Cruise: Bahamas Edition

As I mentioned previously, I just took a family cruise to the Bahamas. I was one of the lucky ones and my cruise was problem free. No Poop Cruise for me, for which I am extremely grateful.  The hubby and I were joined by my sister and my parents. It was a lot of fun, the part that wasn't fun was leaving my baby for a week. That was really hard. I literally cried every day I was gone. 

Noelle stayed with my grandmother and my cousin (who is really more like my aunt) and apparently she had a blast. When I finally got back to her, she just looked up at me like 'Oh, you guys again. Hey." She couldn't have cared less that we were gone or back. 

So I figured I'd show off some of the photos from the trip. First though, the most important picture:

I was so proud of my trophies. Two 24K gold plastic ships on a stick and a MEDAL.

The me and the sister.
We had just set sail, and already the husband was looking longingly at the land wishing he was back on it.
A 5 night cruise is a long time with my family.

Getting ready to go and explore Freeport.

The husband disagrees with my hats awesomeness.

We went to Senor Frogs. We drank. 
The sister got to order her first legal alcoholic beverage in a restaurant.

Mom got slightly wasted. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the  shots they insist you take. Man, Senor Frog's will get you chocolate wasted.

Yeah, we know. We're awesome.

This is how my husband wanders with us- distantly.

Yeah, husband threw out the devil horns. Because he's that guy.

There was a lot more that we did. There was a ton more that we saw. But this is the tip of the family fun iceberg. I will say, the staff/crew is amazing. I loved our steward and our main server at dinner.

If you're ever in Nassau definitely go to the Ardastra Gardens- don't do the $50 excursion. Take a cab most are $5 a person and then pay the $16. Make friends with your cab driver and he'll give you his number and you can call him to come back for you. If you're really lucky- you'll get a driver named Gibson. 

At the Ardastra Gardens they have marching flamingos- some of which were featured in National Geographic in the 1960's (they can live to be 70+). After their show, they wander the gardens with the PEACOCKS. THE GLORIOUS PEACOCKS. Like, you have to watch out our you may trip over them. It's really beautiful.


  1. awesome pictures, congrats on the trophies.

    i like how the hubby has a safety distance when i walks with you guys hehe

  2. That looks amazing. I've always wanted to go on a cruise.

    I love that last cruise picture. It reminds me of the stodgy principal from The Breakfast Club that kept doing that. "That's right, Mr. Bender. You mess with the bull, you get the horns."
