Now that I've been twice, I can't wait to go back. It's a super cheap and less than an hour flight, so next time I think I'll take the "as the crow flies" route even though I love love love cruises!
10 of us set sail with the
cloudy Miami skyline in the background, and were ready for 3 days of fun sailing to the Bahamas. And I must say their ultimate beverage package was definitely a win! Since we all got the unlimited drinks package we did champagne toasts at dinner, and drank as much as we wanted on the ship and in the private island since it's owned by the cruise line without worrying about racking up a huge bill at the end of the cruise.

The next morning we docked in Great Stirrup Cay for another fun beach day which included unlimited food and drinks since the island is owned by the cruise line. Win-win!
Such a fun trip, and can't wait to do it again in the near future!
Bahamas - 2015
On my most recent cruise this past March to the Eastern Caribbean, the first stop was in Nassau. This time I was excited to do an excursion to the Atlantis resort where we went on a tour of the grounds, got to see their famous aquariums, and had full use of their pools, beach, waterslides, and lazy river. So much fun! You can read my full reviews from this cruise of the ship here and the ports of call here and why we will never sail with Carnival again *womp womp*.
It was beautiful there, and so surreal to finally be exploring the place I've seen on tv and in magazines for years. We toured the aquariums first before hitting up the water park, and eventually we went down to the beach to swim in the aqua blue water before shelling out $14 for those pretty yard drinks.
