Mar 26, 2015 - On the move, in Nassau for start of trip homeward

We have done a lot since the last posting. After our wonderful day at Little Farmer’s Cay we had planned to spend the following day snorkeling at various places as we made our way north. Once again, the plan was made only to change. Overnight the wind switched to SW which meant that the water was too stirred up to make snorkeling possible. Instead we had a nice sail back to the anchorage at Big Majors. Since it was Connie’s (Summer of 42) birthday, there was a celebration sundowner on the beach…and it was fun. The next day J&B loaned us...

Mar 1, 2015 - Moved on to Nassau

Our stay in South Bimini was a little longer than we originally planned. The morning of our (Brian and Vicki from Southern Yankee, Judy and Bill from J&B, and Fred and me) first full day there was spent at the Bahamas Telephone Company (BaTelCo). I had unlocked my iPhone and planned to put a BaTelCo SIM card in it. However, apparently my iPhone wasn’t really unlocked so we had to scratch that plan. My iPad (which has been “flaky” for a while) would not work with the BaTelCo SIM card even though it has worked previous years. Scratch that...

Feb 19, 2015 - Nassau, Bahamas - Feb 2015

Was not happy about the food here. Market Place (buffet) did not have much to choose from. We never even tried the other restaurants there. We visited Nettie's which is a good, local spot. Elvin served us some great food - pan seared grouper (me), friend conch (him), rice and peas, steamed carrots, and slaw. Delish! Many's - local hole in the wall bar. We watched All-Star game and contests here. We went twice. Met a guy named Doug there. He was from FL and pretty cool.

Mar 9, 2014 - Nassau, Bahamas

Our first stop was Nassau, Bahamas known as the gambling capital of the Caribbean. That is all we knew about it until we started writing this travel blog when we found out more about both the past and present of this island. Nassau is the capital, largest city, and commercial center of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. The city has a population of 248,948, 70 percent of the entire population of the Bahamas . Nassau is the site of the House of Assembly and various judicial departments and was considered historically to be a stronghold of...

Feb 27, 2014 - Steampunk Cruise - Day 5 (Coco Cay)

I awoke early (8 AM) to hear the captain's announcement that the weather was not ideal and the water was too rough for tendering. They were going to wait an hour or so before deciding what to do. The problem was that the small island of Coco Cay that we were going to did not have a deep harbour and all passengers going ashore had to go by tender (small boats). The seas were too rough for this and the forecast was for stronger winds and heavier seas as the day progressed. I could see the waves breaking on the island from our window. I was...

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...
