Monday (Nov 3) we awoke docked in Nassau in the Bahamas. CSP & I slept late then got up, had breakfast, napped (I KNOW, but I was on pain killers for the knee, people), then met up with Papa & Gigi for lunch. P&G were much more productive than us. They had taken a water taxi over to the Straw Market in Nassau. CSP and I toured the ship and I took photos. We were amused to see that we were parked right next to the Carnival Fascination- the ship CSP & I cruised on in 1999! Laura & Brandon and baby Alyssa joined us for lunch up on deck. Gosh that baby is just the cutest, sweetest thing ever! After lunch CSP and I explored the ship some more while Papa & Gigi went over to explore Atlantis. I’ve been to Nassau & Atlantis before and CSP didn’t want to leave the ship. Add that to my aching knees and that equals a relaxing day on the ship. When Mom & Papa returned from Atlantis we got ready for the show. That night was Toy Story the Musical. Boring. Although the sets and props were fab. Dinner that night was in Triton’s. Gorgeous restaurant! Fabulous food. After dinner CSP & Papa went up on deck to watch Monday night football on the big screen while Gigi & I went to see a hypnotist. It is so fun watching people get hypnotized! After the hypnotist we went up on deck to check on the boys. They were having the time of their lives hanging with all the other wedding guys smoking cigars, eating pizza, watching football & drinking beer. We left them to it and headed back to the cabins. Mom went to bed and I set out to deliver my fish extender goodies. Lisa talked me into joining the Dis boards and the Fish Extender exchange. There is a little fish outside of your door. A fish extender is a pocketed organizer type thing that hangs from the fish. Other cruisers come by and leave presents! It’s so fun! Plus, it makes it really easy to find your stateroom in a long hall of identical doors. I took pics of all the decorated doors I saw while I was delivering my goodies. I love how in the spirit so many cruisers are! More pics here (72 of them).
Next up: Wedding day!
