Just pour carefully! And practice LOTS! You WILL want more!

The tip they gave was to always put the sweetest liquor on the bottom, because the sweeter it is, the heavier it is. Hmmm..... bet there's a whole bunch of concoctions we could come up with-

Best club on the ship!

We did that same drink on the Magic in April, but they served us the first two layers already poured and then sent around a bottle of Grand Mariner (was that the last one?) for us to pour on top of the first two. It was so good! I love those tastings. I finally figured out that it's not what I eat on vacation, but what I drink that causes me to gain so much weight! I'm going to have to work that one out before the F&W trip coming up!

I think the nighttime shot is good. It's the effort that counts. Why didn't they want you off the ship at night?

The mixology classes look like so much fun. DH and I will definitely have to hit one up on our family cruise. I'm too much of a light weight to do one on our mommy/son cruise. Joshua carrying me back to the room wouldn't be a pretty site.

If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Night shot of the ship totally worth it!

Thanks for the tip on the mixology class. Duly noted if I ever get myself on a cruise. Looks like so much fun!

That's different! Did they have all of you pour one? I would guess that's why- we had each volunteer making two or three- maybe there were 4 volunteers?

And those calories DO add up- I try to stay clear of those sweet drinks- but that b-52 was REALLY worth it!

They just didn't want me to get off ALONE. Nassau doesn't have a great reputation for being safe....

No one was wasted from this- everyone was very happy, but not crazy. Can you finish a drink or 2 without falling over? Then I think you could handle it, lol-

Nassau isn't considered super safe- they were ok with me getting off, just not by myself-

Yea- well, my blood's not boiling, but it could probably be worded better.

A quick update before we hit the road to Conn.......

Day 3 of our 4 day cruise began with coffee, fruit, and pastries delivered by room service. We didn't want to waste time sitting down for a meal anywhere, because today we were in CC!

Although, when I looked out the porthole, I couldn't see the island, so I thought maybe we were giving it a pass. But- we were already docked, I just couldn't tell from way up there in the front! Once coffee was consummed, we made our way quickly off the ship. Someone else was coming with us-



YAY!



The thing that I loved MOST about this itinerary was that we were stopping at CC on Day 3 and then had a relaxing sea day after that before the cruise was done. I can't tell you how much BETTER it is going to this little island of paradise without the gloom and doom of "MY VACATION IS OVER!!!!!" sinking in you the whole time. MUCH MUCH better.



We walked over to the beach, and passed by a few DISers from the meet who had run in the 5K that morning. I would like to do that someday- but I would probably be walking. Plus, I probably shouldn't have a mixology class and wine at dinner and Moet Ice in Pink with vacationing CMs the night before, but..I digress.







All that beautiful fruit was already out-





I have never gone here- have you?



There were tons of lounges available still on the old beach, so we went there.



And Timmy was immediately bored with me-



There was a hoops competition starting- last year, he had won, so he wanted to try again.





I was hungry, so had an early lunch while he was occupied (he wasn't hungry yet)-



He was still shooting hoops when I was done, so I took photos of ALL the BBQ food-















Cont'd next post-

More food-













And there ya have it! Timmy was done, I think he may have had a hot dog, and then we decided to go for a bike ride. I can always count on Timmy to ride bikes- not Tyler, he's not as into it. But Timmy and I both enjoy a bike ride- and we do like toolin around on CC.

Plus, it is a really cheap excursion for us, and that makes the Daddy at home VERY happy!



I have to stop here- Tyler and I need to leave soon and I need to finish up packing. Hope you are enjoying the 4th of July weekend! Please keep Tyler's team in your prayers- they could REALLY use a WIN!

Great update, wow when we went on our cruise they didn't have basketball to play. Planning our cruise now for next year, just trying to figure out what time of year to go.
