Wednesday, our last port to shop and we had not gotten anything yet to put into the boy’s treasure boxes. So we got up early and went to breakfast as soon as the dinning room opened. Each day at supper Ray came to my table with the next day’s menu so I could order what I wanted to eat the next day, that way there was no delay or question about what to pick. All I had to do was give the waiter my cabin number and my food was sent right up from the special kitchen for gluten free orders. I had eggs Benedict two morning, waffles one day, pancakes another, soft boiled eggs, and omelet always with a side order of either bacon or ham and a bowl of fresh fruit. Dinners were different every day, salmon, white fish, lamb, prime rib twice, I forget the other two but they were all good and started with a soup or salad. They do have wonderful food, we both gained three pounds that we are now trying to get rid of.
After the early breakfast we watched the ship come into the bay. They have such beautiful beaches here and such long ones.
As soon as the reached the dock they had to tie up to these anchors. The large hotel and beach area on the shore is a resort, the rest of the area is public beaches.
This anchor is for a ship that could come into the port later. The town is at the end of the pier. When you get to the end of the pier you turn left if you want to go down the main street where all the big stores are or you turn right for the local craft fair. That is the way we went and I got lots of things for the boys boxes so we never had to go down town. Going through the fair was long enough for me to walk.
Like all the docks for these big ships you have a long walk just to get to the first store. I had a great time shopping but Norman didn’t enjoy it at all. No one had a price on anything. If I found anything I liked you ask what they want for it, then you tell them it is more than you want to spend and they give you another price, then I’d ask how much it would be if I got three of them and they come down to the price I wanted. I got a bracket for each, a doll for Gina, Dyhana and one to send home for Prim, I got a couple tops, shells, magnet, two turtles and a few other little things and we got back to the ship in time to get a little food and go to the movies.
This is the movie we saw and it was good. Then we took a nap and got ready for supper and a show in the Epic Theater . The next day was a day at sea so we would sleep in and take it slow a day. We went to the magic work shop and played some slots. Friday, our last day was to be spent at Great Stirrup Cay, the private island belonging to NCL. Have a great day.
