Cruising on NCL’s Epic – Day 8, Part 3

We lucked out and got a Town Car back from Atlantis to the Epic. They wait in the taxi line with the other taxis. So it’s luck of the draw. Eleven bucks and we were back at the ship. We raced through the Straw Market to grab a few souvenirs and the best water ice I’ve ever had in my life before getting back on board. The former is packed with handmade items form the island, lots of straw items (hence the name) and the latter is packed...

Cruising on NCL’s Epic – Day 8, Part 2

We spent every minute we had  at Atlantis riding the slides again and again; checking out the aquarium exhibits; and wishing we had more time. I would certainly recommend coming for the day rather than not at all. But, if you can come and spend a few days, that clearly in the way to go. Mainly to have more time, but also to avoid the dreaded locker line where we waited a half hour for one cashier dealing with credit card after credit...

Cruising on NCL’s Epic – Day 8, Part 1

At a friend’s suggestion, I decided to take my daughter to Atlantis for the day as the Epic would be docked in Nassau in the Bahamas. I could not have been happier with my decision. Unfortunately, the ship didn’t even dock until noon. So we were already off to a late start before we even got started. And we had to return to the ship my 5:30. So I knew it was going to be tight. Then, we made the mistake of taking the water taxi and it...

Cruising The Epic: Pre-Trip

I am headed to Miami with my junior traveler in tow to take a spin on Norwegian Cruise Line’s brand new ship, the Epic. It is a ship of massive proportions with a rock wall, water slide, “ice” rink, two bowling alleys, a variety of restaurants and theaters, as well as cabins ranging from hip studios to private villas. I’m excited to check it out for myself. Although, I admit, I’m nervous to be with so many people and am curious to see...

If you don’t know Abaco, you don’t know the Bahamas

I’ve never been much of a Bahamas girl. Just the word itself makes me think of Spring Break and cheesy hotels. So you can imagine my surprise when I went to Abaco in the Bahamas and found myself in the most charming of beach destinations. I stayed at the Abaco Beach Resort which offers hotel room, suites, condos, and boat slips. The marina was quite full when I was there and I liked the feel of that. I went sailing a lot as a...

Donning Fins in Abaco, Bahamas

While I was in the Abacos in the Bahamas, I had the happy occasion of going snorkeling. I had to search around for a good place to get in because the water was so rough that day. However, I was in excellent hands. Award winning guide Brendal of Brendal’s Dive Center found me a calm, clear location with lots to see. He then took me to a tiny, deserted shore where he made me a stupendous lunch of grilled fish and other fruits of...
