Feb 26, 2014 - Steampunk Cruise - Day 4 (Nassau)

We sailed south from Cape Canaveral overnight and arrived at Nassau Bahamas today about noon. The temperature here was warm - finally - in the high 20's. It had been cold sailing all the way down, except for our day in Cape Canaveral yesterday, which was warm. Linda and I had hot stone massages booked at 9:30 AM so we had to be up early. Afterwards there was a Steampunk film festival starting at 11 AM in the conference room, so I left Linda and went down to see what was on offer. I watched the director's cut of an interesting film called...

Dec 8, 2013 - Bahamas Cruise - Coco Cay & Nassau

Hello Everyone, This past week we decided to take a break from traveling in our camper and try a Bahamas cruise! We took a 5 day / 4 night cruise on Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of the Seas to Coco Cay & Nassau out of Port Canaveral! We had a GREAT time doing everything from scaling their rock climbing wall on ship, to multiple Happy Hours in the Hot Tub, to snorkeling at Coco Cay, to shopping at Nassau's Straw Market! And, in between, we ate all we could at all the fine dining facilities on ship...at all hours of the day & night! We also...

Dec 1, 2013 - Bahamian Cruise!!

We set out on our cruise this week. It’s a short cruise to the Bahamas; just Nassau and Freeport. We’ve been to both of these places in the past, so it’s not a real big deal, but I LOVE cruising! It doesn’t matter where we go or how long we are gone – I just love being on the boat. This cruise did have one full day at sea, and that is my favorite. I love being ‘trapped’ on the ship, unable to see land or contact anyone! It forces you to relax; you really have no other option but to relax. Now, you aren’t really ‘unable’ to contact anyone at...

Nov 23, 2013 - Nasau, Bahamas

In Nasua we decided to do just a shopping trip. The town has a million jewelry stores. So we went with John and Suzie. Susan went to all the stores with free stuff. We spent about 5 hours shopping. We went to a bar to get our boarding passes for the flight home (needed wifi).

May 4, 2013 - 5 Days in Nassau, Bahamas

Fun times in Bahamas playing musical hotel rooms at the Sheraton Nassau. Finaly we were finally upgraded to the executive suite, with a four poster bed. The hotel is right on Cable beach. On the way to the Bahamas we met a lovely bloke at the airport in Miami who was very entusiatic about the Bahamas to say the least. He was right about the diving with Stuart Cove divers and the Blue lagoon island. But, I cant say i will have Conch again, dont get me wrong I love seafood but Conch is like a giant snail. Maybe i should of had it cooked? or...

Apr 22, 2013 - Nassau, Bahamas

4/22 – 4/24 It took two sea days before we reached our first port-Nassau, Bahamas. Before we tell you about that stop, we should give you some idea about what life is like on board the floating city: >The ship – The Mariner of the Seas holds about 3100 passengers. The 41 day cruise was a combination of three back-to-back cruises and none of the cruises were filled. They probably averaged about 2800 people per cruise. > Our Cabin – Since we spend so little time in our cabin, we normally get the cheapest we can get, and we did this time also....

Apr 19, 2013 - Week 2 - NCL EPIC - Nassau

Friday found us not needing to get up early as we didn't dock in Nassau until 12:00, so Phil and I decided to go to breakfast in the main restaurant and leave the kids to sleep. We organized to go on a trip to Atlantis, it is an amazing resort on Paradise Island in Nassau. It is huge. There were waterslides going down the sides of massive Mayan temples - a huge casino, heaps of different hotels in the same theme, and an amazing place called The Dig which we checked out briefly before we left for the ship. It had amazing aquariums that you...

Mar 19, 2013 - Long Island Breeze, Long Island, Bahamasa

I am sitting here at a resort called the Long Island Breeze. It's owners Mike and Jackie are great and it's always fun to come back to Thompson Bay, Salt Pond, Long Island, Bahamas! We came over with the rally from George Town. There were about 50 boats who came with us. The majority of them are long gone and we are enjoying the peace and quiet of Long Island..called the Friendly Island and it is! We are here with buddies Bob and Penny on Pretty Penny and Mark and Jan on Seas the Day with puppy Daisy. We did a tour of the island by car a...

Jan 20, 2013 - Bimini to Nassau

January 20, 2013 Hi All! We had a great time in Bimini. Doyle our dockmaster was great and told us many stories about the island. We stayed at Bimini Sands Resort and Marina in South Bimini. We were here with many boats most of them we know from past years. The skies were blue, white puffy clouds and the weather in the high 70s during the day and mid-60s at night…BUT the wind was strong in the wrong direction. We ended up staying two weeks which certainly put a huge dent in our cruising budget but if we had to have a place to hang out this...

Dec 9, 2012 - All Day on the Ship

Sunday, 12/9/12 – all day on ship Each day we get a newsletter giving us listings of what’s going on that day. In our group of 10, we all found plenty of things to do besides eat. All of us attended some of the presentations today. Jim & I went to a photography session given by a man who was born & raised in Fremont, NE. Sandra Day O’Connor is also on the ship & she attended 2 of the same sessions we went to. Most of us worked out at the fitness center at one time or other. This evening was the Captain’s Welcome Dinner. We ate during the...

Dec 8, 2012 - To the Ship

Saturday, 12/8/12 – to the ship Most of us ate at Subway. We could fill our stomachs cheaply, and it was reasonably close. Jim & Rox went through the Pirates Museum. Others walked around Nassau a bit or sat by the hotel pool. We needed to check out by 11 & then head to the wharf to begin the boarding process. This was AWFUL. There was only one luggage screening device and only one screener for humans. Jean & Jerry went fairly early, so they only stood in line 90 minutes. The rest of us stood in the heat & humidity for 2 hours & 15 or 20...

Dec 7, 2012 - To DIA, Atlanta & Nassau

Friday, 12/7 – to the airport & Nassau We and Bruce Cochran & Pam McCain are in Denver at a Super 8. We all woke up before 4:30 a.m., had a little breakfast & then caught the shuttle to DIA. No problems checking in, but the security scan caught Bruce’s Swiss army knives which he had intended to put in his checked bag. So long, knives. Our plane left DIA 45 minutes late, but we weren’t told why. Still had enough time in Atlanta to grab a lunch & catch our flight to Nassau. Another couple in our group, Jim & Janet Howard, were on that leg of...
