First Time On A Cruise

Last January,  as you know I went on cruise to the Bahamas with my husband.  We embarked on the Liberty of the Seas, sailed from Fort Lauderdale and we sailed for 3 Nights.  The first we visited was Nassau – Bahamas’s capital, also the largest and busiest port of entry of the country, and it is the home of the popular tourist attraction, Atlantis Resort. We docked there for a day. The second port we visited was Coco Cay. It is a private island of Royal Caribbean, exclusive to its passengers only.  We spent a beach day there exploring the resort.  The next port was the Everglades Port where we originated from Fort Lauderdale. 
It’s a Friday to Monday

It was short but  I absolutely loved it.  long enough to change my view of vacationing. My love to see turquoise water has risen. My passion to see new places has increased. My standard of dining has expanded.

What I loved about it is the fact that I get to see different places each morning when I wake up. The longer your cruise is, the more ports you’ll visit.  I also loved that I didn’t have to worry about meals.  

All meals and snacks and drinks are free,  there are also dining and drinking packages if you want more selections. 

Plus there are tons of activities and entertainment. These are some of the things that we did:  whirlpool,  sauna, swimming pool, ice skating,  Broadway show, Irish pub,  Piano bar, wine tasting, art gallery,  shopping… I missed trying the wall climbing, flow rider, karaoke and mini golf.  There is so much more to do so we just decided to focus on what we really really wanted to do… Ace is happy with his everyday whirlpool and sauna.

My favorite is watching sunsets right in the comfort of my room with a private balcony. I brought my book and my coffee to the balcony and that’s my bliss, devotion moment.  

Our experience with the ship crews are super. They are so friendly,  always smiling and I can’t remember how many times I got greeted when I walked in the buffet for breakfast. It just makes my day. Everywhere we go, so hospitable and helpful.

I feel that it should have been longer. In one whirlpool moment we had, I said to myself, everyone should experience this. It is so worth it. There’s so much value to what we paid for. It is truly an unforgettable treasure in my life. We totally enjoyed Royal Caribbean.

There are many great destinations and exciting activities per port and per ship. But I want to highlight:

7 Night Alaska Glacier Cruise – JUNE 30, 2023 – that will be sailing from Seattle, Washington to board onto Ovation of the Sea.
