Ok  well I did not take a lot of photos from our sail away. But I did take a photo of Space X faring chancing ship the Go Ms. Tree.


Well I did not ride the wave this afternoon due to the line being so long. But I did got to play mini golf. It was very fun and is worth the walk to get to it.IMG_0539.thumb.JPG.998387bcc9d5bfe86e3dcb863326c766.JPG

When I was playing golf the NCL Sun pulled up beside us.


After golf It was time for dinner in the MDR. 


Tonight I got the seasonal fruit melody. It was very good for this whole cruise.IMG_0550.thumb.JPG.941c9b5254cec7c175aec4640b4d42a8.JPG 

And the creaser salad.


And I also got the spaghetti.IMG_0553.thumb.JPG.f258e834d682ea81d3cd347ff1ce2472.JPG

From 9:00 to 11:00 I hit the wave. Lines were super short and staff were great!IMG_0595.thumb.JPG.c0430cf16991843f6d4c64ebf90492a0.JPG

The Zip Line 

Ok here is a little back story to why I booked the zip line at coco cay. So about a month ago I was looking at the cruise planner and I was at the home page of the cruise planner and they had the zip line on "Sale" for $69.95 which after asking some folks. I found out that was a great price for it. When I did navigator in October the zip line was at $79.95 for it then. so I am glad I got it for the price of $69.95. So here are some photos token from the gopro. We will start at the first line. This line goes right over the wave pool and the main restrooms located at the Thrill Water Park.



The second line took you over the Adventure pool at the Thrill Water Park.


And the third and last one took you right over Splash Away Bay and the Harbor Lagoon. 


Over all this was a great zipline tour if you are just starting out on ziplines and you want to see the island. But I do prefer the one at Labbdee over the one at Coco Cay.

Well guys after a few great runs on the wave I said it was time to go to Dimond club.


After a few drinks it was time to head to the MDR for dinner. here is  our table number. I forgot to take a photo about it in the first night.


Here Is Tonight's Menu.


I forgot to take a photo of my food. But I took one of the Tomato Soup.


After that awesome meal it was time to head back to the wave for the adult Flowrider Session from 9:45pm To 10:15pm.IMG_0656.thumb.JPG.3a093f74bb14302861e1416285a8f61b.JPGIMG_0643.thumb.JPG.f208a1c777ebc4bc32fbfef6346b9418.JPG

Well good moring from Nassau. Today I was planning to get up and see our arrival into port but I slept in a little bit too late. But I was able to catch the arrival of the Carnival Liberty. 


At 8:00am Sharp she was docked beside us.IMG_0680.thumb.JPG.80b4cabfafc8c7b181c1eba0fed2cbb9.JPG

At 8:45am The Grand Classica was arriving into her dock space in Nassau.


After her arrival It was time to hit the wave. The lines were pretty short for stand up today. but the lines for bogie board was super long. So instead of riding I was able to see the Carnival Elation pull into port. She pasted the lighthouse at 10:15am.


Also today they were having a crew lifeboat drill. They used the horn twice during the drill and it happen once when I was on the wave. 


One sad thing about the Elation was the rust on her. She had more rust spots on her than the Grand Classica. And I believe The Grand Classica is older.DSC08465.thumb.JPG.ebc1069e09c3f761b76efc012a4e20fd.JPG
