Babymoon/8th Anniversary Cruise

8.23.2018


Jordan and I went on a little Babymoon/Anniversary getaway last week. We ended up doing almost the same cruise as last year, the only differences were that we departed from a different port and we were on a different boat, but the duration and destination were the same. We left on Wednesday night on a red-eye and flew to Orlando. When we got there we were exhausted. You'd think we would have been more rested after like 20 five minute naps...NOT. We couldn't get on our boat until 12:30 so we did something we've never done before... got a hotel room for 4 hours just to take a nap. It was worth every penny and we no longer felt like zombies.

We took the ship to Nassau in The Bahamas and were so excited to revisit Cabbage Beach. We've had a hard time getting a taxi both times we've been in Nassau and after standing around waiting for a taxi driver to gather enough people to fill his van we decided to try another method. I saw a guy holding a sign that said, "Paradise Island, Atlantis, Cabbage Beach" standing by this desk thing. I walked over and said, "Cabbage Beach?" and this lady in a security guard uniform said, "Follow them!" So I started following 2 families out through the gate and over to a limo! When we got to the limo everyone said, "$4?" because that's supposed to be the standard fare over to Paradise Island, and the driver said yep. So in we got! One of the families we were with was from the Virgin Islands and they were hilarious and the other family was from Dubai. The mom from the Virgin Islands was cracking all sorts of jokes and kept saying things like, "Oh! We SO fancy! We come to The Bahamas and live a limo life! Hashtag Limo Life!" "You know I'm gonna say something on facebook 'bout how fancy we are!"

The other great part about the limo was that the driver took us way farther down the beach than we got dropped off last time for just a few extra dollars. We had been a little worried about the long walk down the beach because the spot we like is WAY down the beach, at least a mile or mile and a half. And we knew walking on the sand in the sweltering heat and humidity was going to be hard for me (#pregnantlife).

We had a great day at the beach, enjoyed the fancy restaurants on the ship, went to some funny comedy shows (one PG show and one comedy juggling show), we each read an entire book, and ate lots of delicious wood fired pizza. What a fun trip!



^^Our room was on the 2nd floor on the slanty part of the very back. We chose this room because it had a unique shape which made it bigger than the standard Oceanview rooms.
