Won't you let me take you on a sea cruise? :)

Yep. I was out sailing the open seas. My cousin and I did a 4 night cruise to the Bahamas & Key West. It was a blast. Non-stop fun. We are already planning the return trip!

On the first night we sailed out of the Port of Miami. The sunset was gorgeous. We watched for a while and prepared for dinner (we only had a full table once). The ladies from Ohio were "interesting" to say the least. Something seemed off about them and one of them constantly complained about the menu. After dinner we went to a show in the theater. Awesome. We danced the night away at Spectrum :)

Tuesday we awoke to the gorgeous view of Nassau. We took a tour of the island led by Baron Johnson (funny guy!) and I did a little shopping. Tonight was the formal dinner night. I didn't get to wear my original dress b/c I left it at my gram's house when I was going from house to house during Thanksgiving. I had to get a back up dress (which was a hit!). After dinner we changed and went to play Battle of the Sexes at Boleros. Lots of fun but the ladies lost. Good job though girls! Next we went to the Dancing Under the Stars poolside party led by Mr. Ricky Matthews (aka the Energizer Bunny). This guy NEVER stopped moving. NEVER! We danced and danced and DANCED! We made some new friends and laughed at this one lady who was trying to learn how to dance.

On Wednesday we were on the private island of Cococay. It was alright. We walked the entire island and saw wild chickens, one of which scared me because it was laying in the cut. The beaches were gorgeous. We didn't get a chance to jet ski or snorkel but we will next time. We got back on board the ship and headed to dinner. Like Monday night we danced the night away at Spectrum and met some cool guys.

Thursday we awoke to beautiful Key West. We walked around and went to Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum (lots of weird stuff) and saw some beautiful birds in a mini indoor zoo. Tonight we finally had a full table at dinner. After attending the farewell show we ordered room service. Apparently the waiter was mad we didn't tip and left salad all over our door step. We would have but the only cash we had left was for paying for parking. We danced the night away again at Spectrum with Bjorn & Adrian (pictured left). It was about 5am when we went to sleep. We had a 7:30 wake up call.

Friday we woke up and ate breakfast. We got off the boat and headed on home. We were sad to leave but we are already planning the return trip.... In FEBRUARY! :-P
