Key West was our first stop. We did the trolley ride then it was off to Duval Street and the shops and bars!!! We stopped at the web cam outside of Sloppy Joes so we could all wave to SIL who was watching on the computer at home. Then we just visited a few bars, including Kelly's, and then shopped a little and headed back to the ship. We were the last ones on the ship as there was a guy ahead of us who had way too much to drink and they were trying to decided if they were going to let him back on. They finally left him go but his wife must have been watching from up above on the deck and when the elevator opened for him to get on she was waiting for him and it was not a pretty sight!!!!!!!
Nassau was our second stop. We took the Blue Lagoon tour and it was alot of fun. Very relaxing. We rented tubes to hang out in and just floated in the water. Just be careful if you do this because you can easily float outside of the ropes and there is no lifeguard there. You are on your own!!!! We also walked around the island. It's a neat place! Very expensive food there but unless you take your own you have no choice!!! We headed back to the ship for dinner. Then we planned to shop and go to Senor Frogs. Well..........everything is closed at 5:00 except the Hard Rock and Senor Frogs. We stopped at Hard Rock for a glass and then onto Senor Frogs. This place smelled so bad I can't imagine how anyone ate there! We bought t-shirts and headed back to the ship. This whole area is not safe after dark and I wouldn't recommend it. I'm not sure why the ships stay there so late.
Freeport was our last stop. This port did not impress me at all. We took a taxi to the straw market and it was basically a waste of time. Then we took the "taxi ride nightmare". This taxi had no a/c (it was hot) and it had a huge hole in the floor where all of the exhaust was coming in. It was horrible. I had some Bath & Body wipes in my pouch and all of us in the back held them at our noses so we could breathe! It was terrible! If we ever stop there again we would just stay on the ship!!
All our sea days were filled with things to do. We played shuffleboard a few times and had a good time with that.....even though we really didn't know the rules! We just made them up as we went!!! The weather was windy but warm. The cruise was just fantastic and we all four just hated to get off the ship. But they made us go................
Debarkation was not a problem at all. We left our rooms and waited in the casino for our color to be called. We were off the ship at 10:40 and our limo was right there to pick us up.
This whole cruise was just fantastic!! I can't say enough good things about the crew and the ship. And sailing from Baltimore was great!
Any questions please feel free to ask!!!
