I had an AMAZING time on my cruise! It was beautiful and so relaxing! I had a very hard time coming home!
We boarded the ship in Jacksonville, and from there went to Freeport and then to Nassau.
In Freeport we went to Garden of the Groves. It was beautiful gardens and waterfalls.
I'm a little surprised that Freeport is a port for cruise ships. The majority of it is just a run down, deserted, poor town! It's really sad! Our tour bus driver said it's in that condition because of the economy. I loved the Gardens, but was not impressed with Freeport at all.
The next day we went to Nassau. I loved it!! Beautiful!
|Boat ride to Blue Lagoon Private Island|
Yes, the water was really that color!
|I want this house. And the yacht too.|
The food on the ship wasn't very good. It wasn't terrible, but I had heard that it was excellent, so was a little disappointed!
|This tilapia was good!|
|I'd heard SO much about this Chocolate Molten Cake. |
It was chocolate pudding cake, with vanilla icecream.
|My breakfast every morning!|
I just went to the gym instead. If only this could be my view every day!!
The last day was 'fun day at sea'. I got to lay out all day and work on my tan, relax and drink some yummy fruity drinks!
Yes, I did wear a 2 piece swimsuit for the first time in my LIFE! I've worked so hard to be able to do that, and I finally got to! I still have about 30 lbs. to lose, so I'm still not happy with my body. But it was so nice to actually feel comfortable wearing it! (I will not be posting those pics. I'm not that comfortable yet! ;))
While we were at sea, we heard about the other Carnival ship that is stranded on the ocean! I feel so bad for all those people! That could've easily been us!
We had a wonderful time! I definitely want to take a cruise again next year!
Now that I'm back to reality, I'm going to work on losing the rest of this weight, and keep on training for my marathon in 8 weeks!!!!
