

Lala's world said...

looks like SO much fun!

Christina said...

Beautiful pictures. This must of been so exciting. I hope I get to try a cruise one of these days. I'm so glad you guys got to go on this.

While you were enjoying your beautiful cruise, I was reading one of the best books I've read in a long time!

Congratulations! You have a bestseller on your hands!

I finished reading the last 30 pages yesterday--I couldn't wait to finish...but didn't want to leave this book! So I waited until I could find a block of undisturbed time to sit quietly and say good-bye to Prisoner of Circumstance.

Who knew!?!? What a story! What suspense! What a GREAT read!

You're onto something here Nadine!

I can't wait for your next book! Keep writing my friend, keep writing!

Oh--and--tell me, please, oh tell me...there WILL be a sequel to Prisoner of Circumstance....won't there??????


I miss Regina, Sophia, John and little Michael already!

BTW: the photos are so beautiful! I'm so glad you and Tom had such a great time!

Now, stop cruising...and get to writing that next thriller!!!!

;) Diane
