A Day In the Bahamas

In Nassau, we were allowed to disembark at 12 pm even though we have arrived in the city earlier in the day, probably still waiting for customs clearance. While waiting impatiently for the go signal to get off, we were sightseeing from the deck of the cruise ship. There were 4 other cruise ships docked at the same time that we were, so I was expecting a crowded city. However, that wasn't the case. I thought it was probably the staggered disembarkation schedule among the ships so that the city won't be inundated with so many people at the same time, thus our 12 pm disembarkation time.

The unmistakable Atlantis in Bahamas look so close.

Sky or water which is bluer?

  2. What an amazing city, I don't think I could sit too long on the deck though, 10 minutes and I burn.

  4. Beautiful! I think the water might win over the sky for being the bluest!

  7. I have never been on a ship that size. Like a portable city :) In this case you had a great view.

  10. Blue is definitely the dominant color ...and it is beautiful! The staggered disembarking time thing is most interesting. Worth it I guess for the less crowded conditions ... as long as you had enough time to spend in port.

  11. What they call bluer than blue, that when i see i can feel the heat. However, i guess in those parts the climate is lovely unlike here! Those people sunbathing under the clear blue skies will not be able to do that in our beaches even at 9 am.
