The bar and restaurant are now open. My only complaint is that they didn't start serving drinks and food until 11am.....



Patti took this time to take a little stroll around the hotel and take some pictures. It really is a nice hotel.....

This is a Bahama Mama. They were $9 each, but they had a special of buy 2, get 1 free. These drinks were very strong. We wound up buying 4, And getting 2 free. I drank 4 of them, and Patti had 2.



Here I am enjoying one of my Bahama Mamas….



The math for our lunch and drinks went like this. $16 for the turkey club, $17 for the jerked chicken wrap, $36 for the 4 Bahama Mamas, came out to $69. Add to that the tax and tip, the final total was $84, so I had to charge $4 to my card. Remember, we had a total of $80 in food and beverage vouchers.

After lunch, Patti went to lay out in the sun, while I grabbed the water camera and made my way into the water again…..







There are a few fish swimming around me.....

It was now a little after 1pm. Patti was going to take a walk downtown, do a little shopping, then head back to the ship. I was going to hang out a little longer, finish my last Bahama Mama, then head over to Senor Frog's for a drink before heading back myself.

As Patti leaves, of course she starts taking pictures. Here's the smoking section, outside, at the British Colonial Hilton.....

A few pictures outside of Sharkeez. We keep meaning to check this place out, but didn't this time either.....









This looks like my kind of place.....



Well, I made it to Senor Frog's, and as expected, with five ships in port, the place was packed! I bellied up to the bar and got my large green signature Senor Frog drink. I finished my drink in about ten minutes and then left. A few seconds after I snapped the following picture, I slipped and fell....hard.



Several people came over to help me, and after I took a minute to take stock and make sure nothing was broken, got me up. I swear that the four Bahama Mamas and the Senor Frog had nothing to do with it! :biggrin: I was fine, and luckily I only had a few scrapes and bruises. I thanked those that helped me, and embarrassed, and a little sore, I made my way back to the ship. Once back in our cabin, I raided the mini fridge and made myself a double rum and coke to calm my nerves, then laid down on the bed to wait for Patti.

Patti has made it back to the ship. Here is the Carnival Splendor's gangway.....



When Patti got back to our cabin, I told her about my little incident. Patti thought that Nassau is a bit "unlucky" for us, considering my fall, and Ryan's accident last year (see my Fascination review for details). She said she almost stumbled and fell while taking pictures on the way back to the ship. I guess doing photo reviews is a dangerous job!! Lol.

Patti stepped out on the balcony and took some of the same shots that I took during our arrival this morning. Due to the afternoon light, they came out much better than mine, plus the fact that she is a better photographer than me!!

Here are a couple of views of the lighthouse as we depart Nassau.....





We are sailing out of the harbor.....



Goodbye Nassau.....until next time!!



Patti captured the entire Atlantis complex in one shot.....



At this point the cameras were put away for almost the rest of the day.

We hung out with Barb and Mike enjoying drinks for about an hour, and then we made our way back to our cabin. We didn't feel like changing for dinner, so at about 7:30 we went up to the Lido Deck to eat.

Afterwards, Patti went to Pixels to check out our photos, and then went to check emails before heading back to the cabin. I went to play blackjack for a couple of hours, before calling it a night. I even won a little bit tonight. We had a great day today in Nassau (for the most part!!). Here is tonight's towel animal.....




Coming up next: Our 3rd sea day. We're sailing north to New York, and Gooooooooooallllllll X 5!!!

We're heading north back to New York.....



We were up at 7am. I stepped out on the balcony to get a shot of the sunrise, but the sun was already pretty high in the sky.....



We are planning to head to the Sea Day Brunch again today, but first, Patti wanted to put some laundry together to send out this morning. So I took this opportunity to grab the camera and take a walk around. This is the aft omelet line.....



The Continental Breakfast station.....



One of the aft Breakfast Grill lines.....
