Day 3. Nassau
Nassau. The ship sails at night, so we arrive in port early in the morning. Nassau is a major cruise ship destination, and you can walk right off the gangway. At which point you once again face a cruise photographer.
Our intentions were to walk down to the old water tower. Rain happened. Doesn't usually rain in the morning, but these were deluge drops. Ankle deep water. We took refuge under the awning outside the Harley store (the jewelry store was across the street), and eventually went inside. I bought a cap, since we'd left our rain gear on the ship (note above: it doesn't usually rain in the morning!), which kept some of the rain off. I don't wear caps, but this one will be a gift for a friend, only used once.
Since there were no indications the rain was going to let up, we slogged back to the ship, where we were met by very efficient air-conditioning and staff handing out large beach towels. So much for wandering around Nassau. However, we did manage to find ways to fill the time. And since my parents and kids read this blog, that's enough about that.
Instead I'll chat a bit about the food. There's a lot of it. Most of it's included in the price. You can have breakfast in your room (although it was a very limited menu on this ship), on Deck 11 for the buffet, or in one of the two dining rooms on the lower decks.
Lunch was on the island the first day, and on the ship the other two. Huge buffet offerings. Or, limited menu room service. And there was a Ben & Jerry's.
Dinner. We stuck with our assigned seating and time, but the ship permitted you to make reservations and eat on your own schedule. There was also a sushi restaurant (extra cost). And the buffet. And one night, an additional midnight buffet. (Slept through that one). Nobody checked, so if you wanted to eat in the dining room and then go up to the buffet, you could.
I kept forgetting my camera. I finally remembered to bring it to dinner.
But sometimes, I'd be so eager to dig into the food that I'd forget to take a picture. I did get a few shots of dinner fare.
I didn't count the bars and lounges, but they seemed to be everywhere.
More another time about some of the furry surprises.
Tomorrow, it's Homicide Hussey again. I do hope you'll drop by.
