We were celebrating our Anniversary! We actually felt like we did before we had kids (except for the daily bouts of tears I had when I would see some kids) and just relaxed and did what ever we felt like doing or not doing.
We have both been the the Bahamas before and did not book any shore excursions. Our first port was Freeport.
This is the great group of guys playing right at the ship's port. We had a Bahama Mama and just sat and listened before we had to get back on the ship.
Our next stop was to Nassau. We were actually in port for 23 hours. You would think that we would be off the ship during the evening hours, but instead we had a nice leisurely day in port and got back on the ship around 5pm.
We went to Atlantis for the day.
Took a walk through the Lost City aquarium.
Some of the largest sting rays we had ever seen.
Our last night on the ship we participated in something new on the cruise ships, the Chef's dinner. It was a little pricey, but so worth it. They only allowed 12 people for the dinner. We got a tour of the kitchen and the chef prepared an amazing 7 course meal for us. It was about a 3-4 hour meal and was the best meal we ever had, and let me just tell you we consider our selves to be foodies. Everything about the meal was fabulous from the service to the plating and the actual taste of the food. 5 star no doubt.
It was a wonderful cruise and I am really looking forward to our next one. It really is my favorite vacation.
