|In the Polo Lounge|
The first day we walked around the ship. Our room was mid-ship and it seemed like we were constantly turning the wrong way to get where we wanted to go. And, of course, the elevators nearest our room didn't go all the way to the Lido deck where the food was. We did eat reasonably the first day - Mongolian veggies and noodles for lunch and salad for dinner. Sigh. That was the last time.
|Punchliner Comedy Club, Plaza Lounge|
One surprise was how cold the indoor areas were. The Plaza Lounge was freezing. I was snuggled up to Den during the comedy acts for warmth. I finally had to buy a sweater and carry a shawl to keep warm.
When we finally got to Dolphin Cay, we changed into wet suits. And let me tell you that was fun ... NOT. Those things are tight! However, the water was quite chilly and I was grateful for the insulation. Of course, we got used to it after a while but the wet suit certainly eased the transition.
The drive back to the ship took a while. Traffic was bumper to bumper. It gave us a chance to really see some of the old buildings in Nassau.
Each day we started off with breakfast delivered to the room. And until the last day, we also chose to use the stairs rather than the elevators. However, by the last day, I confess, we were eating to capacity (and then some) and relying on the elevators. Every once in a while one of us would just oink.

A few grumbles here. No hairdryers. I was not happy to have bad hair days the whole time. I needed a hairdryer!!!! And the coffee was awful. It was very strong and smelled of sewer water. Den loves (craves) coffee but he couldn't add enough sugar or cream to make it palatable. I cut it with half a mug of hot chocolate and half coffee.
At any rate, now Den is comfortable with cruising and overall, we had a wonderful time.
