Port Canaveral
Universal Studios / Islands of Adventure Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Could have used more time here. It is a little expensive for the 5-6 hours you get in the park, but my daughter and I really just wanted to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We were extremely lucky and hit everything just right. Even with two other ships in port the day we were there, the longest we waited for anything was 50 minutes. We managed to see everything and even had time for a late "sit-down" lunch at the Three Broomsticks.

This was our second time here. We thoroughly enjoyed it again this time, even though it is hot and shade is limited on the island. They are expanding, and yes, they could use more lounge chairs, but we bring an old sheet with us just in case we cannot get said "chair" and plop down on that. We hang in the water where it is cool and re-apply, re-apply, re-apply the sunscreen.

DON'T FEED THE BIRDS. KEEP FOOD COVERED IF WALKING WITH IT.

THEY WILL ATTACK!

We had arranged the Wave Runner tour, but it was cancelled. They said it was because the tide was too low and it would be dangerous. I was told that my on-board account had already been credited (and it was).

Great Day!

On Nassau we did the Segway tour. OMG! So much fun. It was hot, and yes, we had to wear stupid looking helmets, elbow and knee pads, but after the initial training session, it was soooo much fun that you forgot how silly you looked.

A van picked us up at the ship and took us to a training area and after everyone was comfortable driving the Segway, off we went. We stopped a few places and the guides gave us a little history. At the end of the tour you had the choice of waiting for the van to take you back to the ship or to walk.

We walked and stopped for lunch at Senor Frogs. Had a few drinks, listened to some music and ate cheesy bar food! Mmmmmmmmmmmmm What a fabulous afternoon.

We were back at the ship in time for a quick dip in the pool and our 4:00 p.m. massage appointment.

Overall, a fabulous vacation and we are already talking about doing NCL again next year depending on itinary.
