I had requested a room in front of the volcano and I was beside myself because that is exactly what we got especially as I managed to get the last villa available for the night.

That was a little unnerving. Then James decides to ask if there are any kind of scary animals that live in the water like a ...
... it. I remember being in Nassau for like an hour in the town and thinking if my cruise ever ported there again I would do an excursion and nothing else. I felt like I was almost accosted by locals wanting to braid my hair or children begging. I felt very unsafe there. We did a carriage ride which was not at all what was promised and the whole time I thought we might be killed…not the romantic ride I had hoped for. I can only imagine what the Costa ...
