Great report! Keep it coming!
You are correct, my mistake. They were the crab claws with the arm?? attached not the legs.

The Dream is a great ship, I'm sure you will love her.

I am using a Canon Rebel XS for almost all if the pictures. I have some coming up from snorkeling that were taken using a waterproof camera.

Yay for Canon! I will be using my Canon 60D, so hopefully my shots will turn out as nice as yours!!

Can't wait to read more!!

Here is one of the hoodie but no food porn this trip. I didn't want to freak out our tablemates too much.

Part 3 - Nassau

Today was to be our day in Nassau. We had heard good and bad stories about Nassau and we didn’t see a whole lot on the excursions list that intrigued us. Atlantis did look intriguing but it seemed over prices so we simply decided to walk around a bit on our own. Pooksma decided to spend some time at the Spa in the afternoon while Declan hung out.

--------------------

So our day started out around 7 with a room service delivery of some coffee and fruit. Our plan was to hang out on the balcony and watch as we docked. It wasn’t long before we could see Nassau in the distance.



And then I noticed this guy



I guess the pilot was aboard and we were pretty close. Before long we were in the channel and started to get a good look.





I’m not sure what this is but I think it may be something left over from a James Bond movie.







Declan checking something out



Starting the turn so we can back into our berth



I’m sure this place had a few visitors throughout the day.



The port area



It must be rough to live here!



Here are our port mates for the day

The Carnival Ecstasy

[

The RCL Allure of the Seas



There were also two of these tied up



The water tower you can see in the distance was the goal of our walking tour.



Actually it was the Queen’s Staircase and Fort Fincastle but the water tower is right there as well.

After we were tied up, it was time for some breakfast. We headed up to Cabanas and found a table on the outside deck just above our cabin. A bit of warning for you, if you decided to eat out there while in port, be prepared for seagulls. They are all over the place and can get aggressive. In fact I left Pooksma at the table as I went to get some coffee and as soon as I left, the birds attacked! When I returned to the table it was surrounded by CMs cleaning up the table. I thought “Wow, what service!”

After we finished up, we headed back to the cabin to pick up the camera bag and some supplies and headed for the gang plank.

Next up – our walking tour of Nassau.

Finally had a chance to read through everything. Fishlips looks like a fun place to eat and watch the ships. Probably somewhat intimidating to see those big things heading straight towards you though.

I'm glad that you got Declan playing a little bit more physical in the paint. I'm sorry it was at the expense of being an elbow to your head while on vacation.

Great job getting stuff done once you were on the ship. A few runs on the Aqua Duck before you even left port is about as big of a win as I can think of.

I've never been on a cruise, but man, it would be hard to not want to pay a little extra and get a verandah. It looks like a great place to relax. I think your call to stay there as you pulled out from port and as you arrived in Nassau was a good call. Well worth it, I'm sure.

It was pretty cool watching the ships come right at you while at Fishlips. We got to experience that at sea on our last sea day as well. Don't worry, it wasn't as scary as it sounds.

We lucked out the whole cruise with the Aquaduck. The cooler temperature seem to keep the lines short.
