Spring Break came this last week – and we escaped the cool March to the warm waters of the Caribbean. The girls have been asking to go on a cruise for several years. After going on a Disney cruise eight years ago, they’ve wanted to experience the ship life again.
Linda worked diligently to create a fantastic 4-day getaway. We first arrived in Orlando and drove to Cape Canaveral to stay the night. The next morning we drove up to the Kennedy Space Center and did a quick tour. What a massive and interesting place. The space shuttle was on the pad and being readied for launch in April.
We then drove to the dock to catch our boat, the Carnival Sensation (pictured above). We were on the lowest deck, but we did have a window. The first thing Linda did was find a chair in the sun. See if you can find her in the picture below.
I found time to sit in some shade and really relax – no phones, no emails, no work!
Our destination was Nassau, Bahamas. We spent about 6 hours on shore at the Atlantis resort. We went swimming at the beach and toured the Atlantis grounds, including the massive aquarium that is made to look like the ruins of Atlantis. Very cool, indeed.
Just like any vacation – it was too short. But we had a good time. Be sure to ask the girls about staying up past midnight each night with the Circle C club (group of 12-14 year olds on the ship).
