Back from 3/13/05 Fantasy


Recommended Posts

it was our first cruise- so I might have a better opinion than others who have cruised before- but everything was wonderful. we had a cat 12 suite- we brought the bungee cords to keep the door open but preferred a tennis shoe wedged in the door better- kept open the door most the time. The alarm clock (we brought) was a very good suggestion!


I wish I would have brought a blank VHS to record the shows on the carnival channel- the newlywed game and dancing and such.


my biggest regret was that we didn't get to see us leave. we went into the room and wanted to watch us leave from our balcony but we couldn't even tell we started to move!


the skippers club! wow! we went right up and there was 1 family in front of us so we were able to fill out our papers while they were finishing and went right in afterwards! what a perk!


the food was OK nothing to write home about though- my DH got filet mignon and he had to SAW at it to cut it, and I had lobster tail (I'm originally from the Maine coast- I know what good lobster is) this one was rubbery and nothing special. both DH and I are simple people and while we enjoyed the dinners in the dining room- we had late dining, we stayed up on the Lido deck one night for "normal" food.


we went to most the shows and comedians- they were good, something to pass the time.


in Freeport we did the dolphin encounter- so much fun! We spoke to a couple that had been to the nassau dolphin encounter before and they said they rush you through it and it's more commercialized- I really enjoyed our time withthe dolphins. DH hadn't shaved so when it was time for the dolphin kiss, the dolphin didn't want to, he backed right away, of course everyone had their laugh and asked DH if he usually got that response.


Nassau we did the Pearl Island Treasure hunt - we ended up with a conch shell- I didn't see any oysters but 3 people came out with one. most everyone had a conch shell though.


Debarkation was a breeze- we had a 1:00 pm flight but got mixed in with the early flight people and thought we should stay there anyways, so we got to the airport about 9:30am and checked in. at checkin we were offerred a non stop flight that got us home 5 hours earlier for $25 more so we did that and got home. just an FYI- red luggage looks purple under the lights where you pick up your luggage. I was so scared that ours was gone!


such a good time, if we didn't have a vacation planned for 2006 (to Disney)already we would definitely be cruising again. in 2007, we want to sail to Alaska- any recommendations? (just me and DH again- we'll be late 20s and mid 30s)
