I was bad and haven’t blogged about our cruise yet. We had a great time on Sovereign of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean ship. We were supposed to stop at Nassau and Coco Cay, Royal Caribbean’s private island. Unfortunately, because of rough waters the ship could not run tenders into Coco Cay, so we missed that stop. I was pretty bummed since that is where we had planned to do our snorkeling.
So we were on the ship most of the trip, but the cruise line keeps things going, so there is almost always something to do. We played bingo, sat on the decks, roamed through the different lounges to check out the activities, and played the 10 cent slots.
I actually won $47 after playing only about 30 or 40 cents!
The dinners were pretty good, and for the price, we could not have eaten that well at home. On the honeymoon, we had a table to ourselves, but this time we were with four other couples at a table. Everyone was super nice and we enjoyed getting to know them. The craziest part was that one couple was on their honeymoon, and we found out that he is just a freshmen in college! Yikes…hope that works out…
To back up a bit, we drove down to Port Canaveral this time instead of flying. It wasn’t a bad trip, especially since I didn’t drink anything, so we didn’t have to make any potty breaks. We spent Sunday night in Orlando, and then drove through the Black Point Wildlife drive to fill our time before checking in at the port. We saw lots of birds and a few alligators. Not much, but a pleasant drive, and Bradley was able to shoot a little B-roll for work.
Check back tomorrow for Part 2 that will include our stop at Nassau!
