for 2 miles in perfect weather. As I was finishing my walk we pulled
into Nassau with the Norwegian Sky fairly close behind. Nassau was busy
but not packed today with the Aida Aura and Carnival Miracle arriving
later, but we were the first ones in and the last ones to leave.
This is something of a homecoming for me. My first cruise (Carnival
Fantasy 1993) was from Port Canaveral to Nassau. Cruise-ships.com
credits me with 39 trips, 19 ships, 11 cruise lines, and 98 ports, and
that doesn't count my many trips on specialty lines, but this is the
first time I have been back to Nassau
my time around the downtown area. The bargain of the week was the
Nassau Public Library where wifi was not free but might as well have
been at $2.50 for 5 hours. I walked down past Junkanoo Beach to the
fish fry. Junkanoo beach looked like a pleasant place very close to the
center of things, I believe I got to Cable Beach in 1993 but did not go
there this time.
I boarded the Monarch for the last time about 4:30.
There were 7 of us present for this evening's dinner with I think 2
choosing to stay in town for the evening. The Crown & Anchor party was
in the Circuit this evening. There were 819 repeat cruisers on board,
with the top people completing something like 697 points. That was followed by the headliner showtime, comic/juggler jason Garfield.
Today's parting shot comes from Jason Garfield. When you swallow and nothing goes down, you're full. It's time to stop eating.
