Carnival Ecstasy Cruise to Bahamas – Day 5 of 5

We woke up and went to eat breakfast before we disembarked the ship.   I had the smoked salmon bagel one last time.  🙂

We went to South Beach Miami to swim.  The weather was nice and the beach was beautiful.   I loved the white sand and clear waters.

We ate lunch at Clevelander’s.  We shared a delicious shrimp ceasar salad.

It rained for about 15 minutes but we didn’t get wet.

Carnival Ecstasy Cruise to Bahamas 2015 – Day 4 of 5

Today, we arrived in Nassau, Bahamas.   We grabbed breakfast before heading out to check out the town.

As soon as we got off the ship we caught a cab to Atlantis on Paradise island.   There’s a few things to see there but you need a pass which we didn’t get.20150514_083246 20150514_085436 20150514_093713 20150514_093610 20150514_093750

We took pictures of the aquarium.

Some people were swimming with stingrays and sharks.

20150514_084131 20150514_084210 20150514_084204

We snuck into one of the 11 pools they have there.

After we walked around Atlantis we caught a cab back and walked around the shops nearby the ship.   I wanted a dress so I bought that,  some souvenirs,  and James got me and some of his family some silver earrings.

I bought us some conch fritters to try.   A friend recommended I try that there so we did.   I liked it.  🙂

Later,  we got back on the ship. We grabbed some food and grabbed a seat near the window so we could say good bye to Nassau.

We went to see a game show and had dinner.  We played battleship in the Library.

Carnival Ecstasy Cruise to Bahamas 2015 – Day 3 of 5

Today,  we arrived at Half Moon Cay.  It’s a private island owned by Holland America but Carnival,  I think, is the only ship that goes there, as well.  Other cruise lines own different private islands but heard this one’s the best and I think they’re right.  The sand was like white powdery sand.  We spent the whole day there.   They offered free food on the island, as well.

Eating breakfast before we got off the ship.   Short video.

20150513_055412

We took a tender to the island.

Finally.   Amazing and beautiful.   The water was so clear.   We could see our ship right there.

20150513_112930 20150513_07354120150513_073045

Ready for lunch.  Waiting for a ride.

20150513_09405220150513_094038 20150513_095647 20150513_100643

After lunch, we swam a little more and got some souveniers.

20150513_102950 20150513_094105 20150513_112936

Heading back to the ship.

On the serenity deck saying bye to half moon cay.  We both took sea shells from the island and James made a pendant with one of his to give to me.   So sweet.

We had dinner and sat next to 2 nice couples.

20150513_174927 20150513_175022 20150513_17511320150513_174845

The appetizers were good but I didn’t really care for my food this night so we went to the Lido deck and I ordered a mozzarella caprese sandwich.   I put salami in it which tasted really good.  We took it outside to eat on the balcony which was very nice.

20150513_182222

I had a good day.   We got really burnt but it was so much fun!

I loved the seperate night light we each had above our beds.  Every night I’d read my book while James was asleep.  So peaceful.  I miss that.

Carnival Ecstasy cruise to Bahamas 2015 – Day 2 of 5

Day 2 Carnival cruise to Bahamas.

Today, was sea day.  We woke up and ate breakfast at the Wind star restaurant on the ship.   I had fruit and the smoked salmon with bagel.   I’ve had it before on the other cruise and it’s good.

20150512_09011020150512_090139

We did a bunch of things on board like go to the pool,  play ping pong, and miniature golf.

20150512_15202420150512_15080820150512_15081620150512_150912

We ate dinner and I ordered 3 lobsters.   James ordered 2.  Last cruise I ordered 2 and someone told me they had 3 so I wanted to try it, too.  I also had the stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer.  It was so good.

20150512_16311520150512_16285520150512_16295620150512_16290420150512_16383220150512_165237

After, we went to a show on the ship.  Before the show started the entertainers got James up to sing, my girl.   Aww…

When we got back to the room there was the towel animal Carnival usually has.  It was a dog.

Carnival Ecstasy cruise to Bahamas 2015 – Day 1 of 5

We ate at our go to sushi place a couple days before heading out to Florida for a 4 night cruise to Bahamas.  We were very excited.

20150508_204859

We left late sunday night and flew into Fort Lauderdale around 5am.  We made our way on the train down to Miami.  We walked around Bayside but everything was closed cause we were so early so we took the trolley to the port and ate at a breakfast restaurant we saw around there.

20150511_04592020150511_045928

It was finally time to check in.

20150511_064822

As soon as we got on board we went to the Library to play a little game because our room was almost ready but not yet.

After we went to our room we walked around and grabbed lunch on the Lido deck.

Later, that night we went to eat dinner and saw a comedy show.

July 22, 2014 Crafting.

My map from yesterday.  I put it up with a string for now but it’s holding up well.  I also, made a shadow box of my cruise last month.  I just wished I kept the umbrella from my drink to put in it.  I also, need to put a few pictures inside.  Hopefully, I get around to it someday.

The lighting was pretty bad on my camera.

Carnival Cruise Imagination to Ensenada – day 3 of 3

Cruise day 3

On our last day, it was sea day, and we decided to spend most of the day by the pool and just relax, as the weather that day was perfect.   We woke up that morning and headed to Pride Dining to grab some breakfast before we headed to the theatre to get a little dance class in.  They were teaching the dance to Michael Jackson’s thriller.  After the class, we headed to the pool to swim and lay back and enjoy the sun while drinking a delicious drink I liked called, the Twilight Zone.  There was a dancefloor by the pool with a dj so we got up and danced with the crowd.  We then, tested the jacuzzi toward the back of the ship and swapped stories with some cool people.  Later, that day we headed to our room to get changed and get ready for dinner.  We went to the comedy show after dinner for one last time and then headed back to our room to pack for the next day’s debarkation.

The Indian boy in front was so cute.  He kept saying he wasn’t a good dancer but reluctantly did the routine well. 🙂

Overall, I had a lot of fun!  I definitely, want to go on another cruise.  I heard this was a small ship (although, it felt big to me) compared to many that are out there.  I would like to try the big ones but wouldn’t mind trying the next one up from this one so I can enjoy each ship size to the fullest.
