Heading out to Stingray City

We have arrived....to Stingray City

This is the boat that Marine Land tours has. If you have mobility issues this is perfect. The steps go all the way down into the water

There were some pretty big ones out there today

This is Bert - the Stingray Whisperer. I'm pretty sure they can't hear him because they don't have ears :p

This is definitely our favorite thing to do in the Caribbean. We have swam with Stingrays 5 times and I know we will be back again

The wave runner excursion. This would be a lot of fun but I would NEVER be able to get back up on the wave runner ;) they would just have to pull me back to shore :)

The water was so beautiful. You would think with so many people walking around that the sand would get stirred up but it never does

Thank-You. I didn't know Grand Turk had a stingray encounter. That's good to know. I will be there in October. But I probably won't make it past Margaritaville and their pool :)

Thank You so much. Yes the MarineLand guys are wonderful. They are there to help if you need it to get back in the boat. I am happy to hear that you booked this excursion and enjoyed it. We will definitely book it again the next time we go to Grand Cayman. My dad always says that we should try something different but we always end up going back to Stingray City

Before we left on vacation a friend of mine wanted me to get her 2 bottles of Big Black Dick. I am not much of a drinker so I had never heard of Big Black Dick rum. You've gotta admit though the name is pretty clever :p ;) :)

 

CarnivalDream-April52014243_zpsb3a362f6.jpg

 

CarnivalDream-April52014244_zpsf1927a5b.jpg

We went in the Liquor Store right behind Margaritaville store. It was 2 bottles for $25.00

 

That was our last stop before we headed back over to the cruise terminal to get on the tender to take us back to the ship. By now it was 2:00 pm and I wanted to get to sports trivia by 3:00 pm to try and win that coveted 24-karat ship on a stick

When we both got back to the room we got showered and cleaned up. By 2:45 pm we were headed back out to sports trivia. My dad went to the Ocean Plaza on deck 5 (this is where they had most of the trivia activities) and I went up to Lido to the grill to get us something for lunch. We were both hungry after swimming with the stingrays. I made it back just in time for trivia.....and it's a good thing too.....BECAUSE WE WON SPORTS TRIVIA :D

This is the new Green Thunder waterslide on the Legend. You stand up inside of a tube and the floor drops out from underneath you and you are sent flying down the tube.....UMMMM I think I will pass ;) :)

We headed to dinner about 6:00 pm. We never had to wait for a table

 

CarnivalDream-April42014417_zpsd2de8e24.jpg

None of the appetizers appealed to me so our waiter, Minor, suggested this. It was a Honey glazed Chicken wing....or at least it tasted like chicken ;) It was very good

 

CarnivalDream-April42014418_zps2782fb1c.jpg

Old Faithful....Flat Iron Steak

We headed back to the room to change out of our formal clothes (tonight was our 2nd formal night) and this little guy was waiting for us.

 

Any guess on what it is????

 

CarnivalDream-April42014428_zpsf9a8a3e4.jpg

Bathroom. Our cabin was a modified inside cabin on deck 6. The bathroom was big enough for 10 people. It was wonderful
