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.

We then headed to the airport back to Cali.  A cute dog at baggage claim.

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.

We took a tender to the island.

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

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

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

It was finally time to check in.

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.
