THE BAHAMAS ISLAND - NASSAU
Trip Start Jul 14, 2001
19Trip End Aug 03, 2001
After breakfast we come to the port.
Seeing our small ship just next to a huge one I thought that I better leave. I was not going to get in that small sailing boat!!
I had no choice! Anyway the cruise was nice, if not for the tornado which was in some distance behind us the very last day.
We were told not to be panicked and the ship has a great balance so nothing is going to happen even if the tornado passes next to us. To be honest, all of us were kind of scared.
The tornado was some hours back, so we had time to reach Miami by the time it approached us.
The result was that the following day we heard over the news that the TORNADO ended out at Canaveral making much damage.
Being on board a cruise ship is something new to us. The ship has 7 decks and it has even got a casino called -Monte Carlo- .
There are 4 big restaurants that offer 3 lunches a day, and besides these 3 there are 3 buffet lunches served during the day as well.
There are 5 bars and two swimming pools, a gym room, two discos, a music hall, and 8 lifts!
(Can you imagine the huge sailing boat what extra facilities could have included?
Sailing is nice, but for me who needs to do my daily walking it is a bit of a problem, and I have to face a big challenge day after day here
You can finish your breakfast let's say in one deck and you can easily go to the upper deck and enjoy another kind of breakfast.
As far as dinners are concerned now, well....after having our dinner we are invited to go to another deck where each night the chefs are prepare different dishes dedicated to a country. For instance there is a Mexican night, a French night, a Polynesia Night, an Italian night and this goes on and on.
Poor me, I find myself going round and round the ship each morning. I am walking for one hour to keep fit, and be able to enjoy the lovely dishes.
(Luckily I love vegetables, and fruit. However I taste a little of everything. And as far as sweets and cakes, well I have just a bite of everything and only eat what I really like.
