1: The 7 day cruise visited 3 ports 1.3.2012 Port Canaveral, Florida We all went on an excursion to Universal Studios’ Islands of Adventure. The weather was chilly – around 45 degrees. The only day in weeks that was below 70 degrees. Upon arrival we made a bee line to the Forbidden Journey ride, the main attraction at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The wait was 2 1/2 hours and as we approached entering the castle, the ride broke down. We continued to wait and eventually were able to enjoy the ride. It was very cool! We went on the other HP rides then Joey and I went to the Marvel Super Hero Island while Joe and Steven stayed to see the rest of HP World. Steven was in heaven buying many souvenirs such as wands, butter beer, a Gryffindor scarf, a chocolate frog, etc. Joey and I stopped for a funnel cake and hot cocoa in an attempt to warm-up. We then went on The Incredible Hulk Coaster a few times, did some shopping then went to the food court to warm-up and wait for Joe and Steven. Our day was truly an adventure. 1.4.2012 Great Stirrup Cay, The Bahamas Norwegian’s private island – Beautiful! They had a band and dance floor in grass pavilion, an amazing outdoor kitchen that served a delicious barbeque. The views were absolutely gorgeous! Again, it was cloudy and chilly so we went for walks and relaxed in the lounge chairs. Joey went on a kayaking excursion and Steven hung out with his new friends. 1.5.2012 Nassau, The Bahamas Joe, Anne and Joey went shopping on Bay Street and then to Junkanoo Beach while Steven went on an excursion to swim with dolphins at Atlantis on Paradise Island. Joey found some paintings from local artists at the Straw Market to add to his vacation art collection. Joe bought me a tanzanite ring - very romantic. While at the beach a parade went by. The weather was little warmer and the blue water was breathtaking! The days at sea and the evenings were filled with great food, drinks, entertainment and the world's greatest cruise director, Sinan.
