While eating our breakfast, the captain made an announcement that we won't be stopping in Great Stirrup Cay, NCL's private island because of high winds but we will go straight to Nassau instead. We like that. It means we will spend two days in Nassau. The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool. Norwegian Gem has water slide. While DH help himself to another breakfast (snack) in Topsider Grill :-) What I didn't like here was there were a group of people in the next table smoking closed to were the children were swimming. (Thank you for letting us and our kids smoke also).
We arrived in Nassau around 1PM
We took a taxi to the Atlantis. The fare was $4.00 each. My 7yo DD who looks like a 5yo was free. Along the way, our taxi driver was happy to gave us information about Nassau and told us that after 5pm we can go to the Atlantis Aquarium for free because there's nobody watching at that time. He said not to say a word that we got the information from him. But having read the cruise critic board we already know this. In case you're wondering what cruise critic board is, it is a website that you can go to for information about cruise, (of course). You can post questions there regarding your upcoming cruise. The URL is www.cruisecritic.com
We got back to the ship and had dinner at the Orchid Garden (Asian Cuisine) with a surcharge of $15.00 each adult and half price for the children. The food was delicious. DS was wearing cargo shorts and was sent back to the cabin to changed. I liked my Mandarin Prawn Salad. 7yo DD liked her Chinese Chicken Salad, my other DD liked her spring roll, DS liked his chicken satay, DH and Grandma liked their pecking Duck. Each specialty restaurant offers appetizers, soup/salad, entree, side dish and desserts.
After dinner, we watched the ship's show: Get Down tonight at the Stardust Theater performed by the Norwegian Gem Casts. The show was about dances from the music in the 70's. We liked the show.
