DAY 2: Crystal blue waters & watermelon sculptures….!

 

 Here we go day two, show us what ya got! 

The Man and I woke up bright and early and got out to the already packed pool deck early in the a.m.  We weren’t set to dock in Nassau til’ round noon so we figured that we’d make the most of the morning and get our tan on before debarking the ship!  Apparently the rest of the ship decided they would do that as well ;)

Duh, breakfast first (priorities peeps) – here was the fruit spread today!

After a few hours at the pool we were nearing our destination, Nassau, Bahamas!!!  Check this out, our captain was a female – the ONLY female ship captain in the history of cruising.  Supersweet me thinks (yea ladies!)

Before cruisin’ up and docking next to 3 other peep ships, I spotted my future home and just wanted you guys to get a sneak peek at that real estate before I scoop it up in a few years with my mega mils ($$$) - wanna be my bloggie friend now uhhh huhhh…  ;)

Okay, so now back to reality…. The Man and I were super pumped to be in Nassau and ready to get this show on the road!  (you can see the Atlantis resort in the background of this pic). 
 
Yea, we were there.

So in lieu of an excursion with our RCC crew we decided to make our home for the remainder of the afternoon at this lil’ shanty (veteran cruise tricks….)

Had a few local beers, continued to get our tan/swim on, and then came the monsoon!!!  It rained cats & dogs, so we took our party inside to the straw market and I bought a lovely imposter coach wristlet (our pig towel will showcase that later) and we picked up a few other fancies.  After the storm passed, we headed back to the ship for some quick snack eats and a much needed nap.  After we got our beauty rest, we were ready to get dressed up for formal dinner night!
Insert funny:  The airport broadcast man just told us to “control our baggage” — just sounds pretty funny to me — I’m just sayin’

Dinner night 2 was superfab I must say, The Man and I both started with the lobster bisque and then I went for it like a real man and got the beef filet for din, he got the truffle mushroom linguine – both dishes were deeeeelish!!!  The beef was cooked to perfection might I add, got my carnivore on :/  For dessert I couldn’t resist some of the coconut cake – sue me ;)

After dinner, we hit up the Love & Marriage game show (ummm let’s just say I now know wayyyy too much about 3 particular couples on board!) and the comedian/magician act…. once those were ova it was time for our ship to part with Nassau – late night leavin’ right? – and of course it was time to EAT AGAIN!!  Pool side buffet & party, and this was no joke peeps – they were grilling, bbq’ing, dessert-ing and more… like woah.  It was fun though, great energy! 
 
Ummm so not sure why I am glowing, our camera was taking the night off apparently... (see Nassau in background)

Needless to say, after all these festivities The Man & I were veryyyyy tired!  So we headed back to our closet stateroom for some sleepage, and that we did, but not before we were greeted by this lovely towel animal!!!  What better way to showcase the new wristlet, right?! 
 
Give that back pig towel!

    Just honed in on your blog recently and love being able to follow your and The Man’s delicious meals and escapades. Looks like you had a great time (and food) on your anniversary adventure. Can’t wait to see all the pictures and hear all the details. Sorry for such a l-o-n-g layover until you’re home but appreciate the recaps in the meantime. You’ll be surprised at the weather you’re coming back to – (like auto-Autumn, argh!) As the song goes, “Back to life, back to reality”. Miss you!
