Half Moon Cay
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Day 3 was well the only word that comes to mind is Heaven or Paradise!! We arrived at Half Moon Cay and went down to Blue Sapphire (the main theatre) to get our ticket to board the tender boats since HMC does not have a dock. After changing we went to explore the island a little then hit the beach, words can not describe the beauty of the beach with a nice view of the ship. Crystal clear warm waters and nice warm temps we were in heaven. Carnival served us a BBQ lunch at the pavilions which included burgers, hot dogs, rice, chicken, fruit and deserts. After a few hours we had to leave to get back on board and set sail for Nassau. We were so sad to leave HMC with the great beach, sun, and very friendly staff that work on the island. We went to a free health seminar at the gym once on board, went to the buffet later on and saw the Brits show which was veryyyyy good. After that went to the open decks and played some mini golf and explored the ship some more

Day 4 was a fun day at Nassau. Once arriving we saw 3 other ships, 2 Carnival and 1 was Norwegian. We ate breakfast at Wind Star then got off the ship for Nassau. We explored the island and went to Pirates of Nassau which I highly recommend and other sites such as Fort Fincastle, Queens's staircase, Water Tower, diff churches and free museums. We had some pizza at a local restraunt then Bahamas Ice Cream. After a few hours we were back on the ship with the very beautiful Atlantis Resort just across from us getting ready to sail for Freeport and man that ship blast horn is LOUDDD lol

Freeport, well we were going to visit the Grand Lucyan since Freeport is mostly industrial so not much to do except stay on the ship or go into town, but weather stopped that so we settled for the Lucya Market across the street, not that bad but there is a lot of high pressure sellers there. We even got a ride with Mr. Curry once you take a taxi there you'll know Mr. Curry or his hundreds of Curry taxis. We got 1 last drink at Senior Frogs off the dock and sadly set sail back to Port Canaveral
