Today, we wanted to highlight the Fitness Center and the Salon. We greatly appreciate the Fitness Center being open 7x24 and also the wonderful salon where over the years we have had our hair done several times. There are also several rooms associated with the spa offering many different treatments including massages. There is also a doctor who does treatments such as Botox and someone who does acupuncture.
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner in our room last evening organized by Aleks. This included Canapés& Champagne; a delicious dinner including salad and swordfish along with two special wines. Head Sommelier Jiri also came by to present the wine we enjoyed during the meal. A very special person joined us for dinner.
As for the entertainment, we had a spectacular lightening and thunderstorm. LOL.
We very much appreciate all Aleks does to make our experience so very special.
We also want to give a shoutout to our Penthouse Attendant Kristina who works tirelessly to keep our suite looking beautiful. She is a gem. She is also assisted by Stateroom Attendant Ivana. Last night she came extra early to make up our room for the evening and brought two other members of the Housekeeping Team to assist her. Everything was perfect and we greatly appreciate the entire housekeeping team who cleans all of the rooms inside the ship including guest rooms and all the public areas. This team work 7x24 with the night housekeeping team cleaning all of the public areas throughout the late evening and early morning hours.
This is a great team effort.
These are the Waterside Dinner Menus
We began the day with a workout for Keith followed by breakfast. We docked at one of the Nassau Piers.
From our verandah we could see the progress which has been made with the construction of the new pier and another cruise ship RCI Freedom Of The Seas made its way into port and docked next to us.
We were last in Nassau in July at the end of our two back-to-back cruises. This is still the main port of embarkation and disembarkation for these Bahama sailings.
Unlike in July when you go ashore you wear a blue paper wristband indicating you took your antigen test. Local security was there to direct you to and from the pier. On the way back the last security person said to Keith welcome back. Maybe she wants to work for Crystal Cruises. LOL.
Mainly on the streets were locals. In July most wore masks outside. This time around far less did but they all were carrying their masks.
While Keith went ashore to walk around Nassau as he did last time on turn around day, Anne Marie walked the Promenade Deck.
Following is today's daily Reflections Embarkation Program.
With three embarkation days the question is do we have Cobb Salad on each one? LOL. For today at least we decided we should. Tradition is very important.
Unfortunately it began to rain so no Paddle Tennis for Keith today.
As they say there is tomorrow.
