Really??? That makes me so nervous to take a cruise! I have some motion sickness issues and I'm afraid if I felt the boat swaying I'd be done

I love your pictures of the decor on the boat, it looks amazing! And lots of shopping, you say?? Hmmmmmm, a cruise is sounding better and better As long as we can keep that boat from rocking that is!

Last time I went on a cruise I got some of motion sickness patches from my doctor and had no problems! First time I didn't use anything and I was sick as a dog!

Really enjoying your TR! Have never read a cruise one before and although I will never go on the Disney cruise ships due to a phobia of boats I think your pictures are beautiful. Cant wait to see more.

Hi! Yes, well that water was pretty amazing. Seriously!! I have more coming up!

It sounds like a lovely lovely night.

Oh I really really hope we can keep the Feb trip. I'm going to be dying waiting to see what the new vacation package will look like to see if I can keep it.

Your pictures and TR are just reinforcing how much I want to go!
Isn't that Chandelier amazing! It is a famous glass artist up in your neck of the woods, I cannot remember his name, I am sure you know who I am talking about! the Disney boats are seriously amazing. The detailing and the styling is so beautiful. A really well-themed resort on water!!! When we went on the cruise before it was the Magic, b/c it was a 7 day cruise and I remember the restaurant being Lumiere's...

Oh I hope you get to do it! I am sure it will work out at some point regardless! Great cruise options on the west coast!

I would definitely like to have chocolates and turn-down service every night! Wouldn't that be the life?
There were two neat shops, and then one on Castaway Cay! I didn't buy TOO much since I just had!!!

YES, the ship is really amazing!

I know isn't that the life!!!

More photos coming up tonight!

So are you saying that I need to budget some money for shopping on the ship?

That water looks amazing!! I can't wait for Baylor to get a look, he has never seen anything like it!
I'm not even going to show him your pictures. I want him to be surprised!

What color blue is that?!

Greetings everyone! Welcome to day TWO of our cruise.... After an amazing start we we certainly got a great night's rest and awoke to sun through the porthole window , and a nice view of the Bahama's! Land Ho!
We got up, and went to the workout room. Which has a great view!!! We watched the ship get docked, and then they had to get clearance from the Bahaman officials before passengers could disembark.
After working out, we went to our favorite place, the Outlook Cafe, for fabulous latte's! and then we just stayed on deck watching the business of the ship. And Of course I took some photos... Here is the SKY...



And Here is the SEA...



These photos are of the small peninsula that is part of the island where the Atlantis Resort is (it has a name -- I can't recall it off the top of my head). There were several excursions we could have gone on, but because the cruise was so short, we opted to stay on the boat and enjoy the weather as long as possible, then take a stroll off the boat afterwards. It was a good plan for us. The purpose of this short trip was to relax. The captain wasn't sure about the weather the next day, so we wanted to make the most of it! We had been to Nassau before, so I wasn't dying to tour it. We made our way down to Triton's for breakfast, where I had a wonderful eggs benedict , and then we went to change for a pool side morning and afternoon! :thumbsup:

I took these photos midway through the morning when I went in search of some lunch! Speaking of food. There is everything practically all the time!! We had panini sandwiches with ice cream and some fruit from the fruit bar... And various other nibbles... there is food everywhere, all the time. :laughing We also each polished off two cocktails, poolside... Well, we WERE on vacation!!











Here is a shot while we are in Nassau proper, look at the boat peeping over the top of the roofs! The weather that day was incredible. It was great to have the sun to bask in, and the tranquil pool side deck chairs were not crowded since most went out to Atlantis, etc. I am glad we didn't go on an excursion this time -- it wasn't the money, really, but it was the time. We hadn't brought our snorkel gear, either. But this next cruise I think we will. Truly, I was content to relax and read, and enjoy the very uncrowded pool! We got our stroll around later on.






WIGD -- here is the basketball court, etc. for Baylor -- he will totally love it!





We stayed on the boat relaxing and enjoying the adult side pool, etc. About 4pm, we changed our clothes and left the ship to explore a little. Here we are coming off the pool deck down to our Stateroom, definitely been in the sun all day!



Now these two pics I took to show you a sample of the beautiful framed prints they have on the stair landings for all decs. They are pretty amazing, and the different prints are really cool! Everything from pencil sketches to things like scenery art, for the movies like Lion King and Little Mermaid.





The last photo I borrowed so you could see what it was like when you got off the ship -- you are in a valley between two large hulls -- the Disney boat and whichever cruise ship is next door! There were four ships docked, it was funny seeing them all in a row like a parking lot!



The rest of our afternoon and evening I will have to post tomorrow! That is all I can get in tonight!
