That's us. As any FL resident knows, if the water is below 80° F, it is freezing.

sorry you weren't able to get into CC!

we were there on tuesday and were lucky with our weather.
though our last night (wed night) we were really rocking and rolling!!!
This made me snicker!! Thank you! I only get off the ship in Nassau if I have someone with me that has never been. I'd much rather relax in the Adult area on the ship for the day. (ZzzZzzzzZzzz)
....and sleep!!!!

We were there Nov 6. The island is very brown. Most of the plant life had major damage, but we still had fun. The stingrays were back in the pen and up and running. The snorkeling lagoon appeared to be open too.

Thanks for the update! We'll be there in a couple of weeks. Glad we'll get to meet the stingrays. DS is really looking forward to it!

The island is rather brown, but there were already green sprouts shooting up on some of the damaged plants.

Everything seems to be up and running as normal. Snorkeling lagoon was open - however, I swam nearly the entire area and didn't see a huge amount of fish.

Water was cool, but very tolerable. A bit chilly for the first 10 seconds, and then perfect. We are big "cold water wimps" living here in Florida - and we had no issue with the water temp. Matter of fact, my step-son and I spent the better part of the day in the water and never felt cold.
