  1. Day 5: Day at sea. Because I get up early to run I got to witness the chair hogs 1st hand. At 6am there were chairs already saved. I did get 2 chairs around 7:30am but I sat in mine ALL day. My DH was back and forth to different parts of ship (casino mostly). By 8:45 AM there were no chairs around the pool area. It was quite entertaining to watch people come up and walk thru the empty chairs realizing they were all taken. By 10am people were picking up chairs and moving them all over the deck. Up till this day you didn't realize how many people were on the ship. The Liberty was in our sights all day, they did pass us. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/030.jpg They did some trivia by the pool and Ice Carving and then the hairy chest contest which was funny but that is about it. This made us laugh at the pool: http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/031.jpg Lines at lunch were crazy. Last night of dinner was nice. Donated to the casino one last time then to the family comedy show and then the adult one. I was a little mad cause they said everyone had to leave so they could let people in for the 2nd adult show, we were at the back of room so out towards the end. Others stayed in their seats and the cruise staff did not make them leave. I would have stayed. Oh well live and learn. I would travel on the Destiny again.
  2. Cruise day 4: Grand Turk: Had breakfast in the dinning room this day cause we didn't dock till 11. We were seated at at table with 3 other couples. Ordered. They must have went up to the Lido deck and waited in line because it took that long and was exactly the same food and was cold. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/008-1.jpg Needed to get off ship early because we were doing an excursion that we booked on our own. Snorkeling with Blue Water Divers. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/010.jpg I do not like to snorkel with the ship because they put you with 80 people and you only see feet not fish. The Liberty was already in port and people were getting off as we docked. So the marketplace was packed. Found the Taxi stand and went in a van with another family the 5 minuet ride to the dive shop. Then sat and waited for the last 2 people who were late. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/018.jpg Out on the most beautiful water to the first spot. Very nice saw some fish. Water was not cold. Back in boat to go to wall. Drop from 30 feet to 8000. Saw no fish here but it was cool. Went to the Osprey Hotel Restaurant for a few beers and a salad with another couple. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/024-1.jpg Then a cab to Jacks Place on the beach for some more beer.http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/026.jpg Walked back to ship. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/027-1.jpg

  6. Day 3 found front deck after running, Secrete deck on 6 and 7 forward. Watched the sunrise. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/001-1.jpg Ship was ancoring at Half Moon Cay at 7am. We ate and then went on the fourth tender to the island, get out early or wait. Walked down past ship bar and found a tree with two hammock and 2 chairs. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/042.jpg Walked around saw church and where people got jetkiing then kept walking and found the sting rays and took picture, http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/032.jpg I would not pay to do this excursion small enclosure with 6 or so sting rays. Back to sit at beach, snorkeled and saw fish the color of the sand. the sand was like walking on baby powder. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/036.jpg http://i132.phothttp://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/024.jpgobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/027.jpg The Beach got rally crowded by 12:30 or so. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/040.jpg http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/041.jpg http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/038.jpg Had lunch it was ok. Very organized and clean eating areas. Back on a tender ny 130 then up to the pools. We heard the tender lines wrappped around and people had to wait a half hour, in the sun and it was hot so get a jump on the crowds. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/044.jpg http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/045.jpg Dinner then donated to the casino. Watched karaoke and then to bed by 1015.

  8. DK you were on the Liberty, saw you in port then your Captain halled A**. I woke up at 4:30 AM and your ship was off in the distance behind us then all day you were working your way past us, You were a nice view from my chair on the upper deck Friday .http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/030.jpg
  9. We did tell our waiter that all the drinks for the table were on us the 1st night.
  10. Day one up at 245 to get to Newark Airport. Parked at Corporate Parking indoor lot seemed good van right to door of American.. Breeze thru security and boarded befor 530. The plane needed deicing waited for 30 min so took off after 630 but arrived Miami only 10 min late. Cab stop at store for h2o and sun screen then to port at 1030. On board by 1130 (zone 3). Carried our luggage on because I did not know I would have to leave them with the guys outside and I wanted to go thru some things. But it was ok. We went to the back of the lido deck. Go all the way to back by adult hot tubs, less crowded and quieter and the grill had no line forever cause no one knew we were back there. Great bathroom to change in. Down to room 2344 at 130 with all our bags.http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/014.jpg http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/015.jpg Unpack and shower for DH then back to the deck he was hungry again. Watched sail away great view of Miami Beach from left side of ship. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q33/lordofzrings/025.jpg Down to dress for early dinner table for 8 we were the only ones at it. Dinner service was SLOW took for ever but was hot and good fried shrimp app good, DH has Duck loved it.. I had steak good and DH had chicken and pasta and he liked it Chocolate cake and ice cream to die for. Walking around ended in casino I was in room by 9. I was up since 2:30AM Hope I did the pictures right.
  11. Thanks for the quick reply!:D
  12. When I write a review how do I post pictures with it? Thanks
  13. My DH spent alot of time in the casino. He plays Let it Ride and Roulette mostly but we did do a Blackjack tournament and they held slot tournaments. There was also a Texas Hold Em electronic table that always seened to be full. Chocolate night was not the day at sea night. I think it was the 4th night (I missed it). I never saw anyone passing any appetizers except at the past cruisers party. there is a basketball court and mini golf. The gym is really up to date with bikes treadmills ellipticals weights and even spin class for xtra$. Bring headphone if you uses treadmill they have TV.
  14. There was a quiet pool at the back of the ship. A no kids allowed sign at the hot tubs by this pool, Carnival doesn't enforce their own rules I saw kids in the casino and no one said anything. There is a pool theater. Screen is on all day with beach and waterfall pics with music. I don't know why there is only one ship in the class we chose it cause we needed to a cruise on specific dates.
