We will probably do that next time but it was a great experience anyways!

Good idea to choose this as an excursion just in case you couldn't dock at CC and the beach does look lovely
It was good planning..next time we'll probably stay on the ship!

Love all of the cruise updates/pictures!
The fireworks were super loud but we couldn't see them since we were inside and STILL had a line!

Great TR! I love your pictures and descriptions! I'm headed on the Fantasy in a few weeks and I am just soaking up all the cruise pictures I can in the meantime!

Atlantis is GORGEOUS! I've stayed on the boat in Nassau and so I've never seen it up close. It's beautiful! And nice that the cruise guests have their own beach, rather than jockeying for space with all the Atlantis guests.

And congratulations on your upcoming anniversary!

Thanks!!! I'm jealous you get to go on the Fantasy!!!

I think next time we'd stay on the boat in Nassau too or if anything walk around in the town for a few mins but I'm glad we did it and had a good experience!

Leaving Atlantis but not Nassau!

LEAVING ATLANTIS BUT NOT NASSAU!!!




*HAPPY WEDNESDAY DIS FRIENDS!!! I hope everyone is having a great week! This week is teacher appreciation week and we have been so lucky to be showered with gifts daily! It is a very rewarding profession and I'm so glad to be a teacher! I'm escaping Orlando (gasp!) for the weekend and heading to Bradenton for Mother's Day with my aunt and uncle (mom's sister). If I can't be with my mom for Mother's Day, I might as well be with her sister who is a mom too!! We're going to go to the beach..probably Anna Maria Island and just hang out. Last year I was down there a few times a month and this year with working at WDW and the love in my life, I haven't gone at all and they head up to Ohio soon! I hope everyone has a great rest of the week and a great Mother's Day weekend!

MARCH 25, 2013

When we left off, it was nearing 2:00pm and we decided to head out. We wanted to relax before dinner so our plans were to head out of the beach, stop by the aquarium area then head back to the ship.



That was one of my more fav pics of the trip!













As we were walking what seemed like forever back. We decided to skip the aquarium and just hit the gift shops before leaving.








I got a tshirt and some other souvenirs in the gift shop totaling $57 (not cheap!) and off to the shuttle we went!

The shuttle ride back to town was uneventful and we made it back in one piece.




We went through the customs building and I bought another tshirt and some straw change purse things and then we finally went through customs. It was after that we found that that that was not the "straw market" but the guests we talked to who went there said it was nothing great and most things seemed "store" bought..sad.






Which ship to go on..hm....







A family behind us took our pic in front of the sign. They were on the carnival ship..and were jealous haha. Wouldn't you be?!




We walked down to the furthest entry and when we got there a family was literally boarding the ship for their first day. I guess bad weather cancelled their flights the day before and they ended up having to fly to Nassau and taking a shuttle to the port then a golf cart to the ship. I can't imagine paying all that money to miss day 1 and pretty much day 2 of my trip. Guest Services was meeting them just through security when we got there.

We put our things through the scanner and scanned the room keys and back on our ship of paradise!!!

We dropped our stuff off in the cabin and went straight to the pool! The line for the aqua duck was pretty long so we just hung out on the adult decks and relaxed! I was getting into the pool and literally slipped! The base of the pools and hot tubs is so slippery like you wouldn't believe! It's like water on metal I kid you not and I pretty much made a fool of myself in front of like 20 guests in the pool and I had pretty bad bruises on my ankle and other foot. It was not magical. After that I decide to take my bruised self to deck 12 and watch Carnival sail away while we hung out in Nassau till 2am.








After fun in the sun and saying adios to Carnival, we decided to get a snack and prepare for dinner!


UP NEXT: FORMAL NIGHT...ENOUGH SAID.

I'm so sorry that you slipped and fell, I'm sure that hurt a lot. Yes the ground can be pretty slippery around the pool area. Thankfully you didn't break anything, that would have been bad

Aww man, I want to go on a cruise so bad. LOL.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to you! We had a nice luncheon today at school. It is a difficult job sometimes being a teacher but I love it.

Thanks! With my luck I'm surprised I didn't haha. I do wish it wasn't so slippery! That was not last time I nearly fell in the 5 days on the ship!

The CMs said that it was a "gift" to the CMs to have a night off when they were done with their duties. I guess they do that from time to time based on guest feedback and positive guest comments and what-not so the CMs got some time ashore. We too were able to be off the ship until 2am but by 2:02am if you were not on, you were left!

Formal Night

FORMAL NIGHT!




*HI DIS FRIENDS!!! I hope everyone is having a great week! I had a nice weekend in Bradenton with my aunt and uncle. We spent a wonderful day a the beach on Saturday and the pool on Sunday! It's nice having a weekend and doing nothing! My car also got washed and detailed thanks to my uncle so it made for a great weekend overall! We're busy preparing for our annual school Art Show on Friday night and our last day of school is next Friday! The days are going quickly!!!!

MARCH 25, 2013

When I left off we were waving goodbye to Carnival and stayed put in Nassau.

After catching more sun, we decided to have some snacks from the quick service and drinks too.

When we got back to the cabin we decided to watch some of Villans Tonight to see if it would be worth seeing before dinner. After 5 mins we were not impressed and decided not to go see it and just prepare for dinner!

We spent the time in the lobby taking formal pictures of back drops and characters. Before we knew it, it was time for dinner! I really wanted Royal Palace for formal night and we got it!




(Photopass also took a pic of this and we bought it lol)

I was sure, I would be getting engaged that night(I mean look at how darn cute I look!!!). It never happened haha. DBF told me it was not happening at all that trip. I thought he was lying. He wasn't lol.



I wanted to take the bread basket!



*FIRST TIME CRUISE LESSON #15

#15: Dress up for Formal Night even if it's optional!!!





Most people were dressed for Formal Night. Why wouldn't you?! They had such wonderful pictures set up everywhere including in the restaurant!



Only the couple from MI showed up for dinner with us. I have to be honest, it was kind of nice!



Escargot for me!


DBFs



Both DBF and I




Both DBF and I



Dessert Menu




Both DBF and I







Out of all 4 rotation meals, this was my favorite. I loved everything I ate and we had great company with our table mates! I'm glad they didn't make us wait for forever to see if the other two couples came. We were in and out in no time which I'm sure our servers liked because they had a fun night on the town ahead of them!

After dinner we found Mickey in the atrium and I bought this formal pic as well!







All dressed up and no place to go??!! NOT ON THE DISNEY DREAM!!!

UP NEXT: Formal Night After Dinner

Love your formal outfits! I'm such a tomboy it would be such culture shock to my friends and family to wear a dress, but I think I'm gonna do it! I think as a family we are gonna coordinate red white and blue, so I'm hoping to find a cute navy blue dress!
