Nassau
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Took a taxi to Atlantis Resort and view Chihuli glass sculptures in their casino. The Resort was very beautiful. Then took taxi back to main street. At the Hard Rock Cafe and then did some shopping. Area was easy to walk around and close to the ship.

Loved the mosaic streets and the beautiful foliage all around. Visited the fish market which was amazing all the kinds of fish they had there. Then headed to a free wifi cafe to download new books, check emails, etc. and ordered cappuccino before we headed to the tramway. Took the tramway to the top and had a great view of the city as we ascended. On top we strolled by the wooden sleds and toured a cathedral. We then took the tram back down and just strolled around and had a local beer at at street cafe. Then we headed back to the ship. Next trip I will do more shopping. We never got off the ship before 10 because most shops were not open very early so that worked out great for us.

Stayed overnight and had the whole day to explore Barcelona. Loved this city. Shopped and had Sangria on Las Ramblas. Were entertained by a mime for about 30 minutes while sipping our Sangria. Did walk to the Gaudi Cathedral. Had tapas at a local restaurant that night. Our hotel had 24/7 snack bar and free wine and beer on tap which really was great. Next time I will visit more of the tourist attractions in this area and do some more shopping. Can't wait to go back. One of my favorite places I have ever visited.
