Did you ever notice when you have a short layover between planes, you have to run from one end of the airport to the other, and then when you have like 2 hours, you end up coming in right next to the terminal you are to fly out of??? I swear they just plan it that way .
So finally we were on our way to Orlando, FL, where we were picked up at the baggage claim and bussed off to our ship. Yet another hour to sit.
Then you board her. We had a balcony. It was spectacular!!! You fell in love in a moment. The pure calmness, the solitude, the smell of the water. Then soon you are only surrounded by ocean. I actually got to see dolphins off the balcony, only once and only for a moment, but it was a moment I will never forget.
We had a lot of fun over the next few days, On Cocoa Cay Island, we went swimming in water that was so clear, standing up to my chest in water, I could still very clearly see my toes. I watched fish just swim by. I got a video with my camera of the yellow and black stripped fish just swimming around. A few hours and sunburns later, it was back to the ship.
The next morning we were in Nassau, Bahamas. Having the whole day, we went to a little island called Paradise Island, where they again put us on a little boat and took us to Dolphin Island. This is where, lets just say that Deanna got hit on by the dolphin and almost received a French Kiss from him.
Another day we just sat on our balcony, and enjoyed just watched the water pass by.
The sunset was absolutely gorgeous ! Living on the East Coast you don't see the sun set over the ocean.
David got some very, very beautiful pictures. You can go see them on our website:
It will take me a couple of days to get our vacation pics up there, but we have many albums you can look at until then.
So this was a wonderful, and beautiful vacation. I loved every moment of it.
Any questions, all anyone needs to do is just message me.
