Where I stayed
By this time it was 9:30 and the last bus leaves at 1:00
Next we went to The Power Tower which has 4 slides but only 3 were open. We went down to The Current and Rapids and Erin retrieved a double inner tube from the river. We went up the Power Tower and did The Drop. It began with a drop, then twists and turns in a dark tunnels, then three hills in the open like on a roller coaster. At the end of the ride we were in The Current and Rapids, we went around a lazy corner and then through rapids in a tunnel, back to the base of the Power Tower. We went back up and did The Falls which was in the open at first, then in a tunnel and then back into The Current
So we decided to go to the beach and swim in the ocean for a little bit. We walked to Cove Beach and left our shoes on the beach. We went into the water for a little bit. The water was a bit chilly but it was beautiful. Then we went back to hospitality and I got a towel and my sun hat. Erin wanted to do the Serpent again. I told her I would meet her at the bottom of the Challenge Slide. She did the Serpent and the Leap of Faith as the lines were really short. She thought I said I would meet her at the bottom of the Serpent and she couldn’t find me. By the time we figured out the mix-up, there wasn’t time for many pictures. We hurried back to the bus and made it with time spare
When we got back to the dock we visited the Festival Shops so Erin could look for a magnet with the flag of Bermuda on it. She didn’t find one. We asked a girl to take our picture there in front of a huge peacock decoration. We were back on the ship by about 1:45, took our stuff to the room, and headed to the 2:00 Sail Away party. We stopped at Pirate Pizza for a slice and then got some ice cream. I must say there are a lot more young people on Carnival and the parties are well attended. It was fun to watch people lip-sync to songs and line dance. It was also fun to be on an upper deck to get good pictures leaving Nassau and enjoy the festivities.
Then we both had showers and headed up to the spa to see what was available. They had a special that included a 50 minute massage and a 25 minute facial. They could also get us in at 5:15 so we went for it. We went back to the room and changed and headed to the spa. We spent some time in the sauna but passed on the steam room. We both had amazing massages. I got a bamboo massage which is deep tissue and Erin had a Swedish massage
We headed for the Cinna-Bar early and talked with Dave and the other people there, while he set up. He uses a computer with all his music on it. Dottie and Diana joined us. They enjoyed Dave as much as we did. In fact, Diana held the Harmonica for Dave during piano man and she sang and duet with him, "Baby It’s Cold Outside." Tonight’s challenge involved two teams, the Lee-nard Skynards (them) and Naughty Nancy’s (us). Lee and Nancy were the team captains. Dave played songs with a color in them and the first one on a team to shout out the title won a point. We played to 30 points. The lead went back and forth. Lee’s team won 30-26. When the waiter was not attentive in bringing drinks and Dave started playing some of the same songs as last night. Erin left to join the party on Lido deck. I stayed until after Diana sang and then left to join her. They were still line dancing and going strong. Erin and I left shortly after I arrived. We went to bed after midnight.
