CAN NOT WAIT TO GO BACK!!!

Sail Date: September 2010
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Miami

It was our 15th wedding anniversary...no honeymoon..this was it!! IT WAS FANTASTIC...we are a conservative Christian couple..so, the "party, party, party", wasn't for us..but, the quiet deck was nice! I loved the buffet, Cagney's steak house was AWESOME!! the wait staff was PHENOMENAL!! They helped my husband sing to me...;o) it was a lot of fun!! every night our room had a different towel arrangement on the bed..a monkey the last night..it was so wonderful!! we were hoping that the "private beach on Great Stirrup Cay" was really private..though there ended up being naked men showing up after us..so we just went back to the ship and had a nice quiet afternoon! Leo was wonderful with his guitar singing folk love songs every night..."On Broadway" was really good! The game, "LIAR" was good, too...overall..we had a "smashing" time!! No one was ever rude or curt..they wanted to accommodate our every wish...we are on a tight budget and this fit the bill..coffee and tea were wonderful! More the ship did lose power at the end of the day when we were at port in Nassau..I was in the shower at the time..but, it was ok..we just took a nap...we enjoyed every minute of our time there! Our room was really nice and the only time I felt like I was on a boat was when we got to Port in Miami and the big thing had to turn all the way around..but, it wasn't rocky..it was just noisy..we didn't need a window..we were only in the room to sleep...the crew even told us how to catch a bus in Nassau to Cable beach for 1.25..couldn't exactly afford the $145 for Atlantis..though, that sounded really great! we had a great time..a guy with a 3 seater jet ski dropped us off on a deserted island in the middle of no where and left us there for three hours..it was wonderful..apparently a resort owned the island and hurricane Andrew came through and wiped it out..so there was a little piece of beach with overgrown brush growing behind it and we spent the day there..found star fish and a sting ray..it was wonderful! Anyway...we can not wait to go back!! You will not regret going!! ENJOY! great selection of food...too..though..they do end your day rather quickly..the Royal Caribbean didn't have to be back until 11pm..and we had until 5..but, we figured that because we were on a party ship..they want the people drinking on ship and gambling on ship to spend their money there instead of in town...that was the only down fall..we had to hurry..Wednesday..it would have been neat for us if we could have boarded at 11 so we could have attended a local church service..and there was no chapel on ship..they turned it in to an art gallery..but, we realized that most people on this cruise wanted to drink and party and blow money on gambling..God wasn't really invited on the cruise with them..though, one morning a teenage girl was reading her Bible on the deck as the sun came up...that was neat...met another Christian couple the last night..celebrating their 48th year...i hope we get to go back every year!!! GREAT TIME..GOOD CREW!!! Less

Cabin review: Norwegian Sky 7101

7101...didn't even unpack the suitcase..;O) we didn't TOUCH the mini fridge..prices were OUTRAGEOUS!! i am guessing that they think if they can get you drunk enough you will drink and eat everything in the fridge and they will make a killing off the fridge alone..we stayed sober the entire time..sorry to disappoint..very nice room..found a pair of pearl earings behind the night stand the last day we were there..

Port and Shore Excursions


well...we loved freeport, though many were complaining about NOTHING to do..but, we got the beach to our selves...and Our Lucaya had a beautiful pool that no one was using..so we helped ourselves..the only thing the staff cared about was whether or not the people lounging in the chairs paid their 10$ to use it..we ate at a nice place...can't remember the name..it was what we wanted! we are easy to please though..the port does look like a nuclear power plant..but, the drive to Freeport was nice...nothing "authentic" was being sold except the braids they will put in your hair...which I opted out of..that was a let down..i did get a drink in a coconut..;o) that was fun...some mentioned that they were asked if they wanted to buy drugs, but we were not bothered at all! WE HAD A GREAT TIME!!

LOVED IT!! we went on bus #10 and went to cable beach..met a local named Roberto who drove us on a jet ski to a deserted island for three hours...he was very nice! Gave me a nice shiny conch shell..because he said the two i found were ugly...and I gave him a nice baby one..with the conch still in it..and he kept that one and ate it..;o) I bought food out of a local lady's van..she had a line..so I knew the food must be good! and it WAS!! we aren't your typical tourists...we wanted to mingle with the locals...saw what the Bahamas really was when we were on the bus...I am glad they were still nice to us..they took american money everywhere we went...there is a starbucks just across the street from port..;o) same prices as america...i had the mango frap
